This Ford Escape is quieter and more comfortable than the previous model we tested in 2001. IIHS crash-test results improved, as well. The Escape is agile, but had less tire grip than the 2001 version we tested. Because of this it had a relatively long braking distance and low maximum speed in our avoidance maneuver. Also, compared with many competing models, the Escape had slow acceleration times and so-so fuel economy.
