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 Ford Escape, for instance, is packed with more gadgets than ever.

Drivers in Stroudsburg, East Stroudsburg, Easton, Nazareth, and Lehigh Valley, PA, can benefit greatly from all these added features. 

To show you, our team at Ray Price Stroud Ford has put together this review of our favorite Ford Escape technology features.

Smarter Ford Safety Features

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

Available in the Escape is Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, 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 front-end collision. If the feature determines an impact is imminent, it will apply automatic brakeforce.

Drivers will also have access to the available BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert. As the name suggests, it keeps track of what's traveling beside and behind your vehicle to ensure you don't cross traffic into another car.

For matters of parking, there's the available Active Park Assist 2.0 system, which provides automated assistance whether you're trying to wiggle your way into a parallel parking spot or a perpendicular parking spot. A few other traits that will go a long way towards keeping you safe and reassured on the road would be:

  • Auto High-Beam Headlamps
  • Lane-Keeping System
  • Rear View Camera

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 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. The systems provide the added traction by working together to read and predict terrain. Once the system determines the best usage of power, it distributes this power to the necessary wheels, whether it be the front two, the rear two, or some combination of the four.

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.

Escape Technology: Comprehensive Entertainment

As much as we want superior safety and handling when on the road, we also want a bit of entertainment. Luckily, the 2020 Ford Escape is equipped with a comprehensive media suite.

Available SYNC® 3, which is your infotainment interface, has a little bit of everything. When paired with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, you have the ability to connect your smartphone to the SUV. Once connected, you have a host of accessible features to choose from, such as music, podcasts, phone calls, text messages, and more.

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. This is an especially handy trait when you're road-tripping and need to pull up directions to your next pit stop. In this scenario, your Escape will benefit from having WAZE technology.

WAZE is a navigation-oriented application that does more than just outline the path you'll need to follow. The system will help you avoid traffic, too. If a sudden accident occurs up ahead, WAZE will provide a real-time update and re-route you so that you're not losing time. It will also alert you to road hazards, traffic jams, and more!

A B&O™ Sound System by Bang & Olufsen places 10 speakers throughout the cabin of your Ford Escape. With the inclusion of a subwoofer, you can get your SUV rocking with your favorite playlist.

Amazon & Ford Escape Come Together

If you have Smart Home devices in your house, you can keep these connected to your 2020 Ford Escape as well. Ford+Alexa is an ingenious arrangement that gives you the chance to turn off your lights or start the oven from the comfort of your car while driving home. You can also receive key updates on traffic or access Amazon Prime on the go.

Finally, if you're a member of Amazon Prime, there's an in-car delivery system available for your Ford. When you set this up, you can actually have packages delivered right to your vehicle while you're at work, at home, or anywhere else.

You just download a Key application and link it to your FordPass Connect™ application, which we'll discuss more in the next section. When the package arrives, which you can track using your phone, the Amazon delivery person will drop it off inside your vehicle before shutting and locking the doors!

Remote Connectivity

FordPass Connect™ is a system that comes into play a lot for the 2020 Ford Escape. It's an application you download on your phone and once you've signed up by inputting basic information, you can access your vehicle from virtually anywhere.

A few benefits of FordPass Connect™ include:

  • Locking, unlocking, and starting your vehicle remotely
  • Locating parking spots in advance
  • Comparing fuel prices of nearby gas stations

You'll also receive reminders about necessary services for your SUV like oil changes, tire rotations, or something else. As you collect points on the application, you can then cash those points in to receive a better value of the service of your Ford Escape or on the purchase of your next Ford model!
