The design of the new 2019 Ford Escape is very interesting. However, this compact crossover sometimes looks like a hatchback. While edition for 2018 season is still fresh in the market, designers and engineers are fixing all existing problems. The latest vehicle had excellent cargo area and tech features. Also, acceleration and handling were praised. On the other hand, users don’t like its fuel economy. Comfort is questionable since Ford is well-known for its gentle seats. Also, dashboard on the new 2018 Escape is too big, and downsizing is one of the main things to do for 2019.
2019 Ford Escape engine
The 2019 Ford Escape will continue to use a 2.5-l 4-cylinder drivetrain as the main unit. This drivetrain is capable to deliver 170 horse and 170 lb-ft of torque. However, the engine consumes too much fuel, so 2019 Escape needs an alternative. It is a 1.5-l turbocharged 4-cylinder unit. It can deliver a similar amount of power and torque as 2.5-l mill. But, its fuel economy is much better. Nevertheless, the smaller displacement has its downside, and it is noisy sound. A 2.5-l drivetrain works smoothly and quietly.
2019 Ford Escape safety
Safety of the Ford Escape is one of its highlights. This vehicle receives top marks in crash tests. So, the overall 5-star rating is gained from the 5-star mark for frontal crash, and 4-star score for rollover resistance. For upcoming 2019 Ford Escape, we expect even better marks. There is still room for improvements, and we are sure designer will do their maximum effort to make a crossover safer.
2019 Ford Escape release date and price
The 2019 Ford Escape is not coming out anytime soon. The 2018 year model is still fresh in the market, and it has to prove itself. When demand for it starts to slow down, we can expect the 2019 year model to appear. However, with minor updates, Ford is not going to rush with it. The new Escape is not coming in the mid-year months. Its price will remain the same. Also, we expect from the company to keep existing trim levels. So, the SUV will have a starting price around $24,000.
