We've seen plenty of movies about prison breaks. "The Defiant Ones", "Escape from Alcatraz", "The Shawshank Redemption", "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" and others all have us glued to the edge of our seats. Closer to home, we look to escape the everyday, dreaming of leaving behind all our worldly cares, bills, and obligations. Before you start digging a tunnel under your bathroom floor, may we suggest a better escape from Brockton? Try the 2016 Ford Escape, available now at Grieco Ford in Raynham, MA.

2016 Ford Escape Specs

The 2016 Ford Escape is a five-passenger crossover that's related to the larger 2016 Ford Explorer. It's available in three trim levels (S, SE, and Titanium). With a choice of engines and the option to upgrade to a 2.0 liter EcoBoost inline four-cylinder, as well as the six-speed SelectShift® automatic transmission, you get power and economy in one package. Many crossovers will seat five, but not many will do it this comfortably.

If you're worried about storage, don't be. There is 34.3 cubic feet of cargo space (67.8 cubic feet with the second-row seats down), and you can tow up to 3,500lb by adding a Class II Trailer Tow Package to the turbocharged 2.0L EcoBoost engine. Don't worry about safety, either, since Ford has taken the worry out of driving with torque vectoring control, standard AdvanceTrac®, which includes RSC® (Roll Stability Control™), and Curve Control.

Escape to the White Mountains

Plenty of places claim to offer something for everyone, but few places deliver like the White Mountains of New Hampshire. It's not a short drive -- Lincoln, NH is about three hours north of Brockton on Interstate 93 -- but that's no problem. The Sony audio system in the 2016 Ford Escape will keep your ears and your mind occupied, while available SiriusXM Travel Link and SiriusXM Traffic will keep you on track to your destination. If you're looking for points of interest, Ford Sync3 has a fast processor, and the fact that maps are stored locally means you won't get lost even if your signal is iffy. 

While we've found that the front-wheel drive is perfectly capable for everyday driving, we're partial to the four-wheel drive available on the Escape SE and Escape Titanium; we like the way it handles rain-slicked roads, or the snow and ice you're likely to encounter if you're visiting one of the area's ski resorts in the winter time. If you're going in the warmer months, it'll even make short work of New Hampshire's legendary Mount Washington, to say nothing of the gravel and dirt roads around the local campgrounds. The tow package comes in handy for a small equipment trailer if you're bringing bikes, coolers, or other bits and pieces you don't necessarily want to keep in the back, and we also suggest talking to the Grieco Ford parts department if you want OEM and aftermarket Ford accessories like cargo mats for muddy hiking boots, a bike rack, or a roof rack for canoes, kayaks and the like.

Maybe you're not the outdoorsy type, or maybe you are but you need a quicker escape than the White Mountains. If that's the case, don't fret; the 2016 Ford Escape is just as capable for short trips 'round town or going off the beaten path closer to Brockton. But if you're plotting your escape, your best place to start is right here at Grieco Ford of Raynham.
