2017 Ford Escape Performance & Economy

What will help you to power through the snow or escape to your favourite weekend summer getaway? The available 4WD and 6-speed automatic powertrain that is available with the 2017 Ford Escape. The only crossover in its segment which offers three engine choices, the Escape places the ante at a 2.5L Duratec 4-cylinder engine, producing 168hp and 170 lb-ft of torque. For the most fuel efficient option in the lineup, upgrade to the brand-new 1.5L turbocharged I-4 EcoBoost option, using just 7.8L/100km out on the highway. And lastly, for drivers who expect a little more power for a vehicle this size, the 2.0L EcoBoost delivers that each time, harnessing 245hp and 275 lb-ft of torque from its four cylinders at an extremely impressive 8.0L/100km highway.

2017 Ford Escape Interior Impressions

What you place inside the new Ford Escape is up to you; but with 1925 litres of space opened up with the rear seats folded down, the possibilities grow in step. But unlike some other entry-level or economy crossovers, where the cheapness of the inside materials quickly takes away from the splendour of the honeymoon period, the new Ford Escape incorporates quality materials and trims along its dash, seats, and doors. Other highlights include the now-standard rear-view camera on the 2017 base S model, a colour touch screen and available features such as a navigation system, panoramic sunroof, and Sony 10-speaker sound system.

2017 Ford Escape Safety

To compete in any of the family-dominated crossover segments, it’s absolutely essential to provide a strong foundation of safety that doesn’t leave any doubts. The 2017 Ford Escape continues in the proud tradition of safe Ford vehicles, starting with a solid base of 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes operating with stability and traction control, giving you the sure footing you need on treacherous road conditions. The rear-view camera and integrated blind spot mirrors are now standard across all 2017 models and trims, as well are features such as the SOS post-crash Alert System and Emergency Brake Assist System. While advanced features like the cross-traffic alert and rear parking sensors are optional add-ons for the Titanium versions.
