Stylish, spirited, and roomy to boot, the 2013 Escape SE is one of Ford’s finest. The compact crossover offers a ton to any consumer searching for a new ride that can comfortably occupy their garage for years to come. Critics absolutely agree on its merits, too.
You’re not going to suffer from lack of room with this auto. This Escape provides generous dimensions to accommodate you and any passengers you may bring along on your adventures. Compared to the previous generation model, the crossover has a width that’s 1.3” greater and, importantly, about 3” longer on the wheelbase. This aids with the all-important legroom specification—those sitting in the rear can stretch out thanks to 36.8” of space.
This 2013 Escape is one peppy ride, too. It’s a well-engineered marvel that we genuinely feel will win you over with its 1.6L inline four-cylinder engine, which produces 173 HP and 184-lb.-ft. torque. The lower S trim’s 2.5L motor makes 168 HP and 170-lb.-ft. of torque, so the SE trim is markedly more advanced in this respect. Additionally, the average highway MPG here sits at 30, meaning your wallet will be deeply appreciative.
