2014 Ford Escape Exterior

2014 Ford Escape Overview (See Available Styles)

The Ford Escape returns one year after an extensive 2013 redesign which gave it bold styling that is similar to the Focus as well as improved fuel economy and safety ratings.

For 2014, the Escape keeps the same engine options, the most exciting being a pair of “EcoBoost” engines which promise the power and acceleration that buyers want from a larger engine, while maintaining the fuel efficiency of a smaller motor by way of turbocharging and other technical tricks. It really is a perfect marriage that gives the Escape a leg-up on much of the competition. The smaller of the EcoBoost engines is a 173-hp, turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder, while a more powerful 237-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder replaces the old V-6 offering.

Inside, the Escape’s cabin has better fit and finish versus the outgoing model and offers very good cargo room and comfort. It also offers plenty of technology options including MyFord Touch and SYNC voice commands. The rear liftgate can also perform a cool party trick, with an optional powered rear liftgate that you can open by waving a foot under the rear bumper as long as you have the key fob in your pocket. No more struggling with packages or groceries in the rain.
