For families looking for an affordable vehicle with plenty of room and a high fuel economy, nothing beats the 2013 Ford Escape SE. This compact crossover offers sporty driving dynamics and a welcoming cabin without the high price tag. It’s ideal for people who enjoy traveling as well.
Powered by a turbocharged 1.6-liter inline-4 engine, the Escape generates 178 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. Equipped with front-wheel-drive and a six-speed automatic transmission, it gets an impressive 25 mpg combined (22 city/31 highway). With the proper towing package, it can pull up to 3,500 pounds with ease.
The SE trim level includes 17-inch alloy wheels and keyless entry for quick access. According to Edmunds, the Sync infotainment interface operates on a 4-in multifunction display with satellite radio. Other audio controls are mounted on the steering wheel, and you can hook up your mobile device with the auxiliary jack to listen to music. Folding down the rear seats opens up the cargo capacity to 68.1 cubic feet. That’s ample space for luggage or camping gear.
