Review: 2017 Ford Escape

The redesigned 2017 Ford Escape has arrived in Massillon, Ohio at George Waikem Ford. It's completely redesigned inside and out with brand-new style and all the best modern technology. Plus two new EcoBoost engines help make this the most fuel efficient Escape ever!
Brand New Style
The Escape gets a full design update for the new year. Up front, you'll get a new thin, two-bar grille with thin headlights and round front end. Out back, a new tail light design gives the Escape a sophisticated style.
Inside the Escape gets an upgrade with more soft-touch materials and premium fabric on the seats. The interior is laid out in more logical pattern. That means bigger buttons that are well organized and placed in the right spots. 
Using new acoustic glass, insulated front doors and higher end material, Ford made this the quietest interior ever. 
Great Technology 
Ford has always been the leader in modern vehicle technology, and that carries over with the 2017 Ford Escape. This is the first vehicle to feature the SYNC Connect system. This is a Smartphone app that allows you to unlock or lock the doors, start the engine, and even find your Escape in a parking garage. 
The Escape also comes with Ford's brand new SYNC 3 System. This is the easiest, most responsive SYNC system ever. Voice activation works better than ever. Saying "Call Mom" actually engages the car to call mom, not Dom, Tom, Rob or anyone else. 
SYNC 3 also features advanced music search and control. So using voice activation system, tell the car to play the Eagles and hear Hotel California. Or tell the Escape to play the 90s on 9 channel to hear your favorite 90s music on SiriusXM Satellite Radio. 
SYNC 3 includes advanced AppLink that allows you to sync your phone's favorite apps like Pandora, Spotify, NPR One, iHeartRadio, MLB At Bat and even the Domino's Pizza App. Using Siri Eyes Free iPhone integration you can make restaurant reservations, check sports scores and even send text messages with your voice. 
SYNC 3 includes available options like navigation, touch screen climate controls and more. 
Safety and Technology Blends
No vehicle offers a better blend of safety and technology. Ford makes your daily commute easier than ever with these new safety features: 
1. Enhanced parking assist. With this system, the Escape assists you parallel parking the SUV on the street, pulling out of tight spots and more. All you need to control is the brake, accelerator and shift knob. 
2. Lane-Keep system. If you start to unintentionally drift out of your lane, lane-keeping system will provide steering assistance and a number of audible chimes keep you alert. 
3. Adaptive Cruise Control and forward collision warning. Sensors around the car serve as an extra set of eyes. When you Escape is approaching a slow-moving vehicle, the vehicle will slow down and adjust your speed, drastically reducing your chance at accidents. 
Other options that carry-over from previous models include things like Blind Spot Information, Hill-Start Assist, Auto Headlight Controls, and hands-free lift gate. 
New Engines
Another highlight of the 2017 Ford Escape is two brand new EcoBoost engines. Ford also introduced auto start-stop technology in the new SUV. If you're sitting in traffic or waiting at a red light, the vehicle will shut itself off, drastically reducing your fuel usage and lowering the car's emissions. 
1.5L four cylinder EcoBoost produces 179 horsepower and up to 30 MPG highway. The new 2.0L Twin-Scroll Turbocharged EcoBoost engine produces 245 horsepower along with up to 29 MPG highway. 
The third option is a 2.5L engine with 168 horsepower and up to 29 highway MPG. The Escape is available in both front wheel and four wheel drive. 
New Sport Appearance Package
