Buying a Used Ford Escape - Why This Compact SUV is a Great Option for All

Buying a Used Ford Escape - Why This Compact SUV is a Great Option for All

Ford introduced the Escape in 2001 to offer buyers a truck-based SUV that featured space and style but did not include unnecessary off-road capabilities and huge towing capability. Almost two decades later, the Escape continues to be one of the most popular SUVs in its class, ranking in the top five and competing against the major players--the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4.


Ford completely redesigned the Escape for the 2020 model year, providing more leg, hip, and shoulder room for passengers and a lighter, sportier look. Many drivers are trading in their older Escapes to bring home one of the new redesigns. For this reason, now is a great time for drivers to buy a used Ford Escape in Vancouver. Inventory is up, sales are happening, and the Escape offers great reliability and quality for many years to come.


The Perks of Buying a Used Ford Escape

Ford continually listens to their drivers, making touchups between model years and including driver feedback during major overhauls. For this reason, the Ford Escape has kept abreast of the latest technology offerings, including driver-assist, infotainment, smartphone connectivity, and more. Drivers looking at late-model Ford Escapes will see a difference in style, but there will not be a lot of technology lacking between a used and new Ford Escape. For this reason, buying a used Ford Escape is a great idea.


Another great reason to buy a Ford Escape is the monetary savings. A used Ford Escape will cost thousands less than a new one. For drivers with a specific budget, a used vehicle can allow them to get more technology and safety offerings than they would on a brand-new model. Instead of buying a basic brand-new vehicle, drivers can purchase a higher-end used car that has been driven a few thousand kilometres. Once a pre-owned vehicle has been inspected and detailed, it looks and feels just like a brand-new car, too.


In addition, buying used also means drivers can take advantage of the perks of Ford's pre-owned certified program. If drivers buy a certified pre-owned model, they will get additional warranty coverage (12-months/12,000-kilometres for components and 7-year/100,000-kilometres for powertrain) and a vehicle that has undergone a 172-point inspection by certified technicians. If worn-out parts or issues were found, quality Ford parts were used to fix them. In addition, every Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicle comes with complimentary Roadside Assistance that is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.



The Bottom Line - A Used Ford Escape is a Great Choice

Prospective buyers would do well to consider a used Ford Escape if they want a reliable, good quality, and distinctive small SUV. The Escape offers plenty of room for individuals and families alike. With both an excess of passenger and cargo space, the Escape can handle day-to-day errands as well as long cross-country treks. For drivers that want to see for themselves, Key West Ford offers a wide selection of Escapes and other used Ford models for sale in Vancouver.
