Ford Escape Driving Experience
The Ford Escape is a fun and dynamic front-wheel drive (FWD) vehicle with multiple engine choices. You also have the option to upgrade to full-time all-wheel-drive (AWD).
Regardless of your powertrain, the Ford Escape provides crisp steering and responsive handling, so it feels like a car but still has all the benefits of an SUV.
The base engine for the Ford Escape is a 168-horsepower, 2.5-liter inline, four-cylinder engine. It’s paired with a standard 6-speed shiftable automatic transmission to deliver 170 lb-ft of torque. This powertrain delivers impressive fuel economy for an SUV with 22 miles per gallon in the city, 31 on the highway, and a combined total of 25 MPG.
Under the Hood of the Ford Escape SE and Titanium
The Ford Escape SE and the top-of-the-line Titanium come with a standard 1.6-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine. This engine is also paired with the 6-speed shiftable automatic transmission, and it delivers an exhilarating 178-horsepower along with 184 lb-ft of torque.
While the all-wheel drive Ford Escape produces 22/30/25 miles per gallon (city/highway/combined), the front-wheel drive versions offer more efficiency at 22/30/25 mpg.
If you need more power to fuel your Escape, you can upgrade to the sprinty 2.0-liter turbocharged EcoBoost inline four-cylinder engine. This engine delivers a powerful 240-horsepower with 270-lb-ft of torque.
With this engine, fuel economy is rated at an estimated MPG of 21/28/23 (city/highway/combined) for all-wheel drive and 22/30/25 mpg for front-wheel drive.
