  • Specs & Performance

    Platinum Performance

    The 2023 Ford Escape Platinum compact crossover SUV seats five people, including the driver. It comes with a three-year/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty, as well as warranties for the powertrain, safety restraint system, corrosion, and safety restraint system. If you opt for the available hybrid model, it comes with an eight-year/100,000-mile warranty for the hybrid components. Ford also includes 24/7 roadside assistance so you always have someone to call when something disrupts your travels.

    It is equipped with front-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission standard, though you can opt for the available intelligent all-wheel drive to better handle the harsh Albany winters. The Escape Platinum comes with a set of 19-inch machined-face aluminum wheels with dark tarnished painted pockets. A pair of engine choices means you get to choose between hybrid efficiency or turbocharged power.

    Built Ford Tough

    Are you interested in the hybrid model? It uses a 2.5L turbocharged four-cylinder engine and two electric motors, the result of which is 192 hp to work with. With the hybrid drivetrain, the 2023 Escape is rated for 39 MPG combined. If you’re more interested in raw power than efficiency, you can choose the standard 2.0L EcoBoost engine, which will provide you with 250 hp. If you decide to add the available Class II Trailer Tow Package, you’ll be able to tow up to 3,500 lbs, perfect for that weekend camping trip or event weekend.

    Standard on the 2023 Ford Escape Platinum is AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control (RSC), electric power-assisted steering (EPAS), and independent front and rear suspension. The front suspension utilizes an independent McPherson strut type with a stabilizer bar, along with twin-tube hydraulic, gas-pressurized shocks. The rear suspension system includes independent double lateral link semi-trailing arms with a stabilizer bar and progressive-rate springs, with the same twin-tube hydraulic, gas-pressurized shocks as the front suspension system.

    Staying Safe and Secure

    The 2023 Ford Escape Platinum comes with a myriad of standard safety systems and features designed to prevent accidents from happening in the first place. Some of these features are practical preventative measures, like the Tire Pressure Monitoring System, while others are available to assist the driver in the event of a crash, like the SOS Post-Crash Alert System. Also included are the Belt-Minder for the first and second row, LATCH system, multiple airbags, and the Safety Canopy System, which deploys to prevent injuries in the case of a rollover.

    Three-point seatbelts and adjustable headrests for all five seats ensure that everyone is comfortable and that the seatbelts are at their most useful at any given moment. Auto High-Beam Headlamps and LED reflector headlamps keep you visible at night. Of course, there are cameras––a rearview camera and a 360-degree camera with a Split View––to show you what's outside your vehicle. To help protect your Escape from theft, there is a perimeter alarm, a SecuriCode Keyless Entry Keypad, a SecuriLock Anti-Theft System,

    High-Tech Features

    Tech-wise, the 2023 Ford Escape Platinum is well-equipped, with a wireless charging pad, a universal garage door opener, ambient lighting, four USB ports (two in front, two in the back), a premium-wrapped heated steering wheel with controls for audio and cruise settings, selectable drive modes, and a huge 12.3-inch fully digital instrument cluster. Three years of complimentary Connected Built-In Navigation are included with the 13.2-inch touchscreen infotainment center, along with Ford’s SYNC 4 software, FordPass Connect, and a 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot. Available options include a Bang & Olufsen sound system with ten speakers (including a subwoofer), a head-up display, and a Panoramic Vista Roof.

  • Exterior & Interior Features

    An Eye-Catching Exterior

    Exterior features like the body-color rear spoiler, body-color side mirror caps, and body-color door handles give the 2023 Ford Escape Platinum a unified look, enhanced by highlights such as the chrome upper window molding and chrome beltline molding. LED lighting is standard, as are the black roof-rack side rails and the dual chrome exhaust tips. A power liftgate and heated side mirrors complete the luxurious feel of the Escape Platinum, providing handy features that make your time on the road a bit easier.

    Privacy glass covers the second-row and liftgate areas, and the front rain-sensing wipers do an excellent job of keeping your vision clear, even in the most inclement weather. A rear wiper and washer keep the back window clear, which means you’ll always be able to see where you’re going and where you’re coming from through snow, sleet, and rain. If you are interested in the optional black roof-rack crossbars, please let us know, and we can make sure to include those on your Escape Platinum.

    An Enjoyable Interior

    Inside the cabin, you’ll find a 10-way power driver seat and a six-way power passenger seat, both of which are heated. The second-row sliding seats fold down with a 60/40 split, making it easy to open up more cargo space should the need arise. There are eight cupholders in total throughout the cabin, so no one will have any problem stashing their drinks and other small items. The center floor console comes with an armrest, and there are storage spaces like the glove compartment and an overhead console where you can store your sunglasses so they never get lost.

    Dual-Zone Electronic Automatic Temperature Control means no one will ever have to suffer in silence while cold or hot air blows through the cabin, and there’s plenty of light for playing games, reading, and other activities. Lighting can be had from the front map lights, second-row dome lights, illuminated vanity mirrors, and ambient lighting. Plenty of light, comfortable temperatures, and several USB charging ports mean you’ll always enjoy the drive in your 2023 Ford Escape Platinum.
