2013 Ford Escape Titanium 2.0 turbo from North America
Tire pressure monitor sensor.
Great smaller SUV with a lot of features with the Titanium trim. The handling is improved from the previous generation, and the 2.0 EcoBoost engine that takes the place of the 3.0 V6 is smooth and quiet, and does the job well.
I love the panoramic sunroof, and the ambient lighting and Sony stereo are nice touches, as is the 8" touch screen. The seats are supportive and comfortable. It's also a very sharp looking little SUV. I prefer the old school boxy SUVs, but this isn't bad at all. Besides, how often do these things get off the pavement?
The cons? Why on Earth would you offer an 8" screen, packed with navigation, climate control, Bluetooth, A/V inputs, and premium audio, but NOT have a backup camera with it?! One of the most confusing aspects of the vehicle. It was an option, but it should have come standard with the highest infotainment option. The pedals seem a little close together and take some getting used to.
Overall, it's a pleasant to drive vehicle with plenty of fun and functional options. I loved my 2010, too. But they are totally different vehicles.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

People buy the 1.5 base engine as a loss leader - AKA - they need a cheap SUV.
The 2.0 incurs a slight mileage penalty, but a major performance boost. It's the right, right choice :)

Definitely! I've driven both the 2.0 and the 1.5 versions. The 2.0 wins by a landslide. That and it can tow 3500 lb. I know it's a small SUV, but I at least want it to be able to pull a boat or a light trailer when needed. Otherwise, just get a Focus with the base engine or similar and call it good, because it's just as useful and less expensive.
