2014 Ford Escape Video Transcript
The 2014 Ford Escape earns praise from professional car reviewers for its agile handling, available features and powerful turbocharged engine choices. Does that mean it will suit your needs? Hi! I am Jim Sharifi, Senior Editor with US News Best Cars. Lets take a closer look at what experts say about the 2014 Escape.
The Ford Escape was redesigned for the 2013 model year and is mostly unchanged for 2014. The base engine returns an EPA estimated 22 miles per gallon in the city and 31 on the highway which is about average for an affordable compact SUV. Two optional turbocharged 4-cylinder engines and an optional all wheel drive system are available.
The 2014 Escape comes in three trims and prices start at about $23,000. The Escape comes standard with a 4-cylinder engine and a 6-speed automatic transmission. Critics say its 168 horsepower is adequate, but a few reviewers are partial to the stronger acceleration available from the optional 240 horsepower engine. They also comment that the Escape offers superb handling with good agility and control through turns.
Test drivers commend the Ford Escape for its interior which they say remains silent over bumpy roads and at highway speeds. They also note that the Escape has ample head and leg room adding that the seats are comfortable. Optional features include the MyFord Touch infotainment system with an 8-inch touch screen, a 9-speaker audio system and a motion activated liftgate which opens with a wave of a foot under the rear bumper. Standard features include a rear view camera, a 6-speaker sound system and Steering wheel mounted audio controls.
