There’s a fantastic chance you’re going to be intrigued by a recent arrival on our Sound Ford lot—this sleek, compact 2016 Escape SE with only 16,690 miles logged on its odometer. The performance and luxury attributes of this sport utility vehicle have Edmunds calling it one of their favorites.
So, what’s all the hubbub about? Checking under the hood, you’re going to find a sprightly 2.0L four-cylinder engine that cranks out a substantial 240 horses at 5,500 revolutions per minute (RPM) and 270 lb.-ft. torque at 3,000 RPM. This enables the crossover to hit 60 MPH in as little as 7.2 seconds. Also, when mated to the six-speed automatic transmission, fuel economy is plentiful at an EPA-estimated 30 MPG highway / 22 city.
Moving beyond the motor, drivers will instantly appreciate the functionality of the eight-way power front seat. One-touch windows with privacy/tinted glass add some distinction, as well, and electronically adjustable side mirrors help to mitigate blind spots. Further, this Ford Escape is incredibly aware of its surroundings. Dusk-sensing headlights, a digital compass, and an external temperature display are all included.
