2017 Ford Escape Eau Claire WI
There’s a reason why crossovers are so popular. When executed correctly, a crossover can blend performance, capability, and efficiency all while maintaining an exterior and interior that will make you feel right at home and still impress your friends. Most manufacturers cannot create a vehicle that strikes the balance necessary for a great crossover, but Ford is not like most manufacturers, and they have proven it with the 2017 Ford Escape.
The latest Escape is a crossover that you have to drive to believe, and at Osseo Auto you can test drive a 2017 Ford Escape in Eau Claire, WI, today! The Escape is sleek, roomy, and powerful. It is everything that you want in a crossover and more. Available in three trim levels, the S, SE, and Titanium, the Escape has plenty of options. Whether you need a 245-horsepower toy hauler or a fuel-efficient people mover, you are sure to find an Escape that fits your style.
The Escape S comes standard with a 2.5-liter engine that is capable of 21 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway. The SE and the Titanium have two engine options — a powerful 2.0-liter Twin Scroll EcoBoost that generates 245 horsepower with an impressive 275 pound-feet of torque, and an efficient 1.5-liter EcoBoost that gets 23 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway.
Unlike many other crossovers, which shall remain nameless, the 2017 Ford Escape actually has towing capability. Fully equipped, the Ford Escape is capable of towing upwards of 3,500 pounds. That’s enough to tow dirt bikes, jet skis, small to medium sized boats, travel trailers, and more. The Ford Escape will make sure that you can bring your fun wherever you want to go.
The Escape SE and Titanium have four-wheel-drive capability, but this isn’t your father’s four-wheel-drive setup. By continuously monitoring wheel sensors at the rapid rate of once every 16 milliseconds, the 2017 Ford Escape can keep track of ever-changing road conditions. When necessary, it will transfer power between front and rear wheels to maintain both traction and handling.
2017 Ford Escape capability and technology
The 2017 Ford Escape is astoundingly capable. Not only can it tow up to 3,500 pounds when properly outfitted, but it can also seat up to five people and still fit 34 cubic-feet of cargo. Do you need more room to haul? Then you can fold down the 60/40 split-fold rear seats to double your cargo capacity for up to 68 cubic-feet of cargo room. With the available roof rack, you can fit even more cargo on top, proving that a crossover doesn’t have to make sacrifices when it comes to capability.
When it comes to available technology, the Escape is one impressive machine. Not only can you have unprecedented levels of interaction with your crossover with avialable SYNC 3, but you can also take advantage of all the latest safety features. Lane-Keeping System, Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert, and Collision Warning with Brake Support are all available on the 2017 Escape.
You can even utilize several optional convenience features such as Adaptive Cruise Control, Hands-Free Foot-Activated Liftgate, and SiriusXM Satellite Radio.
