THE 2017 FORD ESCAPE CROSSOVER AVAILABLE NOW IN CARMAN, MB
The new 2017 Ford Escape is the perfect family getaway. Okay, we’ll stop with the cheesy puns. But even fifteen years after when the compact crossover first hit the streets of America, the meaning of its moniker lives on in both the design and the spirit of the Ford Escape. And now the 2017 edition is 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, what results can be classified as “just right.” Available with 4WD to conquer blizzard conditions, and a now-standard rearview camera to make a breeze out of mall parking, the Escape is clearly furnished with high-quality materials, quickly 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.

2017 FORD ESCAPE PERFORMANCE & ECONOMY
The Ford Escape is a crossover that distinguishes itself from the competition in a number of key ways. One of which is that it gives you 3 choices of engines, those being:
- 2.5L Duratec 4-cylinder: 168hp, 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 an available upgrade on the SE and Titanium trims. The best fuel economy comes with the 1.5L turbocharged engine, edging out its siblings with a 7.8L/100km highway fuel efficiency. Meanwhile, when it comes to towing, a properly equipped 2.0L Ford Escape can pull up to 3,500 lbs.
2017 FORD ESCAPE INTERIOR
Even with the 68 cubic feet of available storage left unused, there are still plenty of delightful touches spread out from hood to hatch in the new 2017 Ford Escape. The Escape may be the easiest to afford of the Ford CUV lineup, but that doesn’t mean it’s lacking in either available luxury or usefulness. 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. But 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 take off with in your next Escape.
2017 FORD ESCAPE SAFETY
The new 2017 Ford Escape crossover starts off safe and lets you add a number of additional safety technologies if you want it even safer or more convenient. Starting with a solid foundation of ABS disc brakes, full-length side curtain airbags, and stability and traction control, Ford also throws in a rearview camera and integrated blind spot mirrors to give you a view you’d otherwise be lacking. Rear parking sensors and a cross-traffic alert are also available on the Titanium trim, giving you the confidence you need when backing up. New for the Escape are the standard safety features of lane departure prevention, drowsy driver warning, and adaptive cruise control with forward collision alert.
