The Titanium trim of the 2013 Ford Escape takes the compact crossover to new heights. While you can’t go wrong with any of the models in the line, this variant is particularly potent in the manner in which it caters to the driver and passengers. You’re getting the benefits of both a feisty engine and a luxury cabin!
Let’s pop open the front hood and break down the motor first. This American-made auto comes with Ford’s celebrated EcoBoost technology—specifically, a 2.0L version that pumps out a healthy 231 HP and 270-lb.-ft. of torque. Now, keep in mind the weight class of this car; when you apply that kind of power, you’re going to feel positively zippy as you roll down Seattle’s streets. Fuel economy also hasn’t been overlooked and the EPA suggests you’ll enjoy a 30 MPG highway average.
Even if your friends and family aren’t behind the wheel, the 2013 Escape Titanium has plenty in store for them, as well. If it’s a fair summer’s day, they can pull back the powered, sliding moonroof overhead and feel the wind in their hair. Conversely, on chillier evenings they may keep all the windows up and take advantage of the heated front leather seats and the ease-of-use of the dual-zone climate control. Plus, they’ll be mighty thankful that the included GPS navigation system keeps you on your way as you drive, ensuring there’s no time wasted taking wrong turns.
