Base Trim Level
The 2017 Ford Escape is very similar to the 2016 model year and has three different trim levels, the S, SE, and Titanium trims. Both the SE and Titanium trims can be upgraded to have all wheel drive, but the S can only be paired with front wheel drive.
The base trim level, the Ford Escape S, comes with a four-cylinder engine that produces around 165 horsepower. It also has very impressive fuel efficiency of around 30 mpg when driving on the highway. While it is not very powerful, it is a very affordable SUV option with a base price of under $23,000.
Premier Trim Level
Those that are willing to pay a bit more for their Ford Escape will be able to upgrade to a more powerful engine with the Titanium trim. This trim levels comes with a turbo-charged engine that can produce closer to 200 horsepower, but has slightly worse fuel efficiency. The Titanium trim level also comes with a few additional safety and luxury features, which is factored into the base price of $31,000.
Escape Safety Features
The 2017 Ford Escape has had above average safety ratings thus far. It is considered to be safer when it is coupled with the all wheel drive option, but it also has a number of interior safety features including airbags, brake assist, and stability control. Those that are looking for more safety features, including the rearview camera and blind spot monitoring will likely want to upgrade to the Titanium trim.
Interior Features of the Escape
The Ford Escape has a standard base interior compared to competing SUVs. While it comes standard with cloth interior and only a basic level of technology, it can be upgraded to include more impressive interior features and tech upgrades. Some of the most common upgrades, which are included for free in the Titanium trim, include a touchscreen display and more impressive sound and audio system.
How to Calculate The Dealer Cost of a Ford Escape
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Ford Escape invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of all the options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here)

A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
