The 2017 Ford Escape is viewed as a huge improvement on an already remarkable crossover. The 2017 model brings more powerful engines, a nicer interior, better handling, a quieter ride, and more engine options.
Power Trains and Performance
The sole 2017 Ford Escape transmission is a 6-speed automatic. In terms of horsepower, the 2017 model marks the arrival of the turbocharged EcoBoost 1.5-liter engine, plus as a revised 2.0-liter EcoBoost version. The 1.5-liter EcoBoost comes standard in both the Titanium and SE trim levels. Projected 1.5-liter engine output is an estimated 180 horsepower along with 185 lb-ft of torque.
The available twin-scroll EcoBoost 2.0-liter now has a redesigned exhaust manifold and new pistons for refinement and improved efficiency. It is rated at a massive 245 horsepower and a formidable 275 lb-ft.
Better Interior Design
The interior of the 2017 Ford Escape is a lot nicer too, coming with a reworked center console and dash. It is now roomier thanks to switching to an electric parking brake from the previous big parking brake lever. Throughout, there are elbow rests, a feature that Ford is particularly very proud of having.
Ford engineers are also proud of the noise-reduction work carried out in the 2017 Escape that includes an acoustic windshield, laminated glass, added door insulation, and insulated wheel-arch liners.
If you are seeking a car with neat technology, excellent handling, boosted power, and a comfortable practical interior, the 2017 Ford Escape, available from Las Cruces area Ford dealerships fits the bill perfectly.
