What's Under the Hood of the Ford Escape S?

The fun-to-drive Ford Escape S will liven up your daily commute thanks to zippy acceleration, deft handling, and several worthwhile performance features.

For example, the 2.5L 4-cylinder engine produces 168 horsepower, allowing you to quickly take off from a standstill position. You'll also find the accompanying 6-speed automatic transmission with SelectShift® capabilities, which effortlessly transitions from one gear to the next.

There's a long list of performance-oriented features that play a part as well, including:

  • Curve Control
  • Electric Park Brake
  • Traction Control
  • Four-Wheel Disc Brakes with Anti-Lock Brake System

In-Cabin Technology

The Ford Escape S provides you with a convenient experience behind the wheel that is equal parts fun and easy.

To achieve this goal, there's a list of accommodating technology features, starting with the SYNC® Enhanced Voice Recognition Communication and Entertainment System. This lengthy title essentially means you can pull up your favorite playlist or make a phone call simply by using your voice.

If the weather begins to shift, you'll have the Single-Zone Manual Climate Control system to keep your cabin at the perfect temperature. If you want to be able to start your vehicle from a distance, the Remote Start System is an available option.

Finally, the stereo system comes outfitted with six intuitive speakers that create a distinct sound to enhance your listening experience.

How Roomy is the Interior?

Passenger and cargo room are two important characteristics in the Ford Escape S. There's an ample amount of space inside this Ford SUV along with convenient features that make adjusting the interior simple.

Some of the key dimensions include the legroom, which measures 43.1 inches in the front and 37.3 inches in the rear, and the hip room, which checks in at 54.5 inches in the front and 52.4 inches in the second row.

Other worthwhile interior dimensions include:

  • 39.9 inches of front headroom
  • 39 inches of second-row headroom
  • 55.9 inches of front shoulder room
  • 55.2 inches of second-row shoulder room

Altogether, passengers will have 98.7 cubic feet of space to stretch out in during long road trips. If you have a hefty amount of cargo to bring with you, you can utilize the 34 cubic feet of space behind the second-row seats. Also, you can fold those seats down using the 60/40 split-fold-flat rear seat backs, which opens up 68 cubic feet of room.
