The Ford Escape soon grew in popularity after being introduced secondary to the vehicle's ease of handling and fuel economy. But the SUV was also designed to be capable. Ford offers potential owners with the option of choosing an Escape with the powertrain that suits their needs.

Base models come with a 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine that achieves up to 180 horsepower. The engine pairs with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The powertrain has an estimated EPA rating of 27mpg/33mpg.

A 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine is another option. The motor delivers up to 250 horsepower and comes with an eight-speed select shift transmission. In this way, drivers may choose an automatic transmission or enjoy the feel of a manual. When equipped with the more powerful engine, the Escape achieves 23mpg/31mpg.
