2017 Ford Escape Earns Top Honors in SUV Challenge

If you’re in the market for an outstanding SUV, then you’ll definitely want to consider the 2017 Ford Escape. It recently earned the top spot in Cars.com’s annual compact SUV challenge, leaving other top contenders in the dust. The national automotive outlet ranked the brand-new five-door Ford Escape as the best option for shoppers in the small SUV segment.

For 2017, the crossover gets enhanced exterior styling, some interior improvements, a newly available 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine and a modified 2.0-liter turbocharger that offers a little more power.

“The significantly refreshed Ford Escape is a great-driving small SUV, now with even more features for the money,” said Patrick Olsen, Cars.com editor in chief. “Between its huge driver-connectivity system, comfortable and quiet ride, and impressive built-in storage, the Escape is a real winner.”

When it comes to safety, the Escape has got you covered with its top-notch features that now include lane-departure prevention, a driver drowsiness monitor and adaptive cruise control with forward collision alert at no additional charge.

Offered in three trims, S, SE and Titanium, the technology-packed Escape is ready to haul you and your family around town in style and comfort. Even the entry-level S comes standard with a slew of top-tier features like 17-inch wheels, automatic headlights, LED taillights, MyKey parental controls, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel and much more.

Designed to make life a little easier, the Escape’s available SYNC Connect technology also lets owners start, lock, unlock and locate their vehicle using the FordPass mobile app.
