As for draining the batteries on the highway, I'm not too sure about that. I didn't have our Escape ( work vehicle ) out on the highway for an extended period of time.

I know on the highway they do get the same economy than the gassers. Maybe even alittle less with the CVT ( I think it's called that ) transmission.
It revs at 2300 ish @ 60 mph.

What do you do for work Smiggs

Sorry Dad,

But we are here to talk about how the Explorer is getting out sold by the Prius, not what I do for a living.

Please stay on topic.....
