Get In. Go. Repeat.

From the spacious interior to the sleek, head-turning lines of the exterior, Ford Escape was built for adventure on the road and a lifestyle on the go. Besides plenty of standard features, Ford Escape also offers several well-equipped models and packages like the SE Sport Appearance Package, SEL Stealth AWD Package and the Titanium Elite Package.

Interior

The Escape interior has many available features and conveniences to help make traveling and exploring more comfortable. The sleek rotary gear shift dial opens space on the center console and helps improve overall front-row comfort. And with the second-row 60/40 split-fold-flat seats with their sliding feature, you can increase second-row leg room or slide them forward to maximize rear cargo space.*

Beauty That’s More Than Sheet Metal Deep

Load up with friends for a night out. Get away for the weekend. Experience music the way your favorite artist intended. The Escape® SUV is one beautiful ride.

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. Available Active Park Assist 2.0 also offers Park Out Assist with side-sensing capability so you can confidently navigate out of a parking spot when someone's parked too close to you - included in the Titanium Premium Package and Titanium Elite Package.

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 back, the Vista Roof lets in natural light. Available on SE EcoBoost and Hybrid, SEL and Titanium.

Hands-Free Foot-Activated Liftgate

Thanks to the available hands-free foot-activated liftgate, there's no need to fumble for keys. Its operation is especially helpful when your arms are full of items like grocery bags. With the Intelligent Access key fob in your pocket or purse, kick your foot under the bumper and the liftgate opens. You can also adjust the liftgate opening height, helpful for lower overhangs like garages. Included in the SEL Technology Package and Titanium Package.

Technology

In an increasingly crowded and stressful world, we can all use more confidence on the road. Ford offers standard and available features to help keep you confident, from the driveway to the highway.

Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control

Available Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control adds Speed Sign Recognition to go along with features like Stop-and-Go and Lane Centering Assist. Once you’ve activated the feature and set your preferred speed, the system can detect and automatically adjust to speed limit signs along your route. This smart system can also bring the vehicle to a stop, when needed, if traffic ahead has stopped or slowed. As soon as things clear, you’ll resume your set speed. * And that’s not the only way it enhances your cruise control experience. The Lane Centering Assist feature even scans lane markings to help you keep your vehicle centered between the lines.

*If vehicle is stopped for more than three seconds, driver must intervene and press “RES” button or accelerator pedal to resume system operation.


Available SYNC® 3

Keep your eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel with available SYNC® 3. It’s our easy-to-use voice-controlled technology that also has a capacitive touchscreen. Its sleek, user-friendly interface gives SYNC 3 more than just the ability to make phone calls and play your favorite music – it’s also about making connectivity fast, smart and simple.


Head-Up Display

The available Head-Up Display creates an image on a screen in front of the driver. This minimizes the distraction of having to look at the instrument panel. The Head-Up Display keeps you informed with various driver-assist features that include Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go, Lane-Keeping System, Navigation, incoming calls and more. * Included in the Titanium Premium Package and Titanium Elite Package.

*Don’t drive while distracted. See Owner’s Manual for details and system limitations.


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.

Capability to Explore

Three-Engine, Four-Powertrain Lineup

1.5L EcoBoost®

The standard 1.5L EcoBoost® engine with Auto Start-Stop Technology is coupled with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Auto Start-Stop Technology can help lower fuel consumption and vehicle emissions during city driving when your vehicle comes to a stop. The engine shuts off and then seamlessly restarts when you step on the accelerator or when your foot leaves the brake pedal.

2.0L EcoBoost®

The available 2.0L EcoBoost® engine comes with Auto Start-Stop Technology. When equipped with the 2.0L EcoBoost Class II Trailer Tow Package, this engine has a maximum towing capacity of 3,500 lbs. *

*Max towing varies based on cargo, vehicle configuration, accessories and number of passengers.

Hybrid 2.5L I-4

The 2.5L I-4 Atkinson-cycle powertrain features an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission (eCVT) and a 96 kW electric motor. Also, the Escape Hybrid packages its liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery smartly outside of the passenger compartment below the floor of the second-row seats rather than occupying a significant portion of the cargo area. The briefcase-shaped battery in the standard hybrid measures less than one-third the size of the previous-generation Escape Hybrid battery. *

*See a Ford EV-certified dealer for details.

Plug-In 2.5L I-4

The Escape Plug-in Hybrid* has a Level 1/Level 2 AC charging port. Using the standard 110-volt Level 1 charger, the estimated time to fully charge the battery is 10 to 11 hours. Using an optional 240-volt Level 2 charger, charge time drops to roughly 3.5-4.5 hours, depending on outlet amperage. ** What’s more, the design of the Escape allows for the battery to be stored outside the passenger compartment, which frees up space in the cabin, offering plug-in customers more room without sacrificing space for the battery.

*Available at Ford EV-certified dealers only.
**Charge time based on manufacturer computer engineering simulations. The charging rate decreases as battery reaches full capacity. Your results may vary based on peak charging times and battery state of charge.

Confidence on the Road to Adventure

The Ford Escape offers a wide range of available features to help keep you aware of your surroundings and ever-changing traffic conditions. Ford Co-Pilot360™ is an advanced suite of standard driver-assist technologies to help keep you connected and confident when you hit the road as part of your diverse, adventurous and active lifestyle.
