The compact crossover segment is white-hot in terms of competition— entries in this class work hard to deliver that perfect blend of utility, space, elevated seating positions, and some off-road capability. Yet, the 2017 Ford Escape easily makes a mark in this crowded market. For this year, expect even more connectivity features, the latest technologies, two new EcoBoost engines, and supreme comfort that create the ultimate compact crossover experience.
Behind the wheel of the 2017 Ford Escape, you’ll find a familiar blend of responsiveness, control, and athleticism. This character is further elevated with brand-new optional drive assists such as lane-keeping aid, improved Active Park Assist, forward collision warning, and adaptive cruise control. Thanks to these, the 2017 Ford Escape goes through urban, city, freeway, and rough terrains with ease. Drop the flat-folding 60/40 seatbacks, and you’ve got an impressive 68 cubic feet of storage space. Truly, the 2017 Ford Escape performs with verve anywhere you take it.
Step inside the 2017 Ford Escape, and you’ll find a fully-loaded crossover in terms of features and technology. For example, it is the first of the brand’s offerings to introduce Sync Connect and the latest Sync 3 telematics package that integrate support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Go for the luxurious Titanium models, and you also get a new capacitive touchscreen and voice recognition as standard. Convenience features such as vehicle location and remote locking/unlocking enhance ease of use.
