The Ford Escape is one of America’s favorite crossovers for good reason. It’s thoughtfully crafted with equal doses of style and substantive inclusions. In the case of the 2015 Titanium model, specifically, the car excels thanks to what’s under the hood and what’s within the cabin.
The engine is marvelous. The Escape Titanium’s 2.0L inline four-cylinder EcoBoost motor cranks out 231 HP and 270-lb.-ft. of torque. All-wheel drive is available to tackle the back roads of Renton, Bellevue, and Seattle, and you’ll even be able to tow up to 2,000 lbs. Also, when you’re not operating under those more extreme conditions, you’ll average an MPG of 28 highway / 21 city.
The other part of this winning equation are all the standard amenities within the cabin. Leather seats? Check. Heated cushions and side mirrors? Oh, absolutely. But there’s also dual-zone air conditioning and park assist, the latter helping to guide you into spots when you might otherwise struggle to position the vehicle. Further, a Wi-Fi hotspot can be utilized to ensure your smart devices are always connected.
