Explore All That a Used Ford Escape Has to Offer You
If you’re looking for older Ford Escape generations at used car dealers, the second and third generation Escape is the way to go. While the second generation Escape lasted from 2008 to 2012, the third generation started in 2013 and is active today. The second generation offers a variety of options, including a hybrid vehicle, but the third generation is not available in the hybrid. Still, the third generation is worth looking at for its excellent performance and advanced technology.
Second Generation Ford Escape
In this generation, the Escape Hybrid is one of the most sought after and rare vehicles on the used market because it was only manufactured for four years. It features a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine along with two battery-powered electric motors. A front-wheel drive system is standard, but all-wheel drive is available, which adds a third electric motor to the mix. With a continuously variable transmission, the Escape Hybrid has an outstanding fuel efficiency at 34 mpg city and 31 mpg highway (32 mpg combined).
In terms of Ford’s trim levels for the Escape, it is available in two different trims: the base model and the Limited trim. The base model comes standard with 16-inch alloy wheels, power-adjustable driver’s seat, cruise control, full power accessories, dual-zone climate control, a four-speaker stereo, and a CD player with MP3 compatibility.
Meanwhile, the Limited trim level adds premium features, such as chrome exterior accents, rear park assist, keypad lock entry, and an upgraded Infotainment System, called Sync. It enhances the driving experience with heated leather seats, a sunroof, and a 6-disk CD changer.
When you’re looking at used Ford Escapes for sale, the 2011 Ford Escape Hybrid is recommended because it combines a low price with the newest features. For example, it will have blind-spot mirrors integrated into the side mirrors, a rearview camera, and an automatic parallel parking system.
Third Generation Ford Escape
The third-generation Ford Escape was completely redesigned and comes in four trim levels. On the 2013 models, the base trim — the S — includes 17-inch steel wheels, MyKey technology, cruise control, and full power accessories. A level up, the SE offers upgrades like alloy wheels, automatic headlights, the Sync Infotainment System, a satellite radio, and steering-wheel-mounted controls. Next, the SEL is enhanced with heated side mirrors, dual-zone climate control, heated leather seats, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. Finally, the top trim level, the Titanium, features 19-inch wheels, remote start technology, keyless ignition start and entry, and a Sony stereo; some models have an available panoramic sunroof and navigation system.
In 2015, the Escape models were updated with newer technology, such as a standard Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, as well as a 110-volt power outlet and a hands-free liftgate on the Titanium trim. Likewise, the 2016 lineup included several changes to the vehicle’s features, like the Sync3 Infotainment Interface. The 2017, 2018 and 2019 models, however, will offer you the most advanced technology, such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. If you’re looking for a modern, almost-new Ford Escape, a model from these lineups will be your best option.
