What's New for 2018?

After the extensive revisions made to the 2017 Escape last year, this new 2018 Escape has relatively fewer updates; that said, the ones that are here are absolutely worth mentioning.

New for the year is another trim level - the Escape SEL - to give you more options on your search for the perfect crossover, and there's now a new engine option for the Titanium trim level: a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder EcoBoost engine hitting 245 horsepower.

The 2018 Escape Boasts Style and Comfort, Inside and Out

Cruising around Grand Prairie in the 2018 Escape will absolutely get you noticed, no matter which of the four trim levels you select - the base S, SE, SEL, or Titanium. Each is as handsomely designed as the former, complete with standard features like 17-inch wheels, LED taillamps, and a rear spoiler for style.

Climb inside the cabin and find spacious seating for up to five adults and a 34 cubic-foot cargo area that can expand up to 68 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down. Add on the Hands-Free Foot-Activated Liftgate in the back and you'll have easy access even with your hands full.

Technology Provides Convenience and Safety

Your drives to, from, and around Grapevine have never been more fun than with the full array of Escape technologies at your command! Up front, the available SYNC 3 infotainment system provides you with voice commands and steering-wheel-mounted controls so you can enjoy music and connectivity while you keep your hands on the wheel and eyes on the road; add on Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility and you'll be fully connected everywhere you go.

There's plenty of safety to go around too, thanks to the standard rearview camera, and the added option of tech like the Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert and the Lane-Keeping System, among others. You'll have the driving peace of mind you deserve.

Impressive Capabilities, Performance and Power

More than just good looks and entertainment, the 2018 Escape can pull its weight - and then some - in the performance department. You have the choice of three engines depending on the trim you choose - a 2.5-liter I4, a 1.5-liter EcoBoost, and the aforementioned 2.0-liter turbocharged EcoBoost hitting 245 horsepower! And with the ability to tow up to a maximum of 5,000 pounds when properly equipped, as well as the command of the available Intelligent 4WD System, the 2018 Escape won't break a sweat hauling your boat or a trailer full of camping equipment for the weekend.

What's Your Escape Trim Level?

Escape S

The S is the base trim for the 2018 Ford Escape and comes in with a starting price of $23,850 MSRP. While it may be the starting trim, the Escape S boasts a number of impressive standard features and functions, all while being capable of achieving an EPA-estimated 21 miles per gallon in the city and 20 miles per gallon on the highway so you can keep cruising for longer.

Open the doors of the Escape S and find a spacious cabin for up to five passengers, and the hands-free convenience of a voice-recognition system to help you peruse music, apps, and phone calls with nothing but your voice. There's also plenty of standard safety tech too, including the SOS Post-Crash Alert system, a rearview camera, and a belt-Minder to remind front passengers to put their seatbelts on.

Escape SE

As the second trim in the lineup, the 2018 Ford Escape SE comes in at $25,605 MSRP. Features in the cabin include a 10-way power driver's seat, dual-zone climate control, and even paddle shifters to provide you with more control and engagement during your drives. Pop open the hood and discover a 1.5-liter EcoBoost engine with Auto Start-Stop that increased your fuel economy to an EPA-estimated 23 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway.

Escape SEL

Starting at a price of $28,005 MSRP, the 2018 Ford Escape SEL offers the same engine as the previous trim but ups the ante for comfort and convenience. Outside, there's a power liftgate in the back t make accessing your cargo much easier with full hands, and there's even Daytime Running Lamps up front to keep you and the road ahead well in sight no matter what time of day it is.

Climb into the cabin and enjoy leather-trimmed front bucket seats, a leather-wrapped shift knob, and the convenience of the SYNC 3 infotainment system with Bluetooth connectivity. You may just wish the ride never ends.

Escape Titanium

Sitting handsomely right at the top of the trim levels list, the 2018 Ford Escape Titanium is the most premium trim and starts at $32,045 MSRP. Nearly every single feature and function for the Escape can be found in this trim; from the SYNC 3 infotainment system, to a premium 10-speaker Sony audio system to Push-Button Start, the Blind-Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert, and so much more, you'll have everything under control. And with the more powerful 2.0-liter Twin Scroll EcoBoost engine under the hood, you'll have 245 horsepower to keep you ahead of your rivals without breaking a sweat.
