    Expert Rating

    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.

    2015 Ford Escape OVERVIEW

    Since the Ford Escape’s extensive redesign in 2013, this compact crossover SUV has remained essentially unchanged. Sales continue to climb, keeping this popular vehicle among the top SUVs.

    What's New for 2015

    The only news for the 2015 Escape is the addition of a new exterior color: Magnetic Metallic.

    Choosing Your Ford Escape

    The Ford Escape’s three trim levels -- S, SE and Titanium -- give you lots of options and a good list of standard equipment.

    S

    At the base S level, the only engine is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder with 168 horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque. There’s a six-speed automatic transmission and the S trim is available only with two-wheel drive. Government fuel economy estimates are 22 mpg in the city and 31 on the highway for a combined average of 25 mpg.

    Other standard features of the S trim level include the SYNC with MyFord voice-activated entertainment and information system, a six-speaker AM/FM/CD/MP3 audio system, a rearview camera, and Ford’s MyKey system that allows parents to program teenagers’ keys to limit speed and stereo volume. There are no options available for the S trim.

    SE

    Stepping up to the SE trim gives you a 1.6-liter EcoBoost turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 178 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. This is the only trim that also gives you the chance to opt for either the S-trim’s engine or the 2-liter EcoBoost turbocharged four-cylinder engine with a peak of 240 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. No matter which engine you choose you’ll get the same six-speed transmission. The SE trim also allows you to select a four-wheel drive model. Fuel estimates for the 1.6-liter engine are 26 mpg combined for two-wheel drive and 25 mpg combined with four-wheel drive; these figures drop by one mpg with the 2-liter engine.

    The SE’s standard audio system is the same as that on the S model with the addition of SiriusXM radio. This level also adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat and a keyless-entry keypad as standard equipment. However, you can add some personal touches by adding some optional equipment such as a leather-wrapped steering wheel, partially leather-trimmed seats, a panoramic sunroof and a power liftgate. You can also upgrade to the SYNC with MyFord Touch which expands your ability to stay connected with the rest of your world or upgrade the audio system to nine speakers.

    Titanium

    The top-level Titanium trim offers the same standard engine as the SE, as well as the option for the 2-liter engine. Among other standard features include the hands-free power liftgate, automatic climate control, a universal remote and a Sony 10-speaker audio system. SYNC with MyFord Touch is also standard as are leather-trimmed heated front seats and a memory system for the driver’s seat and outside mirrors.

    Available options for the Titanium trim include a voice-activated navigation system, active park assist and a sunroof.

    CarsDirect Tip

    We'd skip the base S in favor of a more comfortable SE or Titanium. As you add options to your Ford Escape's equipment list, though, the price climbs quickly. Make sure that your chosen additions are worth the extra cost.
