New 2018 Ford Escape near Louisville, KY

What Makes the 2018 Ford Escape a Good Choice for Radcliff, KY Drivers?

The versatility of the 2018 Ford Escape is easy to see at even just a glance; this compact crossover SUV is a bit larger than a car to provide you with increased interior space and comforts while also being a relatively small and nimble vehicle to make driving on the highway as easy and carefree as driving through busy city streets. Whether you're just cruising around Radcliff, KY or you're making a trip across the country, you'll be ready for everything.

What's New on the Ford Escape for 2018?

While it saw only minor changes for the 2018 model year, Ford has kept the Escape fresh, with a restyle of the Escape's exterior and improved interior amenities just last year. There were also updates to this SUV's engine lineup last year, and technology like Android Auto and Apple CarPlay was integrated. Recent safety and driver assistance features are also available.

Performance and Efficiency

While other small crossovers might feel underpowered, the 2018 Escape has your excitement in mind. You'll find a choice of three engines, including a 2.5-liter I4, a 1.5-liter EcoBoost, or a powerful 2.0-liter EcoBoost, and the latter of those provides you with an explosive 245 horsepower to make even short trips around Fort Knox a thrilling affair. Add to this the Escape's ability to tow up to a maximum of 3,500 pounds and you'll be the hero of daily carpooling and weekend camping trips. Add on the capability of the available Intelligent 4WD System and no obstacle will be able to slow you down.

Style and Comfort

The 2018 Escape will get you in the center spotlight whether you're driving around Elizabethtown or Bardstown or any town, really; the four trim levels - S, SE, SEL, and Titanium - provide you with a number of options for features and functions, but every one of them is as handsomely styled as the last.

Climb inside the cabin and find a spacious interior with plenty of room for five adults to be seated comfortably. And even with those comfortably-seated passengers, you have cargo space for luggage or groceries.

In the back, there's a 34 cubic-foot cargo area that can be expanded up to 68 cubic feet with the rear 60/40 split seats folded down. Even better, the Hands-Free Foot-Activated Liftgate in the back makes it all the easier to get to your items, even if your hands are full.

Convenience and Safety

The technologies in the 2018 Escape will make your time cruising around Shepherdsville feel less like errands and more like a little adventure. Up front, you'll find the available convenience of the SYNC 3 infotainment system that allows you to use voice commands so you can keep your hands on the wheel and eyes on the road; the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support only sweetens the deal. It's even a piece of cake to get in and start driving thanks to Intelligent Access with Push-Button Start, and the confident safety of features like a standard rearview camera and the Reverse Sensing System will help with even the trickiest Louisville parking situations.
