Auto Transport Quotes: Ford Escape
The Ford Escape is a compact crossover vehicle first introduced in 2000 for the 2001 model year. It was priced below the Explorer, a full-sized crossover, though like the Explorer it is included in Ford’s standard SUV lineup, which ranges from the Escape, Explorer and Expedition (lowest-to-highest), as opposed to being a part of its actual crossover lineup which consists of the Edge and the Flex. The Escape is currently in its third generation, which debuted in 2012 with the 2013 model, and while it was once available as a hybrid Ford has dropped the hybrid model, stating that the new 1.6L EcoBoost engine will match the fuel economy of the current Escape Hybrid. Also gone is the V6 variant; Ford’s new 2.0L EcoBoost engine is said to provide more horsepower than the current V6 model while also providing better fuel economy.

When it comes to transporting a Ford Escape you’ll find that its smaller stature makes it easier – and cheaper – to transport. Unlike a vehicle like the Ford Expedition, which is one of the largest full-size SUV’s on the market, the Escape is relatively light and not nearly as bulky, which makes it more appealing to transporters looking for loads. You should expect to see slightly higher prices to ship an Escape, as it’s an SUV and naturally larger and heavier than a sedan, but what we’re saying is it won’t be as drastic as a larger SUV or a large pickup truck. Older Escapes will likely be a bit cheaper than the current third-generation models (MY 2013 and newer) because of a shorter wheelbase, which means the newer ones are a bit longer than the older Escapes.
