The 2017 Ford Escape
Since 2001, Ford has released many different models of the Escape. The 2017 Ford Escape has lived up to, and exceeded, all expectations. This sporty and sleek SUV features advanced technology, three different engine choices, and modern features. With an impressive performance and comfortable interior, this vehicle is fit for a variety of lifestyles.
Multiple Engine Choices and Overall Performance
The 2017 Ford Escape features three different engine choices that are all paired with a six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. The engine choices please those who are seeking a vehicle with good fuel efficiency, or something a little more powerful. The engine choices include:
- 2.5 L with intake variable cam timing (iVCT)
- Efficient 1.5 L EcoBoost®
- High-performance 2.3 L Twin-Scroll EcoBoost®
The EcoBoost® engines come fully-equipped with Auto Start-Stop technology, to improve performance. The 2017 Escape also has a bigger fuel capacity, with a 61.7 L fuel tank. This vehicle also offers Torque Vectoring Control, which balances the distribution of engine torque to the front wheels equally and continually. The distribution of engine torque between the wheels depends on the driving conditions and traction.
The Torque Vectoring Control improves safety, as it helps the Escape to stay on the planned path, while driving on wet or slippery surfaces. It also features trailer sway control, so you can drive with a peace of mind while you tow up to 3,500 lbs.
