Capability
The 2018 Escape brings both efficiency and ability to the table. There are three engines you can choose from, each increasing in power:

  • 5L i-VCT I-4, 168 hp @ 6,000 rpm 170 lb.-ft. of torque @ 4,500 rpm
  • 5L EcoBoost® I-4, 179 hp @ 6,000 rpm 177 lb.-ft. of torque @ 2,500 rpm
  • 0L EcoBoost I-4, 245 hp @ 5,000 rpm3 275 lb.-ft. of torque @ 3,000 rpm1

EcoBoost® engine engines have optimized power and feature an automatic stop/start technology that further helps improve fuel economy and reduce fuel emissions.

You also have the option for Intelligent 4WD monitors. When any changes in the road conditions are sensed, this feature automatically sends power to the wheels that need it so you can continue to drive smoothly, without interruption.

If equipped with the 2.0L EcoBoost® engine, the Escape can tow a max of 3,500 lbs. As an added measure to make sure your trailer is where you need it, you can also engage the trailer sway alert. If your trailer drifts, it will let you know and correct it.

Technology
The 2018 Escape is equipped with drive-assist features that use smart sensors to see what you don’t while driving:

  • BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with a Cross-Traffic Alert
  • Enhanced Active Park Assist (guides you when parallel parking)
  • Lane-Keeping System
  • Adaptive Cruise Control and Forward Collision Warning with Brake Support

Using voice-activated technology paired with SYNC ®3, use all the features on your smart phone on the go at the drop of your voice. Control what you listen to, make calls and respond to texts. You can do this all without taking your eyes off the road or hands off the wheel.

The Ford Pass™ phone app puts convenience in the palm of your hand: find and reserve parking, compare fuel prices, schedule an oil change or tire rotation or get in contact with highly trained Ford guides to answer any questions you may have.

These features come together to allow you to drive with more confidence.

Cargo Space

If you’re loading your car with cargo for a trip (or groceries to take home), you can easily get everything in the back without putting anything down. As long as your intelligent key fob is in your pocket or purse, you can open the trunk by tapping your foot underneath to use the foot-activated liftgate.

There is ample space as it is, and you can create more. With 60/40 split you have 34 cu.ft. of space to pack what you need. If you need a little more space, you can fold both rear seats to open to 68 cu.ft. of cargo space.
