The 2015 Ford Escape seats five and comes with either standard front-wheel drive or optional all-wheel drive. A 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and six-speed automatic transmission are standard. A turbocharged 1.6-liter four cylinder engine or turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine are available. There are three trim levels: S, SE and Titanium. 

The Escape was last redesigned for the 2013 model year and sees few changes for 2015. As a result, this overview uses applicable research and reviews from the 2013 to 2015 model years. It has since added some leg room is has all around more space.

The Ford Escape comes standard with a four-cylinder engine that test drivers report delivers adequate power. However, most say that models fitted with either of the two available turbocharged four-cylinder engines have more spirited acceleration. They're especially pleased with the larger turbocharged engine, noting that it has ample power for climbing hills with ease. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard. 

Fuel economy is up to an EPA-estimated 23/32 mpg city/highway, and while the 2015 Escape's overall fuel economy numbers are on par for the class, rivals like the Mazda CX-5 and Subaru Forester use a bit less fuel. Reviewers say that the Escape rides comfortably and they are delighted with its nimble handling and responsive steering. As a result, some critics say that it is one of the most fun-to-drive SUVs in the segment.

Auto journalists are pleased with the 2015 Ford Escape's first-rate cabin materials and handsome interior design. Most agree that the five-seat Escape is comfortable up front and that there is plenty of rear-seat legroom. The Escape has a competitive amount of cargo space for the class, and reviewers find the available hands-free power liftgate helpful for opening the hatch when your hands are full.

A rearview camera and Ford's SYNC voice command system with Bluetooth and a USB port are standard. A panoramic sunroof, parallel park assist, a 10-speaker Sony audio system, the MyFord Touch infotainment system, navigation and front and rear parking sensors are available. Some test drivers note that the MyFord Touch system is straightforward, but others mention its touch controls could be more responsive. Several praise the rich sound quality of the available Sony stereo system.

CarWarriors thinks this is a great buy for the family and to keep everyone safe with the rugged Ford Escape. on a scale of one through ten we give the Escape a 9!
