This year's model is for many a logical continuation of the 2018 Ford Escape. We'll tell you that the 2019 Escape has undergone some eye-popping changes. Indeed, its appearance is more dynamic and more aesthetic with, among other things, its redesigned grille with chrome contours giving it an alluring look. It's not for nothing that the Escape has long served as a benchmark for the competition. Its sales totaled nearly 48,000 vehicles in 2018, up 2.6 percent from the previous year.

Its dynamic styling and sophisticated appearance are also reflected in the vehicle's interior. Ford's trademark actually lies in its spacious cabin with an overall design that is sure to turn heads. With its 5-door, 5-seat layout, ergonomic seats as well as cutting-edge accessories, such as SYNC, MyFord Touch or the Ford Pass app; we are able to see the American manufacturer's efforts in terms of technology. In addition, the 2019 Escape has an optional 180o front camera that will help you perform a smooth parking maneuver in smaller areas. A pre-collision assist system with pedestrian detection gives you extra protection to reduce the risk of a head-on crash. Ford technology goes even further. The 2019 Escape comes with optional invasive steering assist allowing you to maneuver more easily in traffic. Other components such as side and rear obstacle warning, lane departure assist, adaptive cruise control, adaptive headlights, rear parking sonar, rearview camera and more are among the vehicle's active safety features.

Additionally, the 2019 Ford Escape is available in either two (Escape S) or four-wheel drive (SE, SEL, Titanium), depending on your choice. A 1.5-liter DOHC turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with 179 horsepower in the SE trim, 4-cylinder, 2.5-liter DOHC with 168 horsepower in the S trim, and 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter DOHC turbo with 245 horsepower in the SEL and Titanium trim. In all cases, the gearbox is a 6-speed automatic with manual mode.

This overview would not be complete if we omitted to say a few words about connectivity and multimedia. The Escape includes Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, USB, voice recognition, SYNC3 and Internet navigation.
