Between driving to work, visiting friends, and running everyday errands, San Diego drivers need their vehicles to cover a lot of ground. But for some, the space found within a standard sedan or coupe simply isn’t enough to meet the demands of the daily grind. That’s why at Kearny Pearson Ford, we often like to highlight the benefits of a compact SUV like the 2016 Ford Escape. Designed to provide both practical cargo space and smooth handling, the Ford Escape may be the vehicle to choose if you’re planning to buy a Ford this year.

For 2016, the Ford Escape includes three hearty engine options for drivers to choose from. This gives owners the ability to tailor the vehicle to meet a range of driving needs. The base configuration is a 2.5-liter Duratec engine but drivers can also select a 1.6-liter EcoBoost® or 2.0-liter EcoBoost® for additional power and capability. With an upgraded engine configuration, the 2016 Ford Escape is capable of towing up to 3,500 pounds, which is more than enough to haul trailers or medium-sized boats.

In addition to its great performance options, the 2016 Ford Escape treats drivers to an interior cabin that’s both functional and comfortable. Owners can look forward to the feel of available leather seats and a 10-way power driver’s seat with adjustable lumbar support. And they won’t have to fuss when loading up their gear thanks to standard 60/40 split rear row seats. In total, the Escape provides an impressive 67.8 cubic feet of space, which is ideal for everything from luggage and sports equipment to furniture and groceries.
