2017 Ford EscapeThe 2017 Ford Escape reviews indicate that has benefited from its refresh, and we think that Naperville and Oswego drivers will find a lot to like about this model. From the design to the infotainment system, Ford has taken almost every element of the Escape to new heights.

Bold New Design

“The updated 2017 Ford Escape heads to dealerships next month boasting a mid-cycle refresh that gives this popular compact crossover SUV a bolder exterior.” – Kelley Blue Book

The 2017 Ford Escape boasts upgraded curb-appeal thanks to a number of subtle exterior changes. The front and rear fascia have been revised, the hood redrawn, and new Canyon Ridge, White Gold, and Lightning Blue finishes have been made available. You can also take advantage of the new Sport Appearance Package, which adds Ebony Black or Piano Black accents and 19-inch Ebony Black alloy wheels housing 235/45 tires.

User-Friendly Interior

“Styling modifications accompany new interior components, a revised infotainment system, additional driver assistance and safety technology options.” – New York Daily News

2017 Ford Escape reviews always drew attention it its enhanced interior. Practical changes include the addition of an electronic parking brake to free up space and a revised center console with better storage cubbies. New technologies include Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, and a forward collision warning system with brake support.

Outstanding Drive

“The Escape also ticks the boxes that buyers have traditionally wanted ticked in generations past: power, handling and a comfortable ride.” – Autoweek

Autoweek was good enough to bring things back around to what really counts: the way the 2017 Ford Escape drives. It offers three engine options, from the 168-hp 2.5L iVCT four-cylinder right up to the 245-hp 2.0L Twin-Scroll EcoBoost, with efficiency reaching up to 23 mpg in the city and 30 on the highway. No matter your choice, the ride remains smooth, calm, and comfortable.
