ESCAPE LETS YOU DO WHAT YOU WANT TO DO.
The Ford Escape is engineered to fit your on-the-go lifestyle, from its versatile seating and cargo combinations to its ample performance. Engine options include a 2.5L I-4 with intake variable cam design, a 1.5L turbocharged EcoBoost® engine or a 2.0L twin-scroll EcoBoost rated at 245 horsepower. Handling control comes courtesy of standard AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control,™ Curve Control and Torque Vectoring Control. For added traction, there’s the available Intelligent 4-Wheel-Drive System. And if you need to tow, the available 2.0L EcoBoost Class II Trailer Tow Package provides a maximum tow rating of up to 3,500 lbs.
Choose the Escape model that matches your driving style: the Escape S and 168-hp 2.5L I-4 with intake variable cam timing (iVCT); the SE or SEL, powered by the 1.5L EcoBoost® for balanced power and efficiency;* and the 245-hp** 2.0L EcoBoost with Twin-Scroll technology that gathers exhaust from pairs of cylinders in alternating sequence, maximizing pulse energy to the turbine wheel for quick torque delivery. The six-speed SelectShift® transmission offers the convenience of an automatic or the sporty feel of a manual. Plus, EcoBoost engines feature Auto Start-Stop Technology that can help lower fuel consumption and vehicle emissions during city driving when your vehicle comes to a stop. The engine shuts off and then seamlessly restarts when you step on the accelerator.
*EPA-estimated rating of 23 City/30 HWY/26 combined mpg, FWD, 1.5L EcoBoost. Actual mileage will vary.
**Horsepower achieved with 93-octane fuel.
INTELLIGENT 4WD SYSTEM
The available Intelligent 4WD System continuously monitors traction and road conditions every 16 milliseconds. It can transfer torque from front wheels to rear wheels as needed to ensure a precise blend of handling and traction at all times.
CURVE CONTROL AND TORQUE VECTORING CONTROL
Curve Control can sense if you’re going too fast and slow the vehicle down using throttle reduction and anti-lock braking. Once you’re into the curve, G-forces tend to transfer more traction to the outside tires than to the inside ones. Torque Vectoring Control enhances this traction by transferring torque to the wheels that have the most grip, reducing understeer and forcing the front end to hug the inside of the curve.
ESCAPE MAKES IT SO EASY.
Escape boasts a number of available driver-assist features that make getting wherever easy, effortless and enjoyable. From available SYNC® 3 and Ford+Alexa to FordPass™ Connect with Wi-Fi hotspot,* next-level technology offerings make Escape one smart SUV. For added confidence on the road, you’ll appreciate the Ford Safe and Smart™ Package, BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with cross-traffic alert, Lane-Keeping System, adaptive cruise control and forward collision warning with brake support, and enhanced active park assist.
BLIS® WITH CROSS-TRAFFIC ALERT
The Ford Safe and Smart™ Package includes BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with cross-traffic alert. This feature uses radar to identify a vehicle detected in your blind spot and alerts you with an indicator light in the appropriate exterior mirror. Cross-traffic alert also uses radar to detect a vehicle passing behind when you’re slowly backing out of a driveway or parking place, but only when a trailer is not connected to the vehicle. If crosstraffic sensors detect a vehicle approaching from up to 15 yards away, you will be audibly and visually alerted.
Available enhanced active park assist is designed to help you park in a variety of situations. With minimal actions on your part, Escape can virtually steer itself into or out of a parking spot.
ENHANCED ACTIVE PARK ASSIST
- Parallel parking* scans for an appropriate space, signals when one is found, then helps steer you into the space, while you control the gear shifter, accelerator and brakes.
- Park out assist provides instructions on shifting and moving forward/back to help steer you out of a tight spot.
- Reverse perpendicular parking finds a suitable space and helps you back in.
- Side Sensing System emits a warning when you get too close to an object on either side of your vehicle.
