AAA names ford escape hybrid top SUV $30,000

AAA selects the Ford Escape Hybrid as it's top SUV priced at $30,000. AAA judges it's cars based on several criteria, including handling, ride and performance, value, braking and fuel economy. The amusing part of this list is the choice for 'cool' car. Not the choice, but the category!

I first saw this story at autoblog, who got it from the autochannel.
