The 2013 Escape receives heavy praise for being a “radical break from the past.” While a significant factor for this acclaim is the far more aggressive “kinetic design” Ford introduced on the exterior, performance and luxury variables on the Titanium trim are equally impactful.
This upper model of the Big Blue Oval brand’s celebrated compact crossover enthralls due to a 2.0L I-4 EcoBoost engine. This motor touts 231-hp at 5,500 revolutions per minute and 270-lb-ft of torque at 3,000 rpm—a welcome upgrade over the S, SE, and SEL variants. Even better, this powertrain makes darting up and down the roads of Seattle an economical exercise through its generous 30 miles per gallon (MPG) rating. Such efficiency proves a dazzling driver experience can be enjoyed while still avoiding the dreaded “pinch at the pumps.”
The Ford Escape Titanium also delivers lavish options. Consumers have their choice of incorporating full leather upholstery, a robust navigation system, and/or the wide-open sensation granted by a panoramic sunroof. Additionally, the available technology package serves up reverse park assist, HID headlights with automatic illumination at night, a 110V power outlet, and more.
