The Ford Escape is a demonstrative representative of a highly popular 5-door compact crossover SUV class. And one of the most frequently asked questions is how big it actually is?

Well, it is not especially big but big enough for a compact crossover SUV. Here are the exact figures:

Exterior

External dimensions of the new 2017 Ford Escape are as follows: wheelbase – 105.9 in., vehicle length – 178.1 in., vehicle height (without options) – 66.3 in., vehicle width with mirrors – 81.8 in., vehicle width without mirrors – 72.4 in., vehicle width with mirrors folded – 75 in., front track – 61.5 in., and rear track – 61.6 in. Almost every dimension is smaller than of the Mazda CX-5, for instance, which means the Ford Escape is more compact.
