Powering the 2018 Ford Escape SEL is the powerful and Efficient 2.0L Twin-Scroll EcoBoost® engine. This engine makes use out of the innovative Auto Start-Stop technology to help optimize its fuel efficiency. When you bring your Escape Titanium to a complete stop, the Auto Start-Stop system will automatically turn off your engine for the duration of your stop. This means that you won't be wasting any precious gasoline while you're waiting for that light to turn green. When you take your foot off of the brake pedal, your engine will seamlessly start back up and you'll be ready to continue your adventure.
This engine comes standard with the advanced Intelligent 4WD System. By monitoring tire traction and road conditions, this system is able to sense when one of your wheels starts to slip. After it detects a loss of traction, it will automatically transfer torque to the appropriate wheel in order to compensate and keep your Escape Titanium from sliding into the ditch. Another helpful feature standard on the Escape Titanium is the Curve Control feature which can detect when you're going too fast through a turn, and will automatically slow down your engine.
In addition to all this engine and traction technology, the 2018 Escape Titanium is home to a host of standard and available Driver Assist technologies that have been designed to make your driving easy, convenient, and safe. One of these features, the available Blind Spot Information System, uses a sensor to carefully monitor the area around your Escape Titanium. When this system detects that another vehicle is entering into one of your blind spots, it will automatically send you an alert by illuminating a light on the appropriate side-view mirror, in order to let you know that it isn't safe to change lanes.
Coming standard on the Escape Titanium is the ever-popular Enhanced Active Park Assist feature. This is surely going to become your favorite part of your Escape Titanium, as you won't have to worry about parking into tight spaces, or parallel parking ever again! Ultrasonic sensors along the vehicles are capable of searching for, and locating a parking stall and steering itself inside. When a spot is found, you'll be prompted to start the system. Then, all you'll need to do is man the brakes, accelerator, and shift the gears while your Escape Titanium parks itself.
