Hi, Seattle! Welcome back to our Used Ford blog. We want to kick things off this week by detailing the many merits of the 2016 Escape SE. This crossover is a true winner that delivers spirited performance and sensational safety features.
This is a peppy machine that’s nimble and quick. The automatic transmission makes for a smooth ride but the four-cylinder engine is the admirable standout here, producing 168 horses and 170-lb.-ft. of torque in its standard configuration. However, if you’re game, there’s an available 2.0L EcoBoost variant that boosts everything to a stellar 240 horses and 270-lb.-ft. of torque!
The 2016 Escape SE gets it done in the most important way, too—safety. It comes with automatic headlights which eliminate the need to remember to manually flick the lamps on as dusk approaches. Powered side mirrors make adjustments a cinch, helping to reduce blind spots. Also, the windows have a “bounce back” feature that will automatically kick-in if it detects a foreign object, making the car safer than ever for your fur babies.
