The 2017 Ford Escape’s Technology
This new Escape isn’t only more fuel-efficient, it’s also smarter. The new-and-improved SYNC 3 infotainment system comes standard, offering users more features and quicker responses. Adaptive Cruise Control is available to make highway driving that much smoother and more relaxing, while the foot-activated power liftgate makes loading cargo a breeze. You can even use the available SYNC Connect app to remotely unlock your doors or schedule a time for your Escape to start by itself!
The 2017 Ford Escape’s Modern Design
The 2017 Ford Escape gets a total exterior refresh for a totally modern design. The bolder front grille, sharp creases, and LED tail lights work together to make the 2017 Escape stand out from the other SUVs on the road. You’ll also like that the available “Sport Appearance Package” adds a blacked-out grille, distinguished 19-inch black wheels, and tinted headlights to give your Escape a more powerful appearance.
The 2017 Ford Escape’s Safety Tech
Ford’s engineers must have worked overtime to ensure the new Escape is as safe as it is, and thus this compact SUV packs some serious safety tech. A modern Blind Spot Information System alerts you if vehicles are in your blind spot, while the attached Cross Traffic Alert notifies you if a vehicle is approaching as you reverse out of a parking space. And speaking of parking–the 2017 Ford Escape can actually park itself thanks to the available Enhanced Active Park Assist feature!
