The Ford Escape is getting even better for 2023. Ford has updated its popular SUV for the new year, adding sharper styling, exciting new models, and some of the latest technology offered by the Blue Oval. The result is the best Ford Escape yet, and an SUV you must try if you're looking to upgrade to a new ride.

New models for 2023

Ford has revamped the Escape lineup, offering more value from top to bottom. New for 2023 is the Escape Active™, a well-equipped model that adds key features like dual-zone electronic automatic temperature control and a power liftgate that makes it easier to access the cargo area.

Also joining the Escape lineup is a trio of new ST-Line models. The 2023 Ford Escape ST-Line, ST-Line Select, and ST-Line Elite all offer up a more aggressive, athletic style with a unique grille and spoiler on the outside and interior features like a flat-bottom steering wheel. ST-Line Elite models get even more unique features, including an LED light bar that runs the length of the front fascia between the headlamps and larger 19-inch Machine-Faced Ebony-Painted aluminum wheels.

Robust, balanced performance

The 2023 Ford Escape retains one of the most versatile under-the-hood offerings in the segment, offering three engines and four powertrains. If you're looking for an option that serves up the most thrills, try the 2.0-liter EcoBoost®, which is standard for the Platinum and available for the ST-Line Select and ST-Line Elite. This 250-horsepower engine comes with Intelligent All-Wheel Drive, giving the Escape better control in inclement weather and on tougher terrain.

For the best in fuel economy, the Escape Hybrid and Escape Plug-In Hybrid both lean on a smooth, efficient 2.5-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder. Both options return great gas mileage in the city and on the highway, and the Escape Plug-In Hybrid even allows you to travel short distances using only electric power.

Spacious and stylish

A big part of what makes the Escape a preferred choice for families in West Virginia and across America is what it offers on the inside. The Escape is spacious and accommodating, offering seating for up to five and a smart sliding second row that provides up to 40.7 inches of second-row legroom. This makes it a great option for taking the kids to school, running your co-workers to lunch, or taking a well-deserved weekend with your best pals.

Flexibility is crucial for SUVs, and the Escape is one of the most versatile options in the Ford lineup. Fold the rear seats flat, and you'll have up to 65.4 cubic feet of storage space - perfect for longer and bulkier items you picked up from the home goods store.

A smarter choice

Ford continues to roll out new and exciting features across its lineup, and the 2023 Escape benefits with several new tech upgrades. One of the coolest is the addition of SYNC® 4, one of the smartest and most intuitive infotainment platforms ever built. SYNC® 4 includes wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ and offers upgrades like Alexa Built-In and Enhanced Voice Recognition.

The 2023 Ford Escape also shines as one of the safest SUVs in its segment thanks to Ford Co-Pilot360™ Technology. Features like Blind Spot Information System with Rear Cross-Traffic Braking and Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking help you drive with absolute confidence, and upgrades like Active Park Assist 2.0 even take the hassle out of nabbing that prime parking space.
