Are you looking for a more practical vehicle? If so the 2018 Ford Escape is made to order with an abundance of convenience features, plenty of flexible cargo space, and increased performance.
New Ford Escape models are equipped with Ford’s SYNC® 3 system with Wi-Fi® Hotspot connectivity. This easy-to-use and responsive voice-activated technology works in tandem with Ford’s available navigation system to help drivers find specific locations, such as restaurants, with a simple destination entry. The new Sync 3 system is also Apple Car Play and Android Auto ready to connect with smartphone apps for a variety of information and entertainment options. More connectivity is available through the SYNC® 3 AppLink® with the Ford+Alexa app for instant navigation, traffic information and control of Smart Home devices. The SYNC® 3 AppLink® also connects with Waze, the popular crowd-sourced navigation and traffic app.
A variety of cargo passenger space options are easily configured inside the new Ford Escape. Convenient 60/40 split rear seat backs can be left upright for maximum passenger space or folded down for increased cargo space. With both seatbacks upright the Escape allows ample space for four passengers and 34 cu. ft. of cargo room. Fold down both rear seats for a flat load surface of 68 cu. ft. of cargo room or fold down one seatback for the perfect combination of expanded space for one or two passengers and increased cargo area. The 2018 Ford Escape is available with roof rack side rails and crossbars for transporting even more items like bulky sporting gear or oversized luggage.
Several engine options are available for the new Ford Escape. Escape S models are powered by a 165-hp 2.5L I-4 engine with intake variable cam timing (i-VCT). New SE and SEL models are powered by either Ford’s 1.5L EcoBoost® engine for balanced power and efficiency or the ultra-powerful 245-hp 2.0L EcoBoost engine. The EcoBoost engines feature auto start-stop technology that reduces fuel consumption and vehicle emissions. All models are equipped with Ford’s six-speed SelectShift® transmission for convenient automatic or sporty manual transmission options. All models are available with an Intelligent 4WD System that continuously monitors traction and road conditions every 16 milliseconds. When needed, the system transfers torque from the front wheels to the rear wheels for the best handling and traction.
