Eric Loeffler, chief engineer for Ford Motor Co., talks about the all new 2008 Ford Escape Mercury Mariner. Many new features make up the 08 model, such as; all new sheet metal exterior, power steering, and ice blue dash lighting. Fuel economy has also gone up, with help from a more aerodynamic design, and the availability of a hybrid model. The gas model gets a 28MPG freeway, while the hybrid gets 34-36MPG highway. It is also quieter, with a 15% improvement in sound reduction.
