Reviews for Ford Escape
Fun to Drive!
I downsized from a very large SUV to this Escape XLT. I am still getting used to it, but I enjoy driving it a lot. I got the V6 so there is plenty of power for merging onto the highway, I like that it has a more square SUV look rather than the car look of some of the crossovers. It's very roomy inside, so I can still fill up the cargo area with groceries or coolers for traveling. I do find the seats a bit harder than the larger SUV I had and there is a bit more noise in the cabin area from the engine, but those would by my only complaints so far. I love the sync function for hands-free talking on the phone. The power adjustable seats and blind spot mirrors make it a breeze to drive comfortably.
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.
Good SUV, Could Be Great
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.
