2009 Ford Escape Overview Out with the old and in with the new must have been Fords philosophy for 2009. Out is the old 2.3-liter four, in is a new 2.5-liter that produces a respectable 171-hp. Similarly, the 3.0-liter V6 has also gained horses - up from 200 to 240-hp. The 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine can be had with a five-speed manual on the base model, or a new six-speed automatic transmission on all other trims. The revised 3.0-liter V6 uses the new six-speed automatic exclusively. Standard safety features include front airbags, front seat mounted side airbags and side-curtain airbags for front and rear passengers. AdvanceTrac stability control with anti-rollover technology is now standard across the board. Four-wheel ABS and tire pressure monitoring round-out the impressive list.
