Description: Used 2018 Ford Escape SEL for sale - $19,998, 34,158 miles with Turbo Charged Engine, Leather Seats, Satellite Radio Ready, Parking Sensors, Rear View Camera, Panoramic Sunroof
Transmission: Automatic Color:Gray Interior Color: Tan Average Vehicle Review: (4.6 reviews) I bought the Escape a year and half ago and it's ran really well. Drove from central CA to Tuscon, Grand Canyon and then central CA to Vancouver, Canada. I find it to be very comfortable. I can get in and out my car easily. Just enough space for passengers. Back seats will go down for extra trunk space. Driving and turning is like a coupe. Really easy to get use to. Mine has Microsoft sync technology. I can connect an Ipod through USB or stream music through my cell phone on the Bluetooth. Also voice control to select music or control A/C heating. The only con I have on my escape is the estimated gas mileage. It says it's about 33mpg on the highway but I only get 26-27. This is my only reason I didn't give my review 5 stars.

Description: Used 2018 Ford Escape S for sale - $14,998, 33,157 miles with Rear View Camera, Auxiliary Audio Input, Cruise Control, Overhead Airbags, Traction Control, Side Airbags
Transmission: Automatic Color:Black Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (4.6 reviews) 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.

Description: Used 2016 Ford Escape SE for sale - $14,899, 39,590 miles with Turbo Charged Engine, Satellite Radio Ready, Rear View Camera, Auxiliary Audio Input, Cruise Control, Alloy Wheels
Transmission: Automatic Color:White Interior Color: Gray Average Vehicle Review: (4.438 reviews) This is a great truck and I got a good deal at my CarMax. I really wanted a Jeep until I drove one and then I realized that I wanted something that looks like a Jeep but drives better. My Escape does just that! I do a lot of traveling and backpacking in the mountains and this truck handles the forest service roads just fine. Plenty of room in the back for backpacks and other camping equipment, passengers have enough leg room and the gas mileage is something I can brag about. 4x4's are nice but they get terrible gas mileage. My 2 wheel drive Escape gives me all the features I need on a day to day basis in the city plus all the giddy up and go I need on the weekends. It's the best of both worlds!

Vehicle Summary

The Ford Escape is a compact crossover sold by the brand since 2000. What sets the Escape apart from its competition is that it's fun to drive and can tackle everyday life with agility and competence. 

This vehicle is a good fit for small families and professionals who need both cargo and passenger space and checks all the boxes for in-town excursions and longer road trips. It has been a star in the Ford lineup since it launched in 2000 and offers a variety of both standard and optional equipment. The 2017 model received a facelift both inside and out and added available Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ connectivity. 

The most recent generation of Ford Escape (2013–2019) is its third and the fourth will kick off with the 2020 model year. The 2017 and 2018 Ford Escape is available in three trim levels: S, SE, and Titanium. All of the Ford Escape trim levels include a six-speed automatic transmission and the SE and Titanium offer FWD or AWD (standard on the Titanium). 

The Ford Escape S in this recent generation includes a 2.5L four-cylinder engine with 168 horsepower. The 2017–2018 Ford Escape SE and Titanium trim levels offer a choice between two new EcoBoost® turbocharged engines, a 1.5L four-cylinder, and a 2.0L twin-scroll.

Ford Escape Trim Configurations

From 2013 - 2016, the Ford Escape was available with a choice of three engines: a 2.5L four-cylinder, a turbocharged 1.6L four-cylinder, or a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder. In 2017, two new turbocharged Ecoboost engines replaced those previously available, and the 2.5L standard engine carried over. Starting in 2017, a turbocharged 1.5L four-cylinder is standard on SE and Titanium trims with a 2.0L twin-scroll Ecoboost optional on both trims. 

S: Air conditioning, a six-speaker stereo, auxiliary audio jack, remote keyless entry, and steel wheels are all standard. For model years 2013 - 2016, a 2.5L Duratec® inline-four engine and manual seats come standard.

Ford Escape vs Other SUVs

2018 Ford Escape vs 2018 Toyota RAV4:

The Escape offers three engine choices, agile steering and handling, and power, while the advantages of the Toyota RAV4 include a hybrid powertrain option and a variety of standard driver-assist features. If you're looking for size, the RAV4 is three inches longer and four cubic feet larger than the Escape. 

Both vehicles come standard with a 2.5L four-cylinder engine. In addition, the RAV4 also offers a hybrid model. In contrast, the Escape offers two more engine options, including 1.5L and 2.0L EcoBoost models. 

2018 Ford Escape vs 2018 Ford Edge

The Edge offers a sportier drive with V6 engine options and steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters available. The Edge is a bit larger, with a 6.3-inch advantage in the wheelbase and 10 inches of overall length over the Escape; it's also slightly wider and higher. 

The 2018 Ford Escape comes with the choice of three engines: a 2.5L engine rated at 168 hp for the S trim, a turbocharged 1.5L engine and 179 hp on the SE, and a 245-hp, turbocharged engine. The Edge in the same year can be purchased with one of three engines: a 2.0L four-cylinder engine (245 hp), a 3.5L V6, (available on the SEL and Titanium trims), or a turbocharged 2.7L V6 (315 hp) on the Sport trim. 

2018 Ford Escape vs 2018 Honda CRV

The 2018 Ford Escape and the 2018 Honda CR-V offer smart choices and a plethora of options. The Escape delivers a sporty ride, three engine options (including two turbocharged engines) and upscale features like automated park assist and a panoramic moonroof. You might choose a CR-V if a quiet interior, road departure mitigation, and larger rear seat and cargo areas are more important to you. 

The Honda CR-V is 180.6 inches long, 73.0 inches wide and 66.5 inches tall. The Escape is 178.1 inches long (2.5 inches shorter than the CR-V), 72.4 inches wide, and almost exactly the same height at 66.3 inches. 

Drivers may find that the Escape offers more upscale options than the CR-V. At the Titanium level, the Escape has a maximum towing capacity of an estimated 3,500 lbs with the 2.0L EcoBoost and Class II Trailer Tow Package when properly equipped;2 the CR-V can tow an estimated 1,500 pounds with the 2.4L inline-four engine when properly equipped.2

2 Various factors may impact towing capacity, including weight of passengers, cargo, and options/accessories.

2013 Escape runs great on long road trips

I bought the Escape a year and half ago and it's ran really well. Drove from central CA to Tuscon, Grand Canyon and then central CA to Vancouver, Canada. I find it to be very comfortable. I can get in and out my car easily. Just enough space for passengers. Back seats will go down for extra trunk space. Driving and turning is like a coupe. Really easy to get use to. Mine has Microsoft sync technology. I can connect an Ipod through USB or stream music through my cell phone on the Bluetooth. Also voice control to select music or control A/C heating. The only con I have on my escape is the estimated gas mileage. It says it's about 33mpg on the highway but I only get 26-27. This is my only reason I didn't give my review 5 stars.

Pros

  • Ride and Handling: comfortable and easy to drive
  • Technology and Entertainment: Stream music from your phone on Bluetooth
  • Interior Space: just enough space for passengers and trunk

Cons

  • Fuel Economy: supposed to be 33mpg on highway but runs 26-27

- Jessie T, 2013 Ford Escape

It's the best of both worlds!

This is a great truck and I got a good deal at my CarMax. I really wanted a Jeep until I drove one and then I realized that I wanted something that looks like a Jeep but drives better. My Escape does just that! I do a lot of traveling and backpacking in the mountains and this truck handles the forest service roads just fine. Plenty of room in the back for backpacks and other camping equipment, passengers have enough leg room and the gas mileage is something I can brag about. 4x4's are nice but they get terrible gas mileage. My 2 wheel drive Escape gives me all the features I need on a day to day basis in the city plus all the giddy up and go I need on the weekends. It's the best of both worlds!

Pros

  • Interior Space: Plenty of room!
  • Fuel Economy: I'm averaging 25 mpg for city and hwy!
  • Ride and Handling: I have taken her on some pretty bad forest service roads in the mountains; I have yet to get stuck or break anything!

Cons

  • Technology and Entertainment: Some of the tech features are hard to figure out but I don't use a lot of them anyway.

- Kris M, 2012 Ford Escape

Solid Vehicle and Fun To Drive

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.

Pros

  • Ride and Handling: It handles like a car and is fun to drive
  • Cargo Space: For a small SUV and full roof racks there's plenty of space for camping gear and the dog.
  • Styling: It just looks nice!

Cons

  • Cabin Noise: Not overly loud but can hear road noise from the ground (tires).
  • Technology and Entertainment: So much technology, I don't use half of it. I'm not technology challenged but some of the accessories came with the equipment package and I don't need them
  • Weather Versatility: I purchased a 4WD as I go camping a lot and have not yet used it, but nice to know it's there in case it's needed
