Eye catching design, a high tech interior, functionality and eco-friendliness all converge into one popular package with the 2014 Escape DFW.

As one of the country’s best-selling vehicles, this crossover starts with a trend-setting exterior. Boasting Z-shaped body lines and a kinetic design that gives a Ford Escape from a Ford DFW dealer the appearance of being in motion even when its stationary,  the Escape look like nothing else on the road — much less its class. It’s modern, yet sporty and agile look makes it the quintessential crossover. But its looks aren’t just for looks alone — its aerodynamic design reduces drag and wind resistance and increases fuel efficiency. What this means is less money spent on gas with its 31 miles per gallon on the highway and 22 mph in the city. The 2014 Ford Escape is just as easy on gas as it is easy on the eyes.

Power, Performance, and Technology the 2014 Ford Escape DFW!

Redesigned for 2013 the Ford DFW Escape was listed as a Best Compact SUV for the Money from U.S. News and World Reports. The magazine includes the small crossover many advances to include technology features such as the motion-activated lift gate. I for one am enamored with the idea of a motion-activated lift gate. All too often I am fighting with my keys and rearranging bulky items so that I can open up the backend of my SUV. I will be the first to admit that I’d campaign for almost anything that allowed me to a bit lazier.

The rejuvenated Ford Ft. Worth Escape took this aging mid-pack SUV and brought it back; front and center. The Escape’s 2013 redesign wasn’t all-cosmetic it included an increasein fuel efficiency, performance and comfort.

2014 Ford Escape DFWThe 2014 Ford Escape DFW is available in three trim levels: S, SE and Titanium. The base S trim comes standard with a couple unexpected trim level features including a rearview camera and Ford’s Sync voice command center. Additional features include full-power accessories, air-conditioning and a six-speaker sound system. Ford’s SE trim sets up with a turbocharged engine, keyless entry keypad, satellite radio and a power driver’s seat. While the top-of-the-line Titanium comes standard with keyless entry/ignition, MyFord Touch Infotainment System, leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control and heated front seats. Many of the features found on the upper trims are available options for the lower trims. Other available features include a panoramic sunroof, the aforementioned power lift gate, navigation and automated parallel-parking assist.

The 2014 Ford Escape DFW can be had with one of three engines; all three engines are paired up with a six-speed transmission. Front-wheel drive comes standard, while all-wheel drive is optional. The base S comes standard with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that is good for 168-horsepower. The SE and Titanium trims come standard with a 178-hp turbocharged 1.6-liter, four-cylinder engine. The most powerful engine of the bunch is a 240-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that has the performance of a V6 and gets better fuel economy.

The redesign in 2013 made the Ford DFW Escape easier to use, the second row split-and-folding seats now fold flat with ease. The roomier cabin means there is more space for children to be loaded down in the second row with band instruments and sporting equipment. The only changes the Escape has seen since 2013 is the removal of the SEL trim and the 2.0-liter engine is no longer standard on the Titanium trim.
