The compact crossover experience has never been better as of the last several years, and the preeminent reason for this excellence has been Ford’s Escape. The 2013 Titanium model is a sterling example of fine engineering joined by a bounty of luxurious cabin conveniences.
As you enter the vehicle, you’ll find that the seats are clad in supple leather. Front cushions are electronically warmed to thwart the chill of the winter months. Conversely, when springtime arrives, a gorgeous glass panoramic sunroof overhead lets in light and a pleasant breeze. Aside from these conveniences, you’ll also find that the Escape Titanium is stocked with a built-in navigation system that takes the uncertainty out of making a trip outside of the Seattle area. And a 110-volt power outlet keeps all your devices juiced up and ready to go.
There’s fantastic engineering that makes the 2013 Escape Titanium a capable road warrior, too. The included 2.0L four-cylinder EcoBoost pumps out 231 horses and 270-lb.-ft. of torque. This is power that isn’t costly. Ford’s machine scoots around Seattle, Bellevue, and Renton while enjoying a 30 MPG highway rating.
