Drivers have three engine options in the Ford Escape.

The base 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine produces a respectable 168 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque. Drivers who want more performance can tap into the 1.5-liter EcoBoost® four-cylinder engine's 179 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque. Those who want even more power will find the 2.0-liter EcoBoost® four-cylinder engine's 245 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque right up their alley.

The Ford Escape is available with four-wheel drive and can tow up to 3,500 pounds when properly equipped.


Designed for versatility, the Ford Escape features an athletic design and sporty styling that make it hard to miss on the road. Elongated headlights and a bold grille form an intimidating stare that few drivers can ignore. An available hands-free liftgate allows drivers on-the-go to quickly access their cargo bay.


The Ford Escape features a generous amount of cargo space, up to 68 cubic feet, which makes it the perfect option for a family road trip. Advanced technologies, such as Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ allow drivers to stay connected on the road at all times.


The 2018 Ford Escape brings several class-exclusive safety features, such as the SOS Post-Crash Alert System™ to the road. Drivers can add more safety technologies, such as Enhanced Active Park Assist with Parallel Parking capability to their crossover.
