The 2018 Ford Escape is one of the best new Ford cars on the market. It is a compact crossover SUV available in four trim levels: S, SE, SEL, and Titanium.

Trim Levels

Because the Ford Escape S model is somewhat bare in terms of features, you should start your search from the SE trim which comes with better wheels, an upgraded engine, a driver seat with power adjustment, and more available options.

The Ford Escape SE is equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels, sound-reducing window glass, a keyless entry keypad, added chrome exterior trim, a turbo-charged 1.5-liter engine that gets 179 horsepower and 177 lb.-ft. of torque, and many other sterling features.

The 2018 Ford Escape SEL has all of the equipment in the SE with bonuses such as a leather-wrapped shift knob and steering wheel, power lift gate, leather upholstery, the SYNC® 3 tech interface, rear parking sensors, and power-adjustable side mirrors with heating. The Titanium trim comes with all SEL features plus extras including xenon headlights, remote start, keyless entry and ignition, a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that gets 245 horsepower and 275 lb.-ft. of torque.


The 2018 Ford Escape has great overall comfort. It is a nice ride and one of the better-handling crossovers in the segment. The seats inside are comfortable as well, especially with the heating that is optional on some trim levels. The 2018 Ford Escape, available now at a Rockford, IL Ford dealership near you, is a fantastic purchase.
