Performance & Driving Dynamics

From empty-nester to the first-time car owner, and everyone in between, the Ford Escape offers something for everyone. Thanks to the compact size, the Ford Escape drives more like a sedan, with nimble handling, a tight turning radius, and of course, the horsepower you need for merging and passing on the highways around Grand Rapids. You'll find two engine options available with your new Escape, starting with the standard 1.5-liter EcoBoost three-cylinder that brings you 181 horsepower. To boost efficiency, you're Escape features automatic stop-start technology. When you stop at a red light, the engine shuts off to conserve fuel, and as soon as you lift your foot off the brake you Escape will automatically start up again instantly. Available to you is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that brings you 250-horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque.

For snowy winters and inclement weather around Grand Traverse, you can equip your Ford Escape with the Intelligent 4WD system. This system will continuously monitor wheel traction, every 16 milliseconds, to be exact, to allow it to appropriately transfer torque between the front and back wheels to maintain traction and grip. Looking for even more capability? The Ford Escape has a maximum towing capacity of 3,500 pounds, when properly equipped.

Premium Interior

With everything from value-focused to luxurious, the Ford Escape has the right blend of features and amenities to please everyone. One feature appreciated by Escape owners is the spacious seating for rear passengers. You won't have your rear-seat passengers feeling cramped and uncomfortable, even in the rear row.

If you fold the rear seats down, you'll find a roomy 70 cubic feet of cargo-carrying space, with a low load floor so you can easily load in furniture, bikes, or anything else you can think of. Pair that with the available hands-free power liftgate, and loading your gear is easier than ever before. There are also numerous storage areas, and cubbies found throughout the interior of the Escape, allowing you to secure small items and valuables out of sight.

Technology and Features

The Ford Escape was among the first few models to receive the SYNC infotainment system when it first came to market and has been continually updated and upgraded to keep up with all the modern advancements.
