Ford’s 2013 Escape Titanium is really something else. On the one hand, you’re getting a nimble, compact crossover that is agile on the road and full of vim and vigor when you press the pedal down. On the other, you receive a surprisingly robust set of high-technology features that really cater to what consumers desire.
Let’s start with perhaps the most unexpected aspect of this winning equation—those tech-based refinements. Although the Edge and Explorer may be the “big brothers” in this sibling rivalry, the 2013 Escape Titanium matches up exceptionally well. Everything is on the table here. For example, there’s a navigation system to ensure you don’t lose your way when cruising outside Seattle. Park assist guides you into your spot once you reach your destination. Got a smart device to charge? There’s a 110-volt power outlet to help with that. And the panoramic sunroof is both gorgeous and functional.
The engine on this model really impresses, too. It’s a 2.0L four-cylinder EcoBoost that is seriously spirited. You’re going to enjoy 231 horses and 270-lb.-ft. of torque. And, since it’s so easy for you to get around town, it’s fantastic that the mileage is so good—up to 30 MPG on the highway.
