So far Im really surprised with the 2021 Escape in all my needs. At the dealer I test drove 4 2020 escapes and they all all had a jerky transmission shifting as so many people claim in the 2020 Escape. I test drove 2 - 2021 escapes and both shifted perfect So I ended up with the SEL model and so far hasn't had that problem, shifts very smooth and the 1.5L 3 banger really gets up and goes. All around driving MPG is getting better, Im at 24.9 MPG and climbing with 236 miles. Had a 2019 Jeep Cherokee before this and its much smoother ride, better mileage and quieter at highway speeds. I will say this comparing both, the Escape is much easier to get in and out of for a older person 88 years old, very short mother with a bad hip and shoulder. She use to have a rough time of it and she didnt want no help. The escape since is is about 2 inches lower in seat height and narrower in the door jam makes all the difference to her. Windows are lower too so she can see out better as well. I looked as MANY SUV's and my goal was to find a easy get in and out of, this was my only choice. There were a couple others made in South KOREA that would have worked for her but they were just to small for my needs. So if getting a new car or SUV is on your list this might be the one your looking for.


Good car

Good car, but horrible dealership. Dealer never transfer the title, it has been a month since we paid. We are looking for a lawsuit for potential fraud.
