If your ideal SUV combines sporty styling, nimble handling, and capability that punches above its weight, check out the Ford Escape. We have a massive selection near Mooresville, IN, at Ray Skillman Hoosier Ford.
Crossover SUVs are known for their convenience, but they aren’t always the most agile vehicles on the road. The Escape’s sporty handling, available all-wheel drive (with fuel-saving disconnect), and peppy engine options deliver an engaging driving experience. Ford’s eight-speed automatic transmission is the perfect pairing for both EcoBoost engines. The standard 181-horsepower engine offers plenty of power to handle freeway driving and zipping through busy city traffic. Or choose the turbocharged 2.0-liter power plant that makes 250 horsepower and 208 pound-feet of torque to help you sprint from the stoplight or tow up to 2,000 pounds. The Ford Escape is also available in several hybrid and plug-in models. Our Ford experts are happy to answer all of your questions, so you can find the one that best fits your lifestyle.
Are your kids outgrowing their wardrobe on a seemingly daily basis? The Ford Escape is spacious enough to absorb growth spurts without cramping anyone’s style. At 40.7 inches, its second-row legroom rivals the front-row legroom of many of its rivals. Other space-saving details include a rotary gear shift dial that makes more room to store drinks, devices, and other small items throughout the cabin. Whether you’re taking the family on a road trip or it’s your week to drive the carpool, passengers of all sizes will enjoy spending time in this compact SUV.
Ford packs a lot of smart technology in the Escape. Its Co-Pilot360 suite of driver-assist features includes blind spot information with cross-traffic alert, lane-keeping assist, automatic high-beam headlamps, and pre-collision avoidance. The competition makes you pay extra for a lot of this technology, but you’ll get it in every Escape. Your Apple and Android smartphones integrate seamlessly with Ford’s SYNC infotainment system, so you can use your favorite apps to access entertainment and navigation features. SYNC3 includes powerful applications such as Waze navigation, and with Amazon Alexa, you’ll never have to walk into a dark house again. Just ask Alexa to switch on the lights when you pull into the driveway.
We mentioned the Escape’s towing capability above, but that doesn’t mean your choices are packing light or hitching a trailer when you’re taking your family away for the weekend. In fact, behind the second row, you have 37.5 cubic feet of space. That’s plenty of room to stow several carry-on bags, plus a few bags of groceries for the trip. If your favorite hobby is hitting the weekend yard sales, the versatile interior has a sliding, split-fold back seats that open up to 65.4 cubic feet. With this flexible interior, you won’t need two trips to bring that charming mid-century dinette set home.
