Excitement Builds Around Canada’s Number One Selling SUV; New Features Added to 2017 Ford Escape

image00

The 2017 Ford Escape, which is also Ford’s second best-selling vehicle in Canada behind the F-Series, just got even better! The updated interior now provides more center console room to store your cell phone, wallet, beverage and more. The SUV offers 25 percent more storage in the front row and 15 percent more storage overall.

What prompted the change? Zulf Ali, senior interior design expert at Ford Motor Company, was driving his wife’s 2014 Escape when he noticed he did not have any space to store his cell phone, wallet or sunglasses. After voicing his concern to his team, he was presented the opportunity to redesign the interior of the 2017 Escape. Ali refers to the center console area of a vehicle as “Manhattan real estate” due to its small yet valuable space. Ali also points out that now more than ever, most people carry a cell phone or other media devices, and Ford vehicles should accommodate the modern driver with plenty of storage space for these items.

To gain additional front-row storage space, a highly innovative change to the Escape took place: the traditional parking brake handle located between the two front seats was replaced with an all-new electronic parking brake button. This new addition made room to add a media bin that features a lighted USB port and a 12-volt power outlet. The main center console was expanded to allow 50 percent more storage than the previous model. Two additional storage bins were also placed in front of and behind the gear shifter.

In addition to interior upgrades, the 2017 Escape has several other new features that greatly improve the overall driving experience. Under the hood, two new EcoBoost four cylinder engines were added, a 1.5-litre (179 hp / 177 lb-ft.) and 2.0-litre (245 / 275). The most noticeable changes to the exterior are a new hexagonal grille, new headlights and a new front bumper design. New tech features including Adaptive Cruise Control, Engine Start/Stop and SYNC connect were also implemented. The 2017 Escape is making its way to dealerships this summer.

The 2016 Ford Escape: the fun solution to the crossover SUV

2016 Ford Escape

Crossovers and SUVs alike have traditionally been focused on the functionality of the vehicle instead of the aesthetics. True, there have been advancements in the overall sculpting and the trends within the market have driven for a level of upgrades and revisions, but the overall look and feel of the SUV and Crossover for many has been a bit discouraging. The new 2016 Ford Escape answers the demands of the market to provide a sleek, handsome, and modern crossover with a competitive level of power, performance, and safety features. Based upon the next-generation design of the Escape, the 2016 Model expounds upon the innovation and engineering.

Trim Options

There are three trim levels available for the 2016 Ford Escape. These are the S, SE, and the Titanium trim.  Out of the three options, the primary difference is in the Engine available. The Titanium has the option of a 2.0L Twin Scroll Eco Boost engine with Auto Start, the SE offers a 1.5L Eco Boost with Auto Start-stop, and the S model has a 2.5L iVCT engine available. Comparatively, the estimated MPGs of all three trim options are about the same and only the power and towing capabilities fluctuate for the selected trims. That being stated, the engine is not the only consideration one should have when picking their model. Depending on the trim selected certain features may be standard or optional including:

  • BLIS with Cross Traffic Alert
  • HID headlamps
  • 18 or 19” wheels
  • LED Tail lamps
  • Rear View Camera
  • Vista Roof
  • Sync 3 Technology
  • Hand-free, foot activated lift gate

In addition to the features available on the three selected trims, there are a number of packages and accessories available. Check with your dealership about the options available to meet your style and driving needs.

Interior Elements

To give the 2016 Ford Escape a more luxurious feel, the interior space of the crossover has been equipped with soft touch materials. Unlike other vehicles in its class which offer hard plastics, the softer material yields a more upscale persona although it is still well within the economy class vehicle range.  The front dash has not abandoned the CD player but has chosen to integrate it with the infotainment design. This integration is an ideal merger, especially for those which have a library of existing music and do not wish to sync certain CDs with their smartphone or the infotainment system.

In regards to the infotainment system, the 2016 Ford Escape has added the availability of the SYNC 3 system. This system allows for the driver to use certain applications and social media functions hands free. The voice activated system allows for a safer alternative in areas where hands free messaging is allowed. In addition to the hands-free features, available OnStar as well as GPS navigational assistance can further enhance the driver experience and safety.

Safety Features

Where the exterior sculpting may lead to the perception that the vehicle is a fun toy, the structure is solid and safe. Built upon a frame that diverts the majority of a forward collision away from the passengers to the frame, as well as strategically placed airbags, the Ford Escape has earned four out of 5 stars from IIHS.

Are you interested in a fun crossover vehicle? The 2016 Ford Escape may be for you.

The 2016 Ford Escape presents a vehicle which has the curvature and curbside appeal desired in the modern vehicle while at the same time the power and performance expectations of a Crossover.
