There’s some vehicles that we think can fit just about anyone’s lifestyle -- whether they need an efficient daily driver, a capable work machine or something with a little extra style. One such vehicle is the 2017 Ford Escape, which looks to be improving on one of our favorite SUVs on the road today. Read on to learn more about what is all new in the 2017 Ford Escape in Jacksonville NC
One reason that we’ve always been fans of what the Ford Escape does compared to similarly sized crossovers and SUVs is that it doesn’t forget what an SUV is supposed to be. Some of its competitors tend to lack when it comes to the “sport” and “utility” portions of SUV, but that’s not the case with the Ford Escape -- which can tow around 3,500 lbs when properly equipped, despite its smaller size.
Power isn’t the only thing that the 2017 Ford Escape will be offering our Jacksonville NC customers when it hits dealership lots in Spring 2016, though. The Escape is also highly efficient, with a rating of 22 City/32 Highway -- which is on par with many midsize cars even. You can also upgrade from its standard engine to the 1.5L EcoBoost for an even greater efficiency rating.
Another area that impresses in the 2017 Ford Escape is just how many features can be packed into it. It will be arriving with the latest version of Ford SYNC 3 so that users can connect their smartphones to take advantage of Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. Additional features include convenient options like a hands-free liftgate, adaptive cruise control, and parking assist.
