Performance and Capability

The Ford Escape is designed to keep you enjoying the drive, so you better believe it has the power to have some fun. The Escape is fresh off a pretty major update and extra attention was paid to its engines. With 3 engines to choose from you can customize the Escape to meet your needs on the road. The Escape S comes with the 165 horsepower 2.5-liter I-4 engine, while the SE and SEL use the 1.5-liter EcoBoost engine to improve the fuel efficiency. Finally the available 2.0-liter EcoBoost cranks out 245 horsepower to make the Escape a force to be reckoned with.

If you need to take some adventure gear out, the Escape has you covered with a maximum 3,500-lb. towing capacity in its Titanium trim. With the ability to take out a small trailer or boat the Escape is your best friend when having some serious weekend fun in the Belmont area.

The Escape has been getting some attention for its maneuverability and handling; it drives like a much smaller car. Curve Control and Torque Vectoring Control are recruited to bring the Escape's drive to the next level; automatic throttle reduction, anti-lock braking, and torque control work in concert to keep you in control on the road.


The Escape features a unique design that maximizes your visibility with large windows. The smoothly contoured outline makes a good impression on people who are used to bulkier crossovers. An intelligent build features an available 4WD system that monitors traction and transfers torque from front to rear wheels to keep you on the road in even the poorest of conditions.

You'll be amazed at the amount of space available in the Escape. The interior has been designed with cargo involved; easily stow the seating to find the right balance between passengers and gear. The Escape provides up to 68 cubic feet of cargo capacity with the seats down so you can carry what you need. With both seats up the Escape still offers 34 cubic feet of cargo space, plenty of room for everyday storage.



The Escape has a variety of standard and available technology to offer. After its most recent update, a lot of attention was paid to the Escape's compatibility with smart devices and that focus culminated in SYNC 3 voice-activated technology. The SYNC 3 integrates your phone, apps, and other devices so you can have all the power of your modern devices hands-free. SYNC 3 also brings Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility to your new Ford near Charlotte.

Safety Features

Safety is hugely important especially for a family-oriented vehicle like the Escape, so there are plenty of features that will keep you and your passengers safe on the road. With the available Ford Safe and Smart Package, you get an array of futuristic features that are focused on heightening your awareness on the road. It comes with front rain-sensing wipers, automatic high beams, Ford's Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert, Lane-Keeping System, and Adaptive Cruise Control coupled with a forward collision warning. Use these features to stay safe and potentially avoid a collision altogether. Stay safe in your new Ford near Gastonia.
