Edmunds.com this week gathered a list of the top 10 SUVs (including crossovers) with the best combined gas mileage using the EPA's miles-per-gallon rating for city and highway travel.
The Ford Escape Hybrid leads the pack with a combined MPG of 32. Check out the rest of the list and make sure these are vehicles you're considering if shopping for an SUV.

3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum MoneyThe key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:
Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted NetworkSelect the vehicle you're interested in to see if there are local dealers in my network who will provide you with their best upfront price. You will get direct access to an internet sales manager who you can further negotiate with online (no need to visit dealership).
Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirectTrueCar, and CarsDirect are my top 2 online price quote recommendations. These services show you pre-negotiated prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually pretty decent. But remember, you can still negotiate further.
