Description: Used 2014 Ford Escape S for sale - $11,998, 87,150 miles with Rear View Camera, Auxiliary Audio Input, Cruise Control, Overhead Airbags, Traction Control, Side Airbags
Transmission: Automatic Color:Gray Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (3.6052631578947367 reviews) After owning a Flex for a couple of years and never really liking it, I took stock of what I didn’t like in the Flex and what I needed in a car to be comfortable. I determined I needed smaller (the Flex felt like I was driving a boat), I wanted AWD (the used Flex I had was FWD), I wanted a simpler control panel (the Flex was all touch screen which had me taking my eyes off the road for too long to find the place to touch), but I still needed a rear hatch and a folding back seat to accommodate 2 big dogs. My choices became rav4, CRV, and Escape. The reviews on the escape were excellent and the price for used was as well. My challenge was finding the combination of features I wanted and Carmax made that process quick and easy.

About The Ford Escape

Vehicle Summary

The Ford Escape is a compact crossover sold by the brand since 2000. What sets the Escape apart from its competition is that it's fun to drive and can tackle everyday life with agility and competence. 

This vehicle is a good fit for small families and professionals who need both cargo and passenger space and checks all the boxes for in-town excursions and longer road trips. It has been a star in the Ford lineup since it launched in 2000 and offers a variety of both standard and optional equipment. The 2017 model received a facelift both inside and out and added available Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ connectivity. 

The most recent generation of Ford Escape (2013–2019) is its third and the fourth will kick off with the 2020 model year. The 2017 and 2018 Ford Escape is available in three trim levels: S, SE, and Titanium. All of the Ford Escape trim levels include a six-speed automatic transmission and the SE and Titanium offer FWD or AWD (standard on the Titanium). 

The Ford Escape S in this recent generation includes a 2.5L four-cylinder engine with 168 horsepower. The 2017–2018 Ford Escape SE and Titanium trim levels offer a choice between two new EcoBoost® turbocharged engines, a 1.5L four-cylinder, and a 2.0L twin-scroll.

Ford Escape Trim Configurations

For model years 2013 - 2019, the Ford Escape is available in three trims: S, SE, and Titanium. From 2013 - 2016, the Ford Escape was available with a choice of three engines: a 2.5L four-cylinder, a turbocharged 1.6L four-cylinder, or a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder. In 2017, two new turbocharged Ecoboost engines replaced those previously available, and the 2.5L standard engine carried over. Starting in 2017, a turbocharged 1.5L four-cylinder is standard on SE and Titanium trims with a 2.0L twin-scroll Ecoboost optional on both trims. 

S: Air conditioning, a six-speaker stereo, auxiliary audio jack, remote keyless entry, and steel wheels are all standard. For model years 2013 - 2016, a 2.5L Duratec® inline-four engine and manual seats come standard. 

SE: Auto Start-Stop, torque vectoring control, AdvanceTrac® with roll stability control, the SYNC® 3 infotainment system, paddle shifters, and a foot-activated liftgate (2017 - 2018). For model years 2013 - 2014, a 1.6L EcoBoost® inline-four engine (including active grille shutters) is standard. 

SEL: (2018 - 2019): leather seats, a power liftgate, heated side mirrors, LED lighting, SYNC 3 with an eight-inch display, and a reverse sensing system. 

Titanium: Leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, windshield wiper de-icer, halogen projector-beam with LED signature bi-xenon lamps, roof rack, paddle shifters, and SecuriCode™ invisible keypad. The 2018 - 2019 model includes a 2.0 EcoBoost engine, a standard navigation system, enhanced parking assistance, and high-intensity (HID) headlamps. 

Ford Escape vs Other SUVs

2018 Ford Escape vs 2018 Toyota RAV4:

The Escape offers three engine choices, agile steering and handling, and power, while the advantages of the Toyota RAV4 include a hybrid powertrain option and a variety of standard driver-assist features. If you're looking for size, the RAV4 is three inches longer and four cubic feet larger than the Escape. 

Both vehicles come standard with a 2.5L four-cylinder engine. In addition, the RAV4 also offers a hybrid model. In contrast, the Escape offers two more engine options, including 1.5L and 2.0L EcoBoost models. 

2018 Ford Escape vs 2018 Ford Edge

The Edge offers a sportier drive with V6 engine options and steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters available. The Edge is a bit larger, with a 6.3-inch advantage in the wheelbase and 10 inches of overall length over the Escape; it's also slightly wider and higher. 

The 2018 Ford Escape comes with the choice of three engines: a 2.5L engine rated at 168 hp for the S trim, a turbocharged 1.5L engine and 179 hp on the SE, and a 245-hp, turbocharged engine. The Edge in the same year can be purchased with one of three engines: a 2.0L four-cylinder engine (245 hp), a 3.5L V6, (available on the SEL and Titanium trims), or a turbocharged 2.7L V6 (315 hp) on the Sport trim. 

2018 Ford Escape vs 2018 Honda CRV

The 2018 Ford Escape and the 2018 Honda CR-V offer smart choices and a plethora of options. The Escape delivers a sporty ride, three engine options (including two turbocharged engines) and upscale features like automated park assist and a panoramic moonroof. You might choose a CR-V if a quiet interior, road departure mitigation, and larger rear seat and cargo areas are more important to you. 

The Honda CR-V is 180.6 inches long, 73.0 inches wide and 66.5 inches tall. The Escape is 178.1 inches long (2.5 inches shorter than the CR-V), 72.4 inches wide, and almost exactly the same height at 66.3 inches. 

Drivers may find that the Escape offers more upscale options than the CR-V. At the Titanium level, the Escape has a maximum towing capacity of an estimated 3,500 lbs with the 2.0L EcoBoost and Class II Trailer Tow Package when properly equipped;2 the CR-V can tow an estimated 1,500 pounds with the 2.4L inline-four engine when properly equipped.2

2 Various factors may impact towing capacity, including weight of passengers, cargo, and options/accessories.

2009 Ford Escape

The car more than meets my expectations in handling ability, interior space and visibility is exceptional. Removed the three head rest rest in the back seat which eliminated the blind spots for the driver. Fuel economy is better than I expected and the four cylinder has plenty of power for my driving. Thanks CARMAX. Michael Rossi

Pros

  • Ride and Handling: Feels like you have control of the road.

- Thomas Gilbert, 2013 Ford Escape

Perfect car for me

After owning a Flex for a couple of years and never really liking it, I took stock of what I didn’t like in the Flex and what I needed in a car to be comfortable. I determined I needed smaller (the Flex felt like I was driving a boat), I wanted AWD (the used Flex I had was FWD), I wanted a simpler control panel (the Flex was all touch screen which had me taking my eyes off the road for too long to find the place to touch), but I still needed a rear hatch and a folding back seat to accommodate 2 big dogs. My choices became rav4, CRV, and Escape. The reviews on the escape were excellent and the price for used was as well. My challenge was finding the combination of features I wanted and Carmax made that process quick and easy.

Pros

  • Cargo Space: Big enough for two large dogs without folding back seat
  • Dashboard: Good combination of touch and knob. Don’t have to take eyes off road to search for place to touch a screen
  • Ride and Handling: Zippy with quick response

Cons

  • Fuel Economy: For a small SUV, an avg mph of 20.2 seems low. My Toyota minivan gets better mpg.
  • Seat Comfort: Passengers have commented the passenger row is very uncomfortable so if you will haul passengers long distances, often, maybe test the back row.
  • Weather Versatility:
