GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo., 07/29/2015 /SubmitPressRelease123/
As one of the fastest-growing vehicle segments, the crowded compact-SUV class presents some tough decisions for shoppers, but a new study from J.D. Power suggests that the 2015 Ford Escape is a smart choice for avoiding trouble early on. The 2015 Escape was awarded in the Compact SUV segment of the consumer-research firm’s 2015 Initial Quality Study (IQS), which measured the number of problems experienced per 100 vehicles (PP100) during the first 90 days of ownership.
Using a 233-question survey that covered eight problem areas, J.D. Power sought feedback from more than 84,000 owners and lessees of new 2015-model-year vehicles. The 2015 models with the lowest PP100 scores in their respective segments earned awards, with the 2015 Escape sharing bragging rights for the lowest PP100 score in the Compact SUV segment. Ford was also recognized for its 2015 Ford Super Duty, which stood alone atop the Large Heavy Duty Pickup segment.
“The J.D. Power IQS proves that there are some very real differences to consider if you want to be satisfied with your choice of compact SUV, and Ford’s experience in the segment really shines through with the 2015 Escape,” said Steve Nilsson, general manager of Glenwood Springs Ford, a Colorado Ford dealership near Grand Junction. “The first Escape hit the market 15 years ago, and Ford has refined the vehicle over three generations so that buyers get exactly what they’re looking for after they leave the dealership.”
With two available EcoBoost four-cylinder engines, the 2015 Ford Escape offers an appealing mix of responsive performance and cost-saving fuel efficiency. Buyers who opt for the 1.6-liter EcoBoost receive up to 32 mpg on the highway, while the 240-horsepower 2.0-liter EcoBoost enables the Escape to tow up to 3,500 pounds when equipped with the Class II Trailer Tow Package. Beyond the engine bay, owners can benefit from a range of optional technology features, including a foot-activated power liftgate, Active Park Assist and voice-activated SYNC connectivity for hands-free calling and integration with popular smartphone apps.
