Crossovers are always in high demand with Bismarck drivers due to how flexible they are. Keeping that in mind, Ford's 2018 Escape is precisely what numerous drivers are searching for in their next car buy. Convenient and powerful, all without losing its utility, the new Escape is truly an outstanding member of its class, all things considered.
The ability to haul a ton of cargo is one of the principle reasons many individuals in Bismarck make the choice to buy crossovers. With its most recent Escape offering, Ford has made a crossover that is sure to win on this front. Freight volume with both back seats collapsed down is 68 cubic feet. On the other hand, keeping both back seats upright still gives you access to 34 cubic feet of storage space.
The back seat has a 60-40 split, which ensures that you still have a ton of room to load up the Escape and still carry up to three other passengers. Should you feel that you will require significantly more space to carry bulky or cumbersome items, the SE and Titanium models come with an available rooftop rack that is perfect for extra storage needs.
Just because the Escape is a crossover, that does not mean that it is not up to the challenge of a hard day's work. In the event that you pick either the 1.5 liter (L) EcoBoost Class II Trailer Tow Prep or the 2.0 L Class II Trailer Tow trim packages, you will have the tools needed to pull up to 3,500 pounds (lb). These tow bundles incorporate innovation that helps minimize trailer sway via lowering the motor's torque or by apply additional brake power. Your Escape is ready to work in rough terrain circumstances as well – the available Intelligent 4-wheel Drive (4WD) package checks street conditions and footing and – if necessary – moves torque from the front wheels to the back to keep you steady, stable, and moving forward.
Safety is a major piece of the puzzle for the 2018 Escape. From AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control, which keeps an eye out for wheel slippage and changes motor torque, to a plethora of airbags (including a driver's knee airbag and side-curtain airbags) it is safe to say that the Escape is prepared to keep you safe. Additionally, The Forward Collision Warning with Brake Support system has the ability to give you a warning should a collision with a vehicle in front of you appear to be imminent. On the off chance that you neglect to respond in time, the brakes will kick in with increased responsiveness to help your Escape decelerate.
When it comes to power and performance, the new Escape has plenty to offer. With three motors options to look over, you can tailor your Escape to suit your specific needs and inclinations. The 2.5 L I-4 motor produces 168 horsepower (hp) and 170 pound-feet (lb-ft) of torque. The 1.5 L EcoBoost I-4 puts out 179 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque. In the event that you are searching for something somewhat beefier, the 2.0 L EcoBoost I-4 gives you 245 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque. The 2.0 L EcoBoost motor also provides access to Auto Start-Stop functionality, which gives the driver quicker access to torque as needed.
On the customization front, the 2018 Escape has an extensive assortment of choices, including 10 distinctive outside color combinations and two interior color scheme selections. In the event that you want your Escape to look somewhat more energetic and sporty, you can select the SE Sport Appearance Package and enjoy all that its bold style has to offer.
