2019 Ford Escape Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2019 Ford Escape?

The five-seat Escape is Ford's entry in the popular compact SUV class. It offers a choice of three four-cylinder engines, two turbocharged, ranging from a standard 168-horsepower 2.5-liter  to a high-output 245-hp 2.0-liter. All engines pair with a six-speed automatic transmission. Front- and four-wheel-drive versions are available, and competitors include the Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, Mazda CX-5 and Chevrolet Equinox.

What’s New on the 2019 Ford Escape?

SE trim levels now get the Sync 3 multimedia system, push-button start, remote start and one-touch power windows.

What Features in the 2019 Ford Escape Are Most Important?

The available Sync 3 multimedia system has an 8-inch touchscreen and supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity. Also available is 4G LTE connectivity and a Wi-Fi hot spot, a Sony premium stereo and a self-parking system.

Available active safety features include adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert and lane-keeping assist.

Should I Buy the 2019 Ford Escape?

The Escape was last redesigned for the 2013 model year, yet it continues to be a popular model for Ford. The SUV's ride and handling impress, we like the ease of use of the Sync 3 multimedia system and the available turbocharged engines offer good performance. The cabin, for one, is showing its age with materials that aren't as nice as they need to be and a heavy folding backseat.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
