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?

Best Features

Interior build quality and driving that feels like a high end european car for much less money

Worst Features

Would love to see a hybrid version in the future

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.
