Redesigned for 2017, the new Ford Escape boasts an exciting, up-for-anything vibe. And now, thanks to
this year’s increased 61.7L fuel tank capacity, you enjoy more time on the road and spend less time at the pump.
The 2017 Ford Escape takes confident style into fresh territory with new exterior design cues, and forges ahead with improvements in driver and passenger convenience.
Exterior highlights include a bolder grille, sculpted hood and athletic stance. Sleek sideview mirrors and dynamic new wheel designs add adventure-bound appeal, while eye-catching LED taillights and available LED signature lighting take you from city streets to less-travelled terrain in style.
On the inside there’s a new centre console with convenient media-bin to stow your essentials, an ergonomically placed gear shifter, an easy-to-navigate centre instrument panel, and a stylish three-spoke steering wheel. Plus, of course, plenty of storage capacity to accommodate your next trip.
The 2017 Ford Escape is smarter than ever. The available technology features can do just about everything. Newly available SYNC® Connect* allows you to start, lock, unlock and locate your vehicle from virtually anywhere using your smartphone. Available SYNC® 3 features voice-activated technology that helps keep you connected while you keep your eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel90.
Escape tech features even help alert you to unintentional lane drift10 or assist with manoeuvres into tight parking spaces9.

Some drivers want maximum fuel efficiency, while others desire more punch at the pedal. That’s why the 2017 Ford Escape offers three engine choices: the 2.5L with intake variable cam timing (iVCT), standard in the Escape S (FWD); the highly efficient 1.5L EcoBoost®2, standard in Escape SE, and available on Escape S (4WD); and the higher-performance 2.0L Twin-Scroll EcoBoost® engine is standard in the Escape Titanium, and available in the Escape SE. Both EcoBoost® engines feature Auto Start-Stop technology.
The 2017 Ford Escape is always up to the task at hand, whether it’s towing a 3,500-lb. (1,587kg) trailer, accommodating a full complement of passengers and their cargo, or moving along confidently on rainy or snow-slick roads. The Ford Escape offers great versatility, with rear seats that fold easily when the need for cargo space takes priority. The available Intelligent 4WD System adjusts torque distribution front to rear to deliver optimum traction. Torque Vectoring Control helps balance the power through selective braking. And trailer sway control helps you tow with greater peace of mind19.
Thanks to the available foot-activated hands-free power liftgate, there’s no need to fumble for keys in the 2017 Ford Escape16. Its hands-free operation is especially helpful when your arms are full of items like grocery bags. With the available Intelligent Access key in your pocket or purse, kick your foot under the rear bumper and the liftgate opens. Also adjust the liftgate height, helpful for lower overhangs. Standard on Titanium model.
