2017 Ford Escape Review

The 2017 Ford Escape is a popular option for buyers in the Stroudsburg, East Stroudsburg, Easton, Nazareth and Lehigh Valley areas. The vehicle offers the power and capability of an SUV with a small enough footprint for easy maneuverability and parking. But that's not all the vehicle offers. 

Catch up on all the little details in this 2017 Ford Escape Review from Ray Price Stroud Ford.

2017 Ford Escape Offers Three Levels of Power and Efficiency 

The 2017 Ford Escape is offered with three engine options, which means you get three choices in power, efficiency, and capability. No matter which you go with, you'll still enjoy all the excellent maneuverability and pick up the vehicle offers, but you'll be able to choose just how much of each you need for your everyday use. 

Here's a brief breakdown of each of the three options you have to choose:       

  • The base trim level comes with a 2.5L i-VCT engine with front-wheel drive that produces up to 168 horsepower and gets an EPA-estimated 21 MPG in the city and 29 MPG on the highway.
  • The mid-level trim comes with a 1.5L EcoBoost engine with auto start-stop and either front-wheel drive or Intelligent Four-Wheel Drive. This option produces up to 179 horsepower and gets up to an EPA-estimated 23 MPG in the city and 30 MPG on the highway.
  • The top-level trim comes with a 2.0L Twin-Scroll EcoBoost engine with auto start-stop and either front-wheel drive or Intelligent Four-Wheel Drive. This option produces up to 245 horsepower and gets up to an EPA-estimated 22 MPG in the city and 29 MPG on the highway.

Technology for Safety, Convenience, and Entertainment in the Escape 

One of the things we love most about Ford vehicles is their commitment to having the best in technology. In the 2017 Ford Escape, there are technology advancements in safety, entertainment, and convenience, which means you get an excellent value for the price with all the added features. 

Here are a few of our favorite features offered in the 2017 model of the Ford Escape:       

  • The Adaptive Cruise Control with Collision Warning and Brake Support makes your morning commute a little less stressful since the system allows you to select both your speed and the maintained distance from the vehicle ahead. The technology will even alert you to a potential collision and will give you the full power of the braking system when you do stop.
  • The SYNC 3 infotainment system has all-new hardware and software with a design that's easy to use. The improved system offers fast and responsive performance, pinch-to-zoom, and integration with Siri that makes it easy to use your smartphone.
  • The Hands-Free, Foot-Activated Liftgate is just one more way the 2017 Ford Escape makes your life easier. The feature makes it easy for you to load up the trunk with your handful of groceries without rearranging. Simply kick your foot under the bumper and the liftgate will open in seconds.
