Feeling uninspired In the used car market? That’s totally normal. For a vehicle to stand out, you need to hear some persuasive evidence. You want to feel compelled to spend your hard-earned dollars on a vehicle instead of just settling for what seems ok.
A 2016 Ford Escape makes a very compelling argument. This model really has it all; versatile power, great fuel economy, slick design, cutting-edge technology, and more than enough space for your growing family.
Let’s take a deeper look at the top 5 reasons you should purchase a pre-owned 2016 Ford Escape:
1. Versatile Performance and Power
With three trim levels available, the 2016 Escape has an option for everyone. Base model Escape S comes with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with an output of 168 horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque. This model is only offered with FWD, which gives it a fuel economy boost for drivers who don’t need to power of a 4x4. The SE trim arrives standard with a turbocharged 1.6-liter four cylinder engine that reaches 178 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. This model takes advantage for AWD to climb the toughest hills and conquer all seasonal weather conditions. Topping the list is the Escape Titanium with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four cylinder engine that powers out a noticeable 240hp and 270 lb-ft of torque. AWD makes this the least efficient on gas, but the power is well worth it for many drivers.
2. Fantastic Fuel Economy
The Escape has fuel economy ratings that look closer to what you would expect to read on a sedan. Base model EPA-estimation comes in with 22 city/31 highway mpg. SE models receive an EPA-estimated 23 city/32 highway. Titanium trim with AWD still receives an impressive rating of 21 city/28 highway.
3. Elegant Design
Throughout the last decade, the Escape has always been ahead of the pack when it comes to design. This version takes the top spot on the eye-test score, leaving behind any notion of a boxy truck-like exterior to deliver an exciting new shape. Dynamic, contoured edges atop a slightly smaller, more wagon-like design give city drivers a vehicle that can impress even the most critical eye.
4. New-Age Technology
Ford didn’t pass up any opportunity to load this vehicle with cutting-edge tech. Some of the features available include air conditioning; auxiliary jack; power windows; satellite radio; a 10-way power driver's seat; keypad entry; Bluetooth-driven SYNC controller; a 4.0-inch color screen; remote start; hands-free liftgate; active park assist; a towing package; HID headlights, blind-spot monitors; park assist; and rain-sensing wipers.
5. Impressive Cargo Capacity
This vehicle has more than enough capacity for passengers and their cargo. With all seats in place, the 2016 Escape retains 34.3 cubic feet of cargo room for you to load with groceries, camping supplies, and more. When the seats are folded down, that number skyrockets to a massive 74.4 cubic feet.
