Fresh inventory alert! We now have a new 2016 Escape SE occupying our expansive lot here at Sound Ford in Seattle. This compact crossover wows with stellar performance and superlative safety. Let’s jump right in and discuss all the highlights.
You don’t necessarily expect a four-cylinder to deliver beefy power, but don’t make any presumptions regarding this 2.0L engine. It produces 240 horses and 270-lb.-ft. of torque on behalf of this 2016 Escape SE. This means you’ll be able to move from zero all the way to sixty in only 7.2 seconds. As you operate the smooth six-speed automatic transmission, you’re also going to receive a splendid EPA-estimated average MPG of 30 highway / 22 city.
There are some swell safety features included on this trim of the Escape, too. The side mirrors on the vehicle are powered. This means you don’t need to stop the car and manually move them. Instead, you can automatically reposition them quickly from your eight-way adjustable seat as you drive around Seattle. Additionally, dusk-sensing headlamps come standard, and a digital compass allows you to keep your bearings at all times.
