2014 Ford Escape Kansas City MO
Buyers in the market for an SUV are typically looking for three things in particular: extensive storage capabilities, superior fuel efficiency and extreme power. The 2014 Ford Escape in Kansas City, MO not only offers all three of those capabilities, but it does so at a price that’s extremely reasonable.
Loading and hauling in the Ford Escape has never been easier. The cargo area is not only spacious, but unbelievably accessible as well. It all starts with the power liftgate. Like many other SUVs, the liftgate can be opened manually, with the button on the key fob or buttons on the interior, but the Escape’s liftgate is also foot-activated. When the intelligent key is near the vehicle, you simply have to wave your foot under the rear bumper and the liftgate will rise for you. It’s perfect when your hands are full. Once the liftgate is opened, you have access to the 34.3 cubic feet of space behind the second row of seats. If the rear seat isn’t in use and you need more space for storing, simply collapse the 60/40 split-folding rear seatback to open the back of the Escape to 67.8 cubic feet of flat storage space. Believe us, there really isn’t much that you can’t fit in the back of the 2014 Ford Escape. When you want to keep items out of sight, there is a convenient hidden storage bin hidden under the rear floor mat. If versatile storage is at the top of your wish list, you will be sure to appreciate that it comes standard in the 2014 Ford Escape.
