The 2010 Ford Escape XLS is a true all-around performer. Among its many virtues is its supreme devotion to delivering fantastic convenience features and sensational safety systems.
Hopping behind the wheel of this five-speed manual transmission vehicle, owners will be pleased to notice that mirrors, locks, and windows are all powered—a boon considering this is the lowest trim in the range. Despite not carrying the price tag of its more expensive Escape brothers, the XLT also delivers items such as a rear defroster and AM/FM stereo with CD player. Plus, there’s an included auxiliary jack so that passengers may charge their phones and various electronics.
There’s also plenty of security in place for the well-being of all your friends and loved ones as you cruise through Seattle. Both front- and side-impact airbags are featured for those in the fore of the cabin, while head inflatables are installed for all outboard seats. These safety curtains are even designed to move between the occupants and windows in case individuals are resting their heads against the glass at the time of a collision.
