When searching for a midsize SUV in today’s market you certainly aren’t short of choices; the Honda Pilot, Toyota Highlander and the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Kia Sorento to just name a few. Car buyers appreciate their modern styling, family car practicality and high driving position and the SUV that always delivers is the Ford Escape Titanium, this year is no exception. The 2019 model is an attractive, compact SUV that packs one heck of a punch. It not only boasts an Eco boost engine, Titanium trim and advanced voice control but this affordable vehicle is a great choice for both young families and urban residents.  

The 2019 Ford Escape is a special breed of compact crossover that skilfully combines performance and practicality. Snazzy handling and a powerful turbocharged engine make the Escape drives more like a sedan, without forfeiting SUV adaptability, making it a double whammy. With 5 trims available the Escapes' most prestigious form is the Ford Escape Titanium and it offers some eyebrow-raising features and components.

If you’re drawn to a vehicle with a higher level of performance, connectivity and design, then look no further. Starting with the tech; it retains all the standard features that come with the S, SE and SEL trim such as a remote start system, a SiriusXM radio with traffic and travel link and intelligent infotainment system. On top of this, it also offers a universal garage door opener and voice-activated touchscreen navigation system, so it's fair to say it's not short of tech.  Ford didn't stop there though, they added a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine, a six-speed automatic transmission, 19-inch wheels, a power liftgate, remote start, ambient interior lighting, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, xenon headlights, heated and 10-way power-adjustable front seats, driver-seat memory settings, a 110-volt, household-style power outlet and additional 12-volt power outlets.

One particularly noteworthy feature is the Ecoboost 2.0- litre engine. Ecoboost is a name coined by Ford, it translates to turbocharged, a word that we all love to hear. 2 of the 4 cylinders are designed to conserve fuel when maintaining cruising speed, but when you want to put your foot down it gives you an all-mighty kick in the butt. Be warned though, when you push the pedal to the metal you certainly won't be in fuel saver mode and it will pay in the long run to use premium gas. While this may take a chunk out of your wallet, it'll be sure to put a smile on your face.

So you may be sat there asking yourself 'Is this car for me?' the answer is a resounding yes. The great thing about the Ford Escape Titanium is that it's incredibly versatile. If you live out in a more rural area this SUV does exactly what it's designed to do, it will get you from A to B regardless of the conditions, all in style and comfort. Families can rejoice at the spacious and comfortable interior, those cramped road trips are a thing of the past, and with a towing capacity of 3,500 pounds, you could actually tow a sedan behind you full of spare stuff.  Even residents of more urban areas can enjoy the receptive handling and smooth cornering that the Escape offers, and when they want to whisk away to the mountains they're set and ready to go.  All of this is available for a wonderfully modest price, a top of the range SUV that's spec'd out to this standard often comes with a rather hefty price-tag, not so much the Titanium,  with it coming in at a very respectable $33,600.
