Our dealer went out of his way to find the Escape I wanted but in white gold. He had it at his dealership in a day. I've only had this car for 3 days but really like it.

2017 awd 2.0 ecoboost LOT OF POWER!

We needed an awd to replace our Subaru which was an ok car but had several engine issues in the 3 years we had it. This Ford really is nicer in just about everyway. I dont know about resale down the road. People wanted our Subaru even with its problems. COOL with me! Love this Escape. Way more comfort, power and about the same gas mileage which Honestly isnt great, was hoping for more. We get about 22. Thought about the zhonda CR-V just because of mileage but other blogs say their AWD only gets 22 as well. Other than that its a fantastic car. I really like the refreshened sheet metal up front and the fact it tows 3500 lbs.

Performance Ford Randolph--Excellent Experience

Best ever car buying experience!" Our experience of buying a car has never been so smooth and enjoyable. The entire staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and willing to place you in the vehicle that is fit to meet your needs and wants. Mary, Greg, Harrison, Joe, and Matt worked together as a team to adjust to our wants. We want to add how the Staff complimented how hard the detailing employees work, and we agree--thats a full team organization. Never did we feel pressured or disappointed. We would like to acknowledge an employee (we don't know his name) he was wearing an army jacket and we believe was responsible for moving cars, charging batteries, etc. He was never at rest. We would highly recommend purchasing a vehicle at this customer driven dealership. To management, we hope you take good care of this hard-working, devoted staff. Happy New Year! Sincerely, Keith Ahlers & Dawn Day-Ahlers.

Great little SUV

We have owned a Pilot since 2004. It's still running great. When it came time to trade another car, we thought we would get another Pilot. We decided too much money for the car. Started looking at small SUV's and after all the comparisons, the Ford Escape came in best all the way around. It does not drive like a small SUV. Great acceleration and runs great whether around town or on the highway. If you anywhere near Knoxville, TN, you need to go buy from Jacky Jones Ford in Sweetwater. Easiest car purchase ever! Great saleman (Stanley) and Finance person (Mike). Them and the rest of the staff truest appreciate your business and actually made buying a car enjoyable!

I am impressed! The first new car I ever bought was a 79 Ford...many problems. Since then I have owned several GM cars. When I looked at and drove the Ford Escape I was really impressed with the quality and features of this car. The rear back up camera is much better than the ones I have had in GM vehicles. The 1.5 engine is really peppy..I've had it a month and again, I am impressed!

Sharing my impressions at this point is difficult because of the limited time I have had to spend with the vehicle.To date my overall impressions are good. I am particularly happy with the flat cargo floor. The vehicle handles very well an the visibility is good. The 1.5 has plenty of power for my needs. The sales person that I bought from was beyond compare.

Repeat Escape Buyer and I am not Impressed

Reviewed by City Car Driver

I really liked the redesign of the Escape but I am disappointed in Ford because of the features they chose to offer (or not offer) for the S model. Other car companies offer more for the base model. At the minimum there should be a satellite radio option, but the 2017 Ford Escape S does not come with it. Nor does it have the newest version of the Ford Sync. If you buy this model do not get your hope or expectations up high because you will be disappointed. Since I do not have to drive that much (less than 100 miles per week) I am not too upset that I had to add my own bells and whistle because it was a lot cheaper than upgrading to an SE. The one thing that was very upsetting though was the fact that there is no satellite line. I had to go to a 3rd party company to get a satellite radio installed outside of the regular radio because the dealership would of charged three times as much for the same thing. Whereas almost all other car companies include a satellite line on their base model (I know because my previous car was a base and it was older but better as far as features). I will probably keep this car for a couple years and after I am not sure I will buy another Ford unless they step up their game.
