Ford Escape Review

Price Starting at $23,600

The Escape is incredibly versatile and balances technology, design and engineering with intelligent, intuitive controls. This compact SUV provides large interior with plenty of storage and ability to tow up to 3500 lb. With the frequently changing weather of the NW it is always good to have a vehicle with four wheel drive abilities. The intelligent 4WD system of the Ford Escape is fantastic.? Many of the Gresham Ford staff personally own Ford Escapes because of their reliable versatile reviews. The available panoramic Vista roof helps too.

The kinetic exterior design of the redesigned Ford Escape conveys a sense of athletic grace even when it's standing still. The sleek, muscular shape of the Escape contributes to improved fuel economy, cargo space and room for your dog too. The redesigned Escape is not as boxy as its predecessor but still as popular in Oregon.? The available hands-free liftgate makes cargo loading and unloading easy. The materials and finishes create an inviting environment that looks sophisticated and modern.

Elevating Style and Sophistication with the Ford Escape

Escape offers two technologically advanced high output EcoBoost engines: 1.6L I-4 and the 2.0L I-4. Both engines feature the power and performance Escape Owners have come to love. The 1.6L Eco-Boost I-4 with Ti-VCT (Twin Independent Variable Camshaft Timing) delivers 178 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. The 2.0L Eco-Boost I-4, also with Ti-VCT provides 240 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque. Every Escape comes standard with EcoMode that assists the driver in operating the vehicle more efficiently and better the overall fuel economy. It constantly monitors characteristics of gear changing, anticipation of traffic conditions and speeds while driving. 

Ford Escape reviews agree that the high quality engineering is evident inside and out in this compact SUV. With benefits like "filled for life" transmission fuel the cost of owning the 2016 Ford Escape is lower than ever. Technology like the Active Grille Shutter System helps to improve efficiency by countering wind resistance and maximizing the aerodynamic efficiency of the grille opening and the engine cooling system.

Ford Escape MPG
Ford Escapes equipped with the 2.5L I-4 Automatic Front Wheel Drive equipment enjoy 22 MPG in the city, 31 MPG on the highway with a combined 25 miles per gallon. The 1.6L Eco-Boost Front Wheel Drive attains 23 MPG in the city, 32 MPG on the highway and 26 MPG combined. The 1.6L Eco-Boost Four Wheel Drive reaches 22 MPG in the city, 29 MPG on the highway and a combined MPG of 25.? Escape with the 2.0L Eco-Boost engine andFront Wheel Drive reach 22 MPG in the city, 30 MPG on the highway and 25 MPG combined ratings. The 2.0L Eco-Boost with Four Wheel Drive gets 21 MPG in the city, 28 MPG on the highway and 23 MPG combined. Actual gas mileage will vary. Unfortunately there is not an Escape Hybrid currently offered but you see that the MPG for the Eco-Boost engines come close.

Hands-Free Liftgate is one of the favorite features for many Escape Owners. When the vehicle senses the key fob near the vehicle, you just swing your foot under the sensors under the rear bumper. By kicking a foot under and away from the rear bumper and through the sensors field, the circuit completes and opens or closes the rear hatch door. This comes in very handy when your hands are full and the ground is wet, like so many days in Oregon.

Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) with Cross-Traffic Alert alerts drivers if another vehicle is detected in the "blind zone" by utilizing two radar sensors located behind each rear wheel. The side view mirror indicator illuminates when a vehicle in an adjacent lane is detected in the blind zone from behind. The system automatically is engaged when the Escape is placed into drive.
