Engine Options

There are two outstanding powertrain options to consider when picking out your next crossover. The base engine, the one you'll find on the new Ford Escape S, is the turbocharged 180 horsepower three-cylinder EcoBoost. This engine comes equipped with Auto Start-Stop Technology, so you get an incredibly fuel-efficient powertrain. It brings you a reliable front-wheel drive train as you take on the day in Wells, ME.

Next up is the potent 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine with 250 horsepower, found on the sporty Escape SEL. When it is properly equipped, this engine is strong enough to tow as much as 3,500 pounds behind it. The Top-shelf Escape Titanium changes the game with a 198-horsepower hybrid powertrain with a continuously variable automatic transmission. And if you want to talk about fuel efficiency, the Escape brings that to you. The EPA-estimated 27 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway are spectacular numbers for a member of the compact SUV class. The all-wheel-drive version of the four-cylinder engine earns a 23 mpg in the city and 31 on the highways.

There is more than just muscle packed in these two spectacular engine options. Each comes with mated to the eight-speed automatic transmission. The available all-wheel drive with Disconnect gives you the confidence to take on any terrain you may encounter on the drive from Kennebunk to Sanford, ME. It disables the rear-wheel driveline with all-wheel drive isn't necessary.

The Ford Co-Pilot360 safety suite brings you a host of technology geared to protect you. The Escape S brings you rear cross-traffic alert, Curve Control, blind-spot monitoring, driver drowsiness, and pedestrian detection among its highlights.

As you climb up the Escape SEL, you get a hands-free power liftgate, a heated steering wheel, and synthetic leather upholstery. Adaptive cruise control and rear parking sensors and navigation are added, as well. When you want the top of the list, you choose the Escape Titanium; you'll find leather upholstery and power-adjustable passenger seat.
