2021 Ford Escape ST-Line review

Ford's Escape ST-Line promises an SUV garnished with sportiness. What do we think?

2021 Ford Escape review: Vignale AWD

The new 2021 Ford Escape range has landed in Oz. We grab the top-spec Vignale to see how it stacks up.

2018 Ford Escape ST-Line long-term review: Farewell

The Escape is chronically overlooked in a crowded segment. Has four months behind the wheel opened our eyes to its positives?

2018 Ford Escape ST-Line long-termer: Highway driving

There's nothing better than packing up and hitting the road, especially when you're headed for somewhere like Moggs Creek. Nestled at the start of the Great Ocean Road, you're within walking distance of a quality surf break, a national park, hiking trails and some great off-roading.

Trent Nikolic takes his first look at the Blue Oval's new SUV in Vignale specification.

Ford Escape ST-Line long-term review: Introduction

Say hello to our latest long-termer, the Ford Escape ST-Line. It's punchy, not bad to look at, and a decent family hauler. At least, we think it is - but that's what these long-term reviews are all about. Finding out the ups and downs.

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.

Hyundai Tucson Highlander v Ford Escape Titanium petrol SUV comparison

Read the full article here. The Hyundai Tucson is Australia's second most popular SUV behind the Mazda CX-5, ergo one of the market's top-selling vehicles full stop. By contrast, the newly renamed Ford Escape (nee Kuga) is a perennial underachiever, highly regarded critically but comparatively ignored by buyers...

Family SUV review: 2021 Ford Escape v Mazda CX-5 comparison

Ford’s new-generation Escape needs to be a hit with Australian buyers. Proving it’s better than Mazda’s most popular model would be a great starting point.

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...

Ford Escape Titanium v Hyundai Tucson Highlander petrol SUV comparison

The Hyundai Tucson is Australia's second most popular SUV behind the Mazda CX-5, ergo one of the market's top-selling vehicles full stop. By contrast, the newly renamed Ford Escape (nee Kuga) is a perennial underachiever, highly regarded critically but comparatively ignored by buyers. We want to investigate whether this discrepancy is justified...

Cheap speed: The cars with the most power per dollar

In our era of turbocharging and electrification, it can seem almost weekly that a new, immensely powerful, absurdly expensive hypercar or super-sedan makes its debut. The Bugatti Bolide, SSC Tuatara, Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series and heavyweight GMC Hummer EV encompass some of the more recent additions to the high-horsepower club...

2021 Ford Escape Hybrid revealed for Europe, but Australia to miss out

The 2021 Ford Escape Hybrid has been unveiled in European-specification form – badged overseas as the Ford Kuga Hybrid – but Australia might miss out on the eco-friendly model. While the plug-in hybrid Escape has been confirmed for an (albeit recently delayed) Australian arrival in late 2021, the conventional hybrid has yet to be confirmed for our shores...

2020 Ford Escape awarded five-star safety rating

The 2020 Ford Escape will hit showrooms next month, and buyers can now be assured the all-new SUV offers some of the highest levels of safety available. The independent Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) awarded the Escape a five-star safety rating off data provided by partner Euro NCAP, scoring favourably with adult occupant protection (92 per cent), child occupant protection (89 per cent), vulnerable road user protection (82 per cent), and safety assists (77 per cent)...

2016 Ford Escape Titanium (AWD) review

The Escape was purchased just under three years ago to replace a Toyota RAV4 V6. My wish list included a traditional automatic gearbox rather than a CVT, the full suite of active safety features including radar cruise control, decent performance, no “premium” European brands, and new or nearly new...

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...
