Ford Escape
Price: Starting at $23,100 (2016 model)
The Ford Escape is one of the best-selling models in the competitive compact crossover segment, and for 2015 was the second-best-selling model for Ford behind the F-Series. The redesigned 2017 Escape debuted at the Los Angeles Auto Show last November and is scheduled to go on sale in Spring 2016. The new Escape takes on the look of the larger Ford Edge and will offer two new engines; a 1.5-liter EcoBoost and a 2.0-liter twin-scroll turbocharged EcoBoost — both with Auto Start/Stop technology. New driver assist technology includes adaptive cruise control with collision warning and brake support, a lane-keeping system and Enhanced Active Park Assist. SYNC Connect will allow drivers to use a smartphone app to remote start, lock doors and check fuel level.
