The Ford Escape is a mid-size sport-utility vehicle, which incorporates the latest technology and style; setting a high standard in the SUV category.

The five-passenger Escape is available in S, SE, and Titanium trims, in either front or four-wheel drive. Engine choices start with the 168-hp 2.5-liter four-cylinder, followed by a 179-hp 1.6-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine, and a 245-hp 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine. All variations are paired with a six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission. Standard equipment on all Escapes includes the SYNC communications and entertainment system with 4.2-inch screen, remote keyless entry, and eco-mode. Standard safety features include 7 airbags, automatic headlights, rear view camera, AdvanceTrac stability control, and tire pressure monitor.

The refreshed Escape has better fuel economy, increased interior storage space, and re-designed center console and controls.

Quick Quotes
Perhaps best of all, the latest Sync 3 infotainment system - which debuted for 2016 - offers a vastly more sensible, intuitive, and quick-reacting interface, including a pinch-to-zoom map feature on the 8.0-inch touchscreen and improved voice recognition.

If all these changes are sufficient to lure a few thousand millennials and boomers (currently the two biggest compact CUV buying groups) out of Honda showrooms, Ford's entry just might escape the runner-up platform on the sales podium.
- Motor Trend, CarsDirect
As Ford admitted at the start, there are 21 small SUV models for the Escape to compete against. To stay on top means unloading the kitchen sink, and Ford has certainly done that.

Full Review


The Ford Escape, unlike most compact crossovers, is more like a tall wagon with rakish styling and sporty handling.Competitors include the Honda CR-V, Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, Toyota RAV4 and Mazda CX-5, but the Escape offers the most responsive steering, crispest handling, and best body control (the CX-5 is a close second).The Escape also has the firmest ride; you don't get that sporty handling for nothing.

The 2017 Ford Escape gets freshened for the model year.Revised styling in front gives it the striking family looks Ford recently copied from Aston Martin.That small styling revolution for Ford goes back to the 2013 Ford Fusion, but it isn't dated yet.In fact, it might never be; the Aston grille shape goes back 50 years.

There are two new engines, a 1.5-liter replacing a 1.6, and a new version of the 2.0-liter.The new engines don't make much more horsepower than before, now 179 hp for the 1.5-liter, and 245 hp for the 2.0 liter, but they are more efficient than before.There is also a 2.5-liter making 168 horsepower, which only comes with front-wheel drive.

All-wheel drive is available with the 1.5-liter and 2.0-liter engines.

There are new available infotainment and safety features for 2017 Ford Escape models.Ford's Sync Connect now enables remote access to the car's functions via smartphone.New safety systems for 2017 Escape include adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with braking, lane keeping, active park assist that can steer the car into a parking space.A warning on the dash goes off if the car senses the driver is tired.Blind-spot monitoring continues to be available.

The 2016 Escape only received four stars overall for crashworthiness from the federal NHTSA, and a lowly Poor rating from the insurance industry's IIHS in the small overlap front test (hitting a telephone pole or edge of a wall).

Fuel mileage is decent but not a reason to buy the car.The three engines get about the same: the 1.5-liter is EPA-rated at 26 miles per gallon Combined, the 2.0-liter at 25 mpg, and the 2.5-liter at 24 mpg.If a purchase were measured on this just this basis, the 2.0-liter EcoBoost is the clear winner for us because it offers so much more power.
