1.5L EcoBoost® with Auto Start-Stop

Standard on SE and Titanium, the 1.5L EcoBoost® is the most efficient Escape engine.* It combines two technologies - turbocharging and direct injection. It also features Auto Start-Stop Technology to help reduce emissions and conserve fuel.

Auto Start-Stop Technology     

The efficiency-minded attitude of the Escape goes further with the addition of available Auto Start-Stop Technology, which can help reduce fuel consumption and vehicle emissions during city driving. While the vehicle is stopped, the engine automatically shuts off and then seamlessly restarts when you step on the accelerator or when your foot leaves the brake pedal. Included with the available 1.5L and 2.0L EcoBoost engines.

2.5L i-VCT

The new 2.5L engine in the Escape S model features intake variable cam timing (iVCT) technology. iVCT varies valve timing along the entire power curve to suit the driving condition, helping improve performance from low-end acceleration to high-end cruising.

6-Speed SelectShift® Automatic Transmission

The 6-Speed SelectShift transmission when in sport mode (S) lets you override automatic operation and enjoy the sporty feel of manual control over gear selection. Escape with EcoBoost®also has race-inspired steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters for changing gears easily and quickly.

Curve Control and Torque Vectoring Control

When you're approaching a curve on wet or dry pavement, standard electronic Curve Control can sense if you're going too fast and slow you down using throttle reduction and anti-lock braking. Once you're into the curve, G-forces tend to transfer more traction to the outside tires than to the inside ones. Standard Torque Vectoring Control enhances that by transferring torque to the wheels that have the most grip, reducing understeer and forcing the front end to hug the inside of the curve.

AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™

Standard AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™ (RSC®) uses two gyroscopic sensors to monitor yaw and roll rates. This allows AdvanceTrac with RSC to help you maintain control whenever it detects wheelslip, understeer, oversteer or roll motion. It also helps maintain control in various road conditions such as ice, gravel or rain. AdvanceTrac with RSC also features Curve Control, which will slow the vehicle down when it senses that it's going too fast for a particular curve.39 Trailer Sway Control, too, is included in the Class II Trailer Tow Prep Package.


Life on the road made easier.

2017 Escape is smarter than ever. The available technology features can do just about anything - from alerting you to unintentional lane drifting,10 to auto-maneuvering you into (or out of) a tight parking spot, to opening the available hands-free, foot-activated liftgate with a gentle kick under the rear bumper. 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 wheel.

 Adaptive Cruise Control and Collision Warning with Brake Support

Go beyond conventional cruise control. Available Adaptive Cruise Control lets you select the speed and distance you want to maintain from the vehicle in front of you. When traffic ahead slows down, you automatically slow down, and later resume the preset speed when traffic picks back up. Collision Warning with Brake Support can alert you to a potential collision with the vehicle ahead. If you don't react in time, the brakes will precharge and increase sensitivity, providing full responsiveness when you brake.

Lane-Keeping System

The available driver-activated Lane-Keeping System can alert you to unintentional lane drifting.* Choose the Lane-Keeping Alert mode that vibrates the steering wheel when you drift too close to a lane marker - or the Lane-Keeping Aid mode that activates a directional steering torque to help guide you back to the center of the lane. Or combine the effects of both modes: Continue drifting after the steering torque is activated and the steering wheel adds the vibrating sensation.

  Enhanced Active Park Assist

Available Enhanced Active Park Assist, included in the Titanium Technology Package, is a multifeatured system designed to help you say goodbye to parking anxiety in virtually any situation.
(1) Parallel Parking scans for an appropriate space, signals when one is found, then helps steer you into the space.*
(2) Park-Out Assist provides instructions on shifting and moving forward/back to help steer you out of a tight spot.*
(3) Reverse Perpendicular Parking finds a suitable space and helps you back in.*
(4) Side Sensing System emits a warning when you get too close to an object on either side of your vehicle.
Available SYNC® 3

Upgrade to available SYNC 3. Enjoy all of the standard SYNC features plus new hardware, new software, and a new easy-to-use design. SYNC 3 offers high-speed performance, enhanced voice recognition,27 a capacitive touch screen with swipe capability, available navigation with easy destination entry and pinch-to-zoom functionality, Siri® seamless integration,48 and automatic updates over Wi-Fi®.

SYNC® Connect

With a SYNC® Connect-equipped vehicle, you can use FordPass® to track your vehicle's location and remotely access vehicle features such as start, lock and unlock and vehicle status including fuel level and approximate mileage. You can also schedule specific times to remotely start your vehicle so it's ready to hit the road as soon as you are.*   To learn more about where FordPass can take you, visit

BLIS® with Cross-Traffic Alert

The available BLIS® (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. Cross-traffic alert also uses radar to watch for traffic behind you as you're slowly backing out of a parking spot or driveway. If cross-traffic sensors detect a vehicle approaching from up to 15 yards away, you will be audibly and visually alerted.


Confidently capable.

The Ford Escape is up to the task at hand, whether it's towing a trailer up to 3,500-lbs.,3 accommodating five passengers and their cargo, or moving along confidently on rainy or snow-slick roads. Escape offers great versatility, with rear seats that fold easily when the need for cargo space takes priority. Greater assurance on the road, too, with Torque Vectoring Control, available Intelligent 4WD System, and available Trailer Sway Control.

Intelligent 4WD System

Whether you're driving on a rainy or snow-covered road, the available Intelligent 4WD System continuously monitors traction and road conditions every 16 milliseconds. It can transfer torque from front wheels to rear wheels as needed to ensure a precise blend of handling and traction at all times.

3,500-lb. Towing Capacity

Ford Escape with available 2.0L EcoBoost® power and Class II Tow Package can tow up to 3,500 lbs. Trailer sway control technology is included in the package. When trailer sway is detected, the system automatically takes measures, such as applying precise braking or reduced engine torque, to help keep both the vehicle and the trailer under control.39

Electric Parking Brake

The new electric parking brake uses a motor at each rear caliper in place of a mechanically operated cable. It provides fingertip convenience at the touch of a switch (instead of having to pull and release a heavier lever) and frees up valuable space for storage.

How it works: (1) To set the parking brake, depress the brake pedal and pull up the switch located to the left of the gear shifter. (2) To release, hold the brake pedal, turn the ignition on, and pull the switch down. (3) To release on the go, close the door, buckle in, turn on the ignition and shift into gear; hit the accelerator pedal and the parking brake automatically releases.

Cargo Capacity

The Escape can seat up to five. And its versatility lets you convert rear seat room to extra space - up to a maximum 68 cu. ft. - when transporting cargo takes priority.

Fold both rear seat backs for a flat load surface and 68 cu. ft. of total cargo space. Or fold down either of the 60/40 split rear seat backs for more cargo space and still carry one or two rear passengers. If you're carrying items such as luggage, leave both seat backs up and you have 34 cu. ft. of cargo space. On Escape models with 17-inch wheels, the load floor is adjustable: (1) high position for a flat load floor and easy loading with the seats folded; (2) low position for additional cargo room.

Roof Rack Side Rails

Black roof rack side rails are included in the SE Technology Package and the SE Sport Appearance Package. Bright Silver roof rack side rails are standard on Titanium. Roof rack side rails with available crossbars* let you carry more on any adventure, especially items that don't transport easily inside the cargo area.

60/40 split-fold-flat rear seat backs

A versatile 60/40 split 2nd-row seat is standard in all models. Fold down either of the seat backs for more cargo space and still carry one or two rear passengers. Folding down both seat backs provides maximum cargo space of 68 cu. ft. with a flat load floor.


The Ford Escape is equipped with features to help you maintain control, as well as to help protect you in the event of an accident: (1) Standard AdvanceTrac® with RSC® (Roll Stability Control™) includes Curve Control,39 designed to slow you down when it senses you're going too fast for a particular curve. (2) The standard Tire Pressure Monitoring System alerts you when your tires are under-inflated (not available on spare tire). (3) Escape features the Personal Safety System,™ next-generation dual-stage driver- and front-passenger airbags, a driver's knee airbag, and front seat-mounted side airbags.
