2014 Ford Escape first impressions are great
By johnjrs3 on


2014 Ford Escape Titanium 4dr SUV AWD (1.6L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Just bought 2014 Escape Titanium 2.0 liter AWD
First 150 miles:
1. Top notch build quality--interior on par with the low end BMW small SUV, quiet
2. European drive-great agility fun to drive
3. Mileage is fine--I am getting 23.5 mpg in mixed driving on a lot of hills--pretty much as expected-no long highway trip yet
4. MyTouch--with all due respect to consumer reports, it was easy to master in 15 minutes and works really well. Has a lot of features that are very convenient and useful. I just don't get all the negative hype about this. Perhaps it is due to non computer savvy folk?

Here is my 60,000 mile update!
Yes 60,000 in two years

Absolutely no repairs
Now getting 26 mpg in mixed country hi way driving
No rattles or squeaks
My touch has always worked without problems
Drives tightly and sporty a pleasure to drive
I have liked this car so much that
I've ordered a 2017 escape

Couldn't agree with you more, MyFord Touch works very well. Don't understand all the negative hype. I have a 2012 Focus, and I have to say it was VERY glitchy initially, but with software update about a year ago, it works great. Am considering an Escape in 2015.
