What's New in the 2015 Ford Escape?

The Escape is largely unchanged this year. 

Which Escape is the Best?

While we love all the extra tech goodies in the Titanium model, its price seems at odds with the reason most people buy a smaller SUV: affordability. We think the SE trim with the 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine is the most sensible choice. Find a Ford Escape for sale


How Much Does a 2015 Ford Escape Cost?

The 2015 Ford Escape is offered in three trim levels: S, SE and Titanium.

The base Escape S ($23,855) includes cruise control, air conditioning, a rearview camera, the SYNC voice-command system, Bluetooth, a 6-speaker stereo with an auxiliary input jack, reclining rear seats, the MyKey programmable key fob (which lets parents set limits on radio volume and top speed) and 17-in steel wheels with plastic covers.

The SE ($26,545) adds 17-in alloy wheels, exterior keypads for the door locks, satellite radio, a power driver's seat with lumbar adjustment, fog lights, automatic headlights and the turbocharged 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine.

Options for the SE include a panoramic glass moonroof, voice-activated navigation, a power cargo door with motion-sensing activation, 18-in alloy wheels, dual-zone automatic climate controls, upgraded SYNC with AppLink smartphone integration, and MyFord Touch with an 8-in touchscreen, a 9-speaker audio upgrade, dual USB ports and an SD-card reader.

The Titanium ($30,140) tacks on most of the SE's standard and optional niceties along with keyless entry/start and Sony audio with 10 speakers. Options include the 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine, parking sensors, bi-xenon headlights and a blind spot monitoring system with cross-traffic alert. The Titanium can also be equipped with a nifty automated self-parking system that takes the guesswork (and effort) out of parallel parking.

All-wheel drive is available on the SE and Titanium at extra cost.

2015 Ford Escape vs the competition

2015 Honda CR-V -- Considered by many to be the gold standard in compact crossovers, the CR-V has a well-deserved reputation for reliability, an area where the Escape has yet to prove itself.

2015 Toyota RAV4 -- The RAV4 is projected to hold its value better than the Escape, and the current model offers an extra dose of interior style.

2015 Subaru Forester -- The Forester doesn't handle as well as the Escape, but the turbocharged XT model has even more power than the EcoBoost 2.0.

Used Audi Q5 -- A certified pre-owned (CPO) Q5 can be had for the price of a well-equipped Escape, and with Audi's CPO warranty, it's almost like getting a new luxury crossover.
