2018 Ford Escape Overview:
The 2018 Ford Escape ranks high among compact SUVs for its impressive performance and athletic handling, spacious interior, and well-appointed, tech-heavy cabin. These attributes put it in the running as a Motor Trend Car of the Year finalist for 2017 and ranked it among the best compact SUVs according to Cars.com. The 2017 Escape was also named one of the best compact SUVs for money and for families by U.S. News and World Report. If you're shopping for a new crossover this year, here's what you need to know about the Escape.

What's New for the 2018 Ford Escape?

Despite a full redesign just last year, changes for 2018 will excite fans of the Escape. A few new features have been added to the SE trim, including heated front seats, perimeter alarm, and roof rails. A new trim, the SEL, has been slotted in under the fully loaded Titanium trim. The SEL model is equipped with leather upholstery, ambient LED lighting, a power liftgate, an upgraded infotainment system, heated outside mirrors, and rear parking sensors. In addition, a new engine has been introduced for the Titanium trim. This powerhouse turbo-four provides 245 horses.

Trims and Features

The 2018 Ford Escape crossover comfortably accommodates five passengers and offers best-in-class cargo space of 68 cubic feet with the rear seat folded flat and 34 cubic feet with the rear seats up. In the base, trim, the S, you'll have a six-speaker stereo with an infotainment system. It's also equipped with Ford's MyKey security system. The S is the only trim not available with all-wheel drive.

The SE trim adds satellite radio, a power-adjustable driver's seat, and two-zone automatic climate control, followed by the SEL trim described above. In the top-of-the-line Titanium trim, upgrades include an auto-dimming rearview mirror, power liftgate, upgraded infotainment system with smartphone integration, a panoramic moonroof, and 10-speaker premium audio system.

Performance

With three available engines, the 2018 Ford Escape ranks among the top of the compact crossover class when it comes to performance. The standard equipment includes a 168-horsepower four-cylinder engine and six-speed automatic transmission. It provides an EPA-estimated 21 city/29 highway miles per gallon. Next up is a 179-hp turbo-four, followed by a larger version that offers 245 horses. The mid-range engine gets 23/30 city/highway mpg, and the most power offers 22/29 mpg. All models come with standard front-wheel drive, but can be upgraded to all-wheel drive. Reviewers praise the sharp, accurate handling and smooth suspension.

Safety

The 2018 Ford Escape boasts outstanding crash test scores, including a five-star overall rating from the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration and the highest crash test ratings in four out of five categories from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Ford offers a host of available safety features in the Escape, including automatic parking assist, blind spot monitoring, lane keep assist, rear cross traffic alert, automatic high beams, a monitor that can detect driver drowsiness, and adaptive cruise control.

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)

Note: All Ford Escape MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.

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.
