2018 Ford Escape
The 2018 Ford Escape
Expect more from the crossover market. Key West Ford is thrilled to connect our customers to the 2018 Escape - knowing that it will deliver the performance they crave and the all-terrain capability they deserve.
Fold both rear seat backs for a flat load surface and 68 cu. ft. (1,925 L) of total cargo space - or fold down either of the 60/40 split rear seat backs and still have room for a passenger. If you’re carrying items such as luggage, leave both seat backs up and you’ll have 34 cu. ft. (962 L) of cargo space. For more space, available roof rack side rails with available crossbars let you carry more cargo, especially items that don’t transport easily inside the vehicle.
The 2018 Ford Escape has a maximum towing capacity of 3,500 lbs. (1,587 kg) when properly equipped with the 2.0L EcoBoost® Class II Trailer-Tow Package. This package is also available on Escape SE and SEL with the 1.5L EcoBoost engine for a maximum 2,000-lb. (907-kg) rating. Trailer sway control technology, auxiliary transmission oil cooler and paddle shifters are included in the package. When trailer sway is detected, the system automatically takes measures (such as applying precise braking or reduced engine torque) to help keep both the vehicle and the trailer under control.
Curve Control can sense if you’re going too fast and slow the vehicle down using throttle reduction and anti-lock braking. Once you’re into the curve, G-forces tend to transfer more traction to the outside tires than to the inside ones. Standard Torque Vectoring Control enhances that by transferring torque to the wheels that have the most grip, reducing understeer and forcing the front end to hug the inside of the curve.
SYNC® 3 adds convenience to your driving experience with its 8-inch LCD capacitive touchscreen and easy-to-use interface. Discover the system’s quick reactions to your conversational commands and experience the smartphone-like touchscreen with impressive responsiveness. You’ll also find a sleek user-friendly interface to help you connect to and control your compatible smartphone via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. Locate your favourite places with simple destination entry via optional navigation. SYNC AppLink lets you use your voice to control some of your favourite compatible mobile apps while driving.
Available Intelligent Four-Wheel-Drive
The available Intelligent 4WD System continuously monitors traction and road conditions every 16 milliseconds on the 2018 Ford Escape. It can transfer torque from front wheels to rear wheels as needed to ensure a precise blend of handling and traction at all times.
