Expert Rating

5.0 (Excellent)
22 City / 31 Highway

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

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

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

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

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

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

2014 Ford Escape OVERVIEW

Last year’s introduction of all-new Escape immediately became one of the segment leaders in styling, technology and fuel economy. Ford’s Kinetic design philosophy, first seen on the Fiesta and Focus, translated well into the Escape giving the vehicle a very agile and athletic appearance.

What's New for 2014

For the 2014 model year, minor updates include: the quite amazing Hands-free lift gate that will be available with the Class II trailer tow package, SYNC now available with AppLink, standard four-way manual passenger seat, and new full leather-trimmed seats standard on the Titanium model. Plus a rear view camera is now standard on all series. Two new exterior colors are offered: Sunset Metallic and Karat Gold. The Titanium model comes standard with an 18-inch sparkle nickel painted aluminum design.

Choosing Your Ford Escape

The Escape is available in three trim levels: S, SE and Titanium. All-wheel drive is available on the midline SE and Titanium. Front-wheel drive is standard on all trim levels, as is a six-speed automatic transmission.

The base Escape comes only with front-wheel drive and the 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Making 168 horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque, it delivers fuel economy of 22 mpg city and 31 mpg highway. Other features include: Six-speaker AM/FM/CD/Aux sound system, air conditioning, audio and cruise controls on the steering wheel, and the parent-friendly MyKey system.

Front-wheel drive is still standard on the SE, as it is on the Titanium, but all-wheel drive is now an option. Buyers choose between two EcoBoost four-cylinder engines: a standard 1.6-liter that produces 178 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque or an optional 2-liter that pushes output to 240 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. Fuel economy for the former is 22 mpg city/33 mpg highway, and 22 mpg city/30 mpg highway for the latter. The SE adds 10-way power driver’s seat and SiriusXM radio, plus access to many other available option bundle packages.

The top-of-the-line Titanium shares the SE's drivetrain options, while adding upscale amenities like leather seats, dual-zone automatic climate control and a hands-free foot-activated liftgate.

CarsDirect Tip

We'd recommend the midrange SE over the base S. But don't rule out the well-priced Titanium—it offers a lot of desirable features for the price.
