The ESCAPE’s Intelligent AWD system monitors each wheel, and increases or decreases the amount of torque to optimize grip and handling in all conditions. A display in your instrument panel lets you see how the system is performing, by giving you a graphic illustration of the power distribution between all four wheels.
Save on fuel
The more time we can put between you and your next visit to the fuel pump, the better. The fuel-saving technology in the ESCAPE is designed to help lower your cost of ownership. EcoBoost engine technology turns traditional petrol-engine thinking on its head. Its advanced direct injection and turbocharging combine small-engine fuel economy and big-engine power into one, so you don’t have to compromise on either. That is why the ESCAPE is adjudged to delivers the most powerful engines in its segment without the compromise of efficiency.
Extra levels of protection
The ESCAPE’s highly advanced technology provides you with the very best levels of protection and helps make your life simpler and stress-free too. The ESCAPE’s seven airbags – including side-curtain airbags – offer 360-degrees of protection for both front and backseat passengers.
If another vehicle is in your blind spot when changing lanes, the Blind Spot Information System alerts you with a discreet warning light built into the driver and passenger doors’ side mirrors. When traffic is crawling along, it can be easy to miss someone suddenly stopping. In speeds under 30km/h, the optional Active City Stop detects if the car ahead has unexpectedly stopped and automatically applies the brakes.
Other available safety features on the ESCAPE include the Adaptive Cruise Control and collision warning; Lane-Departure Warning with Lane-Keeping Aid; Intelligent Protection System (IPS); Electronic Stability Program (ESP) as well as front and curtain airbags; and many more.
