The Big Blue Oval brand produces some stellar cars, with each successive year bringing more and more advanced models onto the market. 2015 was yet another step forward for Ford with their Escape SE, a compact crossover that delivers speed, handling, and stellar safety measures.
This Escape’s traction control system works overtime on your behalf with a very nuanced, intelligent approach to passenger security. A wide range of sensors is leveraged to monitor street conditions in real-time. These sensors take into account your velocity, acceleration, steering angle, and more, and then determine whether skidding/slipping is occurring or on the brink of happening. If necessary, it selectively brakes your tires to combat the issue. All these processes happen in milliseconds!
The 2015 Escape SE may have plenty of safety measures in place but, ultimately, it ensures you can have tons of fun, too. It’s outfitted with a peppy 1.6L four-cylinder motor that produces 173 HP and 184-lb.-ft. of torque. Fuel economy is stellar as well, enabling a wonderfully efficient average MPG of 23 city / 32 highway.
