Versatility is a word that’s thrown around a lot in the automotive marketing space, but what does it mean? By our accounts, versatility is your ability to both find a model of a vehicle that matches your needs and wants and then use that vehicle for more than one thing. Versatility is the primary reason drivers buy crossovers, and the reason crossovers have edged out their parents – the cumbersome and thirsty SUV and the lower and less-cargo-friendly wagon.

When it comes to versatility, however, not all crossovers are created equal. The 2018 Ford Escape leads the pack for its configurations and options, delivering a crossover experience that is confident, adventurous and the perfect fit for your unique needs and wants. New for 2018, the Ford Escape SEL gives drivers extra luxury and connected technology with leather trim and SYNC® 3 in tow. There’s a Ford Escape for everybody!

The 2018 Ford Escape stands head-and-toe above the myriad competitors in the compact crossover class. Engines are just one example. Where competing crossovers typically only offer one engine, with maybe a turbocharged variant in the wings, the 2018 Ford Escape has three available engine options.

The first, a 2.5L iVCT 4-cylinder is efficient and cool, delivering 168 horsepower and up to 29 highway miles per gallon. Drivers who want increased performance can opt for either the 1.5L EcoBoost® 4-cylinder engine which provides 179 horsepower and gets 28 or 30 highway miles per gallon (FWD, AWD respectively) or the range-topping 2.0L EcoBoost® 4-cylinder that delivers a whopping 245 horsepower and up to 28 highway miles per gallon.

Both EcoBoost® varieties include auto start-stop technology for maximum efficiency and performance.

Ford’s ingenious SYNC® 3 infotainment system is another example of Ford going above and beyond. SYNC® 3 gives drivers and passengers access to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for maximum entertainment.

Also onboard is SYNC® CONNECT, letting up to 10 devices connect to lightning-fast 4G LTE Wi-Fi in the 2018 Escape (qualifying data plan needed). FORDPASS™ smartphone app connects to your SYNC® 3 infotainment system allowing you to find fuel/charging stations, reserve parking and even remote start your Escape (on compatible models).

The 2018 Ford Escape isn’t the only compact crossover on the market, but it’s far-and-away the best. For more information on the 2018 Ford Escape or to schedule a test drive with this versatile and efficient little SUV, contact us today!
