2017 Escape Hoover

Get ready to enjoy the 2017 Ford Escape thanks to its excellent technology, safety, versatility, and performance. The Escape gives you plenty of reasons to love it, including things like affordability, options, features, and Ford reliability.

Advanced Safety Technology

If safety is your goal, you will appreciate everything that the 2017 Escape has to offer. Just a few include Adaptive Cruise Control, Collision Warning plus Brake Support, Enhanced Active Park Assist, the Lane-Keeping System, the Blind Spot Information System, and the Cross-Traffic Alert.

SYNC Connect and FordPass

SYNC Connect lets you use FordPass as a way to remotely access your Escape, including starting, unlocking, and locking it. You can also track its location or check the status of things like mileage and fuel level. This system even lets you schedule remote start times.

3 Engines

With three engines to choose from, you are sure to find your ideal powertrain for the Escape. You can pick from a 1.5-liter and a 2-liter EcoBoost and the standard 2.5-liter engine.

Auto Start-Stop Technology

Both of the EcoBoost engines in the Escape come with Auto Start-Stop Technology. This system automatically turns off your engine when you stop the vehicle and seamlessly restarts it as soon as you take your foot off the brake or step onto the accelerator. The result is lower emissions and better fuel economy.

3,500 Pounds of Towing

When configured with the 2-liter EcoBoost engine and the Class II Tow Package, the 2017 Escape can tow 3,500 pounds. To make towing easier, this package includes trailer sway control so you are set to move that trailer or small boat.

Interior Versatility

The interior of the Escape is designed to be as versatile as you need. It comes standard with a second-row seat that splits 60/40 and folds down. You can fit one or two passengers in the rear seat and still fold down the other half to expand the cargo space. Or fold down both and get 68 cubic feet and a flat loading floor.

Redesigned Interior

The adjustments Ford made to the Escape for 2017 are truly worth it. The new center console has a convenient media bin, a center instrument panel that is easy to navigate, and an available heated steering wheel.
