2017 Escape Technology

Technology is one reason drivers are asking about the 2017 Ford Escape preview near Arlington Heights, IL. The newest Ford Escape is equipped with numerous technology features, upgraded driving experience, and improved safety. Taking connectivity to the next level, the new Ford Escape offers the available SYNC® Connect system that lets drivers remotely lock, unlock, and start the Escape with a smartphone. Using the Connect system, you can also locate your vehicle in a busy parking lot and schedule a start time to warm up the engine. For advanced entertainment options, we recommend the SYNC® 31 system. Models with SYNC® 31 feature a capacitive touchscreen, automatic updates, voice recognition, and intuitive navigation assistance. Drivers who want enhanced safety should choose trims with the Lane-Keeping System2 that helps you correct unintentional lane drifting. The Ford Escape is also easy to park and maneuver thanks to the Active Park Assist2 system. 

Ford Escape Utility and Performance

Performance is another reason to visit our sales department for the 2017 Ford Escape. The new Ford Escape gives drivers three engine options: the standard 2.5L iVCT 4-cylinder engine and the new 1.5L and 2.0L EcoBoost® engines. The EcoBoost® engines offer additional efficiency with Auto Start-Stop Technology, which means your engine temporarily shuts off when the vehicle comes to a complete stop, and starts again when you release the brake. Auto Start-Stop is a great way to save on fuel costs, especially for drivers in urban areas. You can also find models that feature Hands-free Liftgate technology that streamlines loading and unloading the Escape.
