Ford Escape Titanium is awesome
December 26, 2018
My 2017 Ford Escape 2.0L FWD Titanium is a top of the line SUV bought new at a substantial discount to MRSP. I had traded in my 2006 Escape Hybrid (103,000 miles, runs beautifully but batteries die when away for more than 30 days) for ICE after shopping Toyota and Nissan equivalents, but decided on Escape after test drive. This Escape Titanium is awesome! The electronics are beautiful, thanks to great Ford engineering. It drives like a dream on 19” wheels, stylish leather seats, zippy 2.0L ecoboost turbo, great visibility, has Vista roof, assisted cruise control, collision warning, blind spot warning lights, auto stop/start (with hybrid it was natural for me), smart sensing headlights and wipers, Navigation, Sync3 hands free voice control, backup camera with obstruction and cross traffic warnings, dual climate control, lane alert, keyless entry, remote start, active parking assist, and more. I tried the AID function on lane alert but turned it OFF when had to quickly counter steer to avoid being taken to unwanted lane, potentially dangerous. So this was a negative, but everything else is near perfect. Ford has built a really progressive vehicle, and if same features are built into their other cars, they have a winner, taking sales away from the competition. I’ve only had the car two weeks, 400 miles, and okay with 20-21mpg in city, better highway (dash shows mpg while driving), and the 8” dash screen is easy to read with touch control. The 10 speaker sound system is awesome. I’m thinking I like this vehicle more than expected! :-) Nice job Ford.
