Compact crossovers are ideal for customers who want a ride that combines a high level of affordability with the fuel efficiency and drivability of a sedan and the interior space and ground clearance of an SUV. One of the best examples is the Ford Escape, which has been around for almost two decades. For the 2018 model year—which comes close to the end of the nameplate’s third production cycle—the Escape especially emphasizes sizeable interior space, sporty and engaging performance, and a healthy number of tech features. The Escape is split into four trims, two of which are the SE and Titanium. While the SE is styled as a racing-inspired variant, the Titanium functions as the top-of-the-line model.


Loaded on the 2018 Escape SE is the 1.5-liter EcoBoost inline 4-cylinder engine, which produces 179 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque. Although designed to maximize fuel efficiency, there’s enough output to provide satisfactory acceleration. However, to maximize the ability to merge into traffic and switch lanes, go with the Titanium, which uses the brand-new 2.0-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost I4, which generates 245 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque. The four-wheel independent suspension is tuned to greatly absorb turbulence arising from bumps on the road. And electric power-assisted steering ensures that steering is sharp and accurate. Overall, automotive experts agree that the 2018 Escape is one of the most athletic vehicles in the compact crossover class.


The 2018 Ford Escape—whether as the SE or the Titanium—offers one of the largest amounts of interior space in the compact crossover segment. Seating up to five people, the Escape provides a passenger volume of 98.7 cubic feet. Standard cargo volume—which is the space between the rear bench-style seat and the liftgate—is measured at 34 cubic feet. However, you can fold down the back seat to increase the cargo space to 68 cubic feet.


While compact crossover vehicles usually stick to basic comfort and convenience features, the 2018 Ford Escape is one of the few exceptions. With the SE, you can expect remote keyless entry, a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, leather trim, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a six-speaker AM/FM/CD/MP3 audio system with SiriusXM satellite radio service and SYNC® infotainment integration. The Titanium, in addition to getting an upgraded version of the SYNC® interface (SYNC 3®), exclusively gets a 10-way power front passenger seat, a memory system for the driver’s seat, heating ability on the steering wheel, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a 10-speaker Sony sound system, remote start, a garage-door opener, and smart keyless access with push-button engine start.
