Trims & Features

The 2018 Ford Escape has a mission to take care of its passengers. These SUVS come in the affordable S trim, the value-rich SE trim, the handsome SEL trim, and the premium Titanium trim. Its high-tech cockpit has a push button parking brake and a smartphone nook. Ford has updated the steering wheel and improved the overall quality of the cabin's design elements. Soft touches make passengers feel at home. A Panoramic Vista Roof, available on the SE and higher editions, invites the sky into the cabin. Drivers find life more comfortable with a ten-way power chair. Ford's keyless entry pad is also a driver favorite. In the SEL edition, the cabin dresses up in leather upholstery. Sync 3 dash tech helps you connect with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Ford Pass and Sync Connect give you the option of a WiFi hotspot. Your passengers can surf on their smart devices. For vacations, you'll be glad you have a 34-cu.ft. cargo hold. Dressed in fine leather upholstery, Titanium models project an upscale attitude, even at night when an Ice Blue Cluster Instrument Panel is joined by ambient cabin lighting. Cabin amenities include a heated steering wheel and a ten-way power chair for the front passenger. Regardless of your trim choice, you'll find a comfortable backseat that is as welcoming to adults as it is to kids and carseats.

Horsepower

The first choice, a 1.5L Ecoboost four-cylinder engine, cranks out 179 horsepower and 177 lb.-ft. of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive are standard. An all-wheel drivetrain gives you Ford's four-by-four capability without sacrificing on-road ride quality. The Titanium edition has another Ecoboost engine. This four-cylinder turbo spits out 245 horsepower and 278 lb.-ft. of torque. If you are a driving enthusiast, you'll feel right at home behind the wheel. With either EcoBoost engine, drivers get Auto Start-Stop, a system designed to eliminate fuel waste at redlights.

Safety

Automatic braking is available with Ford's Adaptive Cruise Control. Even without any extras, the Escape has earned all five stars from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Parking is under control with the technology offered on the 2018 Ford Escape. Every model has a rearview camera. You can get a rear cross-traffic alert to watch for cars. An automatic parking feature makes tight maneuvering much easier and helps with both perpendicular and parallel spaces.
