This compact SUV won't cause sticker shock at the gas pump. So, go ahead and plan that weekend road trip or sign up for the kids' soccer carpool crew.

Looking for an SUV with modern upgrades? In 2013, Ford gave the Escape some major updates, including three new trim packages (S, SE, SEL, and Titanium). This means S base-trim buyers will enjoy heated front seats and a six-speaker sound system. Business travelers may want to bump up to the SE trim to gain a turbocharged engine, satellite radio, and an infotainment system complete with a 4.2-inch display (with the option to upgrade to an eight-inch screen). Have a new driver in the household? The top two trims offer park assist, blind spot monitoring, and a rearview camera.
Whether you've adopted a puppy, or are expecting a baby, the 2013 Ford Escape is ready for your family. In the backseat, you'll find two sets of LATCH car-seat connectors on the outboard seats. There's also an upper tether for the middle seat. If you have canine passengers, you can fold the rear seats down to offer up to 67.8 cu-ft for crates or dog beds. Or, you can fill that space with blankets and pillows for a tailgate party (while parked, of course) with the kiddos before the big game.
If you're a weekend camper, horse show fan, or snowmobile rider, the 2013 Ford Escape is ready to haul your toys with the optional tow hitch. This compact SUV (with 2L, FWD option) has an estimated towing capacity of 3500 lbs when properly equipped.
If you need an SUV that can traverse everything from rural gravel roads to snowy side streets, the 2013 Ford Escape is one to look at more closely. Traction control comes standard. You can also choose between FWD and AWD options, but note the S trim only offers FWD.
