Ford Escape Technology Review

Ever since technology made its way into the automotive industry, cars have been evolving at a rapid pace. Each year brings new safety, performance, and entertainment features to your favorite vehicles. The 2017 Ford Escape, for instance, is packed with more gadgets than ever. 

Drivers in Stroudsburg, East Stroudsburg, Easton, Nazareth and Lehigh Valley can benefit greatly from all these added features. To show you, our team at Ray Price Stroud Ford have put together this review of our favorite Ford Escape technology features.

Smarter Safety Features

When it comes to Ford cars, safety is the top priority. When you get behind the wheel of the 2017 Ford Escape, you'll have more safety features than ever before to protect you and your passengers.

Available in the Escape is forward sensing, a feature that uses small cameras to monitor the proximity of vehicles in front of your own. This feature works hand in hand with adaptive cruise control to prevent frontend collision. If the feature determines an impact is imminent, it will apply automatic brakeforce.

Drivers will also have access to the available blind spot information system (BLIS®) with cross traffic alert. As the name suggests, BLIS® keeps track of what's traveling beside and behind your vehicle to ensure you don't cross traffic into another car.

Enhanced Handling

To further increase the safety and performance of your Ford Escape, several technology features have been included to improve handling. First and foremost, an intelligent four-wheel drive (4WD) system is available for off-road driving.

When intelligent 4WD pairs with the included traction and stability controls, your SUV will be able to handle on almost any road surface with precision.

Curve and torque vectoring controls are available as well. These features work to enhance stability when driving through a sharp turn. That way, you can maintain your speed while cornering safely.

A Comprehensive Entertainment Suite

As much as we want superior safety and handling when on the road, we also want a bit of entertainment. Luckily, the 2017 Ford Escape is equipped with a comprehensive media suite.

Available SYNC® 3 has a little bit of everything. It makes it easy to connect phones and MP3 players so that you have tons of music streaming options. Not only that, but you can fully integrate your phone and access your favorite apps on the LCD touchscreen.

The SYNC® 3 voice recognition system allows you to engage these features with just the sound of your voice, eliminating the need to take your hands off the steering wheel. 

A Sony® 10-speaker audio system is also available in the Escape. With its 620 watts of robust sound, you can really crank the music!
