Ford Escape Hybrid Lease Program needed!

I want to lease a base Ford Escape AWD HYBRID, but the residual price is so low and/or there are no Ford lease programs, so the lease price is so high that I can lease a Lexus RX450H AWD Hybrid for the same lease price. The RX450H costs $54,000, but is too big for my needs! Why does Ford refuse to have a reasonable lease program for the Escape Hybrid? Hybrids are relatively new, so I don't want to own it, I just want to lease it for 3 years, and then give it back!!
