I had to trade in my Mustang because I was expecting my first baby. The Ford Escape has been a great "mom car" so far. I wanted something cute, but practical and it has fit the bill. The car seat fits behind the passenger seat with a decent amount of legroom still left for a passenger. I can fit the diaper bag on the floor behind the passenger seat too! With a baby comes all sorts of baby gear. We can fit our daughter's exersaucer/jumper in the trunk with the full-size stroller folded up when we make a trip to grandma's. I was worried about how my dogs would do riding with the baby, so it's great to have a car that will accommodate my two cocker spaniels in the "trunk" while I can still see them to keep an eye on them without them being able to get too close to the baby. While the extr... (more)
Story
My family has taken our Escape to the drive-in movies. We lifted the trunk and sat in the back. It was a great time!
Pros
This small SUV gets decent gas mileage while still fitting my 6'8" husband, me, our baby, our 2 dogs, and all of our baby's stuff! It's always a struggle to find a vehicle with enough headroom and legroom for my husband. The Escape was one of the few small SUVs he could fit in. I also appreciate having the tinted back windows to keep the sun off my baby girl. I like having multiple USB outlets in the front. My husband and I can both charge our phones at the same time. The climate control works well for us, since I am always colder than he is. I like the vents in the back that have done a g... (more)
Cons
I had some issues working with Ford when I bought the vehicle, though they seem to be more dealership related than all of Ford. They hadn't gotten my signature on one of my rebates, so Ford wasn't going to reimburse them for it. They incessantly called me and harassed me telling me I had to come back in or they were going to charge me thousands of dollars. As I was 8 months pregnant at the time and still had a full-time job, this rubbed me the wrong way. A different, nicer approach would have definitely been more appreciated. So in terms of customer service for buying a Ford, I was disappo... (more)

The vehicle is a 4X4 with 4 wheel drive. This can be turned on manually. The power breaks are very reliable. My main like about this car is the feeling of safety. The power steering has a natural feel to it. The interior has held up really well. The seat covers and trim are still intact. The mirrors are set up well. The power adjustment control is very useful. The dashboard is arranged in a way that is easy to see. My favorite part is the seats. They are comfortable and easy to adjust. There is plenty of legroom and enough headroom. The center console is setup well and has lots of room. The back seat is roomy and comfortable.
Story
The most fun I had in this vehicle was working as a visiting nurse in the country. Once I was so far out I was nearly out of road. I got outside to look around and noticed a black bear looking at me through the woods. I was glad the car is easy to get into because I broke all records getting back inside.
Pros
The best features are the air conditioner and heat. Both of these work very well. The power steering is easy to use. The power breaks use just the right amount of pressure. The headlights work well at night and in low light conditions(such as a tunnel). I like the color scheme on the outside of the car. The interior colors are pleasant and not distracting. The carpet in the floorboards has held up well. The fabric in the ceiling is still in place. The door handles and the hatchback door are all still working. The wiper blades, front and back, are placed well and work in bad weather. ... (more)
Cons
It is difficult to see when backing up. I once broke the rear window on a trash bin due to poor visibility. Another problem is that the interior lights don't come on automatically when the door is opened. A switch must be used to turn them on. I have had trouble with the cruise control switch. The cruise control itself works great but the switch placement is a problem. When I get out of the car my coat will hang on the switch and pull the cover off. This has happened twice because it sticks out too far. The gas mileage could be better. It has plenty of power but it really sucks down ... (more)

I have had a 2012 Ford Escape for about 3 years now. I really loved it at first. I thought it was a good size for our family and it drove smooth. I have not had any problems with the engine or burning oil and I have put about 60000 miles on it. However, I have had a lot of issues with the alignment that I can't seem to get completely fixed. The fuel life is also declining as the car ages.
Story
My vehicle was the only one that was able to handle the ice last winter that wasn't a 4-wheel drive.
Pros
Smooth ride at first, good size, decent gas mileage
Cons
Alignment, tires

Ford Escape Generations

The Ford Escape has long been one of the most popular compact crossovers on the market, blending technology, style and economy to suit numerous American lifestyles. This crossover has evolved over three generations with a fourth-generation expected soon.

2013 - Present (Third Generation)

The third generation of the Ford Escape ditches its older upright and boxy styling to blend in with more modern, sleeker crossovers. This new generation comes in four variants - S, SE, SEL and Titanium. The previous generation’s Hybrid model was discontinued.

The S model comes with steering wheel audio controls and SYNC voice command. The SE adds 17-inch alloy wheels, a turbocharged engine, SYNC, reclining rear seats, automatic headlights, privacy glass, satellite radio and a four-inch multi-function screen. You also get options such as a power panoramic sunroof, a power liftgate and a navigation system. The SEL model adds heated side-view mirrors, dual-zone automatic control, a nine-speaker stereo system, power windows, a cargo management system, parking technology and a rearview camera. At the top of the Escape lineup is the Titanium trim, packing a Sony audio system, ambient lighting, keyless ignition and entry, full leather upholstery and a power panoramic sunroof.

Under the hood of the third-generation Escape is a choice of three engines matched to a six-speed auto-transmission. The S model comes with 168-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder. If you prefer something with a bit more power, the SE and SEL models offer Ford’s EcoBoost 1.6-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 178 horsepower. The top-end Titanium model comes with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder EcoBoost engine with 240 horsepower. All-wheel drive is an optional feature, while front-wheel-drive is standard.

In 2016, a new version of Ford ‘s infotainment system – now dubbed Sync 3 – was introduced to the Escape.

For the 2017 model year, the Ford Escape got a face-lift. The exterior was refined and made more rugged, featuring a trapezoidal grille and a redesigned hood. The rear bumper got blockier and updated taillights rounded out the exterior changes.

The interiors saw significant changes. Better cup-holders, a comfortable center arm-rest, new storage bins, buttons for audio and climate control and an electronic push-button parking brake are some of the Escape’s new features. Interior refinement was also increased while enhancements were made to reduce wind and road noise.

Under the hood, the SE and Titanium trims got an updated version of the older 2.0-liter twin-scroll turbocharged engine with greater torque and horsepower (now 245 versus the earlier version’s 240 horsepower). Ford also changed the mid-grade 1.6-liter EcoBoost turbo to a 1.5-liter EcoBoost turbo that now made 179 horsepower.

2008 - 2012 (Second Generation)

The second generation of the Ford Escape ran from 2008 to 2012. Its exterior was more truck-like, squared off and rugged than both its predecessor and successor.

Most of the other changes were to the vehicle's interiors, an updated center console, interior lighting system and instrument cluster. Added insulation to the roof made the cabin much quieter. Leather-upholstered interiors, premium audio, navigation, reverse sensing and dual-zone auto climate control could be added as options.

Under the hood, this generation of Escape came a new 2.3-liter Duratec four-cylinder engine that made 171 horsepower; it was paired with a new six-speed automatic transmission. The optional V6 from the previous model was upgraded to 240 horsepower and refined for better fuel economy.

Exteriors aerodynamics were fine-tuned and a full front spoiler and rear tire spoilers were also added to fuel efficiency. Additionally, the second generation saw the inclusion of a new braking system for the Hybrid and a retuned suspension.

2010 saw the introduction of an additional feature that helped parents breathe easy - the Ford's MyKey System - while enabled parents to limit the vehicle's speed and audio system's volume when teens were driving. Ford's Roll Stability Control system and additional safety features helped make the crossover one of the safest in its segment at the time.

The second generation also saw improvements to the Hybrid - cosmetic and under the hood. New bumpers, headlights, taillights and grille were included to blend with the new edge style that Ford was promoting. 2009 saw the introduction of a more powerful engine, added stability control, revised suspension and extensive software modifications.

The Hybrid was offered in either a base model or a limited trim, with an electric motor that produced 94 horsepower and a 2.5-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder gas engine with 155 horsepower (the maximum combined horsepower at any given point was 177 horsepower). Fuel economy, fuel consumption and carbon footprint standards were also enhanced and tailpipe emissions were better in the second generation Hybrid.

2001 - 2007 (First Generation)

The first generation of the Escape made its debut in 2001 and ran until 2007 and it shared many components with its close cousin, the Mazda Tribute. Unlike body-on-frame trucks and SUVs of the era, this Escape (and all subsequent generations) had unibody construction, four-wheel independent suspension and rack-and-pinion steering

This version of the Escape was on the boxy side relative to today. It included standard 15-inch wheels and 8.5-inches of ground clearance, but its large wheel lips, integrated bumper and wide body cladding make it look functional and rugged, while its short front and rear overhangs make it look sporty.

inside it offered seating for five, 63.3 cubic feet of cargo space when the rear seats were folded down and a system to haul two mountain bikes in the cargo area as well as a snap-in pet barrier.

Standard features included air conditioning, an audio system with CD player, cloth and vinyl seats and power windows and locks.

The Escape came in entry-level XLS trim and better-equipped XLT models (V6-powered XLT trims had the option of upgrading to 16-inch wheels).

The first generation also saw the introduction of the Escape Hybrid with a two-tone exterior paint scheme, a unique GPS navigation system, Sirius Satellite Radio, Hybrid Information System and a 2.3L Duratec four-cylinder engine with 153 horsepower and 155 pound-feet of torque. This was an upgrade over the base 130-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine; buyers could also choose the more powerful 3.0-liter V6 with 200 horsepower.
