Here’s your first peek at the redesigned 2017 Ford Escape, Made-over from the inside out, the 2017 Escape will be available beginning Spring 2016.
ENHANCED ACTIVE PARK ASSIST
Say good-bye to parking anxiety. Available enhanced active park assist is designed to give you confidence during tight maneuvers and helps make parking a breeze. In addition to parallel parking, the enhanced system also includes park out assist and reverse perpendicular parking. Included in the Titanium Tech Package.
AUTO START-STOP TECHNOLOGY
Escape’s efficiency-minded attitude goes further with the addition of available Auto Start-Stop Technology, which can help reduce fuel consumption and vehicle emissions during city driving. When Escape comes to a complete stop and is idling, such as at a stop sign, the engine automatically shuts off and then seamlessly restarts when you release the brake pedal. Standard on the available 1.5L and 2.0L EcoBoost® engines.
This available customizable, driver-activated system can help prevent unintentional drifting out of your lane. Lane-keeping alert gently vibrates the steering wheel to let you know if you drift too close to the lane marker, while lane-keeping aid provides directional steering torque, seamlessly helping you guide the vehicle back to the center of the lane.
ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL
Available adaptive cruise control takes conventional cruise control to the next level. You can 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 to maintain the selected gap. After traffic has cleared, your vehicle resumes the preset speed and distance from the vehicle ahead.
Stay connected to your Escape on the go. Available SYNC® Connect allows you to start, lock, unlock and locate your vehicle from virtually anywhere using your smartphone. You can also schedule a specific time to start remotely so your Escape will be ready to hit the road as soon as you are.* Included with the SE Convenience Package and standard on Titanium.
CLASS-EXCLUSIVE* HANDS-FREE, FOOT-ACTIVATED LIFTGATE
Just one more way Escape makes a great partner in adventure. Thanks to the available hands-free, foot-activated liftgate, there’s no need to fumble for keys to load and unload cargo. With the Intelligent Access key in your pocket or purse, simply kick your foot under the bumper and the liftgate automatically opens and closes. You can also adjust the liftgate height, which is helpful for lower overhangs. Standard on Titanium models.
For 2017, Escape offers three exhilarating engine options: the standard 2.5L iVCT I-4 engine, and available new 1.5L and 2.0L EcoBoost® engines with Auto Start-Stop Technology. What they all have in common: plenty of power to go virtually wherever the road takes you.
