To get around the Newtown, Southampton, and Langhorne areas, you need a dependable car. The Ford Escape fits that bill, and it has been a best-selling compact SUV for years. Whether you like to go on frequent road trips or you just haul your family around town, the SUV is a smart car to buy. Read our 2019 Ford Escape review to see if this vehicle best suits your needs. 

Ford Escape Performance

You have the choice of three engines for this SUV, each of which is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. The base engine is a 2.5L inline 4-cylinder engine with 168 horsepower. For better performance, the Escape also has an optional 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine producing 179 horsepower.

For the most power, consider getting the 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with an impressive 245 horsepower. This engine also gives very quick acceleration, as it can go from 0 to 60 MPH in approximately seven seconds. It is the standard engine for the top-tier Titanium trim.

Front-wheel drive is standard, but you can upgrade to all-wheel drive if you want better traction for your vehicle. The agile steering and firm handling allow you to drive around town, and even turn tight corners with ease. It feels like you are driving a smaller sedan instead of an SUV.

Ford Escape Interior and Cargo Space

The Escape's maximum seating capacity is five people within two rows. The standard seats are cloth-upholstered. With the higher trims or upgrades, you can have leather seats. All the seats are supportive and comfortable, and the front seats have a solid backrest that you will especially appreciate on long road trips.

The Escape has better than average cargo space for its class. You'll get 34 cubic feet behind the back row, and with the back seats turned down, you have a maximum of 64 cubic feet. The added space is a boon if you need to haul several boxes for work or put camping gear in the back.

Technology and Safety Features

For the 2019 Ford Escape models, the SYNC® 3 infotainment system is now standard in all but the base S trim. The SYNC® 3 has an 8-inch touchscreen, and Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ connectivity. Other available technology features include satellite radio, a six-speaker radio/CD player audio system, keyless ignition, dual-zone automatic climate control, and heated front seats to keep you warm on those chilly days.

The standard safety features include a rearview camera for ease when backing, along with airbags and traction control. To truly protect your car and passengers, get the optional safety features, which include Forward Collision Warning with Emergency Braking to help prevent or mitigate collisions; Blind Spot Monitoring; Adaptive Cruise Control to help you maintain safe distances when cruise control is engaged; Rear Parking Sensors; Rear Cross-Traffic Alert; Lane Keeping Assist to detect and alert you when you begin to drift from your lane; and automatic high beams.
