All Star Ford loves keeping our customers in the loop about anything and everything related to vehicles. Before you know it, all of the 2017 vehicle models will be coming out and we will be saying goodbye to the 2016s. Introducing the newly refreshed 2017 Ford Escape!

The 1.5-liter EcoBoost will be standard in the SE and Titanium trim levels, and although the numbers aren’t yet set in stone, it is projected to produce 180 horsepower and 185 lb-ft of torque. The optional twin-scroll 2.0-liter EcoBoost has received new pistons and a redesigned exhaust manifold for improved efficiency and refinement; it is rated at 245 horsepower and an impressive 275 lb-ft. Returning for duty basically unchanged is the naturally aspirated 2.5-liter four-cylinder, which will be available only in the base S trim. All three engines are mated to a six-speed automatic.
The 2017 Ford Escape has the latest generation of Ford’s Sync Connect technology, which makes its worldwide debut in the 2017 Escape. The new Sync Connect allows owners to communicate with their Escape via a smartphone app, performing remote start and locking/unlocking operations. The app also permits owners to remotely schedule future starting times and to check the amount of fuel left in the tank, as well as receive vehicle reports concerning future service appointments such as oil changes. Additionally, owners will have access to a vehicle-locator function to help if they seem to have misplaced their Escape. The Connect features are available in vehicles equipped with the new Sync 3 system, which has better voice recognition, a more intuitive graphic interface, and faster performance.
Auto stop-start is standard on EcoBoost-equipped 2017 Escapes. The stop-start feature improves fuel economy in stop-and-go traffic by four to six percent! The auto stop-start features brings with it a unique battery, a beefier starter motor, and an auxiliary climate-control pump to keep the cabin fresh during long stops.
