2017 Ford Escape Headed to Texas Next Year
Since its introduction 15 years ago, the Ford Escape has been one of the bestselling vehicles in the compact SUV segment. Next year, the 2017 Ford Escape will arrive with updated styling, as well as new innovative features and technology that will make driving easier, safer and more efficient.
The most obvious change for the 2017 Escape is the bold new styling of the front and rear ends. New headlights, grille and bumper design give the Escape a more purposeful look, and the new taillights and liftgate give the versatile SUV a wider stance.
Two new EcoBoost engines will be offered in addition to the standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder – a turbocharged 1.5-liter and twin-scroll turbo 2.0-liter. The Escape will be the first Ford vehicle to make Auto Start-Stop standard when equipped with an EcoBoost engine, which works by shutting the engine off when idle to conserve fuel. In stop-and-go traffic, this results in a 4 to 6 percent improvement in fuel economy.
Newly available SYNC Connect will allow Escape owners to remotely start their vehicle, lock and unlock the doors, get their vehicle’s location and check vehicle information like tire pressure and fuel level from an easy to use smartphone app. Five years of SYNC Connect service comes complimentary, and the system integrates with the SYNC 3 infotainment system.
Today’s latest driver-assistance technologies will also be available on the 2017 Escape, including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with brake support, enhanced park assist, lane-keeping aid, blind-spot information system and a hands-free foot-activated liftgate.
Trim level options continue with S, SE and Titanium options, and a new Sport Appearance Package is available for SE and Titanium models. Six new wheel designs will be available, as well as three new colors – Canyon Ridge, White Gold and Lightning Blue.
