Under the Escape's Hood

For 2017, the choices at powertrain are great. It starts with the S model which is the entry level edition. This engine is a 2.5-liter which has 4 cylinders, produces 168 horsepower and is connected to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The upper levels of trim are the SE and Titanium and come with the option of new engines that are complete with EcoBoost. These engines are turbocharged and use direct injection design. Engine start/stop technology comes on both choices which shuts the engine down when the vehicle is at a standstill. This process has been proven to help retain fuel over the normal operation of the vehicle. The engine details are the following: a standard engine is a 4 cylinder 1.5-liter EcoBoost which churns out 180 horsepower while the buy up is a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine which gets 245 horsepower. The Escape also has intelligent 4 wheel-drive which definitely comes in handy, especially in variable weather conditions. The average American spends 16 minutes every day in traffic which wastes 3.8 billion gallons of fuel each day. Start/stop technology helps fix this problem.
