When looking at used SUVs, you’ve probably got a few features and functions in mind that the vehicle must have before you take a test drive. Some drivers want a high-powered engine that maximizes speed and performance, other drivers want an array of cutting-edge technology that can ease the driving experience and keep them comfortable on long journeys.
No matter what school of thought you relate to, there’s one aspect of a vehicle that every driver must consider — safety.
#1 Standard Safety - Safety equipment commonly found in other vehicles is just the tip of the iceberg. The Escape includes six airbags, including a side curtain airbag; blind-spot mirrors and a blind spot information system with cross-traffic alert is optional
#2 High Crash Test Scores - Both the 4x2 and 4x4 versions of the Escape received four stars in front and rollover crash tests and an impressive five stars in the side crash test. The best possible result is 5 stars, so the Escape did very well in these categories
#3 Technology Features - Designers at Ford have included numerous technology features as safety components of the vehicle. A rearview camera is standard on all 2014 Escape models, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity is standard, and Ford’s MyKey allows parents to set volume and speed controls for teenagers who may borrow the Escape.
