Ford makes dependable, performance-driven vehicles that consistently push the boundaries of their respective automotive generation. The 2012 Escape XLT is certainly no different. It serves up a wicked engine and sterling safety features that make it profoundly attractive to prospective owners.
Let’s talk motor specifications! This crossover may be small but it packs a mighty punch. There’s nothing here to hold you back from your aspiration to absolutely take the highways and byways of Seattle by storm—the 3.0L V6 motor hits top speeds in a thrilling rush thanks to its 240 horses and 223-lb.-ft. of torque. The six-speed automatic transmission is a cinch to operate, and fuel efficiency is a delight at an average highway MPG of 25. On top of this, the car is E85 compatible, which means it can work with fuel that achieves an octane score of up to 105. This equates to a potential performance boost beyond what you can get with premium gas.
Your passengers will be strapped in safely, too. The 2012 Ford Escape is stocked with front and rear inflatables that deploy automatically in the event of a collision. Additionally, side-curtain airbags are included to mitigate the effect of rollovers.
