New 2018 Ford Escape Dandridge, TN

 Connected Utility For Your Next Family Adventure - The 2018 Ford Escape


With more than twelve compact crossovers to choose from, it can be hard to find a vehicle that speaks to you, as well as cover all of your needs. That's why the 2018 Ford Escape makes versatility its foremost mission, in both character and customizability. Those who require more suburban tasks of their Escape will find its cargo volume, safety ratings, interior space, and amenities check the right boxes. As for those who crave adventure, the flexible interior, up to 3,500 lbs. max towing, and the Escape's fun-to-drive character will hit home every time.


2018 Escape at a Glance
After getting a visual update last year, one might think the Escape would be left alone. Not so. The 2018 Escape comes with tidied-up trim offerings, and one all-new entry with more value and features than ever. Beyond that, the choices of three engines, available AWD, SYNC 3 infotainment, and the ability to actually tow put the Escape ahead of many of the segment's popular entries. Additionally, with up to 68 cu-ft of cargo space, Ford's compact utility sits at the top of its class in maximum cargo volume.


 The Escape has always been known for looking muscular and competent, and the update it received last year only moved the needle further in that direction. For 2018, the Escape fronts with a large, hexagonal grille with active shutters to improve efficiency, LED headlights, and prominent hood. Turn signals integrated into the mirror housings on some models, roof rails, and a moon roof add to the visual flair. When it comes to a utility with a name like "Escape," this crossover certainly looks the part.


 In the cabin, the 2018 Escape's name feels even more apt. On every model, Ford offers a cockpit full of soft-touch and premium material, with an equally upscale fit and finish. Even the base S model comes with a basic SYNC 3 suite, while higher-trim models get voice control, navigation, and expanded application functions. SE models and up get a moon roof, while Titanium models come with leather upholstery. Every model, however, comes standard with spacious accommodations for five with 34 cu-ft of cargo space behind the rear seats, or a maximum 68 cu-ft with them folded.


Engines and Performance
 Once upon a time, one could expect to find a V6 available on a compact utility like the Escape. But just because the 2018 model's engine lineup is made up of four-cylinder engines doesn't mean you sacrifice power, or performance. In fact, the top-shelf engine enables 3,500 lbs. towing, and all-wheel drive is available on every model but the base-with excellent gas mileage in play, too!
