Featuring numerous technology upgrades along the road, as well as sleek design updates, the Escape continues to impress year after year. Check out how the Ford Escape has changed throughout the last few years to see which one is right for you.
The Ford Escape was first introduced in 2001 as a compact SUV appealing to buyers looking for increased space and versatility. In 2003, the Escape gained a V6 engine option in addition to the original four-cylinder engine and in 2005, we met the hybrid version providing more options to fit any lifestyle.
In 2008, the Escape was restyled with a new front-end similar to the Explorer and Expedition and by 2009, Ford revved up the Escape’s performance by adding a more powerful V6 engine to the mix. A completely revamped Escape hit the market in 2013 with eye-catching style, increased safety and updated technology making its presence widely known among the competition.
After three successful generations, the Ford Escape continues to shine today among the sea of compact crossovers. With incredible features that just keep getting better year after year like advanced technologies, flexible versatility and efficient power, the Escape is the perfect choice for the adventurous soul.
For the start of the third generation, the Ford Escape entered the market with a fresh redesign to appeal to modern drivers and stand out from the competition. Equipped with new turbocharged engines, new safety and infotainment technology, and a new luxury-themed Titanium trim level, the 2013 Ford Escape came to win the crowd, and did just that.
With flashy new color choices, including Shadow Black, Electric Spice and Magnetic Metallic, you’ll make a statement everywhere you travel in the 2015 and 2016 Escape models. Plus, the new SYNC® 3 communications and entertainment system delivers everything you need to make every journey a memorable one.
For 2017, the Escape gets an overload of technology updates designed to deliver non-stop entertainment, connectivity and safety on the open road. New features include adaptive cruise control, collision warning with brake support, SYNC® Connect providing access to FordPass®, enhanced active park assist, lane-keeping system and a Driver Alert System, allowing drivers and passengers to leave all worries behind and enjoy the ride no matter where the road takes you.
The 2018 Ford Escape features a new SEL trim with leather-trimmed seating, a power liftgate, heated exterior mirrors, signature LED lighting, SYNC® 3 with an eight-inch SYNC® Connect display and reverse sensing system for those who enjoy all the bells and whistles. Also, all models now have a standard rearview camera, SE models now come equipped with front heated seats, roof side rails and a perimeter alarm, while Titanium models now offer a 2.0-liter EcoBoost® engine, navigation system, enhanced active park assist and high-intensity discharge headlamps providing a little bit of something sweet no matter which model you choose.
