What are the Other New Ford Escape Trim Level Differences?
The differences between the four new Ford Escape models are more than just what’s found under the hood. More specifically, 2018 Ford Escape S and SE trim levels include four 12-volt powerpoints, whereas 2018 Ford Escape SEL and Titanium trim levels include only three. If you want an enhanced Sony audio system complete with 10 speakers, a remote start system, Intelligent Access with push-button start and the SYNC 3 infotainment system featuring an 8-inch color LCD capacitive touchscreen, AppLink, 911 Assist and two smart-charging USB ports, you’re going to want to purchase a new Ford Escape Titanium. If you’re only interested in the SYNC 3 infotainment system out of that list, then you can purchase a new Ford Escape SEL. New Ford Escape S and SE trim levels feature the SYNC infotainment system that comes with a 4.2-inch color LCD screen and one smart-charging USB port.
