5 reasons to buy the 2015 Ford Escape

1. Helpful navigation features

Driving's fun — and should be made easier whenever possible! The 2015 Ford Escape does just that with a suite of standard assists including a rearview camera to help navigate parallel parking spots in the city and parking sensors to give new teen drivers confidence when parking in compact spaces, like the garage or a carport. Optional features to keep an eye out for include a blind spot monitor, automated parking, and a GPS-powered navigation system to help out on road trips.

2. Smart fuel economy

Whether you log lots of miles for business or when traveling to kid's sports events, there's no need to worry about fueling up the 2015 Ford Escape. There are five engine/drivetrain configurations for this SUV that yield EPA-estimated fuel economy between 23 to 26 mpg combined city/highway, depending on which you choose.

That's a decent offering for a compact SUV powered by a four-cylinder engine (1.6L, 2.0L, and 2.0 L options) and automatic transmission.

3. Space for family and pets

In addition to seating two adults up front (driver and passenger), you can either fit three people in the back, or make use of the two children's LATCH car-seat connectors in the outer seats, and enjoy 34.3 cu-ft of rear cargo room. Or, you can fold the back seats down to increase the rear cargo space to 68.1 cu-ft. That's enough space for an air mattress if you enjoy car camping, or room to haul a large dog kennel.

4. Cabin luxury

Ford didn't skimp on cozy comforts for the driver and passengers in this ride. The 2015 Ford Escape comes standard with heated front seats, power locks, a Sony sound system, and power windows for those who love a well-equipped interior. If you opt for the upgraded Titanium trim package, you'll also enjoy leather seats, a panoramic moonroof, and a hands-free rear liftgate that opens by passing your foot under the sensor on the rear bumper. How handy is that when your hands are full of shopping bags or golf clubs?

5. Ready for tricky roads

Available in AWD or front-wheel drive, the 2015 Ford Escape can take on all the road conditions you need to manage. If you traverse rural gravel roads often or live in a climate with snow and ice, the Escape's traction control system will help to reduce sliding and wheel spin on slippery or loose surfaces. The 2015 Ford Escape also features stability control to help keep the vehicle centered on the curviest of mountain passes.
