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.
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.
