2017 Ford Escape Trend diesel AWD review

With a diesel engine, auto transmission and all-wheel drive, all for less than forty grand, the 2017 Ford Escape Trend diesel AWD offers a solid alternative for buyers in the medium SUV segment.

2017 Ford Escape 2.0L Titanium review

The Blue Oval's flagship Ford Escape 2.0 Titanium is a medium SUV that thinks it's a plus-sized hot hatch. But does its potent turbo-petrol heartbeat improve or diminish its family-hauling capabilities?

2017 Ford Escape Titanium TDCi review

The new Ford Escape gets a new look and a name change. But is the flagship Titanium diesel worth the near $50,000 spend?

2017 Ford Escape beach blast

Taking a city-focused SUV for a spin on the sand isn't what most people would do in a new car, but that's exactly where we took the 2017 Ford Escape to test out the autonomous emergency braking, on-demand all-wheel drive system and rear-view camera. We started the day at Sydney's famous Bondi Beach (but not on the sand), then headed to Boat Harbour which is one of the few beaches around Sydney that you actually are allowed to drive on...

2017 Ford Escape range review

One of the Australian car market's great mysteries is why Ford Australia has been so bad at convincing people to buy its Escape mid-sized SUV. Or, for that matter, its Kuga predecessor. Despite being a relatively well-rounded offering, Ford's market share at the time of writing was/is  just three per cent, miles behind the Mazda CX-5 (15...

2017 Ford Escape Trend (AWD) review

I gave in to the other half insisting she wanted an SUV. I couldn't even have a sporting sedan or wagon, so after deciding to get rid of the beloved Alfa, I thought I'd also throw away my last ounce of enthusiasm to drive anything remotely enjoyable. We seriously considered a Suzuki Vitara Turbo or the even more practical but weirder-looking S-Cross with the same engine...

2017 Ford Escape Trend (AWD) review

Following our appearance on the BBC TV program Wanted Down Under, which gave my wife and I a taste of the Aussie lifestyle, we moved to Perth, WA in 2017. I decided I would need to buy a car almost as soon as I landed. One of the things I had noted in our two-week visit to Australia in 2016 was that many Aussies prefer their cars larger, and often think nothing of a fairly long commute to and from work, driving 50–60km in each direction from the outer suburbs to the CBD...
