A Choice of Engines

The Ford Escape’s base-line S trim runs on a 2.5L iVCT engine that can generate 168 hp while also producing 170 lb-ft of torque. At the same time, both the SE and Titanium trims offer one of two powerful engines: a 1.5L EcoBoost engine with Auto Start-Stop that achieves 179 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque; and a 2.0L Twin-Turbo Scroll EcoBoost engine with Auto Start-Stop that can churn out 245 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque.

Okay, so what? you say. What does this mean in real terms? Here’s what: the Escape promises ample towing power—between 1,500 pounds and 3,500 pounds of it, in fact.

High Rates of Efficiency

Finally, the Escape is an efficient vehicle. The first engine, for example, gets 21 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway, and the second can realize 23 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway when equipped with Front-Wheel-Drive, or 22 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway when equipped with All-Wheel-Drive.
