There’s No Escaping the 2017 Ford Escape!

The Ford Escape was pretty awesome before but it’s easy to say that it got even better in 2017! With a much needed interior and exterior redesign, the new Escape is set to impress loyal fans and naysayers alike. Fully equipped with the latest safety features and the coolest technology, it will be hard to escape…the Escape. 😉 Not up to speed on its newest developments? Keep reading and we’ll give you all you need to know!


It’s safe to say that the available safety features on any vehicle are always one of the first things drivers look at. The 2017 Escape has earned the Overall 5-Star Crash Safety Rating by the National Highway Traffic Administration. In addition, available Standard AdvanceTrac includes Curve Control, which will slow down your vehicle if it senses that you’re going too fast around a curve. Forward Collision Warning with Brake Support will alert you to a potential collision with the vehicle in front of you. Available Lane-Keeping System has several features that will help protect you if you catch (or don’t catch!) yourself drifting. Lane-Keeping Alert mode will vibrate your steering wheel if it senses you’re too close to a lane marker. The Lane-Keeping Aid mode activates directional steering to help bring you back to the center of the lane.If you ever needed any reason to Escape, these are it.


The 2017 Ford Escape may look like a regular CUV but we can assure you, there is much more to it than meets the eye. The 6-Speed SelectShift transmission gives you the sporty edge that we all crave once in awhile. With that being said, efficiency is something we all consider when looking at a new car. Once again, the Escape does not fail to impress. The addition of the available Auto Start-Stop Technology will help reduce fuel consumption and emissions. Once your vehicle is stopped, the engine will shut off automatically and restart seamlessly when you either step on the gas or release the brake pedal. Why should your car run when it doesn’t need to?


A new car in 2017 just has to satisfy all of those nifty technology standards – and for good reason. The Ford Escape does not fall short in this category. Available SYNC Connect allows you to use FordPass to track your car’s location right from your phone. You can start, lock and unlock, check on your vehicle status (fuel level, mileage), and schedule times to start your car remotely. It really doesn’t get any easier than that.

The 2017 Ford Escape has everything you could ever want or need in a CUV…plus you can’t go wrong with a Ford! We’re ready to answer your questions! Visit us at Lester Glenn Ford at 900 Rt. 35 in Ocean Township, New Jersey. We can’t wait to see you!
