When the Ford Escape first arrived in 2001, it didn't have very many competitors. Now, having arrived to the 2017 model year, the Ford Escape has found itself in a more competitive segment than ever before. While many would think that this might have a negative impact on Ford's beloved Escape, that's simply not true. Having arrived with changes to its a-pillar and tailgate area, this year's model takes on a refreshed, yet still handsome, look. Further consider its array of interior updates and upgraded infotainment system and the 2017 Ford Escape becomes even more compelling than it already was.
The Escape's exterior and cabin aren't the only things that have undergone some changes for the new model year. Ford has also tinkered with its engine options. Replacing the turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine is a turbocharged 1.5-liter version. For the ultimate in power though, our team suggests opting for the potent 2.0-liter turbo engine. Offering more horsepower and torque than ever before, this engine is the way to go if you're looking for a truly thrilling ride.
Available in S, SE and Titanium trim levels, you can expect the Ford Escape to offer standard features such as cruise control, air-conditioning, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, a height-adjustable driver seat, a 60/40-split folding and reclining rear seat and a 4.2-inch central display featuring a rearview camera, the Sync tech interface with AppLink smartphone integration and Bluetooth handsfree connectivity. Of course, the most exciting update to the interior of this year's Escape is the availability of Ford's Sync 3 infotainment system.
