Even though the Escape hasn't changed for years, it remains one of the bestselling compact SUVs in Canada. Consumers keep coming back for its versatility despite its small size. The optional 245-horsepower turbo engine makes it one of the most powerful SUVs in its class. There are two other engines available: a 2.5-litre four-cylinder that develops 168 horsepower and spins the front wheels, and a 179-horsepower, 1.5-litre turbo that sends power to all four wheels.
