2003 Ford Escape

2003 Ford Escape Review

(0 Stars) 

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

For a year and a half, Ford has been hiding the two-wheel-drive, four-cylinder base version of its Escape from the press--and now we know why. With not even two-thirds the power of its V-6 counterpart, the 127-horsepower, four-cylinder Escape can barely pull a feather out of a chicken's behind. Not only is it slow, but the Zetec engine is coarse and noisy to boot. It's a good thing the sixteen-valve four produces its torque down low, because revving it past 4000 rpm drowns out the radio. Despite its lack of power, the front-wheel-drive Escape still spins its inside front wheel at the slightest provocation and suffers from excessive understeer, although the steering is nicely weighted and accurate.
