Expert Reviews

Edmunds.com says “the 2016 Ford Escape is one of our favorite small crossover utility vehicles, thanks to athletic driving dynamics, an inviting interior and advanced technology features.” The 2016 Escape truly is athletic with three engines to choose from including a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine as standard, an optional 1.6L EcoBoost engine, or an optional 2.0L EcoBoost 4-cylinder engine which outputs up to 240 hp and has a fuel injection system. The interior also features leather-like surfaces that are soft to the touch, and tech can be utilized from the SYNC3 system for hands-free control.

The Car Connection rated the quality of the Escape’s interior as an 8.0, which is a high rating. “It has a small footprint compared to its rivals, but the Ford Escape puts its space to good use.” The Escape interior features an optional skylight roof for a great view in the front or back seat. When you need to haul cargo, use the total 67.8 cubic feet behind the first row. There is also enough seating for a total of five passengers, leaving 34.3 cubic feet of space behind the second row.

KBB states, “If you want your compact SUV to offer high style, good handling, solid fuel economy and a compelling blend of features, the 2016 Ford Escape could be just the ticket.” Adding the chrome package to your Escape heightens its style to chrome exterior accents, leather sport seats, and 19-inch chrome wheels. With available Intelligent Four-Wheel Drive, the system keeps an eye on agility specs every 16 milliseconds to make it easy to handle in different conditions. The fuel economy also makes the Escape a great option with 32 mpg on the highway from the 1.6L EcoBoost engine.
