While not as large as competitors like the Honda CR-V, Subaru Forester or Toyota RAV4, the 2019 Ford Escape remains a desirable compact-crossover SUV brimming with features, style and performance. An optional 245-horsepower turbocharged engine and 3,500-pound tow rating keep this aging SUV a popular choice, as do cool features like a keyless-entry pad.
