Ford Escape Reviews

The Ford Escape is a stylish midsize SUV that's ideal for everyone from families to commuters. So, how do you know if it's right for you?

To show drivers in Wexford, Zelienople, and Butler everything it has to offer, Baierl Ford put together a series of Ford Escape reviews below.

Ford Escape Specs

The Ford Escape offers three powertrains. Each one works alongside a versatile and smart shifting 6-speed SelectShift® automatic transmission.

The base option is a 2.5L I-4 engine with intelligent Camshaft Timing (iVCT) that gets up to 168 horsepower. The second choice is a 1.5L EcoBoost® I-4 engine that can produce up to 179 horsepower. The most powerful engine available is a 2.0L EcoBoost® I-4 that can generate up to 245 horsepower.

Ford Escape Trim Levels

There are four available trim levels for the Ford Escape. The Ford Escape S is the base trim. It runs on the 2.5L iVCT engine. The Escape SE upgrades both your power and fuel economy to the first EcoBoost® option. The third trim level, the Escape SEL, bumps up the size and functionality of your infotainment system. Finally, the Ford Escape Titanium provides you with the most power, comfort, and luxury. 

Ford Escape Towing Capacity

The Ford Escape has a towing capacity of up to 3,500 pounds. With this kind of strength, you can bring a fishing boat or a couple dirt bikes with you on your vacation.

Whether you're hitting the water, going off-roading, or towing a small trailer with extra cargo, you'll be able to tow with confidence with Trailer Sway Control. It keeps whatever you're hauling safe and in line with your SUV.

Ford Escape Fuel Economy

With its iVCT design, the Ford Escape's base engine can get up to an EPA-estimated 21 MPG city and 29 MPG highway. The Ford EcoBoost® series  lives up to its name by increasing your fuel economy up to an EPA-estimated 23 MPG city and 30 MPG highway.

Escape Interior

Inside the Ford Escape, there's seating for five people across two rows of seats. This comfortable interior offers either premium cloth or leather trim and features 43.1 inches of front legroom and 37.3 inches of rear legroom.

Behind the rear seats, you'll have 34 cubic feet of space in the trunk for your cargo. It's easy to make room for more though. The convenient 60/40 split-fold seats can help you accommodate up to 68 cubic feet of cargo room.

Up front, you'll have a high-resolution touchscreen on your dashboard for your infotainment system. Its Bluetooth® compatible, so you can sync your phone and access all your favorite music and apps with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™.
