Our expert ratings are based on seven comprehensive criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Overview

The Escape is available with a 153-hp 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine paired to a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission; or a 200-hp 3.0-liter V6 with a four-speed automatic. The V6 provides up to 3500 pounds of towing capacity. The compact SUV will also showcase the first U.S. automotive application of seating surfaces made entirely from 100 percent recycled materials. Standard safety features on the 2008 Escape include front and side airbags for the front seats and side-curtain airbags that cover both rows, AdvanceTrac stability control with anti-rollover technology, four-wheel ABS and tire pressure monitoring. The 2008 redesign also brings new wheels, a new interior, three new paint colours and an aux-jack standard on all radios.
