Research the Ford Escape with Mark Porter Ford

Drivers have the opportunity to view many standout SUVs across Chillicothe and Athens, OH. Here in our showroom, the Ford SUV lineup has many standouts, and the Ford Escape attracts plenty of attention. There's good reason, as well. The Escape has plenty of options in its lineup, and provides you with a highly satisfying drive. You can learn more about it when you research all the information and see how it stands out against others in its segment.

Performance and Capability

The Escape provides you with standout versatility in its engine selection, which means you will have the choice of what type of performance you're looking for, be it efficiency or added power and capability. There's a standard 168-horsepower engine that is most popular, but there's also two other options available as well. A 1.5-liter EcoBoost® engine offers the most efficiency possible, while you'll get the most power from a 2.0-liter EcoBoost® Twin-Scroll engine with 245 horsepower. Combined with intelligent 4WD options across all trim levels of the Escape, you can count on a responsive ride and strong grip through all seasons in Portsmouth and Jackson, OH areas.

As a SUV, you might not need to do much towing, given you have up to 68 cubic feet of room with the seats folded down inside the Escape, but if you do, the 2.0-liter Twin-Scroll engine is capable of towing up to 3,500 pounds, which is the right size for a small camper or trailer.

Technology and Safety

Onboard the Ford Escape, drivers can expect to find plenty of technology and safety. That includes a connection via a touch display with SYNC® 3 giving you access to Ford+Alexa for Amazon devices, Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™. You can seamlessly integrate your smartphone and enjoy lots of its different applications on the go. There's also an available 4G LTE Wi-Fi connection for 10 devices and limited range outside the cabin which makes it a standout at tailgates or camping trips. Additionally, you can feel confident with the number of safety features which includes forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, and BLIS® with cross-traffic alert. There's also Enhanced Active Park Assist which takes control in parking situations to make sure you're easily in and out.
