2019 Ford Escape review: Our expert's take

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.

Do not purchase a Ford without looking at reviews

I have a 2019, it is 2022 and my transmission has blown along with the turbine, seal, turbo. I still have 3 years on my note and the car is no longer driveable. So disappointed in Ford to have made such a bad car. My family is a Ford family but after this experience, we will take our purchases elsewhere. 30 years of Ford purchasers, now no longer trust a ford.
