City Driving Tips for San Diego, CA

Ford City Driving

Some days your life is a comedy. Others, it’s nothing but drama. You’ve seen this flick before. You can recite the dialogue from memory. If you can’t change the channel on life, you can at least flip the script in a 2018 Ford Escape from Kearny Pearson Ford.

2018 Ford Escape Details

After a substantial redesign last year, the 2018 Ford Escape arrives in San Diego looking a lot like the model it’s replacing. That isn’t a bad thing, since the new look also brought a bit more luxury.

The S, SE, and Titanium all make repeat appearances. There’s a new SEL trim this year as well. It features leather seats, a power tailgate, and compatibility with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay via its 8-inch touch screen.

The S trim gets a naturally-aspirated 2.5-liter i-VCT engine. The SE and SEL trims come with either a 1.5-liter or 2.0-liter turbocharged EcoBoost engine, while the Titanium trim is only available with the 2.0-liter engine. The same six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission is standard on all trims.

2018 Ford Escape Safety and Special Features

The 2018 Ford Escape earned a five-star safety rating from the NHTSA. We’re still waiting on an IIHS rating as of this writing.

Most new Ford models save their best features for the upper trims, and the Ford Escape is no exception. One such feature is the Ford SYNC 3 infotainment system. It’s faster and allows remote access to some vehicle functions with either an Android or iPhone. Needless to say, it also supports the popular Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
