Curious here as well Biz.

My dealer has a couple of the Explorers on the lot with the 2.0L. I may have to go drive one this week while I'm off.

I drove a Range Rover Evoque with the 2.0 Ecoboost. It was decent, Had good power but not anything to rave about. You couldn't tell by sound that it was a turbo. I feel that the 2.0 eco will be a good match for the new Escape, which should be lighter than the Evoque or Edge.

It has done well up to recent in my mom's Edge. Pushing close to 90,00 miles, this is the first issue, but it is an expensive one. Code 299, turbo underboost. It is in the shop right now with a warranty disagreement going on... Shop thinks they might know but aren't completely certain what the issue is, and Ford warranty doesn't want to commit until they know what they are paying for... She was getting high 20's into low 30's on occasion. With this coming on though, I am afraid of what costs may be down the line if we have to stand this kind of repair on our own. I had that concern when it was bought though... We typically keep our vehicles until they can no longer be reliable. Her 02 Buick went almost 400,000 miles with no severe issues. What finally took it out was an aftermarket piece, those stupid plastic elbows from the intake to the alternator mount to the heater hoses...

I drove a 2.0 in a Fusion, and it hauled. I'm thinking I'd love one.

I have a 2013 Expy EB and love it. It is not a power wagon, but I love the 24 MPG city and 30 MPG back roads. I get 25-26 MPG on the interstate.

44,000 on a 2012 explorer. Wife is a photographer so it a true mix if town, idling, interstate. 24mpg average. you can milk 28 out of it if you set it to 67 and let it do its thing. We didn't start to see the numbers rise until we hit 30,000. Its big and quick. sometimes it feels a little underpowered but push a little more and let the rpm's rise and its off to the races.

I've never driven a Fusion with 2.0L Eco, it does OK in Escape, but I wouldn't want it in a Edge or Explorer. IMO, 122 cid 4 banger too small to power these vehicles.

31.5 MPG? Musta been cruising downhill. Best hwy MPG: 25.5 and I drive like Uncle Fudd. Current overall MPG: 21.5.

Which is poor when considering that my former 2011 F150 Lariat 5.0L 2WD Stupor Crew that weighed over 6,000 lbs., achieved 14.7 overall MPG.

Which would you rather drive, puddle jumper or elephantine behemoth? Puddle jumper easier to get in/out off, but that's about it.

btw: "New" Escape sold in Europe since 2008 as the Kuga. Google, it looks exactly the same, but Eco's not available, only 2.5L.

My mom's edge is averaging right around 30 with mostly interstate cruising. It has plenty of pep with the 2.0. The turbo failed on it, and the mileage improved once the new turbo was in. Before the turbo change it averaged mid to upper 20's.

I have a '13 Escape 4WD with a 2.0 Ecoboost. 15,000 miles (in 3 months) and so far so good.

Took it on a huge road trip from Minneapolis to Lake Tahoe and back via Seattle and Denver. It climbs effortlessly in the mountains, and the cruise control is awesome on downgrades - it will downshift and hold the set speed down a pretty steep hill without having to ever touch the brakes.

My average mileage is 26.4 MPG.

wife has one in the 2014 escape awd. I love this engine. Power is nice, throttle is crisp and there isn't any hesitation. It does love gas though. It just broke 1000 miles so i hope the mpg's go up. I averaged 21mpg on this last tank. most of it was highway.

My dad has the 2.0 Ecoboost in his Focus ST (same engine as the Fusion, Escape, Taurus, Edge, missing any??)
That car is a rocket ship. Even though the ST gets a more agressive tune to match the nature of the car, I don't see why Ford wouldn't give all the 2.0EB cars the same power.
They are stout motors with a big saftey margin; some of the modified STs are pushing 330 whp on stock turbos!
