The 2017 Ford Escape is the perfect family getaway. Okay, we’ll stop with the cheesy puns. But even fifteen years after this compact crossover first hit the streets, the meaning of its moniker lives on in both the design and the spirit of the Ford Escape. You can find the 2017 edition here at Carman Ford, ready to chauffeur Manitoba families to wherever their next adventures lie.

A four-door hatchback that seats five, the 2017 Escape bridges the gap between the midsize Ford Fusion, and the larger Ford Edge and Explorer. In the language of fairy tales, the crossover that results can be classified as “just right.” Available with 4WD to conquer challenging winter conditions, and a now-standard rearview camera to make mall parking a breeze, the Escape is clearly furnished with high-quality materials, giving it the feel of a more expensive car. Just a word of warning: your standards of what you require in a vehicle may be forever raised from here.

The Ford Escape is a crossover that distinguishes itself from the competition in a number of key areas. One of the ways it sets itself apart is with its engine lineup:

  • 2.5L Duratec 4-cylinder: 170 lb-ft torque
  • 1.5L EcoBoost turbocharged 4-cylinder: 179hp, 177 lb-ft torque
  • 2.0L EcoBoost turbocharged 4-cylinder: 245hp, 275 lb-ft torque

Each model uses a 6-speed automatic transmission, with 4WD as an available upgrade on the SE and Titanium trims. The best fuel economy comes from the 1.5L turbocharged engine, edging out its siblings with efficiency as good as 7.8L/100km on the highway. Meanwhile, when it comes to towing, a properly equipped 2.0L Ford Escape can pull up to 1,587 kg (3,500 lbs).


Even with the 1,925 L of available storage left unused, there are still plenty of delightful touches from hood to hatch in the 2017 Ford Escape. The Escape may be the most affordable of the Ford CUVs, but that doesn’t mean it’s lacking in available luxury or functionality. The foundation is strong, with full power accessories, height-adjustable driver seating, remote entry, cruise control, and A/C to make each moment in the ergonomically optimized Escape one of total comfort. Seek and you shall be rewarded: leather upholstery and steering, 8″ touchscreen, panoramic sunroof, navigation system, and a Sony 10-speaker sound system are just a handful of the treasures you could discover in your next Escape.


The 2017 Ford Escape crossover starts off safe and lets you add a number of additional advanced technologies if you want even more protection and convenience. Starting with a solid foundation of ABS disc brakes, full-length side curtain airbags, and stability and traction control, Ford also throws in a rear-view camera and integrated blind spot mirrors to give you a whole new perspective on safety. Rear parking sensors and cross-traffic alert are available on the Titanium trim, giving you the confidence you need when backing up. The Escape also includes now-standard safety features like lane departure prevention, drowsy driver warning, and adaptive cruise control with forward collision alert.


You don’t always have to upgrade to the Titanium model with all of its optional accessories to get the parts or features you want. In many cases, à la carte parts and accessories are available for your Ford Escape through our Parts Centre.
