The Escape gets a lot right as it has a spacious cabin, and it comes with a ton of tech features and a ton of driver's safety aids which will help enhance any driver's experience. Under the hood, you have a choice of three powerful engine options that are sure to impress. Want to know more about the Ford Escape? Continue reading down below!


AWD with AWD Disconnect

Available All-Wheel Drive with AWD Disconnect can disable the rear driveline when the system detects AWD is not needed. This allows only the front wheels to propel the vehicle, reducing drag and the overall energy demands of the drivetrain.

Selectable Drive Modes

Designed to help improve your driving experience and handling on varying road surfaces. The different modes are Eco, Sport, Normal, Slippery and Deep Snow/Sand. Once selected, each one of these driving modes can modify the electronic stability control and traction control systems without further input from you.


12.3-Inch Digital Instrument Cluster

A new way to look at your dash. The available 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster lets you configure the look and function of your driving information.

B&O Sound System by Bang & Olufsen

Enjoy your personal sound studio wherever you go. The available B&O® Sound System by Bang & Olufsen (included in the SEL Technology Package, Titanium Premium Package, and Titanium Elite Package) offers a dynamic, immersive listening experience for everyone on board.


Active Park Assist 2.0

Parking made easy - even in tight parallel or reverse perpendicular spots. When engaged, it can help locate a potential spot. Then all you have to do is brake to a complete stop, shift into Neutral and hold down the Active Park Assist button - your vehicle does the rest.

Rotary Gear Shift Dial

The rotary gear shift dial takes up less room than a traditional gear shift lever. This opens space for more conveniently arranged cupholders, improved bin size, smart storage, and dual USB ports.


Panoramic Vista Roof

The available panoramic Vista Roof features a large forward panel that tilts up or opens fully, plus a fixed rear skylight. So whether you're sitting upfront or in the back, the Vista Roof lets in natural light. Available on SE EcoBoost and Hybrid, SEL, and Titanium.

SE Sport Appearance Package

Turn heads with the available SE Sport Appearance Package, which includes 19-inch machined-face, Ebony-painted aluminum wheels, black upper window molding with black beltline molding, black front, and rear lower bumpers, high-gloss black grille with horizontal bars and chrome surround, plus high-gloss black skullcap mirrors.
