2017 Ford Escape Utility

If you're thinking of getting a new compact SUV, you might be looking at the 2017 Ford Escape. Learn about the utility features in this rugged vehicle from Terry's Ford today.


The 2017 Ford Escape is built to help you tow and haul, whether you're running a major errand around Peotone or going on a well-deserved vacation. Choose the 2.0L twin-scroll turbocharged EcoBoost engine with Auto Start/Stop for better fuel efficiency and add on the Class II trailer tow package, and you'll be able to tow an impressive 3,500 lbs. of cargo at a time!

Inside the 2017 Ford Escape, you'll have plenty of room for passengers and cargo alike. When all seats are up, you'll get 34 cubic feet of space, plenty of room for a large shopping trip or to stow the gear that you need as you drive around Bradley on your daily errands. The second row seat features a 60/40 split-folding construction, letting you fold down either or both sides of the seat to create a flat load floor that's easy to pack. You'll get up to 68 cubic feet of cargo space with this split-folding construction! A roof rack and side rails add to your ability to carry cargo, luggage, or sporting equipment anywhere you please.


The 2017 Ford Escape helps you stay in control even when you're driving over rough terrain with a large load. The standard electronic Curve Control system uses sensors to determine if you're going too fast for safety, and uses anti-lock braking and throttle reduction to safely slow your speed. As you enter a curve, the standard Torque Vectoring Control system transfers torque to the wheels with the most amount of grip, which helps to reduce under steer and keep you safely on track. AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control depends on two gyroscopic sensors to monitor the stability of your car and detect a rolling body or slipping wheels, helping you keep control of your drive even on tough road conditions. To top off all this great technology, the Intelligent four-wheel drive system monitors road condition and traction every 16 milliseconds and transfers torque to keep you steady.

Trailering Safety

Trailer sway control technology comes with the Class II tow package. This system detects trailer sway, and automatically reduces engine torque or applies precision braking as needed to help you keep your trailer and Escape under control so you don't have to worry about over steering to keep your trailer on the road. The electric parking brake helps you keep your Escape stable when stationary, using a motor instead of a cable to make it easier to park and feel secure.
