2019 Ford Escape

Ford has a history of producing exemplary vehicles built to last — and the 2019 Ford Escape is no exception. When it comes to being a great value, functional, and stylish compact SUV, the 2019 Ford Escape isn’t letting anybody down.

Let’s look at five reasons why the 2019 Ford Escape is turning heads, and why you should experience it for yourself with a test drive at Zeck Ford dealership in Leavenworth.

Why The Escape Is So Popular

1. Maximum Space and Comfort

Why do people like SUVs so much? Most people will tell you one of the greatest benefits of owning one is for the spaciousness and ability to sling cargo with ease.

The 2019 Ford Escape is popular because it’s a practical car with interior spaciousness. With both rear seats fully folded, the flat surface including the trunk gives a massive 68 cubic feet of total cargo space. You can also choose to put down just one or two seats at a time.

Even with the rear seats up, the trunk allows for 34 cubic feet of cargo space. There are also rack rails on the roof of the SUV for items like bikes, luggage, and canoes. Rear seat passengers have 37 inches of legroom, so if you have longer legs this is a comfortable SUV to ride in. On top of that, an ergonomic steering wheel and comfortable chairs make long distance drives more than tolerable.

2. Exceptional Price

When you think of SUVs in Kansas City, you might think of something that’s in the $30k or $40k range — and for most SUVs, you’d be right. But the 2019 Ford Escape comes at an amazing base price of around $24k, and fits a lot of features into that tidy price package too.

If you want to find a cheaper deal than that, we can offer new 2019 Ford Escapes at an exceptionally low price. We offer Escapes at around $20k, allowing you to save as much as almost $5,000 compared to buying from other Ford dealerships. That’s exceptional value for a great SUV. We also carry a wide range of pre-owned Ford Escapes so you can save even more.

3. It’s Fun to Drive

SUVs have historically had a bit of a reputation for being slow and lumbering vehicles. Recently though Ford has remade and redefined what an SUV should be. With the lively engine options offered by Ford, you’ll get some serious power out of this SUV. Want to see for yourself? Zeck Ford offer test drives and we can discuss with you the specifications for a deeper look at what the 2019 Escape has to offer.

Under the hood, there are a variety of options, including a 2.5L I-4 with intake variable cam design, a 1.5L turbocharged EcoBoost engine, and a 2.0L twin-scroll EcoBoost with 245 horsepower. Some variants of the 2019 Escape allow you to tow up to 3,500 pounds too — that’s a lot of power wrapped in a beautiful package.

4. Top-End Tech

If there’s one thing the Escape doesn’t hold back on, it’s a wide array of state of the art SUV technologies. From driver assistance to entertainment, it has it all. Here’s a list of the best that Ford offers in its Escapes:

  • Driver-activated front rain-sensing windshield wipers
  • Blind Spot Information System — a cross traffic alert system that allows you to see your blind spots
  • Lane-keeping Systems — to allow you to effortlessly keep in your lane
  • Adaptive cruise control with forward collision warning and auto braking
  • Auto high-beam headlamps — to save you from constantly switching
  • AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control
  • SiriusXM Satellite Radio and Navigation — excellent sound quality systems, with a large screen center to the driver’s seat. 3D navigation makes it easy to get from A to B easy, and the system can be set up as a Wi-Fi hotspot.
  • Standard Rear-View Camera and a Reverse Sensing System

Safety is always a priority when it comes to buying a new vehicle, which is why Ford doesn’t cut corners when it comes to safety. They give you the best that the market has to offer at an affordable price, which includes the most rigorously tested designs, safety systems, and the best build materials. Ford does all this without sacrificing any of the fun too — the Escape handles corners beautifully and comfortably, with enough horsepower to please most drivers.

On top of that, the intelligent 4WD system monitors traction and road conditions to make your drive safer and easier. Wintry roads and muddy hills aren’t much of a challenge for this SUV, opening the door to many adventures.

5. It’s Family Friendly

SUVs like the 2019 Ford Escape are often a great choice for people who have families or live/travel actively. They’re comfortable, spacious and combine the functionality of an everyday car with that of an off-roader. As a family vehicle, the Escape will keep your family safe and give them plenty of room to sit comfortably and happily as you go on road trips together. As an adventure vehicle, off-road control systems and four-wheel drive will allow you to go further up those hills and across those fields better than any normal car could.

If it’s hard to see why the 2019 Escape is so popular, don’t take our word for it! Take the words of thousands of reviewers and happy customers.
