Have you looked at all the different vehicles out there roaming the streets these days? Chances are good that you have seen more than a few crossovers, those remarkable SUVs that offer a happy medium between the power and cargo capacity of a full-size SUV and the fuel efficiency and maneuverability of a smaller sedan or coupe. These models are a great fit for families and single drivers alike, and although they can be bigger and more powerful than some cars, they still offer a lot in the way of fuel efficiency to keep your wallet from flipping out over constant trips to the fuel pump. One of these popular crossover models is the Ford Escape, which remains an efficient option for the new model year. What is the fuel economy of each 2018 Ford Escape trim? Let’s break down the numbers.
Fuel efficiency numbers by model
The 2018 Ford Escape is available in four different trims: S, SE, SEL, and Titanium. Each one offers its own unique take on the Escape name, but efficiency is the name of the game across the entire lineup. Take a look at the fuel efficiency numbers by trim level.
2018 Escape S | 11.1 City / 8.1 Hwy L/100km
2018 Escape SE | 10.2 City / 7.8 Hwy L/100km
2018 Escape SEL | 10.2 City / 7.8 Hwy L/100km
2018 Escape Titanium | 11.5 City / 8.8 Hwy L/100km
Power that complements efficiency
Clearly, with fuel efficiency numbers like that, it must mean every Escape is lacking in power, right? That is not the case. Three engine options are available across the Escape lineup. The 2.5L I-4 engine on the S model boasts 165 horsepower. The SE and SEL model offer up a 1.5L EcoBoost engine capable of doling out 179 horsepower. Finally, the Titanium model is equipped with the 2.0L EcoBoost engine that delivers a mighty 245 horsepower.
