Life on the road made easier.

2017 Escape is smarter than ever. The available technology features can do just about anything – from alerting you to unintentional lane drifting,10  to auto-maneuvering you into (or out of) a tight parking spot10 , to opening the available hands-free, foot-activated liftgate with a gentle kick under the rear bumper. Available SYNC® 3 features voice-activated technology that helps keep you connected while you keep your eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel.27

 

Adaptive Cruise Control and Forward Collision Warning with Brake Support

Go beyond conventional cruise control. Available Adaptive Cruise Control lets you select the speed and distance you want to maintain from the vehicle in front of you. When traffic ahead slows down, you automatically slow down, and later resume the preset speed when traffic picks back up.10  Forward Collision Warning with Brake Support can alert you to a potential collision with the vehicle ahead. If you don’t react in time, the brakes will precharge and increase sensitivity, providing full responsiveness when you brake.10

Lane-Keeping System

The available driver-activated Lane-Keeping System can alert you to unintentional lane drifting.*10  Choose the Lane-Keeping Alert mode that vibrates the steering wheel when you drift too close to a lane marker — or the Lane-Keeping Aid mode that activates a directional steering torque to help guide you back to the center of the lane. Or combine the effects of both modes: Continue drifting after the steering torque is activated and the steering wheel adds the vibrating sensation.
