2014 Ford Escape – One of the Best Compact SUVs on the Market

The 2014 Ford Escape has a lot going for it, from the cutting-edge technology (even in the standard package) to the sporty design and fun driving dynamics. It’s one of our favorite compact SUVs, down at the Bloomington Ford car dealership.

Fun-to-Drive Factor

The high-end 2.0-liter EcoBoost delivers on the power factor, but the 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine arguably has a better balance between power and fuel economy. The standard four-cylinder engine achieves 22 mpg in the city and 31 on the highway.

The 2014 Ford Escape is a lot of fun to drive. Built on the same platform as the Ford Focus, the small-car base makes this compact SUV more enjoyable. Add in the great handling, agility, and control around the difficult turns, and you have a car that you’ll be eager to drive.

Large Package of Features as Standard

In the standard trim you’ll get:

– Back-up camera
– Bluetooth
– USB port
– Ford’s Sync with MyFord allowing voice control of your smartphone

You can also add on:

– Motion-activated liftgate
– MyFord Touch infotainment system

The motion-activated liftgate means that even if you are laden down with bags, you can wave your foot under the rear bumper to activate the liftgate. All these features make the 2014 Ford Escape a feature-rich compact SUV that leads the way in this category.

If the Ford Escape has caught your eye, then come on down to give one a closer inspection and test drive at our Bloomington Ford car dealership.

2014 Ford Focus – A Small Car That Makes a Big Impression

The Ford Focus is a long running model by Ford that delivers on reliability, quality of build, and fuel economy. It’s a popular car, here at the Bloomington Ford car dealership in Indiana.

Multiple Engine Options to Suit Your Needs

You may want the standard 2014 Focus that comes with a four-cylinder engine, five-speed manual transmission, and a fuel economy reported by the EPA to reach 26 mpg in the city and 36 on the highway: above average for a compact affordable car. The optional SFE package can give your fuel economy a boost, with the EPA reporting of 28 mpg in the city and 40 on the highway. All of these performance attributes are increased if you opt for the 2014 Focus ST that will give you a turbocharged engine and even better handling than the standard package.
