The New Ford Escape in Fort Collins, CO

The Ford Escape - Flexible For Your Daily Life, and Fast When You Want to Get Away From It

The family crossover represents more than flexible accommodations for all of life's needs, but also the means to get away from it all. But where competing models fall short in balancing the utility side of the equation, the 2018 Ford Escape does so with confidence, while providing all the amenities and choice our Windsor, CO, Longmont, CO, and Loveland, CO drivers look for in such a model. That it lives up to its name is but the icing on the cake.

Exterior & Interior

Imagine your next getaway in a utility that emanates conviction, function, and premium flair, and its easy to envision the Escape as your ticket. Stylings like a hexagonal grille and aggressive headlamps add formidable character, while integrated roof rails bring a more practical visual edge-as well as usefulness. The available sunroof and Sport Appearance package add a more upscale flavor, and a power tailgate is also offered.

On the inside, the Escape remains true to form. Five passengers can fit in the premium-feeling cabin without knocking elbows, or you can fold the rear seats flat for up to 68 cubic feet of cargo volume-a class-leading figure. From the driver's seat, all climate and available SYNC 3 controls are within easy reach, as are numerous soft-touch surfaces and a storage bin with an integrated USB port. On higher trim models, leather upholstery and other premium amenities like a Sony sound system and SYNC3 with built-in Wi-Fi become available.

Engines & Performance

  • 2.5-liter inline-four with 168 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque. EPA-estimated 21 mpg city/29 mpg highway with FWD (S trim only).
  • 1.5-liter EcoBoost inline-four with 179 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque. EPA-estimated 23 mpg city/30 mpg highway with FWD, 22 mpg city/28 mpg highway with AWD.
  • 2.0-liter EcoBoost inline-four with 245 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque. EPA-estimated 21 mpg city/28 mpg highway with FWD, 20 mpg city/27 mpg highway with AWD (Titanium trim only).
  • Three engines are offered on the Escape, and all but the first (available on the base trim, only) can be had with all-wheel drive. All three offer plenty of power and competitive efficiency, but the highlights are that both EcoBoost options are rated to tow: 2,000 lbs. with the 1.5-liter option, and 3,500 lbs. with the 2.0-liter. Whichever you choose, linear power delivery and solid acceleration also contribute to the Escape's fitting name-and makes it easy to pass and merge.


    Among the most popular Escape models is the SE, which comes standard with dual-zone climate control, 10-way power driver's seat, SYNC 3 with smartphone integration, Bluetooth, a rear-view camera, and heated seats. On higher trims, SYNC Connect functionality with Wi-Fi, and remote locking/unlocking through your smartphone is available, as are leather upholstered seating, premium audio, a hands-free tailgate, and push-button start. On the safety front, blind-spot monitoring, parallel and reverse parking aids, forward collision warning, and lane-keeping assist are available.

    The easiest way to find out if the Escape speaks to you is to get behind the wheel-and that's an opportunity that our Ford dealership in Fort Collins, CO would be happy to provide.
