Good choice to consider Glen, I don't think you'll be disappointed.
My wife had an AWD '06 Escape with the V6 and loved it, had no issues whatsoever in the four years she had it.
She had an '88 Cavalier , followed by an '01 Cavalier, prior to finally listening to me (lol) and taking the Escape for a test drive.
She always thought an SUV would be too bulky, but once she was in the Escape and actually drove it, she was impressed with how much she could see and how easy it was to drive,park and maneuver.
Shortly after that, it was in the driveway.
I threw some snow tires on it for the winter and couldn't believe how sure footed it was with the AWD, so I'd say definitely consider 4WD or AWD.
