A range of available engines, including two EcoBoost choices make it easy to achieve the perfect level of zoom for your needs or wants. All engine choices are mated to a six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission. Curious how often you'll have to stop to fuel up? 32 MPG highway* should keep you from having to interrupt your adventures too often.

Sensible engines don't necessarily mean you'll be puttering around though, the Escape offers up to 240 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque. Paired with Ford's Intelligent 4WD, this crossover has nothing to fear from inclement weather or a day spent in Goochland's great outdoors. The small SUV is ready for virtually any terrain you challenge it with. Especially with it's advanced features, like Torque Vectoring and Curve Control, designed to keep you in control.


The exterior of the Escape exudes efficiency (say that five times fast!).  You'll notice the sleek and aerodynamic shape right off the bat, which is specially designed not only for looks, but also to decrease drag. An even cooler feature is the Escape's active grille shutters on the front of the vehicle, which also help to decrease drag.

Hands full of groceries? Muddy vehicle? Worry not! The hands-free foot-activated liftgate is here to save the day. You can access your spacious cargo area without the need to set down whatever you're carrying, or even touch the vehicle.

Speaking of the cargo area, it's 60/40 split in the fold-flat rear row create a maximum cargo area of 67.8 cubic feet. That's enough space to fit almost any gear for a day on the James River or your treasure from a Black Friday spent at Short Pump. Whatever your needs the Escape's cargo area is ready!

Technology & Safety

Possibly it's greatest feature - the 2016 Escape is one of the first Ford models to offer the all-new SYNC 3 infotainment system! Trust us, it's awesome. SYNC 3 infotainment is built with both new hardware and new software. It's a high-speed system that's easy to operate and intuitive. Updates to the system only require Wi-Fi and Apple users will appreciate the ability to use Siri while on the go. "Siri, what's the score of the VCU Rams game?"

 The 2016 Escape's new age technology isn't exclusive to the SYNC 3. It also stepped up it's game with a Personal Safety System and Safety Canopy System that include the latest advancements in airbags. So all your occupants throughout the cabin are protected, should the worst occur.
