With the 2018 Escape, you get the best of both worlds, for it offers the utility of a SUV, but handles the curves and corners like a sedan. This in part can be credited to the Escape's Curve Control and Torque Vectoring Control systems. Curve Control slows the vehicle down using throttle reduction and anti-lock braking when it senses that you're going too fast, while Torque Vectoring Control reduces understeer and forces the front end to hug the inside of the curve by transferring torque to the wheels that have the most grip. The new Escape also comes with AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control, which helps you maintain control whenever it detects wheelslip, understeer, oversteer or roll motion.
Buyers of the 2018 Escape have a choice of three advanced powertrains: the 165-hp 2.5L I-4 with intake variable cam timing, the 1.5L EcoBoost for balanced power and efficiency, and the 245-hp 2.0L EcoBoost with Twin-Scroll technology for quick torque delivery. The new Escape also offers off-road capabilities with its available Intelligent 4WD System, which transfers torque from the front wheels to the rear wheels as needed to ensure optimum handling and traction at all times. Also, if you have a trailer or boat to tow, the Escape Titanium has a maximum towing capacity of 3,500 lbs. when equipped with the 2.0L EcoBoost Class II Trailer Tow Package.
