Trims and Powertrain

The 2023 Escape lineup contains six trims: Base, Active, ST-Line, ST-Line Select, Platinum, and ST-Line Elite. The Base, Active, and ST-Line have a 181-horsepower turbocharged 1.5-liter EcoBoost three-cylinder engine and front-wheel drive (FWD); all-wheel drive (AWD) is optional. The higher trims have standard AWD and a turbocharged 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine making 250 horsepower and 280 lb.-ft. of torque. An eight-speed automatic transmission is standard across the lineup, with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters accompanying the larger engine. A properly equipped 2023 Ford Escape with the 2.0-liter EcoBoost can tow up to 3,500 pounds.

With FWD, the Escape with the 1.5-liter engine is EPA-rated to return 28 mpg around town and 34 mpg on the open road; this will change to 26 city/31 highway with AWD. With the larger engine (and AWD) the official rating is 22 mpg city/31 mpg highway.

The ST-Line (along with the other ST-Line trims) stands apart thanks to its sporty exterior accents: a black-mesh grille, an exclusive rear skid plate, 18-inch painted aluminum wheels, a distinctive single-wing rear spoiler, and roof rack side rails.
