The Ford Escape takes convenience to a new level. To open the available foot-activated liftgate, simply wave your foot under the bumper when the available Intelligent Access key is in your pocket.
Escape seats five passengers with its front bucket seats and 60/40 rear seats. Fold both rear seat backs down and you have 66.3 cu. ft. of space for carrying cargo. If you don’t need all of this space, you can still seat one or two rear passengers and have extra room for cargo.
The Escape is equipped to keep up with you. It has a 168-horsepower, 2.5L Duratec® engine, or you have your choice of two available EcoBoost® engines. They’re paired with a 6-speed SelectShift® automatic transmission, providing the sportiness and control of a manual. The Escape also has a feature you can’t see, but will appreciate — Active Grille Shutters. They help reduce drag and enhance efficiency.
The available technology features in the Escape can do everything from alerting you to vehicles in your blind spot to opening the available class-exclusive hands-free, foot-activated liftgate with a kick under the rear bumper. Available SYNC® with MyFord Touch® features voice-activated technology (button-initiated) that helps keep you connected while you keep your eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel. And for audiophiles, the available 390-watt Audio System from Sony® with HD Radio™ Technology provides static-free, razor-sharp sound reception.
Whether it’s towing a 3,500-lb. trailer, accommodating passengers and their cargo or helping provide control on rain- or snow-slick roads, the Escape is up to the task. Features include rear seats that fold for cargo on demand, an available Intelligent 4WD System that adjusts torque distribution, Torque Vectoring Control that redistributes traction when needed and trailer sway control that helps you tow with confidence.
The Escape, with its smartly placed lines and sleek silhouette, appears to be in motion even when parked. Available HID headlamps, optional wheel choices and the SE Chrome Package complement that look. Step inside. The interior combines sophisticated style and comfort with versatility — leather trim is available and the second-row bench in all models folds for additional cargo capacity.
