We have a dedicated and experienced sales team ready to tell you more about the new Escape.

2017 Escape Technology

Technology will be an important part of our 2017 Ford Escape preview near Antioch, IL. The new Ford Escape offers multiple technology features that keep you safe and enhance your driving experience. For drivers who want advanced connectivity, we recommend the available SYNC Connect system that lets you remotely start, lock, and unlock your Escape using your smartphone. You can also use this system to locate your vehicle—a useful feature in urban areas and crowded parking lots. For enhanced entertainment options many models also provide the SYNC 3 system that features touch screen, voice recognition, automatic updates, and easy-to-use navigation assistance. Escape technology also improves safety. Many models feature the Lane-Keeping System that uses soft vibrations in the steering wheel to alert the driver of unintentional lane drifting. For longer trips you will enjoy the available Adaptive Cruise Control system that uses radar to maintain a pre-selected distance between you and vehicles ahead.

Ford Escape Performance and Utility

Performance is another reason to check out the 2017 Ford Escape. The new Ford Escape offers three different engine options: the 2.5L iVCT I-4 engine and the recently added 1.5L and 2.0L EcoBoost engines with Auto Start-Stop Technology. When your vehicle comes to a complete stop, the EcoBoost engines shut off until you release the brake pedal. Start-Stop Technology is a great way to save money and reduce emissions. For added utility, many models also offer a Hands-free Liftgate. If your hands are full, and the intelligent Access key is on your person, just gently kick your foot under the rear button and the liftgate opens. This is just one of the many ways the Ford Escape modernizes utility.
