Power and Performance

The new Ford Escape comes with a couple of powertrain configurations. Going for the base models will get you the standard 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine, turbocharged to produce 181 horsepower. You may also consider the slightly more capable 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine. This engine has a commendable 250 horsepower and gives the Escape a towing capability of up to 3,500 pounds. The Ford SUV is available with either all-wheel or front-wheel drive. An eight-speed automatic transmission comes standard with both engines. Enthusiasts looking for a hybrid option may consider the 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, which comes with an electric motor to produce 221 horsepower. This hybrid powertrain is available with a plug-in option and has an EV range of nearly 37 miles.


Base models of the Ford Escape come with a 4.2-inch display, which acts as the primary interface for the infotainment system. The infotainment system offers an upgrade for higher trims, introducing an 8-inch touchscreen display that supports the SYNC® 3 infotainment system with compatibility with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. This system also supports AM/FM radio to keep you entertained as you drive to Rockledge.

The small Escape has options such as a head-up display, a 12.3-inch digital gauge display, in-dash navigation, and a 10-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system. The Ford model also offers an intuitive AWD Disconnect feature on relevant models, automatically switching to front-wheel drive when AWD is not necessary. There are five selectable drive modes: Normal, Eco, Sport, Slippery, and Deep Snow/Sand. It would be best to note that all Ford Escape SUVs come with smartphone app compatibility, increasing the users' functionality scope.


The new SUV's wide and tall stance gives it a spacious cabin that can seat up to five individuals. The interior is notably user-friendly, allowing occupants to draw out full utility. The seats are comfortable and well-raised to allow for better all-around visibility. The Escape uses quality materials to achieve a simple but luxurious cabin. The seats on base models are cloth, while higher trims are faux leather. The iconic Ford Escape uses a rotary gear selector, which is equally easy to use. You can move the rear seats back to increase rear legroom or move forward to increase cargo space. You may fold these seats in a split 60 to 40 configuration. The 33.5 cubic feet of cargo space at the rear can increase to a maximum of 65.4 feet on non-hybrid models.


The sophisticated Ford Escape's exterior takes on a classic aerodynamic design with slightly modernized accents. The Ford badging sits atop the eye-catching grille, reflecting a look complemented by the LED headlights on each end. Going for the SE Sport Appearance package adds 19-inch alloy wheels and black exterior accents. Its size and wheelbase make it easy to maneuver while driving around Palm Bay.
