My grandpa is using this 2018 Ford Escape SE while his Lincoln MKZ is being repaired. The Ford Escape is a crossover that’s been in production since 2000 (the first model year was 2001). This is from the third generation, which has been in production since 2013. The engine is a 1.5 liter turbocharged Ecoboost straight-4 that produces 179 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque. The transmission is a 6-speed automatic.
