Hello again, Seattle! We hope this week finds you well and that you’re amped for the coming Independence Day festivities. If, however, you plan on making a big purchase after the holiday, let us help you by putting a vehicle on your short list—the 2012 Escape Limited. It rocks and rolls with superior engineering and wonderful safety measures.
There’s explosive power to be had here. This SUV is bolstered by the inclusion of a 3.0L V6 engine that creates 240 horses and 223-lb.-ft. of torque. Also, fuel efficiency delights at an EPA-estimated 23 highway / 18 city MPG, and there’s a 1,500-pound towing capacity, as well. This kind of performance puts the car in the upper echelon of similarly classed vehicles for the 2012 model year!
You can’t have speed without safety, however. Ford demonstrates their prowess in this field by introducing a sublime slate of security-based features to the 2012 Escape Limited. These include front, seat-mounted, and side-curtain airbags throughout, complemented by rollover detection to ensure that the inflatables deploy automatically and on time. This along with traction control garnered the machine the highest available scores from the IIHS in the “Head Restraints & Seats,” “Moderate Overlap Front,” and “Side” testing categories.
