Ford Escape Performance
The turbocharged EcoBoost® engines, which produce 179 horsepower and 245 horsepower respectively, might be better choices for those who do a lot of highway and pass-and-merge driving. The auto start-stop technology can provide better fuel economy numbers when driving in the city, as the engine will shut off when stopped at a light. The available four-wheel drive system is capable of monitoring road conditions, with torque transferred from front to rear wheels for the perfect blend of handling and traction.
Interior Amenities and Cargo Space
The roomy 2018 Ford Escape cabin provides enough space for those in the front and back. With room for five, you’ll find 43.1 inches of legroom for the driver and front passenger, with 37.3 inches in the second row. From brief trips to the grocery store to carrying larger items, cargo space is always important. The 60/40 split-folding rear seat backs are flexible, with 34 cu. ft. of space when they’re up. Overall, there’s a maximum 68 cu. ft. of cargo space behind the first row.
To help see what’s happening behind the Escape, the standard rearview camera is a major help. Put the car in reverse and the camera will transmit images in the center stack. The available reverse sensing system will beep if near an object when backing up. This is a standard feature on the SEL and Titanium models.
The Escape is a smart SUV thanks to the many driver assistive features that make life a little easier. The available Ford Safe and Smart Package uses convenience features like driver-activated Front Rain-Sensing Windshield Wipers, Auto High-Beam Headlights, and Blind Spot Protection with Cross-Traffic Alert.
The lane-keeping system is able to alert you to any drifting from a lane that’s unintentional. The steering wheel will vibrate if you’re drifting close to another lane marker, with steering torque to guide you back to the lane you’re in. The available Adaptive Cruise Control allow drivers to set a speed and distance to maintain from the car in front of you. When traffic comes to a halt ahead, the car will automatically slow down and resume the speed set when the traffic clears.
