Offering maximum versatility and great fuel economy, the Ford Escape is a best-selling compact SUV made for the rigours of life in New Westminster, B.C. In fact, Ford owners across the Lower Mainland love this vehicle for its smart design, roomy interior and choice of powerful engine options – and, we have to agree! It’s a great preowned option for any family, student, senior or professional.
Here are three reasons why you should drive a used 2016 Ford Escape:
Designed with Comfort & Convenience in Mind
The 2016 Escape is loaded with a number of comfort and convenience features – many of which you may be surprised to find in a used SUV at this price point. This includes Ford’s SYNC 3 touchscreen infotainment, which replaces My Ford Touch with a much more user-friendly interface. Drivers also love the high-quality upholstery and trim materials, rearview camera, USB ports, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, Ford's My Key system and a hands-free rear hatch.
Impressive Passenger & Cargo Space
Even though the 2016 Ford Escape is a compact SUV, the interior is anything but. With room for five, the front and rear seats offer ample leg and head room for even the tallest passengers, and the second-row seatbacks also recline. Cargo capacity is an impressive 34.3 cubic feet with the rear seats in use and 68.1 cubic feet when they are folded down.
Choice of Three Engines
Ford offers a choice of three powerful and fuel efficient engines for the Escape:
• 168 horsepower, 2.5-litre four-cylinder, offering up to 25 mpg combined
• 178 horsepower 1.6-litre turbocharged four-cylinder, offering up to 26 mpg combined
• 240 horsepower 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder, offering up to 25 mpg combined
Front-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission all come standard, but all-wheel drive is optional on all models, except the base. The 2.0-litre also has a towing capacity of 3,500 pounds, which many used SUV shoppers like, as it allows them to pull their toys to the campsite or lake.
