You'll find the Ford SUV in an all-wheel-drive model with sophisticated gear for all your off-road needs in Charlevoix. Additionally, this luxurious vehicle comes with one of four powertrains. The most recent additions include the hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions that use both electric motors and gas. These new SUV models ensure you save more at the pump.

What's New?

Apart from the two new powertrains, the new Ford Escape has some of the most recent features available in modern SUVs. Ford added the Co-Pilot360 Plus Package, essential for some of the top-tier safety features in the vehicle. The Escape SUV also features traffic sign recognition and adaptive cruise control for your East Jordan travels.

  

Moreover, Ford added some technological features to the new Escape. You'll enjoy a hands-free liftgate when shopping, and the exterior features LED lighting while driving in Boyne City. The new version comes with a trailer tow package, optional for the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. You can also opt for the 19-inch wheel design.

Performance

The updated Ford Escape comes with one of four powertrains. The standard version is a 181-horsepower, 1.5-liter three-cylinder turbocharged engine. You'll get this version in either a front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive setup. It averages 7.7 seconds to get to 60 mph. The next powertrain is the 250-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine. Its engine is powerful enough to average 5.7 seconds to get to 60 mph. These gas engines have an eight-speed automatic transmission for your Kewadin commutes.

  

The next two engines are the hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions. These two powertrains come powered by an electric motor that turns on when the vehicle doesn't need a lot of gas. They have a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine supplemented by two electric motors that produce up to 221 horsepower. The battery packs average 14.4kWh and can power the Escape to up to 37 miles.

Fuel Economy

The standard version of the Escape is more fuel-efficient than many of the other non-hybrid models available. The front-wheel-drive models average an EPA-estimated 30 mpg, and the all-wheel-drive models average 28 mpg. However, the turbocharged three-cylinder engine Escape has higher fuel efficiency and averages 35 mpg on the highway. The plug-in hybrid offers the best fuel efficiency since it averages 44 mpg in cities.

Interior and Comfort

The Ford Escape has an extravagantly styled cabin with enough legroom for front and rear-seat passengers. Moreover, the interior also features luxurious seats made from a high textured cloth and faux leather blend. Some of the top-tier models have seats made from genuine leather. The cargo space can hold up to eight bags, sufficient for long and short drives around town. You can also create more cargo space by folding the rear seats.

Infotainment and Connectivity

Although the standard version of the Escape comes with a 4.3-inch radio system, the high-end versions feature an 8-inch touchscreen system. The system arrives fitted with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, allowing you to sync your phone to the system. You can listen to your favorite music and podcasts as you cruise from one destination to your next one. Ford also introduced a smartphone app that will enable you to start or power off the car when in your house. Through the app, you can also schedule maintenance services.

Safety Features

One of the notable safety features is the head-up display that prevents you from getting distracted while driving. The technology displays your vehicle's stats on the windshield. Additionally, safety features such as lane assist, forward collision warning, and blind-spot monitoring come with many of the new Escape models.
