What are the engine choices for this model?

The 2017 Ford Escape offers three engine options. The first is the 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, good for 168 horsepower and 170 pound-ft of torque. The next option is new for 2017, a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine, rated at 179 horsepower and 177 pound-ft of torque. Lastly, there is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which produces 245 horsepower and 275 pound-ft of torque. All three engines are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive is optional on the higher trims.

How do I know which trim to go with?

There are three trim levels, the S, SE and Titanium. We recommend the SE trim because it offers you the option to upgrade the engine, add several packages, and add four-wheel drive, if needed. For starters, the SE comes standard with dual-zone automatic climate control, keyless entry, a 10-way power driver seat, upgraded upholstery, tinted rear glass, the Sync tech interface with smartphone integration, Bluetooth, satellite radio, and a six-speaker sound system. One of the more desirable packages is the Equipment Group 201A, which tacks on LED daytime running lights, roof rails, rear parking sensors, a 110-volt power outlet, the Sync 3 technology with an 8-inch touchscreen, a nine-speaker audio system with two USB ports, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. For drivers in colder climates, the Cold Weather Package is a necessity and it can be added to the SE trim as well.

Is the 2017 Ford Escape a safe vehicle?

Yes! The 2017 Ford Escape is very safe! It received a five-star overall rating in crash tests administered by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The Escape is designed with advanced technology to help keep you safe on the road. For example, the vehicle is equipped with Curve Control and Torque Vectoring Control. This technology senses if the vehicle is traveling too fast on a curve, and it will automatically slow the vehicle down and apply the brakes when needed. It will also transfer torque to the wheels that have more grip on the road, allowing for better traction. Another standard safety feature is Advance Trac with Roll Stability Control. This technology tracks wheel slip, understeering, oversteering and roll motion, and it helps the vehicle maintain control when it encounters different road conditions. More advanced safety features, such as blind spot monitoring and lane departure warning are also available in specific packages. The 2017 Ford Escape incorporates the latest safety technology to give you extra peace of mind.
