Welcome to Joe Myers Ford's Escape Review

It's been a while since the Ford Escape's last makeover; in fact, it's the mid-size SUV's first complete redesign since its birth in 2001. But good things come to those that wait, right? In the case of the Escape, that's exactly right. It's almost as if engineers crafted a vehicle specifically for previous Ford Escape owners in Houston. Nearly every element is improved, including its styling, interior quality, mpg ratings and powertrains. The 2013 Ford Escape is also built with families in mind. New safety features include a blind-spot warning system and the Safety Canopy and Personal Safety airbag systems, just to name a few. The all-new Ford Escape in Houston also can be equipped with neat technology features like active park assist, which automatically parallel parks the vehicle; curve control, a system that automatically slows the vehicle if it's taking a corner too quickly; and the SYNC and MyFord Touch infotainment system, which puts navigation, vehicle controls and radio in one convenient location for easy use. Houston Ford Escape drivers and their families can also take comfort in the fact that this accomplished SUV can tow up to 3,500 pounds when properly equipped, making a weekend road trip to the lake a snap.

Ford Escape: Standard & Available Features for 2013

Ford's flagship compact crossover SUV comes in four well-appointed trims: the Escape S, SE, SEL and Titanium. Trims, engine options and package upgrades are plentiful, and allow Houston Ford shoppers to build an SUV with all of the equipment they need. On the lower trim levels you can expect to find an impressive set of convenience features including cruise control, full power accessories, air-conditioning and a tilt/telescoping steering wheel. Select the 2013 Escape SEL and you'll have access to a wealth of high-tech amenities. The SEL's Technology and Parking Technology Packages are two notable equipment groups that add features like remote start, reverse park assist, a rearview camera, and front and rear parking sensors.

Most Escape trims also come with (or can be equipped with) the SYNC voice-command interface, which highlights several features of its own. The SYNC system includes an integrated iPod interface and Bluetooth, and enables drivers to perform functions like hands-free calling and voice-activated navigation.

Engine & Powertrain Specs for the 2013 Escape

This year, the Escape offers two new engines that will save consumers fuel and money: the 1.6- and 2.0-liter Ti-VCT inline-4 EcoBoosts. These advanced motors have been a central focus in 2013 Ford Escape reviews. They come standard or available on all but the base trim. Both engines use direct fuel injection and turbocharging, along with twin independent variable camshaft timing to deliver maximized fuel economy. The new EcoBoost engines are powerful and efficient, and deliver a performance that makes the 2013 Escape "quite engaging to drive," according to Consumer Guide. While there is a lot of excitement surrounding this new powertrain technology, the base trim's standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder is also a solid choice and it delivers a respectable 31 MPG highway.

The 2013 Escape Was Designed With Your Safety in Mind

Peace of mind is built into the 2013 Ford Escape, starting with a 3 year/36,000 mile bumper-to-bumper Ford warranty, and culminating with a long list of cutting-edge safety features. One such feature is the newly available Blind Spot Information System, which features Cross-traffic alert and a sensor-based blind-spot mirror. When a vehicle is detected entering your blind spot, BLIS displays an alert in the side mirror. The system's Cross-traffic alert function will also warn you if traffic is detected approaching your vehicle's sides, such as when you're pulling out of a parking spot, for example. Another great feature, especially for parents, is Ford's programmable MyKey. The system allows you to set up parental controls that limit vehicle speed and radio volume when your teens are driving. The Escape's security features also include a comprehensive airbag system, antilock disc brakes, and traction and stability control.
