The crossover market proves crowded - with dozens of new platforms introduced each year. Every brand shoves these big-wheeled options onto the highway, hoping to secure strong sales. Rarely, however, is a thought spared for speed. Cumbersome accelerations define the miles.
The 2018 Escape is the exception to the slow rule.
According to Car and Driver, the 2018 Escape Titanium offers peppy performance - with its 2.0L inline-four engine allowing Seattle families to indulge in full-throttle experiences. After extensively testing this platform (pitting its six-speed automatic transmission and Intelligent AWD against a brutal track), critics gleaned three very crucial stats:
0 to 60: 7.1 seconds.
50 to 70: 5.1 seconds.
Quarter-Mile Speed: 86 MPH
The new Escape blazed down the pavement, leaving all competitors (save for the Kia Sportage SX, which was a mere fraction quicker) behind. This SUV delivered a seamless ride, utilizing its turbocharged technology to maximum effect. It yielded 245 HP and 275 lb.-ft of torque; and its massive body (178-inches long, 72-inches wide) proved no challenge for the four-cylinder design.
