2017 Escape Technology and Performance

As part of our 2017 Ford Escape preview near Waukegan, IL, we will introduce drivers to the innovative performance and technology features found in the new Escape. Recognizing that modern drivers want more fuel efficiency, Ford is offering is the Escape with two new engines and multiple technology features designed to reduce emissions and save on fuel costs. You can choose the standard 2.5L iVCT I-4 engine, or for more efficiency you should consider the new 1.5L and 2.0L EcoBoost engines with Auto Start-Stop Technology. We waste unnecessary amounts of fuel idling in front of stoplights and stop signs, and Start-Stop Technology solves this problem by temporarily turning off the engine when the Escape is completely stopped. Ford Escape technology also offers a new level of connectivity. Choose a model with the SYNC Connect System, and you can use your smartphone to remotely lock, unlock, and start your Escape.
