The 2024 Ford Escape: A Comprehensive Review

The 2024 Ford Escape emerges with a promise of power and presence on the road. Equipped with a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine, the latest Escape model asserts its dominance with impressive acceleration and an above-average performance in the sprint from 0-60 mph, clocking in at a swift 6.9 seconds. This feat surpasses the acceleration of many competitors in the same category, laying down a new benchmark for small SUVs.

However, it’s not all about speed with the new Escape. Our thorough road-testing revealed a bumpy coexistence with its automatic transmission. Drivers might find shifts occurring sluggishly, lacking finesse during acceleration and deceleration. The vehicle might jolt a little as it reboots via the stop-start system — a surprising contrast to the seamlessness promoted by its sleek design.

Handling doesn’t escape critique either, as the vehicle demonstrates considerable body roll and a rather cumbersome approach to making turns. The tires, too, seem hesitant to grip the tarmac with confidence. Nonetheless, steering the Escape offers respite with its light touch — a gentle respite in the default drive mode that graduates to a more assertive, controlled feel in the Sport setting.
