This car is for you if: You're into the Lebanese famous compact-crossover segment (like the Honda CR-V, Kia Sportage, Nissan X-trail) and are looking for some extra punch! The Escape offers a choice of 2 engines and front or all-wheel-drive which is nice. It's also done well in terms of steering and handling and its looks are modern. On the downside, the Escape can be a bit fuel-thirsty. A major deal-breaker can be the price, since it's priced higher than our road famous crossovers.

Trim/Price differences:

  • S Package | 2WD | 4 Cyl 2.5L | 175HP ($31,600)
  • SE Package | 4WD | 4 Cyl 2.0L Turbo | 240HP ($40,950)

Specs Per trim: Click image below for our new spec sheet!

Verdict: The Escape is Ford's offering in a very competitive segment with a wide range of offerings. It's more expensive than a Nissan X-trail, a Kia Sportage or a Hyundai Tucson. These constitute the most selling crossovers in this segment and are reputable for their decent quality. However, the Escape in its fully loaded trim is still less expensive than a Mazda CX-5 or a Jeep Cherokee and offers one of the most powerful engines in this category.

The SE is $9,350 more expensive than the S package, while offering a much more powerful engine (65 more HP) and a 4-wheel-drive setup. If you're looking for above average power, the SE package can be the one for you. With this trim, you also get:

  • ​Keyless entry
  • Rear A/C ducts
  • A touchscreen
  • Panoramic sunroof
  • Power tailgate
  • Rear view camera
  • Rear parking sensors

Which trim you go for will depend on your needs, but keep in mind that cars depreciate, and a base model will always retain its value better than a specced up and more costly version. This crossover actually sells very well in the US, but in Lebanon, not very much so. Do you think it has what it takes to shine? Let us know, and compare it with the other offerings below!
