Production Begins on the 2017 Ford Escape

Work is underway on the new 2017 Ford Escape, which will include driver-assist technology that can help keep drivers in their lane, maintain a set speed and distance on the highway, and even help drivers in getting out of a tight parking spot.

  • New Escape – first Ford vehicle to offer Apple CarPlay and Android Auto – aims to maintain sales momentum and attributes that led it to a tie* as Highest-Ranked Compact SUV by J.D. Power in Initial Quality; Escape is the No. 2-selling Ford vehicle in the United States, second only to F-Series
  • To deliver top quality, the build process at Louisville Assembly Plant has implemented multiple new attention-to-detail stations that use high-tech methods and human touch to scrutinize every Escape that comes down the line

The 2017 Ford Escape will hit dealerships in May.

    Much better looking than my 2015 Escape. This looks more like the Lincoln MKC. I like the grill much better. Leased the 15, so have to wait till 2018 to trade it.
