To help drivers around Glen Allen, Ashland, and Short Pump learn about this appealing SUV, Richmond Ford West created this 2019 Ford Escape review.

In the following sections, we'll be diving into certain aspects of the Escape that stand out, including performance, interior space, and safety technology. So, continue reading to see if this model makes sense for your lifestyle!

2019 Ford Escape Specs

To help you customize the performance of your Ford Escape, there are three potential engine options you can select from, with two specific motors standing out.

First comes the 2.5L 4-cylinder, which can produce upwards of 168 horsepower. The alternative option is a 2.0L EcoBoost® that can generate up to 245 horsepower.

To help add to the overall performance, Ford has also implemented a range of additional features, such as a 6-speed SelectShift® transmission and Auto Start-Stop technology that works to lower fuel consumption by shutting off your engine when you come to a standstill.

Finally, the 2019 Ford Escape has a maximum towing capacity of 3,500 pounds. There's also a class II trailer tow package that makes hauling around the family boat simple.

Interior Measurements

The 2019 Ford Escape can comfortably seat five people and offers an ample amount of interior cargo room, too.

This cargo room varies depending on the second-row seats. For example, you can leave those seats standing and utilize 34 cubic feet of cargo space. You also can fold those second-row seats down and enjoy 68 cubic feet of cargo volume.

Plus, the addition of the hands-free, foot-activated liftgate means you can easily access the trunk, even if you're carrying a full load of groceries.

Safety Technology

Safety is always a top priority with any Ford model, and the 2019 Ford Escape features the Ford Safe and Smart™ package to ensure you and your passengers are protected.

For example, the available BLIS® with Cross-Traffic Alert warns you of vehicles driving in your blind spot if you attempt to change lanes on a congested highway.

Additionally, there's the available Adaptative Cruise Control and Forward Collision Warning with Brake Support. This specific system works in two different ways.

First, Adaptative Cruise Control will monitor your distance from the vehicle in front of you, and then work to maintain this distance by speeding up and slowing down appropriately. As for Forward Collision Warning with Brake Support, it sends you an audible warning if a front-facing collision seems likely. If you fail to react in time, Brake Support will kick in and attempt to decelerate the SUV for you.
