What’s So Great About the Ford Escape?

These days, people want a vehicle that can do it all. A practical vehicle can navigate rocky roads while also sleekly and stylishly sliding through downtown environments.

Drivers expect modern technology to make their ride safe and entertaining and they also want a vehicle that’s environmentally friendly and powerful. Read on to learn more about how the 2020 Ford Escape delivers all this at once.

Multiple Types of Clean Engines

The 2020 Ford Escape is available in a few different types of engines. There’s a Hybrid option, a Plug-in Hybrid, and different types of EcoBoost engines.

Hybrid Electric Vehicles use battery and gas to optimize performance and fuel efficiency, and they don’t need to be plugged in, as regenerative braking and the gas engine recharge the battery pack.

Plug-in Hybrids are powered by both gas and battery, using the battery until there’s no charge left, then switching to gas. The EcoBoost Auto Start-Stop technology is available in a 1.5- or 2.0-litre engine. Pick the engine type that speaks to you, and get a Ford Escape built as you like it.

Smart and Seamless Technology

The Ford Escape is filled with the advanced technology that keeps everyone on the road safer and ensures the driver and all passengers can keep connected on the go. Explore the demo inventory at Colony Ford to feel and see the technology in person, or read on to learn more.

Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking is a feature that scans the road ahead to detect other vehicles. If it senses there’s a risk of collision, the vehicle will brace itself to stop. If the driver takes no corrective action the brakes apply automatically.

The Blind Spot Information System warns drivers if there’s a vehicle behind them, but just out of sight in their blind spot. Changing lanes on the highway or backing out of a parking spot will be more comfortable, safer, and free of stress.

The FordPass Connect turns the vehicle itself into a Wi-Fi Hotspot that can connect ten devices to the internet simultaneously. For long journeys, passengers will be able to pass the time catching up on emails or even streaming video content without using up data from their phone plan.

An available Waze integration makes everyone’s favourite third-party traffic app easy to interface with, so interacting with the app feels natural and easy.

Finally, the Ford Escape is available with Ford’s patented SYNC3 system powering Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The vehicle’s touchscreen works smoothly by touch or voice command. The system lets drivers keep their eyes on the road while staying connected to everyone on their contact list via phone calls, emails and texts. They can also use powerful navigation features and access their music.
