2019 Ford Escape

The 2019 Ford Escape is a brilliant vehicle that occupies a crowded segment of the market – the crossover SUV segment. It’s surrounded by some tough competition and yet, it manages to outsell its rivals. Ford manages to sell around 1000 of these cars every year and there are several reasons why.

The Escape can be had in 4 trim levels – the S, the SE, the SEL, and the Titanium. In general, the mid-trim levels offer the most value for money. The higher trim levels may be a bit expensive, but if you’re looking for performance, that’s where you’ll find it.

The Escape doesn’t pretend to be an SUV at all, despite the categorization. The sleek lines and the fast roofline make it clear that the vehicle is meant for the urban jungle and on-road excellence.


The base escape comes with an inline-4. It’s a solid performer in the sense that it gets the job done. However, the 179 horsepower 1.5 liter turbo-4 is what offers the most value and serves as the ideal choice for drivers. You get low-end grunt and improved fuel economy.

As for the higher trim levels, you can expect hot hatch-like performance thanks to the 245-horsepower turbo-4 with all-wheel-drive.

The 2019 Ford Escape handles like a dream and is not dependent on electronic aids. It does what it does on a purely mechanical level. The ride quality is polished. You have plenty of grip and a firmness, unlike other crossover SUVs, which can be sluggish.

The sporty performance shouldn’t come as a surprise since the vehicle is designed to do exactly that.
