The Ford Escape, already a hugely popular SUV, is looking to win over even more fans with the newest model, which will arrive at dealerships this spring. The 2017 Ford Escape will boast significant changes and improvements over previous years, while still retaining all the features that make the model so great to begin with. These changes come in response to customer feedback, and include features like upgraded driver-assist technologies, new engines, and improved connectivity.

The 2017 Ford Escape will feature not one but two new EcoBoost engines, a 1.5 liter or 2.0 liter version, which work in tandem with the now standard Auto Start/Stop to improve mileage and decrease emissions. New technology will make driving the Ford SUV easier than ever, technology like Enhanced Active Park Assist, adaptive cruise control and collision warning, a lane-keeping system, and Ford SYNC Connect, which allows for remote start and monitoring of the vehicle using an app. There are also improvements to the interior, like the push-button parking brake, an all-new steering wheel with audio and temperature controls, and a re-positioned gear shifter, among many other features.
