This base trim level would make a good vehicle for those buyers on a budget. The SUV comes with the standard 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine with 170 lb-ft of torque and 168 horsepower. You’ll also get front-wheel drive and a 6-speed automatic transmission. Other features include cloth-covered seats, a 6-way manually adjustable driver’s seat, a rearview camera, 6-speaker audio system, USB port, and a voice-activated SYNC® infotainment system with a 4.2-inch display screen.
The Ford Escape SE trim carries most of the standard features of the base trim and adds or upgrades certain items. For example, you’ll get an upgraded SYNC® 3 system with an 8-inch touchscreen and Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ integration. The SE gets an improved engine with the 1.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder with 179 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque. All-wheel drive is offered as an option at this trim and higher.
Other highlights include a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, remote start, and satellite radio. The Sport Appearance package is available and offers partial-leather-trimmed seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and black 19-inch wheels. You can also purchase the Safe and Smart package at this level and higher, which has Automatic Emergency Braking, Blind-Spot Monitoring, Automatic Windshield Wipers, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Lane Departure Warning, and other significant safety features.
The SEL keeps the same engine and most items from the SE trim, along with a few more additions. The leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob that were part of the Sport package are standard here. You can also buy a Sun and Style package at this trim, which gives you a panoramic sunroof and 18-inch aluminum wheels.
The heated front seats and side mirrors will help you stay comfortable when you drive on a cold winter day. You’ll also find rear parking sensors, and a power liftgate available with the SEL.
If you want your Ford Escape to have all the perks and more power, consider the Escape Titanium trim. The high-end trim gets a strong 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that produces 275 lb-ft of torque and 245 horsepower. If you want to tow, go with this level, as it has a trailer tow package with sway control. Other items include a navigation system, 10-way power adjustable front seats, HD radio, and a 10-speaker premium audio system.
The Titanium also adds an auto-dimming rearview mirror and ambient interior lighting to the Ford driver’s aids. The automated parallel and perpendicular parking feature should help you park in narrow spots.
