The Ford Escape S, SE, SEL and Titanium trims each have something very specific to offer their drivers and passengers. Ford made sure to include power, seating, cargo, and tech combinations to suit a wide variety of people. The aforementioned 4WD system makes sure that your 2018 Escape has the exact amount of power, precision, and handling that it needs during every stage of driving. The Titanium trim is your ticket to maximum towing capacity with 3,500 big pounds of pull on your side. SelectShift features give you perfect transmission control, with 6-speeds at your fingertips. Roominess is another feature that you're going to love about the Escape, and the tech features are impressive as well. You get the SYNC® 3 system to stay connected with your touchscreen dash control system, and it's going to put you in touch with navigation features as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Not only are you getting a spacious, quiet cabin, you're also getting some of the most advanced tech available on the planet today.

Great Handling and Performance

2018 Ford Escape InteriorMany are positively raving happy about the horsepower of the Escape in 2018. There are three big engines to choose from, each offering their own particular brand of perfection. Standard is the 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, an efficient engine that puts out 168 horsepower. Another engine is the turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder, spitting out 178 horsepower. Finally, there is the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that gives you 245 horsepower.
