2017 Ford Escape Details
The 2017 Ford Escape is a four-door compact SUV that comes in three different trim levels: S, SE, and Titanium. Inside the cabin, the new Escape model gets new color and higher-quality materials than previous iterations, including a new steering wheel with improved five-way controllers, updated climate controls, and revised vent design. The vehicle is also quieter than last year, thanks to new insulated front doors and A-pillars, more aerodynamic side mirrors, new windshield sealing, a 360-degree hood seat, front wheel well insulation, and a shielded underbody.
Moving on to under the hood, the 2017 Ford Escape has a couple of different engine configurations. The base S trim comes standard with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that cranks out 168 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque. Next up is the EcoBoost 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that comes standard on the SE and Titanium. This engine is good for 178 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. Finally, you can also choose the EcoBoost 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which produces 245 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque. Each of these engines can be matched to front- or four-wheel-drive.
