Check Out the 2012 Ford Escape in Bristol, TN, at Friendship Ford of Bristol!
Friendship Ford of Bristol, TN, is pleased to offer the 2012 Ford Escape, the ultimate low-impact SUV, to our customers in and around the Tri-Cities area.
Escape Performance and Handling
The Escape is a more perfect form of SUV - one that delivers sporty performance and great fuel economy, and comes available in XLS, XLT and Limited trims. If you're looking to go farther on a tank of gas, the standard I-4 engine features an impressive EPA-estimated 28 hwy mpg. The available 240-hp V6 engine allows the Escape to tow up to 3,500 pounds when equipped with the available Class II Trailer Tow Package. A smooth-shifting six-speed automatic transmission is available with the standard 2.5L Duratec™ I-4 engine and standard with the available 3.0L Duratec™ V6. With its wide span of gear ratios across the six speeds, this transmission provides responsive acceleration at the low end and excellent highway fuel economy in the overdrive sixth gear. The excellent handling characteristics of the Escape can be attributed, in part, to the independent double-lateral and semi-trailing arm design of the vehicle's rear suspension system. This design allows each rear wheel to operate independently and negotiate road conditions individually. An 18.5mm rear stabilizer bar and precise suspension tuning also contribute to the controlled, responsive ride. And the available Intelligent 4WD System provides maximum traction under a variety of driving conditions.
Escape Standard & Optional Equipment
Don't let the small SUV category fool you. There's roomy, comfortable seating for five plus a versatile cargo area with 31.4 cu. ft. of space behind the rear seats. Need more room? Fold the rear seats down for 67.2 cu. ft. of total storage space. The roof rack can carry up to 100 lbs. of cargo with the available crossbars. Even the smallest storage needs are accommodated, with a three-tier storage system in the center console that has a hidden level big enough for a laptop or a purse. The Escape can be equipped with an available wet trunk to store and protect your personal items. Included in the Cargo Package, the lockable wet trunk bin is positioned underneath the rear cargo area away from prying eyes. Dual-zone electronic automatic temperature control (DEATC, available on the Limited) allows you and your front passenger to set individual temperature zones for complete comfort.
Communication is key to a successful partnership, so get ready to be very happy with the Escape. You can bond over things such as music and phone calls with the available SYNC™ voice-activated communications and entertainment system. Using simple voice commands, you can also tell the available Navigation System exactly where you want to go. Now consider additional technology options such as active park assist and the rear view camera. It sounds like the beginning of a beautiful relationship. Enjoy the sunshine and fresh air with the available power moonroof. Open or close the moonroof with the push of a button. There is also a vent feature if you simply want fresh air in the cabin. A sunshade and mini overhead console are included. The moonroof and Ford SYNC™ are included in the Sun & SYNC™ Package on the Escape XLT. The moonroof and 320-watt Premium Sound System are included in the Moon & Tune Package in the Escape Limited. The moonroof is standard on the Hybrid Limited.
