Responsive, nimble and more than capable of tackling tough road conditions - almost nothing is off limits to the Escape. A choice of cutting-edge EcoBoost engines are designed so you'll spend more time exploring and less time at the fuel pump. Why waste fuel at idle? Escape knows when you've stopped at lights or stuck in traffic and shuts down the engine automatically. When you're ready to drive again, just press the accelerator and the engine restarts. For greater control in challenging conditions, the intelligent All-Wheel Drive system is designed to monitor Escape's performance and adjusts the delivery of torque to each wheel every 16 milliseconds. When it comes to fuel efficiency, a great engine is just the beginning. Escape features an Active Grille Shutter which closes to reduce aerodynamic drag and opens to help cool the engine when required so you save even more on fuel. Similar to gear shifters used by racing drivers, Escape's Paddle Shifters allow you to make smooth and effortless gear changes without taking your hands off the wheel or using a clutch.
