The 2015 Ford Escape is a compact crossover SUV, perfect for those who want power but are not keen on, for example, the Ford Excursion’s size or bulk.
The Escape offers a classy ride in with its stylish interior and sporty exterior with an engine that delivers just enough power that you want without being excessive. Leather seating offers a comfortable ride while the ample leg and cargo space give all of your five passengers the room they need. With a six-speed automatic transmission, the Escape S has a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine with a fuel economy 22 city/ 31 highway mpg. For a bit more power there is the 2.0-liter EcoBoost turbocharged 4-cylinger engine with 240 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque, optimal on the SE and standard to the Titanium.
Standard features on the Escape S include cruise control, fully automatic headlights a rearview camera, Bluetooth, the SYNC voice-command system, a 6-speaker stereo with an auxiliary jack, the MyKey programmable key fob, four-wheel independent suspension, and 17-inch steel wheels with plastic covers. Parents are able to customize their MyKey fob to set radio volume and top speed limits when their teenagers start driving or the in-laws borrow their Escape.
Special features only available in the Titanium trim level are defiantly worth a look as well. If parallel parking is more hassle than not, you can add the self-automated parking system to do work the work for you. There is also the blind spot monitoring system, the parking sensors, bi-xenon headlights and of course the 2.0-liter engine.
In relevant government safety tests, the 2015 Ford Escape scored four stars for frontal impacts and five stars for side impacts, making it the perfect vehicle for families or even the safety conscious individual. Anti-lock disc brakes and front side-impact, side curtain and driver knee airbags keep the Escape on the road during those nasty Colorado winter storms and expert level protection if you in an accident.
