At Van Isle Ford, we have people visit all the time to check out the 2019 Ford Escape. This small SUV has proven itself to be quite reliable, durable, and capable, making it popular with Canadians. The problem is there are four 2019 Ford Escape models, and that can leave shoppers wondering which they should choose.
We’ve put together a helpful overview of all four models, so you can get a better idea of which is a good fit. Because we are your Ford dealer in Port Alberni, BC, we can guide you through the selection process if you have any further questions.
Even though it’s the base model, the Ford Escape S comes with a nice array of standard features, plus a design which will turn heads. You won’t feel like this SUV is missing anything necessary, and it even comes with some nice amenities.
Perfect for winter weather, a heated wiper park comes standard on this model. That means the area of the windshield where the wipers rest while not in use heats up rapidly. If you’ve been parked outside and the wiper blades freeze to the glass, this feature will prevent damage and help to keep your view clear as soon as you start driving. A rear wiper is also included.
The standard 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine runs efficiently, thanks to intake variable cam timing. It also puts 168 horsepower at your command, so you never feel strained to reach a destination.
A number of upgrades come with the Ford Escape SE, building on the standard equipment for the S. One of the biggest additions is a 1.5-litre EcoBoost engine. It uses turbocharging and direct fuel injection to improve fuel efficiency while also boosting output, so you enjoy the best of both. What’s more, standard auto start-stop technology cuts down further on fuel consumption and emissions in the city.
The exterior has a dressier appearance, thanks to details like 17-inch Sparkle Silver painted aluminum wheels. You can also enjoy a WiFi hotspot in and around the vehicle.
Even more standard equipment comes on the Ford Escape SEL, making for a luxurious and helpful SUV.
One is dual-zone electronic automatic temperature control. You and your front passenger can set individual temperature preferences, which is great if one likes it cooler or warmer than the other. Halogen projector-beam headlights are standard as well, illuminating the pathway ahead of the vehicle with wonderful clarity. Signature LED lighting help the SUV stand out better in the daytime so other drivers see it without problem.
The available reverse sensing system makes backing into a spot less dangerous. It indicates when you’re approaching an obstacle using beeps, which increase as the rear bumper draws closer to that object.
Of course, the most luxurious features are reserved for the Ford Escape Titanium. Among the equipment are 19-inch bright-machined aluminum wheels, voice-activated navigation with SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link, plus the powerful 2.0-litre EcoBoost engine.
