Ford Escape Dimensions

Inside the 2018 Ford Escape, you'll find plenty of room for you and your passengers. Enjoy extra space up front with 39.9 inches of headroom and 43.1 inches of legroom, so you can relax every time you drive. Your rear passengers won't be complaining about space since they can enjoy 39 inches of headroom and 37.3 inches of legroom.

If you're going to be hauling cargo instead of passengers, the Escape can abide. Fold the seats down, and you can take advantage of 68 cubic feet of cargo space. Even with a full crew inside, you still get an impressive 34 cubic feet of extra space.

Ford Escape Performance

Having all that extra space won't mean much if the 2018 Ford Escape can't get you to where you need to go. Fortunately, you have the option between three strong engines to power through the streets. At the base model, you can enjoy a 2.5L 4-cyliinder engine, which produces 168 horsepower. In every other trim level, you get one of two turbo engines: a 1.5L EcoBoost® engine, or a 2.0L EcoBoost® engine. The 1.5L engine generates 179 horsepower, while the 2.0L engine deliver`s an incredible 245 horsepower.

With that much power, you can take a little extra with you on your adventures. On the Titanium models, you have a 3,500-towing capacity. Even on the base model, you can still tow up to 1,500 pounds. The Ford Escape also features Trailer Sway Control, which will automatically apply brakes and reduce throttle, if it detects that you're losing control of the trailer.
