2017 Ford Escape - Exceeding Expectations

The 2017 Ford Escape in Peoria makes driving exciting with its stylish design, high-tech features and peppy power. For 2017, the compact SUV gets several notable upgrades, including a brand-new turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine, an updated 2.0-liter turbocharged motor and enhanced exterior styling that is sure to spark conversation.

Called a "compact-crossover favorite" in various 2017 Ford Escape reviews, the five-door SUV is available in three trims: S, SE, and Titanium. Many of the same convenient features carry over from its predecessor, including an available hands-free power liftgate with a foot sensor, an optional AWD drivetrain and a very roomy cargo bay, which offers ample storage space.

Driving Dynamics & Features

Pop the hood of the base S model and you'll find a 2.5-liter four-cylinder, while the top-of-the-line SE and Titanium models come with a 1.5-liter four that turns out 179 horsepower and 172 lb.-ft. of torque. An optional 2.0-liter turbocharged four can also be had on the two top trims. It generates 245 horsepower and 275 lb.-ft. of torque. Every 2017 Ford Escape in Peoria comes standard with a six-speed automatic transmission.

Technology & Space

The compact crossover comes well-equipped with standard equipment that includes such features as MyKey parental controls (which lets owners set driving parameter limits for younger drivers), a 60/40-split folding and reclining rear seat, and a 4.2-inch central display. On the entertainment end, Escape gets Bluetooth, a six-speaker sound system with a CD player and a USB port standard. On top of these benefits, it comes with full smartphone integration with the Sync 3 interface and the new FordPass with Sync Connect ownership app.

Next-Generation Safety

2017 Ford Escape reviews praise the vehicle's excellent safety features, which include a driver knee airbag, full-length side curtain airbags, traction and stability control, a rearview camera and blind spot monitors. Forward-collision alert and lane-departure warning systems are also available on the SUV.
