New Features of Note on the 2017 Ford Escape

The 2017 Ford Escape sees a range of updates for this model year, including new powertrains for you to enjoy. While the 2.5-liter 4-cylinder from the 2016 model remains standard, the old turbocharged engines are replaced with the EcoBoost ones mentioned above, both of which now include Auto Start-Stop, which was not available on the 2016 Escape. The 2017 Ford Escape also takes the safety offerings of the 2016 model year to the next level. Newly available amenities include lane keeping warning plus assistance, adaptive cruise control, braking assistance and collision warning, adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams, and a driver fatigue alert system. These features join the already available ones, such as parking assistance and the Blind Spot Warning System.

Inside, the Escape has been redesigned, as well, with an electric parking brake replacing the manual one and freeing up space. There is also a new center console and dashboard. The 2017 Escape also has a new infotainment system, SYNC 3. This marks the first model year to offer this level of connectivity and gives you a range of features. FordPass is perhaps the most exciting, letting you use your smartphone to lock or unlock and even start your Escape. You will also notice a quieter cabin thanks to enhanced noise-reduction technologies.

Ford Escape's History: Getting to Know the SUV's Past

The Ford Escape made its official debut as a 2001 model year. While most similar vehicles were truck-like in nature, the Escape stood out by more closely resembling a car, including its independent suspension, rack-and-pinion steering, and unibody design. The first Escape had 33 or 63 cubic feet for cargo, depending on whether the seats were up. It used the same engine as the Focus, a 130-horsepower 2-liter with the option of a 200-horsepower 3-liter Duratec V6. All models were offered with front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive and had air conditioning, power accessories, remote keyless entry, a rear liftgate, a CD player, and more, with available features including cruise control and leather. The top-of-the-line Limited trim was added for 2003, and an Escape Hybrid joined the lineup for 2005.

The Escape entered its second generation for the 2008 model year with a range of interior updates. These included enhancements to the interior lighting system, instrument cluster, and center console, along with new seats made using eco-friendly materials. The exterior received new headlights and a new grille with redesigned wheel arches. The powertrains and transmission were updated for 2009, and Ford MyKey was added for 2010, designed for teen drivers.
