Redesigned for 2017, the new Ford Escape boasts an exciting, up-for-anything vibe. Available features such as HID headlights, fresh new wheel choices and the Sport Appearance Package, add instant ready-for-whatever appeal. The interior is designed around you, with a host of comfort-minded amenities including an available heated steering wheel, available leather trim and more. 60/40 split folding rear seat backs, standard in all models, provide the people/cargo-carrying flexibility you look for in a versatile SUV.
The 2017 Ford Escape takes confident style into fresh territory with new exterior design cues, and forges ahead with improvements in driver and passenger convenience.
Exterior highlights include a bolder grille, sculpted hood and athletic stance. Sleek sideview mirrors and dynamic new wheel designs add adventure-bound appeal, while eye-catching LED taillights and available LED signature lighting take you from city streets to less-travelled terrain in style.
On the inside there’s a new centre console with convenient media-bin to stow your essentials, an ergonomically placed gear shifter, an easy-to-navigate centre instrument panel, and a stylish three-spoke steering wheel. Plus, of course, plenty of storage capacity to accommodate your next trip.
Available adaptive cruise control takes conventional cruise control to the next level. Select not only the desired speed, but also the space between your Escape and the vehicle in front of you, via preselected gap settings. When its radar sensor detects traffic slowing ahead, your vehicle also slows down. After traffic has cleared, your vehicle resumes the preset speed and distance from the vehicle ahead.
The 2017 Ford Escape features a new centre instrument panel, a front-mounted USB port with a pocket for devices, redesigned climate controls and refreshed, user-friendly design.
Six new stylish wheel choices:
1. 17-inch steel wheels with Sparkle Silver-Painted wheel covers come standard on S.
2. 17-inch Sparkle Silver-Painted Aluminum wheels are optional on S and standard on SE.
3. 18-inch Ultra Bright-Machined Aluminum wheels are optional on SE.
4. 18-inch Sparkle Silver-Painted Aluminum wheels are standard on Titanium.
5. 19-inch Machined Aluminum wheels with Luster Nickel Painted Spokes and Pockets are optional on Titanium.
6. 19-inch Ebony Black Premium-Painted Aluminum wheels are included with the SE Sport Appearance and Titanium Sport Appearance Packages.
Active Park Assist
This intelligent feature is designed with side parking sensors to give you confidence and help make perpendicular and parallel parking a breeze. While driving slowly near parking spots, activate this feature and Ford Escape will scan for available spaces. Ultrasonic sensors measure the distance from other vehicles, and once an appropriate spot is identified, you’re signaled to stop and accept the system’s assistance. With a few actions on your part – shifting, accelerating and braking – the vehicle can smoothly parallel park or back into a perpendicular parking space.
The 2.0L Twin-Scroll EcoBoost engine, available on SE and standard on Titanium, offers impressive performance to accelerate your adventure plus Auto Start-Stop Technology to help increase efficiency and reduce emissions. The 2017 Ford Escape 2.0L EcoBoost features an advanced Twin-Scroll turbocharger designed to transfer high-pulse energy to the turbine wheel, resulting in ultrafast time-to-torque for instantaneous power on demand.
