2019 Escape Capability

One of the major benefits of choosing a 2019 Ford Escape is that you can choose a performance combination that reflects your driving needs. With several engines, drivetrains, and other performance features to choose from, the 2019 Escape can morph itself to your capability preferences.

The first choice you'll have to make is which engine you want under the hood. A standard 2.5-liter unit balances power and efficiency, offering 168 horsepower and up to 29 mpg highway. Those looking for the best efficiency can find it in the 1.5-liter EcoBoost engine, which is rated at up to 30 mpg highway. Finally, the 2.0-liter EcoBoost offers up 245 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque. Every engine comes paired to a six-speed SelectShift Automatic transmission. 

If you plan on towing with your 2019 Escape, you'll want to pick the 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine. Equipped with both the 2.0-liter EcoBoost and the Class II Trailer Tow Package, the Escape can tow up to 3,500 pounds. That's a feat few other models in the class can match.

The standard drivetrain for the 2019 Escape is front-wheel drive. There's another option for drivers seeking robust capability, however. The available Intelligent Four-Wheel drive system can automatically engage when extra grip is needed. The system moves power to the rear wheels to help improve handling and grip alike. This can be an advantage both on dry roads and in slick conditions.

Stability is a major performance concern as well. Several standard features are built into the 2019 Escape to help ensure you stay planted to the road.

  • Curve Control
  • Torque Vectoring
  • AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control

2019 Escape Interior and Features

The 2019 Escape has a great many interior options. Each one offers roomy seating for up to five, but there's much more than that. You can choose to have your seats wrapped in either cloth or leather upholstery, and a variety of interior colors let you pick a look that suits your personal taste. An available panoramic vista roof lets in light when you need it and offers excellent night sky views.

Along with creature comforts, the Escape offers excellent practicality. It is an SUV, after all. Its dimensions and design make it a great pick for drivers who frequently haul bulky cargo, whether its sports equipment, art supplies, or music gear. You'll have up to 34 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats. If more space is needed, you can fold down the rear seats and get up to 68 cubic feet of cargo space.

The 2019 Escape also keeps up with modern expectations for automotive technology features. Ford's broadly respected SYNC 3 infotainment system gives you control over apps, audio, navigation, and more. Plus, you can even get built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi connectivity. Another exciting technology feature in the 2019 Escape is its compatibility with the FordPass app. With this application, you can find parking before arrival, remotely lock/unlock and start your Escape, schedule service, and more. 

Smart features extend into the realm of safety as well. The new Escape is packed with available features to help mitigate collisions. Forward Collision Warning with Brake Support uses radar to detect stopped or oncoming vehicles, offering an alert and automated braking when necessary. Lane Keeping System can let you know if you drift into another lane and even provide corrective steering. Blind Spot Information System lets you know when vehicles are in your blind spot, while Rear Cross-Traffic Alert keeps you away while backing up. Other features like auto high-beam headlamps and rain-sensing windshield wipers help make the Escape even safer.
