About Ford Escape

Strategically updated for 2017, the Ford Escape becomes an even more attractive alternative in the popular compact-SUV segment that includes the Honda CR-V, Kia Sportage, Hyundai Tucson, Mazda CX-5, Mitsubishi Outlander Sport and Toyota RAV4. Tasteful but effective exterior restyling enhances the Escape’s curb appeal while a comprehensive remake of its roomy, comfortable 5-passenger cabin elevates both visual sophistication and user-friendliness. Available in S/SE/Titanium trims and front- or all-wheel drive, the 2017 Escape also introduces a host of advanced tech touches including Ford’s Sync 3 infotainment system with Sync Connect along with support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. This versatile Ford offers three engines -- including two new, more powerful and more efficient EcoBoost 4-cylinders -- that help the Escape retain its best-in-class tow ratings.

"I have owned the Escape now for 1 year and 7 months and really cannot find anything wrong. The only thing I can mention is the rear seats are stiff, but nobody ever rides there and they are folded down many times for hauling large objects. The mpg has been averaging 23 and that is mostly city with no highway miles. We took a couple of road trips that average 32. It has the normally aspirated 2.5 liter engine without Eco boost, which gives plenty of acceleration. The Escape is a quality vehicle that anyone should like."

"I was relocated back to the U.S. after working 20 years overseas and I needed a reliable vehicle for 2 years that would still have alot of value when sold. The Ford 2017 S-Escape was perfect since the base model comes with Bluetooth, has a great sound system, quality interior, good gas mileage, and is rated highly among current owners. I used a mounted tablet with a mobile Wireless Access Point since the base model does not have a large screen. I will be returning overseas and am looking to sell this vehicle for the balance of the loan. 20,000."

"I drove all the competitors and went for the Escape Titanium with everything minus the huge sunroof. The tie breaker over other models was the ability to tow 2,500 pounds. No other comes close. I tow routinely 3 ATVs on a trailer and 3 adults. Gas is sucked at the rate of 14 MPG when doing so. I only go 2 or 3 MPH over the limit when towing. Love the phone app for remote starting, location tracking, fuel, etc. Did not realize how much I would use that. Free for 5 years. The start/stop has to be manually turned off every time you get in or it will stop the engine at every stoplight. Annoying. My BMW had it programmed to remember the last known position (off). Does well in the snow and sand. Great sound, easy to use touchscreen. The lane keeping assist works well and so do the other auto features. Spoiled when backing up now with the warnings. Almost getting complacent backing out of stalls. Only other thing I dislike is the kick to open tailgate has not been mastered yet. Maybe has something to do with the trailer hitch. I look like a fool fake kicking the hitch now and then. Near luxury small SUV at a great price after all the programs and military discount were rolled up. Traded my Toyota Venza in for it. Oh, and you cannot manually type in addresses in the GPS when the vehicle is in motion. You can enter via voice but that is about 75% successful. Lock it in before you go. The maps and software update when connected to a WiFi signal. In my garage it updates. Keeps maps fairly fresh but not as fresh as WAZE. It is also programmed to dial 911 and two contacts if you wreck the vehicle and the system is still alive with your phone. Pretty cool. Havent tried that yet. Front seats are long haul comfortable. I am around 240 pounds and close to 6 tall. Escape seats were better than the Explorer I test drove. Escape seats are larger in my opinion."
