If you’re looking for a solid pre-owned family vehicle, be sure to consider the 2008 Ford Escape. This crossover provides responsive performance and an innovative interior that boasts plenty of room for passengers and cargo. The 2008 Escape is available in three trims: XLS, XLT, and Limited.
Under the hood of the 2008 Escape, you will find one of two engine options. The standard engine is a 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 153 horsepower and 152 lb-ft of torque. A five-speed manual transmission is standard, though a four-speed automatic is also available. The second engine is only available on the Limited trim level. This 3.0-liter V6 produces 200 horsepower and 193 lb-ft of torque and is paired to a four-speed automatic. Both engines come available with either front- or all-wheel drive.
Innovation and Comfort
The 2008 Ford Escape offers a redesigned interior that represents a significant upgrade from the vehicle’s previous generation. Its dashboard has a new design, boasting a strip of readouts near the windshield including temperature and radio functions. An auxiliary audio jack comes standard, allowing you to connect your phone with ease. The 2008 Escape was the first of its kind to come available with Ford’s touch-screen navigation system. This system allows you to keep connected on the go and offers SiriusXM® Satellite Radio to ensure you stay entertained as well. Many 2008 models don’t offer this type of innovation.
The Escape can seat up to five passengers comfortably, making it ideal for families. It can also fit up to 66.3 cubic feet of cargo with the rear seats folded down. Seating surfaces are made from recycled materials, and the laptop-sized center console is ideal for storage. For drivers, available power heated outside mirrors make defrosting easy when the weather is chilly.
