If you are searching for a new crossover SUV, we invite you to visit Gillespie Ford for our 2017 Ford Escape preview near Libertyville, IL.

The new Escape features numerous exciting updates, and our expert sales team is ready to answer your questions and show you available options.

2017 Escape Technology

As part of our 2017 Ford Escape preview near Libertyville, IL, we will explain in detail the benefits of new Escape technology. The available SYNC® Connect System takes connectivity to a new level. Using SYNC® Connect and a smartphone, you can remotely start, lock, unlock, and locate your vehicle. You can also schedule an engine start so your Escape is ready when you need to go. Escape technology also enhances your driving experience. With the available SYNC®3 System, you have access to a touchscreen, automatic updates, voice recognition, and user-friendly navigation assistance. For improved safety and protection, we recommend models with the Lane-Keeping System, a technology that uses gentle vibrations in the steering-wheel to warn the driver of unintentional lane drift. For added convenience, you should consider a model with Adaptive Cruise Control that uses radar to maintain a safe distance between your Escape and vehicles ahead.

Ford Escape Performance and Utility

We will also demonstrate performance and utility features during our 2017 Ford Escape preview near Libertyville, IL. Drivers considering the new Ford Escape can choose from three different engine options: the 2.5L iVCT I-4 engine and the new 1.5L and 2.0L EcoBoost engines with Auto Start/Stop Technology. Escape models equipped with Start-Stop technology save fuel by temporarily shutting off the engine when the vehicle is completely stopped, an ideal feature for drivers living in urban areas. Advanced utility features are another reason to consider the new Escape. Some models offer the Hands-Free Liftgate, with the intelligent access key on your person, simply wave your foot under the rear button and the liftgate opens.
