The redesigned 2013 Ford Escape impresses auto writers with its engaging performance, though some say that the Escape’s tech features can be difficult to use.

The 2013 Ford Escape has a 2.5-liter base engine that gets good fuel economy. However, critics prefer the optional EcoBoost engines for their lively acceleration. test drivers say the 2013 Escape handles a lot like a small car, making it one of the most fun-to-drive cars in the class.

The Ford Escape is the 2013 Best Compact SUV for the Money because it has the best combination of ownership costs and positive reviews in its class.

 Inside, the 2013 Escape has good cargo space, though it doesn’t have as much as family-focused rivals like the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4. Test drivers also say the cabin has a quality look and feel, and report that there’s comfortable seating for all but the tallest passengers. The 2013 Escape can be equipped with interior tech like Ford Sync and Sync with MyFord Touch, as well as a class-exclusive, motion-activated liftgate. While these features make the Escape one of the most high-tech models in the class, more than one reviewer notes that they can be hard to use. 

  • "The redesigned 2013 Ford Escape is dramatically different than the vehicle it replaces. This compact sport utility is smooth, refined, and quite engaging to drive." -- Consumer Guide
  • "The new Escape finally delivers a modern small crossover to the Ford family. It's certainly one of the sharpest looking vehicles in this price class, and when equipped with one of the EcoBoost engines, the Escape is a fun and practical ute." -- Popular Mechanics
  • "Pros: Slippery styling, zippy handling, bank-vault solidity. Cons: MyFord Touch infotainment hassles, and, um, that's about it." -- MSNBC

I would rank my escape higher than 8.  It has all I need plus the style and MPG
