2013 Ford EscapeJames Polletta - San Diego, CA09/17/2016
I have been a big believer in V8 engines all my life. Now technology has caught up to the big motors. The Eco-Boost 2.0L Inner-cooled turbo engine handles all types of conditions. It runs smooth and efficient on the road and keeping it at 2000rpm on the highway it easily runs at 65mph and when you want power to pass and accelerate the turbo really makes it a powerhouse to drive. The 2013 had complaints early due to all the electronics and technology packed into a newly designed vehicle, I've had no issues what so ever. The stereo sounds great and I am quite happy in my e selection.
It's ok..... had high hopes
2013 Ford EscapeAPRIL OLSON - LAS VEGAS, NV04/03/2017
I liked the style of this car. The inside is very nice. The back seats recline slightly which is nice. They also go down. A lot of other SUV's I looked at did not have this feature.
The air vents are oddly high in the front. I have had a lot of issues with connecting blue tooth. And now my cruise control does not work.
Very comfortable, plenty of power
2014 Ford EscapeDavid G - Lenexa, KS08/24/2016
I bought the 4WD Ecoboost for comfort in my job commute and to assure I had needed power for on/off ramps, etc. The 240 hp engine is very quiet and reliable. Runs better on premium and it 'likes' the gas a bit more than my old Civic but the comfort and power worth the gas mileage being in low 20's

The Ford Escape is a five-passenger crossover SUV with sleek, modern styling, good handling, decent cargo room and plenty of features. As a mainstay of Ford's lineup since the beginning of the 21st century, it holds its own in a range of SUVs.
Ford Escape History
The Ford Escape was first introduced in 2000. Initially based on pickup trucks, the body was on-frame. It was redesigned in 2007 to be more competitive against newer compact SUVs. This meant taking style cues from its competitors more than integrating anything new under the hood. The most recent version of the Ford Escape ensured that the engine was fully revamped to be more powerful and that the cabin was as feature-rich as the other crossover SUVs.
How It Drives
The Ford Escape is extremely fuel efficient with the four-cylinder engine. The difference in fuel economy between transmissions is negligible, but manual transmissions do typically get slightly more fuel efficient tanks. The interior is comfortable with a quiet cabin.
