2017 Ford Escape news, pictures, specifications, and information
The popular Ford Escape SÚV is newly engineered to make customers feel unstoppable - wîth even more driver-assist technologies to help enable safer and easier driving, new mobile connectivity that allows owners to interact wîth their vehicle from anywhere through a smartphone app, and two new efficient EcoBoost® engines.

The new Escape is the first Ford vehicle in the world wîth available SYNC® Connect, allowing users to unlock doors, check fuel level and even locate where a vehicle is parked.

To help drivers feel more confident behind the wheel, driver-assist technologies available for the new Escape include adaptive cruise control and forward collision warning wîth brake support, a lane-keeping system and enhanced active park assist. That's all packed in a vehicle that has been redesigned from the inside out, including a driver and front passenger area upgraded wîth more storage space and mobile device charge ports.

'The compact SÚV §egmènt is the largest and most competitive in the Únited States, and the new Escape delivers even more of what our customers want - more technology they can really use to make their daily drive safer and easier,' said Joe Hinrichs, Ford president, The Americas.

SYNC Connect keeps drivers in touch wîth remote vehicle access

Need to lock your new Escape from across town? There is an app for that.

With SYNC Connect, owners can remotely start their vehicle and schedule future starts, as well as lock and unlock their Escape using their smartphones. The technology provides vehicle location, as well as key vehicle information such as tire pressures, battery and fuel levels.

SYNC Connect, available wîth SYNC® 3 for the new Escape, comes wîth complimentary activation for five years. A user enables the system through a two-step authentication process designed to protect personal information. SYNC 3 features faster performance, conversational voice recognition, intuitive smartphone-like touch screen and easier-to-understand graphical interface.

Driver-assist technologies SÚV drivers want
Other driver-assist features available help make the daily commute safer and easier for drivers of the new Ford Escape:
•Adaptive cruise control and forward collision warning wîth brake support: Sensors detect when Escape is approaching a slow-moving vehicle, and adjust cruise control accordingly
•Enhanced active park assist: Provides §teering assistance to park the vehicle in a parallel or reverse perpendicular parking spot, and pull out from tight parallel parking spots; driver controls brake, accelerator and shifter. Technology includes side park distance control
•Lane-keeping system: The system includes lane-keeping alert, which alerts drivers when they drift unintentionally from their lane, and lane-keeping aid, which provides §teering assistance to guide an unintentionally drifting vehicle back into its lane
•Driver Alert System: Úsing data from the lane-keeping system, the Driver Alert System can detect signs of fatigued driving and provide a warning on the instrument cluster

Already available driver-assist features for the new Escape include:

•Blind Spot Information System wîth cross-traffic alert: BLIS® can alert drivers when a vehicle enters the defined blind spot in a neighboring lane. An indicator light provides a warning in the side mirror corresponding to the side on which the vehicle is approaching
•Hill-start assist: The feature holds the vehicle stationary on a hill long enough for the driver to transition from brake to gas pedal
•Auto high-beam control: System automatically switches from high to low beams, and vice versa, depending on ambient lighting
•Hands-free, foot-activated liftgate: Opens liftgate wîth the simple kick of a key fob-carrying customer's foot beneath rear bumper - perfect for those whose hands are loaded wîth gear

Two new EcoBoost engines wîth Auto Start-Stop

Escape is the first Ford vehicle to make Auto Start-Stop standard wîth either of two EcoBoost engines new to the model - a 1.5-liter and 2.0-liter twin-scroll. The technology senses when the vehicle is sitting idle and shuts off the engine to conserve fuel, resulting in a 4 percent to 6 percent improvement in fuel economy in stop-and-go traffic. The engine restarts automatically - in less than half a second - when the driver releases the brake pedal.

'Auto Start-Stop is the equivalent of turning off the lights when you leave a room, or turning off a water faucet when you're done washing dishes,' said Milton Wong, Escape chief engineer. 'It's a high-tech approach to more efficient driving.'

Escape SE and Titanium trim levels come standard wîth the new 1.5-liter four-cylinder EcoBoost, while the powerful new twin-scroll 2.0-liter EcoBoost is optional. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard across the line, wîth new paddle-shift technology available for Escape SE and Titanium.

The twin-scroll turbocharged 2.0-liter EcoBoost delivers 245 horsepower and 275 lb.-ft. of torque, along wîth greater efficiency and improved noise, vibration and harshness performance. New pistons provide a higher, more efficient compression ratio, and a newly designed, integrated exhaust manifold is optimized for the twin-scroll turbo system.

The aluminum-block, twin-cam 1.5-liter EcoBoost wîth integrated exhaust manifold is projected to deliver horsepower and torque output comparable to the 1.6-liter - an expected 180 horsepower and 185 lb.-ft. of torque.

Along wîth the new EcoBoost offerings, the 2.5-liter i-VCT four-cylinder engine carries over as standard equipment for the Escape S series.

Three trim levels, wîth new Sport Appearance Package


Escape customers can continue to select from S, SE and Titanium trim levels, as well as a new Sport Appearance Package available for SE and Titanium.

Charcoal Black wîth subtle Deep Space black trim is available for Escape Titanium. Salerno leather seats feature a unique horizontal pattern. Titanium customers can also opt for Medium Stone seats to contrast wîth the black interior.

Escape will be offered in three new colors - Canyon Ridge, White Gold and Lightning Blue. Six new wheel designs are also available.

Built to lead in a growing §egmènt

Overall SÚV sales continue to trend higher - both in North America and around the world. SÚVs now account for about one third of the Ú.S. auto , a number Ford projects will grow to 40 percent by 2020. In the Únited States, SÚV sales are expected to exceed 5 million units in 2015 for the first time ever.

Small SÚVs play an increasingly larger role, and Escape remains one of the most popular. Since its launch in 2000, more than 3 million units have been sold in the Únited States, including a record 306,212 Escape vehicles in North America in 2014. Ford expects Escape sales this year will exceed that figure.
