2016 Ford Escape

Palm Coast and Fort Walton Beach car shoppers have often asked us which is the better option: the 2016 Ford Escape or the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander? We have no problem telling our customers that we think the 2016 Ford Escape is by far the better option in part because of its superior features.

Standard Features

The 2016 Ford Escape offers a number of standard features that you won’t find on the base model of the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander. Palm Coast and Fort Walton Beach drivers will enjoy luxury features on the entry-level 2016 Escape such as:

  • Rearview camera and display
  • Overhead console with sunglasses holder
  • 6 cupholders
  • Ice Blue interior lighting
  • Manual day/night rearview mirror
  • Programmable MyKey

Another feature that is available on the Escape but not available on the Mitsubishi Outlander is the voice-activated SYNC 3 infotainment system, which can locate your favorite restaurants, the nearest ATM, and more. It uses simple, real-world voice commands to program your destination via the optional navigation system. It even integrates with Apple Siri!

Power and Control on the Road

You’ll find optimal power and control on the road with the 2016 Ford Escape because of its impressive engine and control systems. The 2016 Escape comes standard with a 168-hp 2.5L Duratec engine, which you can upgrade to either a 1.6L EcoBoost that delivers 178 hp or a 2.0L EcoBoost I-4 engine that delivers 240 hp.

With the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander, Palm Coast and Fort Walton Beach shoppers can only choose from 2.4L 4-cylinder engine or a 3.0L MIVEC V6 engine. Both deliver less horsepower than the Escape’s engines.

The 2016 Ford Escape also has a Torque Vectoring Control system that simultaneously adjusts the speed between the front wheels to make going around turns easier. It also features a Curve Control system that can slow your vehicle down when it senses that you’re going too fast around a curve. Neither system is included on the Mitsubishi Outlander.
