If you're considering this crossover SUV, you'll want to learn more about it first, which is why we at Peacock Ford are here with this car review. Read up on the 2019 Escape and decide if its features and capabilities are what you need in your next new ride!

2019 Escape: Interior Dimensions

You can pack plenty of people or cargo into the Escape despite its compact size. Both rows of seats easily accommodate adults, too, so your passengers will have room to stretch their legs, no matter where they sit. Let's look closer at the specs:


First Row

Second Row

Headroom (inches)



Legroom (inches)



Cargo Space Behind (cubic feet)



The 60/40 split rear seats are standard on every trim level, so you mix and match people and cargo room to get the exact ratio you need. For items you'll need during the ride, the Escape offers a convenient media bin in the center console, which is spacious enough for quite a few smaller items.

Performance Specs: Lots of Thrills

With three engines to choose from for powering the Ford Escape, you have a wealth of options in front of you. Each provides plenty of get-up-and-go, so it's just a matter of how potent you want that acceleration to be. The engines offered include:

  • 2.5L 4-Cylinder: 168 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque
  • 1.5L EcoBoost® 4-Cylinder: 179 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque
  • 2.0L EcoBoost® 4-Cylinder: 245 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque

When equipped with the Class II Trailer Tow Package, the 2.0L EcoBoost® can tow up to 3,500 pounds. If you need to tow a couple of jet skis out to the Florida coast, this turbocharged turbine will accommodate.

You'll have lots of intelligent features to assist with towing, such as AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™, to keep you in control when wheelslip, understeer, oversteer, or roll motion occurs.

Technology for Your Connectivity

The 2019 Escape offers an incredibly intuitive and user-friendly infotainment system in the form of SYNC® 3. Whether you're looking for directions to your destination, access to your personal music library, or even assistance from Alexa, this system has you covered.

You can access the Ford+Alexa app via SYNC® 3 AppLink®, which will bring the capacities of Amazon Alexa from your home to the road. Use voice navigation, traffic information, more than 50,000 skills, or Amazon Prime shopping whenever you need to!

The SYNC® 3 system includes Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ as well, so it's easy to pair your phone with the touchscreen and use your favorite apps at any point along your journey.
