Many households these days opt for a compact SUV that is stylish and boasts of excellent and unparalleled features, and when it comes to SUVs, the Ford Escape continues to rank high among car enthusiasts and buyers. This particular Ford model offers great features, including the ever-important fuel economy. Even the 2010 version, which is the solid base of the subsequent versions, still edges out the current SUV models of other vehicle brands. The Ford Escape 2010 is a 5-passenger, 4-door wagon that includes a lift gate with opening glass. It comes in XLS, XLT, and Limited trims, each with either a front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. This great SUV has the standard 171-horsepower 2.5 liter 4-cylinder engine. There are also other optional elements for the XLT and Limited such as the 240-hp 3.0 liter V6, et cetera.
The asking price for this Escape version is still pretty high; after all, it's a Ford vehicle, meaning it can be superior to most other compact SUVs of its class, so if you're looking for a much more affordable deal then buying a new one may not easily be accommodated by the budget you have set. However, if you're really set on acquiring this particular Ford vehicle, buying a used Escape may be the better option for you. The price is definitely more affordable and with careful inspection and selection, you may get all of the amazing built-in features and of course, the luxurious look.
In buying a used Escape, it's important that you have a list of all the features that it's supposed to have. The Internet is the best place to conduct your research and you will even be provided with supporting images so you will know where the important features are located. This way, you'll be able to spot if something's missing or if the Escape for sale had been customized. Typically, missing features and certain customizations can bring the price down even lower, so if you're working with a very limited budget and can live without some of the standard Escape features, then this type of offering may be something you would want to consider.
However, if you want everything that the 2010 Escape has to offer for a great price, your best choice would be to head to a certified Ford dealership that includes used Fords in its selection. You can be sure to get a Ford that has been thoroughly inspected and assessed by Ford specialists and you even get access to a bigger selection of the same SUV model and version.
