Utilizing a successful formula that has turned into one of the top-selling crossovers on the market, Ford has redesigned the Escape for a new generation. Combining a versatile interior, a variety of power options, and incredible styling, the 2016 Ford Escape is a leader in the small crossover class. The new Escape comes in three trim levels: S, SE, and Titanium.

Style, Backed By Substance
A stylish exterior of the 2016 Ford Escape features handsome, smooth sheet metal with contemporary lines. This crossover is athletic with an arched roofline and a high beltline. A front fascia gives the vehicle a sense of height, while the angled lower body cladding gives the illusion of forward motion at all times. 17-inch steel wheels are standard on the entry-level S trim, while aluminum wheels are available across all trims, ranging from 17- to 19-inches in size. SE and Titanium models both feature dual chrome exhausts, fog lamps, and front and rear skid plate inserts. The Titanium also features standard roof rails, which are an optional feature at the SE trim level. An exclusive feature for the Titanium is the foot-activated hands-free power liftgate, which is the perfect amenity when you are carrying armloads of groceries or luggage.
Seating for five in the interior of the 2016 Ford Escape comes with cloth upholstery, although the Titanium trim receives standard leather-trimmed seats and optional partial leather-trimmed sport-style seats. Aside from the quality amount of passenger space throughout the cabin, which is plenty for normal-sized adults to sit in any seat, the Escape also offers a generous amount of cargo space. With all seats in place, there is an available 971 litres of space, while this space increases when the second row is folded. The basic Ford SYNC system is standard on the S and SE trim levels, with a 4.2-inch colour LCD screen on the centre stack along with a USB port. This can be upgraded to the 8-inch colour touch screen SYNC 3 enhanced voice recognition communications and entertainment system. The Titanium and SE trims can also be equipped with the power panoramic Vista Roof and a voice-activated navigation system.
Power For All Situations
