Adept at multitasking. 

We designed Escape to make your life easier. It starts with available Intelligent Access with push-button start. You want to carry lots of cargo? No problem. The rear seats fold to provide up to 68 cu. ft. of cargo capacity. Accessing the rear of the vehicle is also a breeze, thanks to an available hands-free, foot-activated liftgate. And to help you while slowly backing up the vehicle, a rearview camera is standard and a Reverse Sensing System is available.
