If you are in the market for a compact crossover with plenty of advanced features, consider a used 2018 Ford Escape S. This five-seater is perfect for small families with hectic weekly schedules. Since school is out for the summer, you're probably ready for a little vacation. With 34 cubic feet of space behind the backseats, you can load this beauty up and head to the beach with the kids!

With the proper towing package, it can pull up to 2,000 lbs.
The base S trim level includes 17-inch steel wheels and MyKey parental controls to keep children safe.

The Sync tech interface operates with Bluetooth for hands-free calling and AppLink smartphone integration. Using voice commands, you can navigate the web and utilize mobile applications easily. It’s designed to minimize distractions on the road while keeping you connected.
