5 Reasons we love the 2018 Ford Escape

Slotted between the all-new Ford EcoSport and the three-row Ford Explorer, the 2018 Ford Escape is a compact SUV that's perfect for the shopper who needs a decent amount of cargo space but still wants a vehicle that's easy to drive and park in a busy downtown. Below are five things we love about this model:

  1. Engine Options: when you buy or lease a Ford Escape, you'll have several engines to choose from. The base model has a 2.5L with 168 horsepower. The SE and SEL take it up a slight notch with a 1.5L EcoBoost that has 179 horsepower. If you really want to crank, get the Titanium which has a 2.0L EcoBoost with 245 horsepower!
  2. Cargo Space: we already alluded to the Escape's spacious nature. With all seats up, you'll get 34 cubic feet of cargo space. Put the back seats down and you'll have 68 cubic feet! There's plenty of room for everyone and everything.
  3. Plentiful Package Options: with some brands what you see on the list of standard features is what you get, but with the Ford Escape you'll have plenty of packages to choose from. All trims except for the base can add on the Ford Safe and Smart Package for advanced safety technologies. The SE trim has packages for technology and appearance. If you want to tow, all trims minus the base can add on a Class II Trailer Package.
  4. Smart Phone Integration: if you get a trim that comes with Ford's SYNC®3, you'll not only get an 8-inch touchscreen but also Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. Not all brands have these integrations either!
  5. Leave Your Keys Inside: Nowadays it's practically invisible, so we're here to tell you that Ford still has a keypad you can use to access your car. We love this little feature that lets you safely lock your keys away, which is perfect if you're going on a hike, to the beach, or to a big event; basically anywhere where you don't want to risk dropping your keys.

Now that you have a taste of what the Ford Escape has to offer, stop into our dealership this week for a test drive!
