The Escape is one of the flagships in the Ford lineup. It’s rated amongst the top 5 compact crossovers and SUVs on the popular car review website Car and Driver – and for very good reason.
So why does the 2014 Escape excite so many people who are looking to buy a used SUV? At Sound Ford, we think the Escape offers true utility in a mid-sized vehicle, bringing exciting performance and exceptional fuel economy.
The Escape comes in three different trim levels that meet the requirements for any type of drivers. Base model Escapes include a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with front-wheel drive that makes 168 horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque. SE versions of the Escape offer a 1.6-liter turbocharged EcoBoost four-cylinder engine with direct injection. It ups the ante for power with 178 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. For those who need a little more power out of their vehicle, the Escape is also offered with a 2.0-liter EcoBoost turbo four-cylinder engine, putting out 240 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque.
On average, these models receive an EPA-estimated 21/28 mpg city/highway. With gas ratings that rival those of a hatchback sedan, it’s easy to see why people are excited about the performance and the fuel economy of a Ford Escape.
Premium sporty styling, SYNC MyFord Touch navigation system and smooth, responsive handling create a unique and enjoyable driving performance.
