2023 Ford Escape
The 2023 Ford Escape offers a tweaked model with a few upgrades from the previous year. This SUV is great for the city or the highway thanks to its various engine options, such as a hybrid, plug-in hybrid, or EcoBoost. The Escape is striking, spacious, and powerful.
A 33.52cm centre stack screen sits on the Escape's dashboard, ready for navigation and any other infotainment services you need. The SYNC 4 includes advanced voice recognition software, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto Smart Driving Companion.
Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking works by scanning the road ahead of your vehicle. The system alerts you to potential collisions, such as pedestrians in the SUV's path. The brakes are automatically applied if it's unable to avoid the collision, or the driver hasn't taken corrective measures.
Other safety features include a driver knee airbag, tire pressure monitoring, an SOS post-crash system alert, and a Safety Canopy system.
Performance and Power
The base model of this SUV comes with a towing capacity of 907 kg, with the capacity ranging as low as 680 kg on the plug-in hybrid. This power comes from the 1.5L EcoBoost engine, which is standard in the base model.
The 1.5L engine outputs 180 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque that comes with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The electronic traction control aids the vehicle's front wheel driver, especially in poor weather conditions or trips off-road.
Engine upgrades include a 2.5L hybrid with a plug-in optional and a 2.0L EcoBoost. The Hybrid offers 221 hp and 155 lb-ft of torque. The 2.0L EcoBoost offers 250 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque.
