2017 Ford Escape Brings Expanded Connectivity Options And Services

Sam Abuelsamid

The second-best selling nameplate in the current Ford lineup behind the perennially leading F-series trucks is the Escape. With more than 126,000 units sold through the first five months of 2016, the only Ford car that comes close is the Fusion with the rest trailing far, far behind. The utility segment which includes both the old-school body-on-frame truck-based SUV and unibody crossovers is the all the rage not just in America but in many global markets including Europe. That’s why Ford is launching four additional global utility nameplates by 2020. While we wait for those to arrive, the crew in Dearborn has given the Escape a mid-cycle refresh that includes a new face, new engines and new connectivity options.
