2018 Ford Escape's Mechanical

The engine block in the 2018 Ford Escape does more than just make the wheels turn.

Additional motorized features include a power moonroof, power front seats, and even a motorized tailgate that's activated simply by waving your foot below it.

2018 Ford Escape's Powertrain

With a compact body aimed at good fuel economy, it only stands to reason that Ford equipped its Escapes with efficient engines that still deliver capable power.

The lineup begins with a 2.5 liter block that cranks out 168 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque while offering 21 mpg city and 29 mpg highway. Throwing in all-wheel drive, an option for all Escape models, slightly increases fuel usage. More power doesn't require a bigger engine when you step up to the 1.5 liter turbocharged block that generates 179 horses and 177 lb-ft of torque. Expect 23 mpg city and 30 mpg highway from this Maquoketa Ford dealer offering. Top performance among these Ford Escape specials comes from the turbocharged 2 liter powerplant that spawns 245 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque. In standard two-wheel drive mode, count on 21 mpg city and 28 mpg highway. In all models, power is relayed through a 6-speed automatic transmission. With the two turbocharged engines, the transmission includes paddle shifters to give you more control.
