The Ford Escape
Known as a compact crossover, the Ford Escape has great performance and utility with the added bonus of sport handling and a powerful turbocharged engine. The car is available in four different models, so you are able to find one that suits your exact needs. Looking for a sedan-type drive with SUV versatility? The Ford Escape has the best of both worlds with top-of-the-class cargo space and an optional all-wheel drive.
Driving The Escape
Strong brakes and handling allows you to feel like you are driving a sport sedan rather than a touring crossover. The brakes are smooth with linear stopping power, without the feel of lurching or grabbing. When you are stepping on the brakes, the casual slowdowns feel comfortable, and the emergency stops are safer. Looking for an off-road adventure? The Escape can handle dirt and modest inclines with its 22-degree approach angle.
This car seats five people comfortably, with good support and space. The interior’s quality is attractive, well-designed, and features quality materials everywhere you turn. You have the option of power-adjustable, heated, and/or leather-trimmed seats, and even a leather-wrapped steering wheel.
Staying safe is an important aspect of driving and Ford Escape’s safety features are endless. From back-up cameras to the MyKey system, you’ll stay comfortable while driving this SUV, or just being a passenger in it. The Escape has rear child safety locks with the additional safety canopy system curtain for first and second row airbags.
Ford’s voice-activated SYNC infotainment system is present in the newest Escape with a 4.2-inch display screen, USB port, and a six-speaker audio for maximum entertainment purposes. Both Apply CarPlay and Android Auto are compatible with the Escape, and the dual-zone automatic climate control helps you feel comfortable while traveling no matter the length of the ride.
Even though the Ford Escape is on the smaller side of an SUV, the towing capacity is that of a larger car—it can haul up to 3,500 pounds when it is equipped with the Class II towing package. The Escape’s towing capabilities allow you to have peak performance with specific trim levels, and the 4WD System gives you the added benefit of that extra traction level to give you more security during a towing process.
