The 2019 Ford Escape is a rare breed of compact crossover that deftly blends performance and utility. Sporty handling and a powerful turbocharged engine make the Escape drive more like a sedan, without sacrificing SUV versatility, making it a best-of-both-worlds choice.
The “EcoBoost” moniker describes the reason so many automakers are switching to tiny turbocharged engines, even in larger vehicles: they provide the inherent fuel saving that you get with a small engine, but when you want power, the turbocharger kicks in to provide it. The 2.0L certainly gives you plenty of that – it scoots when you ask it.
The Escape’s an excellent driver, with steering that’s light enough for easy parking-lot manoeuvres but with enough heft at higher speeds. Visibility is very good – thanks to its large windshield – and a fairly tight turning circle helps in tight spots. The Titanium trim includes a self-parking feature that turns the wheel to guide the Escape into parallel or perpendicular spots.
The all-wheel-drive system runs primarily in front-wheel drive, but automatically sends power to the rear wheels as needed when extra traction is required. Should you want to tow some toys to the cottage, this Escape is equipped with the towing package that’ll allow you to pull up to 3,500 lbs (1,587 kg).
The Sport Appearance Package, which also gives your Escape Magnetic-painted exterior accents, Black headlamp and taillamp bezels, plus a unique two-tone interior with partial leather-trimmed sport seats, 19″ premium Ebony Black-painted aluminum wheels; black front fender vents, roof-rack side rails, beltline moldings, and headlamp and taillamp bezels; gloss black-painted sideview mirror caps, upper grille and skid plates; halogen projector-beam headlamps with LED signature lamps; and leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob.
In the wildly popular compact sport-utility segment, you’ve got to get it right, and that’s what Ford has pretty much always done with the Escape.
