Buying affordable coverage for a Ford Escape in Ohio can be pretty simple, but it depends on many different factors such as whether you own a home, the size of your vehicle, and driving violations and tickets. Drivers in Ohio will pay around $522 per year for Escape insurance, but that figure is an approximation using a 50-year-old single female driver with full physical damage coverage and $500 deductibles.
The issue that arises when projecting rates is that it's very likely that you're not a 50-year-old female, maybe you are married instead of single, or maybe you prefer to not insure for full coverage. Even a minor change in rating criteria or coverage limits can make a big difference in the policy cost.
Insurance is an individual thing, so the only real way to find the cheapest insurance price for your Ford is to do your own rate comparisons.
The trim level of your Escape will most likely have an effect on the yearly cost, so the price you will pay to insure a Escape XLS 2WD will be $58 cheaper than the insurance cost for the fancier Escape Limited 4WD trim level, as demonstrated by the prices below.
