2002 Ford Escape Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 38 reviews
The 2002 Ford Escape continued to target younger drivers looking for a smaller, more nimble, zippier SUV. Among competitors in the compact sport-utility vehicle class, though, the '02 Escape offered a roomier-than-average passenger and cargo capacity.
Under the hood, the '02 Ford Escape offered the 2.0 liter, 4-cylinder Zetec with a 130-horsepower output. Buyers could upgrade to the 3.0 liter, 24-valve Duratec V-6, clocked at 200 horsepower and 200 lb.-ft. of torque.
Trims available on the 2002 Escape were the XLS and XLT; four-wheel drive was available as an option on both trims. ABS front-disc brakes gave the Escape great stopping power, and optional front-side airbags added security. Even with 4WD and all the extras, though, the 2002 Escape wasn't a great off-road vehicle. The Escape's real appeal was to drivers looking for reliable transportation and fuel efficiency.
