Superior Performance and Handling
The Ford Escape is exceptionally comfortable to drive, especially considering its size. The suspension is smooth and steady, so you can take corners at high speeds without feeling bumps or vibrations in your seat. The engine is powerful enough to handle your daily commute, but it's not so powerful that it'll feel like a sports car.
The Escape comes in three trim levels: the SE, SEL, and Titanium. Each trim level is available with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. The SE is the base model of the three trim levels. It comes standard with features such as keyless entry, push-button start, automatic headlights and wipers, an eight-way power adjustable driver seat, and a six-speaker stereo system with satellite radio capability. The SEL is the mid-level trim level of the three trim levels. It comes standard with features such as alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, and dual-zone electronic automatic temperature control. The Titanium is the top-of-the-line trim level for the Escape. It comes standard with features such as power-adjustable pedals on both sides of the driver seat, leather seats, and heated front seats with a memory function that allows you to save your preferred seating position settings so your seat will automatically move to those settings when you sit down in your vehicle.
Technology and Safety for Peace of Mind
The Escape has excellent safety ratings. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the 2022 Ford Escape five out of five stars for overall safety, four out of five stars for frontal impact crash protection, and five out of five stars for side crash protection. In addition to an airbag system that protects the driver and passenger, dual front airbags for the front row help protect both your head and chest areas. The front seatbelt pretensioners help to secure occupants in their seats during sudden stops or collisions. The Escape is equipped with many advanced driver-assist systems that can help prevent collisions. These include adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, lane keep assist, rear cross-traffic alert, and more.
Lane Departure Warning System – alerts you if you drift out of your lane without signaling. This system can also help prevent accidents by applying the brakes when it senses that a collision may occur. Take a look at some of the standard features available for the SUV: Forward Collision Warning System – gives you an audible alert if there is a potential forward collision with another vehicle or object ahead of your car. The system also applies the brakes if needed to prevent an accident. Blind Spot Information System – uses sensors around the vehicle to detect vehicles in blind spots, which allows you to see these vehicles in the side mirrors while driving. The SUV features a rear cross-traffic alert system that monitors traffic behind you while backing out of a parking space or driveway. This helps prevent accidents when backing up in enclosed areas. The system includes a button on the overhead console that can be used to disable the feature if desired. The adaptive cruise control allows you to set your speed when driving on the highway and adjust your speed as vehicles ahead slow down or speed up. It’s great for long commutes because it keeps you from constantly having to push down on the gas pedal or brake pedal as you approach slower traffic.
Comfortable and Sporty Design
The Escape also has excellent visibility from inside the cabin, allowing you to see what's around you at all times. You can also adjust the mirrors, so they're exactly where you want them. The interior is spacious enough for up to five passengers, with plenty of legroom for everyone in the front or back seats. Even if someone tall sits behind the driver's seat, there will be enough room to stretch their legs comfortably during long road trips or commutes. The Escape has several options for entertainment systems that allow passengers to relax on long trips or have fun when riding around town. These include built-in satellite radio, SiriusXM satellite radio compatibility, USB ports for connecting devices such as phones and MP3 players, and Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free calling and audio streaming from compatible smart devices using voice commands through SYNC AppLink technology. The Ford Escape has a sporty design that stands out from other crossovers in its class. It comes standard with LED headlights, fog lights, and a liftgate spoiler. Optional packages add even more style with upgraded wheels and exhaust tips, as well as a panoramic glass roof that lets in more light on sunny days.
