Safe and Smart Package
The available Safe and Smart Package on the 2019 Ford Escape is what it says it is – Safe and Smart. 
On SE trims and above, this package includes:
  • BLIS (Blind Spot Information System)
  • Lane-Keeping System
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Forward Collision Warning, 
  • Auto high-beam headlamps
  • Auto rain sensing wipers
  • Panel roof
With Adaptive Cruise Control, you set the speed and the distance between you and the vehicles around you. When traffic ahead slows down, your Escape automatically slows down. When the traffic speeds up, the same thing happens. 
Forward collision warning with brake support can alert you to a potential collision with the vehicle ahead. If you don’t react in time, the brakes will precharge and increase sensitivity, providing full responsiveness when you do brake.
Lane-Keeping System vibrates the steering wheel when you drift too close to a lane marker. It can even sway you back into your lane. 
BLIS uses radar to identify a vehicle detected in your blind spot and alerts you with an indicator light in the appropriate exterior mirror.
Ford SYNC 3 with Alexa
Ford SYNC 3 now includes an app to tap in to your Amazon Alexa. By using the Ford+Alexa app and connecting via available SYNC 3 AppLink, you’ll have access to voice navigation, traffic information, over 30,000 skills, Amazon Prime shopping and can even control your supported smart home devices. Stay connected, no matter where you are.
EcoBoost Engine Options
Under the hood, the Ford Escape is more capable than ever thanks to the Ford EcoBoost engines
There are two optional EcoBoost engines. Option one is a 1.5L EcoBoost with a maximum 30 highway miles per gallon and 179 horsepower. 
There’s a more powerful 2.0L EcoBoost with 28 highway miles per gallon and 245 horsepower. 
The standard non-EcoBoost engine 2.5L engine gets 29 miles per gallon and produces 168 horsepower.
Escape Titanium has a maximum towing capacity of 3,500 lbs. when equipped with the 2.0L EcoBoost® Class II Trailer Tow Package. Trailer sway control technology and an auxiliary transmission oil cooler are included in the package when equipped with the 2.0L EcoBoost engine. When trailer sway is detected, the system automatically takes measures, such as applying precise braking or reduced engine torque, to help keep both the vehicle and the trailer under control. 
Escapes are available in both front wheel drive and four wheel drive.
