The 2017 Escape

The difference between the 2017 Escape and its predecessors is striking. The first thing you’ll notice is the revised front fascia with sharp, two-bar grille and hexagonal surround. The headlights have been refined as well. They’re shorter, and stretch a little further back, creating a more aggressive appearance. The chrome beltline trim on the SE and Titanium Escape gives the exterior a sharp balance. And, with a host of new wheel options including the stunning 19” Ebony Black set, the Escape looks worthy of sitting alongside other “premium” crossovers. Overall, the Ford Escape has never looked better. Of course, you can tell that by looking at the pictures.

They have 10-way adjustment and memory features. You also get a leather-wrapped, heated steering wheel. At every trim level, you get tons of legroom. And with fold-flat, second-row seating, there’s ample room for cargo. But will all of the incredible equipment available in the 2017 Escape, it’s easier to break things down by trim level.
