Ford Escape Gets Tuned Up For 2017 Release

The 2017 Ford Escape didn’t see much of an exterior redesign for the new year, but that doesn’t mean the engineers at Ford haven’t been hard at work tuning up this model to meet today’s demands. This year, three engine options are available to shoppers at our Ford dealer serving Poynette. In addition to the base engine (a 2.5L four-cylinder that’s been carried over from the previous year with little changes), the 2017 Escape offers a revamped version of last year’s 2.0L EcoBoost engine that offers higher horsepower and an all-new 1.5L EcoBoost which offers superior gas mileage.

The technology packages have changed a bit as well. New this year is Ford’s SYNC 3 infotainment system, which offers top-of-the-line voice-activation technology, as well as a series of mobile apps and a new interface. Complementing this is Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which allow you to access many of your favorite smartphone apps using the intuitive controls of your vehicle. Now you can access navigation, make calls, send text messages, and even change your musical selections while keeping your eyes on the road and your hands upon the wheel.

Safety is always a top concern for our shoppers, and the 2017 Ford Escape has been upgraded to provide a safer ride than ever before. This includes modern active safety features like a lane-departure warning system as well as a forward collision warning system. The adaptive cruise control has been updated as well, and is now more suitable to everyday driving.

A Refined Ride for Poynette Area Ford Drivers

When they step inside the 2017 Ford Escape, Poynette area shoppers at Bell Ford will likely notice the redesigned center console first. The traditional hand-cranking parking brake has been removed this year, and it now features a push-button parking brake. This freed up room in the center of the vehicle, and allowed engineers to develop a more practical console that offers more storage area for your goods.

What hasn’t changed inside the 2017 Escape is its roominess and practicality. The spacious interior of this crossover has been a plus for this model for years, and it continues to be something our customers love. When it becomes more important to haul cargo than people, the back seats fold down to offer up to 68 cubic feet of maximum cargo space. That means you’ll never have to leave anything (or anyone) behind!

To learn more about the 2017 Ford Escape, don’t hesitate to contact Bell Ford online or by calling (877) 807-8842. We’ll be happy to demonstrate all the innovative new features this model carries, as well as get you behind the wheel for a test drive!
