Used Ford Escape Guide

Ford introduced the Escape in 2001 to give buyers an SUV that looked like a trendy, truck-based SUV but didn’t include unneeded off-road capabilities and ultra-rugged towing power.

More than 15 years after its debut, the Escape is still one of the most popular selling SUVs in its class with an all-time sales high of 306,492 sold in 2015. The 2016 model came in at No. 5 in our compact SUV rankings, while the 2015 model came in at No. 6.

The 2017 Escape comes in at No. 3 – after the Honda CR-V and Hyundai Tucson— in U.S. News and World Report’s ranking of compact SUVs.

The automaker continually responds to buyer preferences as evidenced by two major overhauls, one in 2008 and one in 2013. Even the Escape’s minor touch ups between model years are news worthy. The 2017 Ford Escape arrived in showrooms this past May with an array of new technology including Enhanced Active Park Assist, a lane-keeping system, adaptive cruise control, automatic pre-collision braking, and the all-new Ford Sync Connect that includes technology that allows drivers to control many facets of the car from their smartphones.

But if you don’t need all the latest gee-whiz bells-and-whistles, you’d do well to consider a used Escape.
