What's New for the 2018 Ford Escape?

This year, Ford introduces a brand new Escape model, the SEL, which slots in between the mid-range SE and the top-trim Titanium. It's perfect for buyers who want an excellent deal on luxury. Inside, you'll find handsome leather upholstery and generous passenger space. A power liftgate makes life easier when you've got heavy loads to haul. Best of all, you can enjoy all of these features, plus the innovative SYNC 3 infotainment system, without spending top dollar on the Escape Titanium model.

Trims & Features

This punchy compact crossover is now available as four trim models - the S, SE, SEL, and Titanium. When you go with the Escape S, you're saving the most money, but you'll never know it, thanks to its spacious, handsome cabin and impressive features list, which includes Bluetooth connectivity and SYNC voice controls. Pay a little extra for the Escape SE, and you can increase on-road comfort with upgraded cloth upholstery and dual-zone automatic climate control. A rear privacy glass makes you feel at home on the road. The new Escape SEL model offers a luxurious ride at an affordable rate. It includes supple leather upholstery and Ford's cutting-edge infotainment system, SYNC 3. This technology includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, displaying smartphone apps like Maps and Messages directly on your central touchscreen. You can even use your phone's sophisticated voice controls to reroute the Maps app or call home - all without lifting a finger from the wheel. In the Escape Titanium, you're never short on style. This top-trim model comes with all of the SE items and then some. Its keyless entry and ignition and remote start features mean you can make a quick getaway from work. Heated 10-way adjustable power seats will keep you cozy, even on frigid winter days.

In your Escape, you're never short on power. Even the base S model packs a significant punch with its 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, churning out 168 horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque for swift acceleration from a dead stop. The Escape SE and SEL get you up to speed even faster, with a turbocharged 1.5-liter engine that makes 179 horses and 177 pound-feet of torque. In addition to increased athletic prowess, this engine also delivers the line's best EPA ratings, earning up to 23 city/30 highway mpg. If you're all about speed, look to the Escape Titanium. Under the hood, you'll find a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that ups the ante with 245 horses and 275 pound-feet of torque.

In government crash tests, the new Escape earned a perfect five-star rating for overall protection. More than that, though, this crossover offers a bevy of high-tech driver aids designed to help you avoid danger. All Escapes come with a rearview camera, helping you spot any stray grocery carts or pedestrians before you pull out of a tight spot. Add the Safe and Smart package, and you'll enjoy comprehensive protection with blind-spot monitoring and forward collision mitigation.
