Low-budget, Hi-tech

Unlike the base models of many cars, the lowest-priced 2016 Ford Escape variant, the "S", still comes loaded with plenty of toys. As mentioned by a reviewer for Edmunds, a comparison with other vehicles in the crossover segment highlights the generosity with which Ford has equipped the Escape. Key technology features standard in the Ford Escape S include:

·         Full range of power accessories

·         Cruise control

·         Air conditioning

·         Backup camera

·         Sync 3 infotainment system

·         6-speaker CD player

That's not half-bad for the base model and of course, as you step-up through the trim levels, the standard and optional list of goodies only gets longer.

 Economy and Power:

With a trio of lively engines available, you'll have no trouble selecting the combination of fuel economy and performance that best suits your needs. For example, Eric Tallberg, a writer for CarGurus, reviewed the new Escape and describes as "impressive" the thriftiness of the base engine.

Meanwhile Boston.com correspondent Bill Griffith titled his review Ford's 2016 Escape: A strong seller for a reason. The "reason" in question may or may not refer to power and fuel economy, but Bill nevertheless labels the Escape a "relative rocket" in the compact crossover category.

If you prefer to see the numbers behind the compliments though, here are the primary specifications for the three Escape powertrain options:

·         The 2.5-liter 4-cylinder delivers 168 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque. Fuel economy estimates indicate that22 mpg in the city and 31 on the highway are realistic to expect.

·         Theturbocharged 1.6-liter 4-cylinder makes 178 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. Fuel economy with front-wheel-driveis a frugal (for an SUV) 23 mpg in the city and 32 on the highway.

·         The top-of-the-range turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder boasts240 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque. Fuel economy rates are 22 mpg for city driving and 30 mpg on the highway for front-wheel-drive Escape variants.

While the fuel economy figures decrease a little if you choose an AWD-equipped 2016 Ford Escape, you'll still enjoy a level high level of engine performance in an SUV crossover that's relatively inexpensive to run.
