The 2.0L Ecoboost Engine is the most powerful engine among the 3 options but is only exclusive to the Top “Titanium” trim.

Trim to Choose

The SE trim adds a lot of Creature comforts with a potent engine that’s not deficient on Performance. For people who want a Powerful Engine and a Feature loaded SUV, the Titanium also makes for a good value.

With snappy engine response and strong braking and handling, the Escape feels more like a sport sedan than a touring crossoverEdmunds.com

Engine and Transmission

The 2019 Ford Escape comes in 3 Engine configurations with the 2.0L EcoBoost motor being the most powerful unit of all the 3 Engines on offer.

The base 2.5L naturally aspirated motor just about gets the Job done and offers performance which suits the price at which it is being sold.

The 1.5L EcoBoost is the second engine on offer that delivers 179hp @ 6000 rpm and 177 pounds-feet beginning from as low 2500 rpm. This Engine does duty on the SE and the SEL trims and can be had in both Front Wheel Drive and AWD configurations. The Engine delivers good punch past the 2500rpm mark and makes overtaking maneuvers a bit easier than the base variant.

For people who want the Best in terms of Power and Performance, have the option to go for the powerful 2.0L EcoBoost turbocharged Motor that delivers a massive 245Hp and 275lbs-ft of Torque.

A 6 Speed Automatic Transmission has been mated to all the 3 Engine options. The Transmission does well in shifting gears at the right moments during Hill Climbs or tackling City traffic. We do however feel the need for a better transmission for the 2.0L Engine variant as that would have doubled the fun of driving the same.

Acceleration

Despite its heavy weight, the Ford Escape Manages to outrun nearly all of its rivals, in the 0-60 sprint. The Ford’s aerodynamic design and powerful motor helps it, achieve the 60 MPH figure in just 7.1secs.

The Compact Chevrolet Equinox, with its low weight and powerful Engine manages to top the chart of 0-60MPH runs while its Sister Car, the GMC Terrain manages to stay second courtesy of similar design and performance.

Ride and Handling

The Ford Escape lays down the benchmark for its class in terms of the Handling Dynamics.

The Escape manages to tame corners like a Sporty hatch and offers a lot of confidence coming out of them with minimal body roll. The Straight Line Stability is fantastic as well and there is very little buffeting while doing high speeds at the Motorways.

The Ride Quality has not been compromised for the Sport Handling. The Suspension absorbs bumps with ease and moving over speed humps won’t cause much trouble to the passengers sitting inside.

Braking

The Engineers at Ford have worked hard on improving the Braking Performance of the 2019 Escape, after the 2018 Model received a lot of flak for the same.

The Brake Rotor size have improved over its predecessor and some improvements have been made in the manner the Brakes dissipate brakes.

The improvements have ensured that the Ford Escape now ranks among the top in terms of braking performance in the segment. The Honda CR-V sits at the Top half with the Chevrolet Equinox in Braking while the other competition, still have some ground to cover.

2019 Ford Escape Fuel Economy

The Escape can seat up to five passengers. The front passengers are treated to liberal legroom and well bolstered seats. The back seats offer decent Headroom but the legroom seems compromised and appear cramped for grown-ups.

The base trim feels underequipped against the competition as the base gets a Non Touch Screen 4.2” infotainment display while the competition offers a Touchscreen Unit.

2019 Ford Escape Exterior

Still taut and sleek from the outside, the Escape drops all SUV pretense with its fast roofline and lower ride height–TheCarconnection.com

Design

The 2018 Ford Escape exteriors shout Sportiness from the moment you first see it. The design starts from the Aston Martin-like front grille (signature of modern fords) protruding forwards. From there on, numerous tight line start to flow makes the SUV feel like it has been carefully made and tested in an Aerodynamic Tunnel.

The Rear End looks similar to other SUV’s of the segment while the Skid plates on the Rear Bumper adds to the “Tough” feel of the SUV.

Exterior Dimensions

The 2019 Ford Escape looks Big in the Flesh but in terms of Sheer numbers, it’s compact and smaller than the rest of its rivals.

The Escape’s wheelbase is similar to the rest of the competition and so is the Width and Height.
