Prepare for Adventure – The New 2017 Ford Escape Has Arrived
The 2017 Ford Escape is offered with a trio of powerful and efficient four-cylinder engines to meet the needs of any driver.
- 2.5L iVCT / 168hp + 170 lb-ft / 11.1L/100km city / 8.1L/100km highway
- 1.5L EcoBoost / 179 hp + 177 lb-ft / 10.2L/100km city / 7.8L/100km highway
- 2.0L EcoBoost / 245 hp + 275 lb-ft / 10.6L/100km city / 8.0L/100km highway
All engines are paired with a smooth 6-speed automatic with paddle shifter if the mood strikes you. All-wheel drive is also available so you can sail through any weather.
The new 2017 Escape isn’t just more fuel efficient either, it’s also smarter. The latest SYNC 3 infotainment system comes standard, offering users more features and faster responses. Adaptive Cruise Control is also available to make highway driving smoother and more relaxing, while the foot-activated power liftgate makes loading cargo a snap. You can even use the available SYNC Connect app to remotely unlock your doors or schedule a time for your Escape to remotely start!
The 2017 Ford Escape features a total exterior refresh to create a totally modern design. A bolder front grille, sharp creases and LED tail lights all work together to make the 2017 Escape stand out from the crowd. And if that isn’t enough, the available “Sport Appearance Package” adds unique 19-inch black wheels, tinted headlights, and a blacked-out grille to give your Escape a more menacing appearance.
Ford’s engineers worked overtime to ensure the new Escape is as safe as possible, and thus this compact SUV packs some serious safety tech. The Blind Spot Information System alerts you if vehicles are in your blind spot, with the attached Cross Traffic Alert notifies you if a vehicle is approaching as you reverse out of a parking space. Speaking of parking, the 2017 Escape can even park itself thanks to the available Enhanced Active Park Assist.
