Convenience, safety, and performance—that’s the trifecta and that’s exactly what the 2008 Ford Escape XLT provides. You’re getting it all with this one, without spending the big bucks associated with upper trims. Let’s dig into this superlative SUV and detail a few of its many advantages.
As you get situated within the 2008 Escape XLT, you’ll immediately find that the vehicle makes every attempt to cater to your preferences. For example, the driver’s seat comes with six-way power adjustability, allowing you to electronically slide into the optimal position prior to beginning your trip. As you cruise along, you can drop the windows and grab a cool breeze with the ease offered by one-touch-down functionality. Plus, both automatic dusk-sensing headlights and side-curtain airbags are on-hand to provide for your safety.
This machine gets around with sublime quickness, too. The beating heart of it is a 3.0L V6 engine that is a full step beyond the four-cylinder seen on the XLS variant. This tenacious motor comes with 200 HP at 6,000 revolutions per minute (RPM) and 193-lb.-ft. torque at 4,850 RPM. You also get the ease of operation associated with the four-speed automatic transmission. Wonderful!
