Ford Escape Summary

The Ford Escape offers everything SUV shoppers are looking for: room for five passengers, lots of cargo space, solid towing capacity and the latest technology to improve safety and convenience. It also offers EcoBoost technology to help reduce fuel consumption (which is otherwise a bit high) and a six-speed automatic transition. The 1.5 L engine lacks power, but an available turbo engine improves response. A range of cold-weather features—from block heaters to windshield wiper de-icers—will appeal to Canadian drivers when they need to face the elements. The Escape is smaller, and therefore easier to park, than many SUVs.
