Design of Ford Escape

The available Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert uses radar to identify a vehicle detected in your blind spot and alerts you with an indicator light in the appropriate exterior mirror. Ford Escape for 2017 reveals an unstoppable new style that expresses your adventurous spirit, beginning with a dynamic grille, sculpted hood and athletic stance. Once inside, you'll notice the interior is no less impressive, redesigned with ergonomic features and amenities around your needs for comfort and convenience. 2017 Escape features a new center console with convenient media bin to stow your essentials, an ergonomically placed gear shifter, an easy-to-navigate center instrument panel, and a stylish 3-spoke steering wheel with available heat feature. And, of course, there's plenty of cargo-carrying capacity to accommodate your next adventure.

With its quick, precise steering and relatively sharp reflexes, the 2017 Ford Escape is one of the segment's top athletes. Some compact crossovers feel tall and bulky from the driver seat, but the Escape feels more like a sporty hatchback with a higher center of gravity. The driving position is also elevated, of course, so you get that SUV-style commanding view of the road. Antilock disc brakes, traction and stability control, front-seat side airbags, a driver knee airbag and full-length side curtain airbags are standard on the 2017 Ford Escape. Ford's MyKey helps set safety parameters by parents for new drivers.
