The Escape is fundamentally unchanged for 2018, but there are some tweaks to the lineup and to its standard-equipment offerings.The SEL comes standard with leather-trimmed seating, a power liftgate, heated exterior mirrors, an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and LED running lights.

turbo engines return mediocre fuel economy.

The 2018 Ford Escape has the road manners of another kind of car—but don't worry, it still works well as a crossover.

Pros
Tough-hatch lines
Ample cargo bin
Wonderfully taut handling
Tech options aplenty
Brisk 2.0-liter acceleration

Cons
Busy, space-robbing dash
Firm seats, if you’re not into that
Not much SUV, if you’re into that
Optimistic EPA ratings
