The Ford Escape is nimble, dependable, and stuffed full of comfort and convenience. If you think you have to make a sacrifice or a compromise just because this is a compact crossover, you're wrong! This is a machine that more than earns all the praise consumers and critics have placed upon it.
Opening the hood and taking a peek, you’ll find that this SUV doesn’t mess around. It’s got the kind of “grunt” you’re looking for in a utility vehicle, delivering enough speed and acceleration to make you the envy of many of the other motorists that take Seattle’s roads. There’s a 3.0L V6 engine at work here that produces 240 HP and 223-lb.-ft. of torque. In practice, that means you’ll be rolling from 0 to 60 MPH in just eight seconds flat!
The 2011 Ford Escape Limited also has a few stellar conveniences beyond what’s available on the lower trims, elevating its stature further. Heated seats are joined by electronically warmed side mirrors that shed the glass of any pesky ice, snow, and sludge that would otherwise impair your view of the surroundings. Also, satellite radio rids you of your reliance on terrestrial stations, opening up a whole new world of music.
