2017 Escape Technology and Performance

During our preview of the 2017 Escape, we will also touch upon technology features and performance levels. Modern drivers want efficiency, and the engineers at Ford have responded with comprehensive systems designed to offer more economy without sacrificing power. The 2017 Escape is available with three different engines: the 2.5L iVCT I-4 engine and the recently added 1.5L and 2.0L EcoBoost engines with Auto Start-Stop Technology. Ideal for driving in urban areas, Auto Start-Stop means the engine shuts off when the Escape is stopped, and restarts when the brake pedal is released. The new Escape also uses technology to enhance safety and convenience. Many models feature enhanced active park assist and a lane-keeping system that uses soft vibrations in the steering-wheel to alert the driver when unintentional drifting has occurred. You can also choose models with adaptive cruise control, a system that uses radar to maintain a pre-selected distance between you and vehicles ahead.
