Ford Escape 2018

The 2018 Ford Escape range of configurations is currently priced from $19,990. Our most recent review of the 2018 Ford Escape resulted in a score of 7 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Family reviewer Nedahl Stelio had this to say at the time: The Ford Escape is a neat family SUV. It’s one of those cars that does the job and while not the most flashy mobile on the road, it's good value for money. At this price, you’ll be in a five seater that comfortably fits your family and is in it for the long haul.

This is what Nedahl Stelio liked most about this particular version of the Ford Escape: Fuel efficient, Spacious cabin and boot, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto

The 2018 Ford Escape carries a braked towing capacity of up to 1500 Kg, but check to ensure this applies to the configuration you're considering.

Stand in front of the middle of the bonnet and lift the bonnet panel while pulling the secondary catch lever, which is near the middle of the Escape, mounted on the radiator top panel to the left of the middle.
