Features of the Ford Escape

  • The heart of Escape’s exterior is a dynamic six-point grille. Sporting an athletic hood design, sleek body lines, and boldly sculpted wheel arches – Escape is perfectly poised and ready for anything.
  • Escape's adaptable rear storage and versatile 60/40 split rear seats offer ample space for... well, almost anything. A reconfigured centre console is equipped with a media bin to stow your essentials and charge your devices on the go. A new ergonomic 3-spoke steering wheel feels just right in your hands. And the traditional handbrake has been replaced with an electonic parking brake - creating even more space.
  • Escape's 1.5L EcoBoost and twin-scroll 2.0L EcoBoost engines combine turbocharging and direct injection technology to maximise power from every compression while helping you save on fuel. Enjoy all the low-end torque you need to effortlessly haul virtually any family-sized load.
  • Why waste fuel at idle? Escape knows when you've stopped at lights or stuck in traffic and shuts down the engine automatically. When you're ready to drive again, just press the accelerator and the engine restarts.
  • SYNC® 31 is there for you when you need it most. If you’re in an accident that deploys the airbags or activates the fuel pump shut off, Emergency Assistance uses your paired and in range mobile phone, to dial emergency services and provides them with your precise GPS coordinates.
  • The Escape's seven airbags - including side curtain airbags - offer extra protection for both front and backseat passengers. That's safety in numbers.
  • Say goodbye to the stress of parallel and perpendicular parking. First Enhanced Park Assist helps you find a park. It then helps to steers you in and even helps you steer out while you work the gears, accelerator and brake.
  • The upgraded SYNC® 3 1 system connects you to your world like never before. With enhanced voice recognition software, it's now even easier to make hands-free phone calls, listen to text messages2, and play your favourite music. The 8-inch capacitive touchscreen features redesigned interface with intuitive functions like pinch-to-zoom. The system even updates automatically via WiFi®3.

The perfect family-sized cabin

Escape's adaptable rear storage and versatile 60/40 split rear seats offer ample space for... well, almost anything.

Power opening panoramic roof1

Taking up almost 50% of your roof space the glass roof brings the outdoors in, at the touch of a button.

Interior 4

Live life in colour

Choose between seven colours and bring Ambient Lighting1 to footwells, door pockets and door handles.

Interior 5

Even the headlights are smart1

Twice as powerful as conventional lights, the adaptive bi-xenon HID headlights can detect changing road conditions and adapt beam patterns for optional illumination. They even help you see around corners by directing light into a bend when you turn. And during the day, the LED daytime running lamps help make you more visible to other drivers.

Interior 5

Extra Set of Eyes

The Escape’s wide-angle reverse camera automatically activates when the reverse gear is selected. It gives you a clear view of what’s behind you and takes the guess work out of reversing.

Smart Meets Style

The Escape is a showcase of Ford innovation. Sync to favourite apps like Spotify, get live traffic updates on the 8 inch capacitive touchscreen2 3. The intuitive SYNC® 3 system is smart and simple. With enhanced voice control and updated commands, even your kids can talk to it.

SYNC® 3

The upgraded SYNC® 3 2system connects you to your world like never before. With enhanced voice recognition software, it's now even easier to make hands-free phone calls, listen to text messages3, and play your favourite music. The 8-inch capacitive touchscreen features redesigned interface with intuitive functions like pinch-to-zoom. The system even updates automatically via WIFI®4.

Best of all, SYNC® 32 seamlessly integrates with your compatible smartphone through Apple CarPlay5, Android Auto6 and AppLink 7 for hands-free control of your favourite apps 3.

Technology 6

Enhanced Active Park Assist8 9

Say goodbye to the stress of parallel and perpendicular parking. First Enhanced Park Assist helps you find a park. It then helps to steer you in and even helps you steer out while you work the gears, accelerator and brake.

Technology 6

Parking made easy

Goodbye traditional hand brake. Escape's space-saving electronic parking brake lets you park securely with the touch of a button. Put Escape into reverse and the rear view camera turns on automatically, allowing you to clearly see objects behind you. At the same time, rear parking sensors beep to help let you know how close you are to any hidden obstacles.

Technology 6

MyKey ™

When your kids are old enough to borrow your Escape, MyKey™ helps to ensure they will drive as if you were in the car with them. Simply program MyKey™ to limit Escape's top speed and regulate stereo volume.

Technology 7

Hands-Free Power Tailgate8

The hands-free power tailgate opens (and closes) with a wave of your foot under the bumper. Because chances are, if you’re putting things in the back you’ve probably got your hands full. It even adjusts to the height of your garage.

Technology 7

Worry-free hill starts

Take your foot off the brake pedal and Hill Launch Assist9 holds the brakes for a few seconds, giving you time to smoothly accelerate away. Whether you're facing uphill or down.

Technology 8

Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) 9 10 11

It’s a small thing but a very important one. Indicator lights in the side mirrors can let you know if there’s a vehicle detected in your blind spot when changing lanes. So you can see what you can’t see.

Technology 8

Enhanced Active City Stop10 12

When traffic is crawling along, it can be easy to miss someone suddenly stopping up front. In speeds of up to 50km/h, Enhanced Active City Stop can detect if the car in front has unexpectedly stopped and automatically apply the brakes if you don’t.

Technology 8

Adaptive Cruise Control10 13

Cruise Control is great on the open road. But, even here, you can find traffic. So instead of having to turn Cruise Control on and off, Adaptive Cruise Control adapts. If it senses traffic is slowing, it slows. When the traffic clears, it goes back to your pre-set speed.

Technology 8

Auto high beam 9 10 14

When oncoming traffic is detected, the headlights automatically dip to ensure other drivers won't be 'blinded by the light'. Once the vehicle has passed, the high beams turn on again.

Auto Start-Stop16

Why waste fuel at idle? Escape knows when you've stopped at lights or stuck in traffic and shuts down the engine automatically. When you're ready to drive again, just press the accelerator and the engine restarts.

Performance 3

Torque Vectoring Control

Escape is engineered to handle all life's twists and turns. On winding roads or when manoeuvring tight bends, Torque Vectoring Control transfers torque to the wheels with the most grip, to help enhance control and virtually eliminate under-steer.

Performance 4

Intelligent All-Wheel Drive17

For greater control in challenging conditions, the intelligent All-Wheel Drive system is designed to monitor Escape's performance and adjusts the delivery of torque to each wheel every 16 milliseconds.

Performance 4

Paddle Shifters18

Similar to gear shifters used by racing drivers, Escape's Paddle Shifters allow you to make smooth and effortless gear changes without taking your hands off the wheel or using a clutch.

Performance 4

Active Grille Shutter

When it comes to fuel efficiency, a great engine is just the beginning. Escape features an Active Grille Shutter which closes to reduce aerodynamic ‘drag’ and opens to help cool the engine when required – so you save even more on fuel.
