Description: Used 2013 Ford Escape SEL for sale - $17,998, 88,289 miles with 4WD/AWD, Turbo Charged Engine, Leather Seats, Satellite Radio Ready, Parking Sensors, Rear View Camera
Transmission: Automatic Color:Gray Interior Color: Tan Average Vehicle Review: (4.248062015503876 reviews) It's a nice reliable vehicle (2nd one I've owned) and looks great but there are several issues: 1. The AC is weak. Has been weak in both cars. 2. The transmission HATES going into reverse. This was the same in both cars. 3. Not a lot of power -- the engine just doesn't have it 4. Cabin noise -- both vehicles have had more cabin noise than I'd like. The windshield "whistles" going down the road 5. Cargo space -- it needs more 6. Seats are stiff and become uncomfortable on long trips 7. The back up camera is miniscule

Description: Used 2017 Ford Escape SE for sale - $21,998, 16,994 miles with Turbo Charged Engine, Satellite Radio Ready, Rear View Camera, Auxiliary Audio Input, Cruise Control, Alloy Wheels
Transmission: Automatic Color:Gray Interior Color: Gray Average Vehicle Review: (4.375 reviews) It's easy to drive but has pick up when needed. It's very roomy in the cabin and the leather interior is sweet. Air conditioning kicks on strong. It's easy to park, and the rear view camera isn't in the way. Gas mileage is average and it doesn't cost a fortune to fill the tank. The speakers aren't that great and I can see how the head rest on the middle back seat may block your vision. I'm about to take it on a long road trip so we'll see how it goes. All in all I haven't found a reason to not buy this vehicle. I have zero regrets.

Transmission: Automatic Color:White Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (4.470588235294118 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.

About The Ford Escape

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. 

Unless otherwise noted, information related to these featured vehicles comes from third-party sources, including manufacturer information.

Ford Escape Trim Configurations

For model years 2013 - 2019, the Ford Escape is available in three trims: S, SE, and Titanium. 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. 

SE: Auto Start-Stop, torque vectoring control, AdvanceTrac® with roll stability control, the SYNC® 3 infotainment system, paddle shifters, and a foot-activated liftgate (2017 - 2018). For model years 2013 - 2014, a 1.6L EcoBoost® inline-four engine (including active grille shutters) is standard. 

SEL: (2018 - 2019): leather seats, a power liftgate, heated side mirrors, LED lighting, SYNC 3 with an eight-inch display, and a reverse sensing system. 

Titanium: Leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, windshield wiper de-icer, halogen projector-beam with LED signature bi-xenon lamps, roof rack, paddle shifters, and SecuriCode™ invisible keypad. The 2018 - 2019 model includes a 2.0 EcoBoost engine, a standard navigation system, enhanced parking assistance, and high-intensity (HID) headlamps. 

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.

Reviews for Ford Escape

Overall Rating

4.3 out of 5 (551 reviews)

Decent vehicle but wish I'd bought a truck

It's a nice reliable vehicle (2nd one I've owned) and looks great but there are several issues: 1. The AC is weak. Has been weak in both cars. 2. The transmission HATES going into reverse. This was the same in both cars. 3. Not a lot of power -- the engine just doesn't have it 4. Cabin noise -- both vehicles have had more cabin noise than I'd like. The windshield "whistles" going down the road 5. Cargo space -- it needs more 6. Seats are stiff and become uncomfortable on long trips 7. The back up camera is miniscule

Pros

  • Fuel Economy: I average 28mpg
  • Styling: I think it looks good
  • Value: Decent vehicle for the money

Cons

  • Cabin Noise: Loud, the windows whistle, and the overall road noise is up there.
  • Reliability: Second Ford Escape I've owned and the battery life is terrible. Plus changing that battery is IMPOSSIBLE for anyone but a Ford mechanic.
  • Power: Not all that powerful engine-wise. The AC is weak ... very weak ... and this is the second one I've owned so it's not an individual vehicle issue, it's a systems issue. Plus it does not like to go into reverse sometimes. The gears SLAM even when I gently put it into reverse.

- Ron Haynes, 2016 Ford Escape

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

Good choice for me

It's easy to drive but has pick up when needed. It's very roomy in the cabin and the leather interior is sweet. Air conditioning kicks on strong. It's easy to park, and the rear view camera isn't in the way. Gas mileage is average and it doesn't cost a fortune to fill the tank. The speakers aren't that great and I can see how the head rest on the middle back seat may block your vision. I'm about to take it on a long road trip so we'll see how it goes. All in all I haven't found a reason to not buy this vehicle. I have zero regrets.

Pros

  • Interior Space: Roomy and comfortable
  • Power: 6 cylinders when you need it.
  • Cargo Space: Perfect amount of space with back window and hatch access. Leaves the cabin area clutter free.

Cons

  • Technology and Entertainment: The stereo is ok but the speakers suck.
  • Visibility: Headrests on back seats may block visibility.
  • Ride and Handling: It's not as solid as my Tundra but it's decent.
