It's hard to believe Ford's Escape compact SUV has been in production for almost 20 years. The Escape joined its bigger siblings in the Ford lineup — the Explorer, the Expedition and the now-defunct Excursion — in 2001, as the SUV craze from the 1990s spilled into the new millennium. The Escape has always been a somewhat boxy, car-based SUV. With a four-wheel independent suspension and a unibody frame, it mirrored the look of an SUV but drove more like a car. Now in its second generation, the Escape is more of a crossover than a traditional SUV. Technology, comfort, safety and fuel economy continue to be top priorities in the five-seat Escape thanks to a family of efficient four-cylinder engines (some turbocharged), optional four-wheel drive and advanced optional safety features, such as adaptive cruise control with forward collision warning and lane-keeping assist.
Towing vehicles can tow a minimum of 2,000 pounds (see specifications for maximum). May require specific trim level and/or optional features.
Small Family vehicles include mid-size and larger sedans, hatchbacks, wagons, SUVs and minivans with four doors and five seats.
