2018 Ford Escape’s New “SEL” Trim is Worth a Look!

As this year taught us, Ford is far from remiss to go above and beyond where competitors fall short. One such way is how they update their impressive lineup of vehicles, even beyond industry expectations. Take the new 2018 Escape, for example. After its update last year, it's already gaining a new trim level called the “SEL” with some valuable features.

The SEL trim slots above the “SE” and below the range-topping Titanium, and comes standard with features that are optional on other models. But in addition to added value, the Escape SEL also benefits from the skillsets this compact utility has always offered. Between a maximum of 68 cubic feet of cargo volume, the ability to tow 2,000 lbs., and available AWD on every model but the base, it’s no wonder you see so many in the greater Philadelphia area!

However, we imagine the SEL will be quite popular, too. Coming standard with the 1.5-liter EcoBoost inline-four, the Escape boasts 179 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque, and returns 23 mpg city/30 mpg highway in FWD, and 22 mpg city/28 mpg highway in AWD. Those efficiency numbers are backed by the aforementioned tow rating—which is higher than the top competitors.

So where the Escape SEL makes sure utility stays in the equation, it also adds on something extra: luxury by the trunk load. In addition to leather upholstery and seating, this trim features a standard power tailgate, a full complement of SYNC3 functionality, and SYNC Connect which includes a Wi-Fi hotspot and the ability to remotely control vehicle functions. Additionally, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration is standard.

But where the 2018 Escape SEL has put value front and center, you can also fit it out with numerous options ranging from unique appearance packages to safety technologies like blind-spot warning, forward collision warning, lane-keep assist, and adaptive cruise control. If you want to learn the full scope of what’s offered on the SEL, or another Escape trim, please contact us as it’s convenient.
