Buy or Lease the New 2016 Ford Escape near Portland, ME
It's time to pack the family up and head out on an adventure, but you can't help fretting about the trip. How are you supposed to squeeze everyone and everything you'll need into one vehicle? Is it possible to do so while still keeping everyone comfortable? There's no way a vehicle can do all that without becoming an over-encumbered gas guzzler, right? Wrong! With its exceptional efficiency, extraordinary space and excellent amount of features, the all-new 2016 Ford Escape is the perfect can-do compact SUV for any occasion.
At the heart of the Ford Escape lies your choice of three efficient engines. Go with the standard 2.5-liter Duratec and you'll return a very healthy 31 highway mpg. Opt for a higher trim and the 1.6-liter EcoBoost I-4 engine, and you'll have 178 horsepower and up to 32 highway mpg to work with. If you're the type who wants a little more muscle alongside that fantastic fuel economy, there's an option for you, too. The 2.0-liter EcoBoost powerplant nets 240 horsepower while still returning up to 30 highway mpg in FWD models. Each pairs with a 6-speed SelectShift automatic transmission, giving you an engaging ride. Between its powertrain choices and aerodynamic design, you're in for one smooth, eco-friendly ride in the new Escape.
While that's all well and good, the cabin is where you and your passengers will spend the bulk of your drives, and it's essential that you enjoy your time in it. With the 60/40 split rear seat folded down, you'll have 67.8 cubic feet of cargo volume to work with for all the packages and parcels you'll need. That space is flexible though, as keeping that seat up will still net you 34.3 cubic feet of space. Plus, you can opt to include an adjustable load floor for additional storage space. As you sink into the available leather seating, you'll note that you're also surrounded by a host of modern technology. The brand-new SYNC 3 infotainment system features more advanced software than ever before and an easy-to-use interface that displays phone, audio and optional navigation controls. For seamless smartphone integration with your Apple iPhone, you can also add Siri Eyes Free.
