Finding cheaper insurance for a Ford Escape can be really easy, but it depends on a whole bunch of factors such as whether the vehicle is new, if you have recent claims, and driving violations and tickets. Drivers pay approximately $997 each year to insure their Escape, but that price is an approximation calculated using a 40-year-old single male driver with full comprehensive and collision coverage and $1,000 deductibles.
The issue with using an average estimated rate is the likelihood you are not 40 and maybe not even a male, maybe you are married instead of single, or maybe your Escape is old enough that it doesn't require full coverage. Auto insurance requires individual risk assessment, so the only real way to find cheap insurance rates for your Ford is to put in the effort to do a thorough rate comparison.
The trim level of your Escape will influence the cost of coverage, so the price you will pay to insure a Escape XLS 2WD will be $100 less than the price to insure the fancier Escape Limited 4WD trim level, as shown in the table below.

The information below shows how choosing a deductible can influence insurance costs when researching cheap insurance for a Ford Escape. The information is based on a single female driver, full physical damage coverage, and no discounts are factored in.
As shown above, a 40-year-old driver could cut expenses by $350 a year by changing their physical damage coverage from a $100 deductible to a $500 deductible, or save $530 by using a $1,000 deductible. Younger drivers, such as the 20-year-old example, could potentially save $888 or more by using a higher deductible. If you do make the decision to raise your deductibles, it will be required to have enough savings set aside to allow you to cover the extra out-of-pocket expense. That is the one disadvantage of using higher deductibles.
Why you should be shopping around
Santa Ana auto insurance rates are based on many factors which can substantially change your annual premium. Simply having another birthday, buying a new vehicle, or getting a few speeding tickets may prompt premium changes that can cause some rates to be affordable when they were higher priced.
And not only may your rating factors change, but insurers file new California car insurance rates as often as every three months in order to offset underwriting gains or losses. Significantly higher losses may result in price increases, while lower claim levels can cause more affordable Escape insurance rates.
