Ford Escape
Sticker price: $20,435 - $27,670
Wholesale price: $19,245 - $25,625
Market price: $15,444 - $21,559

The Escape got a sharper looking exterior for the 2008 model year, then got some engine and transmission upgrades for the 2009 model year, making this generally good - and popular - small crossover a kick to drive, too.

Besides a reasonably roomy and a very functional interior, the Escape also offers top-notch protection. It's an Insurance Institute "Top Safety Pick."

A 4-cylinder Escape gets a very good 28 miles per gallon on the highway and 22 in the city. The hybrid version gets 31 on the highway and 34 in the city - yes, its fuel economy is better in the city - but you'll pay much, much more for it.
