The Ford Escape Delivers SUV Capabilities Without Sacrificing Compact Handling

When shopping for a compact SUV what features do you look for? Affordability? 4WD? Handling? Power? The Ford Escape has become one of the most popular SUVs as It combines the power and 4WD capabilities of a full-size SUV while retaining the handling and comfort of a compact SUV. It delivers full-size attributes in a compact size and price tag that begins at $24,105.

The Escape has a three-engine lineup, each designed to suit a different driving style. The first engine is 168-hp 2.5l Inline-4 with intake variable cam timing for mild power. Next up is the 1.5L EcoBoost which is designed for those who want a balance of power and fuel efficiency. For those who want the ultimate driving experience, the final option is the athletic 245-horsepower 2.0L EcoBoost with Twin-Scroll technology that provides instant torque and is capable of towing up to 3,500 lbs.

The Ford Escape utilizes the Intelligent 4WD System that persistently monitors traction and road conditions. This makes driving in snow, rain and light off-roading a pleasure as the system transfers torque between the front and rear wheels to ensure the Escape has traction at all times.

An old proverb states “Big things come in small packages” and the Ford Escape is the perfect example. If you are in Kansas City visit Midway Ford Truck Center to get behind the wheel of this hefty compact SUV.
