2016 Ford EscapeFred Neuman - Rutherfordton, NC01/16/2017
The car rides very well and it is great on gas. We purchased the 4 cylinder with the Eco Boost Engine. We recently took a long trip and averaged over 28 miles to the gallon. The interior is roomy and it has great driver side leg room which is important to someone who is 6'5' tall with long legs. After doing research, we found this model Escape has more front passenger leg room then the same year model Ford Edge which is slightly larger than the Ford Escape. The leg room is comparable to the much larger Ford Explorer. We are extremely happy with our purchase.
Good SUV, Could Be Great
2014 Ford EscapeMark Bush - Santa Ana, CA08/08/2016
Reliability, decent mileage, lots of technology, nice leather seats (easy to clean), love the seat and mirror position memory (my wife has her settings and I have mine), Bluetooth connectivity is automatic and very clear, rear view camera has very wide angle lens to see everything behind you, Sport mode holds gears longer and shifts more quickly, etc., etc., etc. Only "negative" is that the 1.6L Ecoboost engine is a little under-powered for a vehicle of this weight but it does OK.
Not comfortable for passengers
2012 Ford EscapeHannah Miller - Jacksonville, FL01/03/2017
You cannot role down the windows without hearing all around pressure inside and outside the vehicle. It's hard to explain it unless you've driven or been inside the vehicle plenty of times. This is the only car that I get car sick in either in the passenger seat or the back seats, and it's not just me who has felt this way. I don't know why, but I won't even be doing anything like reading to make me sick, it's just being in the car for a long time. say a half an hour to feel this way. Another con for me (even though it's a safety precaution, which I understand) is that you can only connect your phone through bluetooth when you're at a complete stop or parked, the passenger cannot do it for you while you're driving.
The Ford F-150, the top-searched vehicle on carmax.com in 2017, has a heck-raising version called the SVT Raptor. Love it or not, the Ford Raptor is impossible to ignore. It rules the road (and dirt, mud, sand, etc.)!
