If you're planning on purchasing the 2017 Ford Escape, you might be wondering what kind of advanced features are included in this compact SUV. Learn about the technology in the 2017 Ford Escape today from Terry's Ford.
The 2017 Ford Escape is packed with features that make your drive more convenient. The Intelligent Access remote key fob lets you keep your keys on your person in a bag or a pocket to open your Escape. Just walk towards the Escape and it will unlock, walk away and it will lock, and press a single button inside the car and it will start! It's also used with the hands-free foot-activated liftgate. When you have the Intelligent Access key on your person, all you need to do is kick under your Escape's bumper and the liftgate will automatically open at a safe speed. You can also adjust the default height of the liftgate to avoid collisions with a ceiling.
The new electric parking brake is designed to make keeping your Escape in place easy around Peotone. Instead of using a mechanical cable that makes it hard to pull the parking brake in order to secure your car, the electric parking brake uses motors placed at your rear calipers to keep your Escape right here it needs to be.
The 2017 Ford Escape includes all the features you'll need to keep connected as you drive. Ford Sync 3 offers faster performance, clearer graphics, and better touch capability than ever before. Sync up your mobile smartphone to your 10-inch electrostatic touchscreen so you can use your favorite apps for information, entertainment, and social networking even on the go! Listen to your favorite music, stream Internet radio, or choose Sirius XM with high definition radio. Natural voice commands make it easy to place hands-free calls from your contacts list with Bluetooth streaming phone and audio.
Add Sync Connect, and you'll be able to use FordPass to remotely lock, unlock, and start your Escape no matter where it is in Bradley or around the world. Check your mileage and fuel status before you go, and find its GPS location if you've left it in a parking lot. Opt for in-vehicle navigation, and you'll get real-time GPS information with turn-by-turn directions to keep you on track.
The 2017 Ford Escape is packed with features to keep you safe and alert. Adaptive Cruise Control and Collision Warning uses a sonar camera to determine how close you are to the car ahead of you, slowing you down via brake support to avoid collisions. The lane-keeping system detects your position in the lane and alerts you if you drift without signaling. Enhanced active park assist helps you steer easily into even the tightest parking spaces without worry. Finally, the blind spot information system with cross-traffic alert lets you know when there's a vehicle or another obstacle that you can't see.
