For the Paw Paw, MI Enthusiast, the New Ford Escape Comes Ready for Adventure

A compact SUV with a mettle-tested, time-honored, and versatile character, the latest Ford Escape is nothing short of a pleasure to drive. Striking style comes together with sporty driving manners in a complete package showcasing the cutting-edge tech, safety elements, and driver-assist features for which our automaker has come to be known. What's more, with numerous engine choices, creature comforts and options galore, and an excellent towing capacity near the top of its segment, the new Escape stands ready for trekking wherever the open road or unbeaten path may take you.

Raring to set a course? Let our Paw Paw, MI Ford dealer be your trusty fellow orienteer for navigating just a few of the exciting things you can expect to find under the hood and in-cabin.

Standard Features

Step into the driver's seat, and you'll become aware just how spacious the new Ford Escape is, with a sizable 34 cubic feet of cargo space burgeoning up to 68 cubic feet with 60/40 split-folding rear seating collapsed. Start up and light out for Kalamazoo atop a nimble four-wheel independent suspension, and you'll find the drive an agile one thanks to the enhanced aerodynamics afforded by Active Grille Shutters and the cornering precision of standard Torque Vectoring Control. Plus, Intelligent 4WD is available, should you prefer turning and pulling power with a firm grip over diverse Allegan terrain and through inclement Otsego weather. Count on AdvanceTrac® with RSC® (Roll Stability Control) and Curve Control to keep the ride on an even keel over the landscape.

You also have the option to equip an available Safe and Smart Package offering the height of driver-assist technologies for the trip. It includes a Lane-Keeping System for help in course maintenance and correction, Adaptive Cruise Control for safe distancing, Forward Collision Warning with Brake Support to help stave off an accident, and more. Should the worst happen out there in the wild blue yonder, the new Escape builds in the redundant layers of protection of both an advanced airbag-equipped Personal Safety System and a Safety Canopy® System. Plus, an SOS Post-Crash Alert System can help notify emergency services when you need them most. Rolling up to that space-strapped venue, available Enhanced Active Park Assist and a standard rear-view camera deliver enhanced situational awareness, making parking and reverse maneuvers a breeze.

But a stellar roster of standards isn't all to which you have to look forward. Explore a lineup of trim levels from economical to luxurious, and you'll see what we mean.


Trim Levels

Escape S

Slip into comfortable cloth bucket seating, and your new Escape S journey begins. A 168-horsepower, 2.5-liter i-VCT inline-four putting out an energetic 170 pound-feet of torque offers the prospect of a spirited drive, gear shifts kept smooth by a standard six-speed SelectShift® automatic transmission. A respectable EPA-estimated fuel economy of up to 21 mpg city, 29 mpg highway, and 24 mpg combined in front-wheel drive makes going the distance a matter of course. Enjoy your road-trip soundtrack along the way via a six-speaker SYNC infotainment system with the control convenience of enhanced voice recognition.

Escape SE

You'll find much of Escape S in the new Escape SE, plus plenty of advances. A SecuriCode Keyless-Entry Keypad makes ingress a breeze, and as you slide into available partial-leather-trimmed sport seating and set Dual-Zone Electronic Automatic Temperature Control for your preferred comfort level, you'll feel the drive come to life in a 179-horsepower, 1.5-liter EcoBoost® inline-four engine. It's capable of 177 pound-feet of torque for the get-up-and-go, and Auto Start-Stop Technology helps ensure enhanced fuel efficiency. To wit, count on up to 23 city mpg, 30 highway mpg, and 26 combined mpg, or up to 22 mpg, 28 mpg, and 24 mpg respectively with available four-wheel drive.

Along the way, available driver-assist features like Adaptive Cruise Control and Collision Warning with Brake Support help you steer clear of accidents, with help cutting through the thick of dim conditions from standard fog lights and during parking from a standard Forward Sensing system. SYNC 3 infotainment with SYNC® Connect, SiriusXM support, and Wi-Fi Hotspot capability comes optional, making it easy to remain connected on the go. Plus, with help from an available voice-activated touchscreen SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link navigation system with pinch-to-zoom, reaching your destination's a breeze. Just load up atop standard roof rails with optional crossbars, or activate the optional Panoramic Vista Roof® to admit a touch of Mother Nature, and hit the road. You can even take up to 2,000 pounds with you in tow with proper equipment of an available Class II Trailer Tow Package.

Escape SEL

Escape SE takes a turn toward premium to become the new Escape SEL, and it's complete with leather-trimmed front seating, power adjustable in ten ways for driver, as well as standard SYNC 3 infotainment with SYNC® Connect to keep things entertaining on the trip. Four powerpoints positioned conveniently throughout the cabin make it a snap to keep your devices charged. Plus, standard heated side-view mirrors provide added visibility on chillier days, alongside help from stylish LED signature lighting. Escape SEL even adds a Reverse Sensing system to help you remain aware of impediments behind you. When it's time to unload, a power liftgate makes the magic happen near-effortlessly.

Escape Titanium

Top of the line and fully loaded, the new Escape Titanium incorporates plenty from previous trim levels, adding numerous luxuries you've come to expect from a new Ford SUV at the top of the off-grid travel game. A Remote Start System helps warm up the cabin before you leave, while Intelligent Access with Push-Button Start enables a quick hop-in and head-out on more agreeable days. Seating's now power adjustable in ten ways for both driver and passenger, keeping the trip comfortable as you charge across terrain with the power of a 245-horsepower, 2.0-liter EcoBoost inline-four engine shelling 275 pound-feet of torque. Fuel economy remains laudable, too, at approximately 21 mpg city, 28 mpg highway, and 24 combined mpg, following up in available four-wheel drive with up to 20 mpg, 27 mpg, and 23 mpg respectively. The SUV's audio system sees an upgrade to a 10-speaker variant from Sony, and should you opt for an available Class II Trailer Tow Package, you can count on an augmented maximum tow rating of up to 3,500 pounds. To round out the convenience aspect, the standard power liftgate's now foot-activated, too, making access to your haul hands-free.
