2017 Ford Escape
Ford’s compact Escape crossover SUV is one of the top-selling SUVs on the market, and the redesigned 2017 model debuted in L.A. with a new exterior look, new interior, new engines and more driver-assistance technology. The updated exterior features a raised trapezoidal grille with horizontal bars to tie the Escape more closely to other Ford SUVs. Inside, a redesigned center console has the shifter repositioned to create a storage bin at the base of the center stack, and includes new cupholders and a pushbutton parking brake. The 2017 Escape will be the first vehicle to offer available SYNC Connect; drivers can use a smartphone app to remotely lock, unlock, locate and even start the vehicle. Available driver-assist technology includes enhanced active park assist, lane-keeping system, adaptive cruise control and forward collision warning with brake support.
