The Ford Escape Provides the Utility of a Crossover and the Handling of a Sedan

It used to be that if you needed the extra space of an SUV, you had to make sacrifices in terms of handling and space requirements. However, with the Ford Escape crossover, that’s no longer the case. Combining loads of cargo capacity, with nimble car-like handling, and available turbocharged power, it’s a great way for Ooltewah and Cleveland TN drivers to get the best of both worlds.

Under the hood, the new 2019 Ford Escape is powered by a standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 168 horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque. By upgrading just one trim level, Hixson drivers can get a 1.5-liter turbocharged option that boosts output without sacrificing fuel efficiency.

It might be a compact crossover, but there’s nothing compact about the Escape’s capacious cabin. Behind the rear seat, the Escape offers 34 cubic-feet of cargo space, giving you plenty of room for luggage or a full grocery haul, without compromising seating. Need even more space, the second row seats fold down to grow available capacity to 68 cubic-feet.

Looking for great tech? Escape has that too. The SYNC 3 package features an 8-inch touchscreen display with enhanced voice controls, on-board Wi-Fi, nine-speaker audio, and smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Want the latest advanced safety technologies? The Safe and Smart package adds automatic high beams, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, BLIS blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning and intervention, and automatic wipers.
