Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2017 Escape gets revised exterior styling, some minor interior improvements, a newly available 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine and a modified 2.0-liter engine with a bit more power. Models with Sync 3 also provide an ownership app (FordPass with Sync Connect) and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration. Safety features now include lane departure prevention, a drowsy driver warning system, and adaptive cruise control with forward collision alert.

Pros
Optional 2.0-liter turbocharged engine accelerates quickly
New tech interface features advanced voice control, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto
Steering and handling feel more like that of a car than SUV
More room for small stuff, and more power plugs

Cons
New base engine lacks punch
Dashboard design looks dated with many small, similar-looking buttons
Base-model S trim available only with older, less efficient 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine

The 2017 Ford Escape ranks 4 out of 18 Compact SUVs. The 2017 Ford Escape has a solid ranking in the top third of the very competitive compact SUV class. A well-balanced ride, an upscale interior, potent optional engines, and a long list of available features help the Escape outperform many rivals.

Pros
Quality interior
Lots of cool, user-friendly tech features
Nimble handling
Peppy and fuel-efficient turbocharged engine options

Cons
Below-average fuel economy with base engine

Strategically updated for 2017, the Ford Escape becomes an even more attractive alternative in the popular compact-SUV segment that includes the Honda CR-V, Kia Sportage, Hyundai Tucson, Mazda CX-5, Mitsubishi Outlander Sport and Toyota RAV4. Tasteful but effective exterior restyling enhances the Escape’s curb appeal while a comprehensive remake of its roomy, comfortable 5-passenger cabin elevates both visual sophistication and user-friendliness. Available in S/SE/Titanium trims and front- or all-wheel drive, the 2017 Escape also introduces a host of advanced tech touches including Ford’s Sync 3 infotainment system with Sync Connect along with support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. This versatile Ford offers three engines -- including two new, more powerful and more efficient EcoBoost 4-cylinders -- that help the Escape retain its best-in-class tow ratings.

Pros
Buyers in the market for a stylish compact SUV that’s roomy, comfortable and capable with state-of-the-art infotainment features and class-leading tow ratings will find an ideal travel mate in the 2017 Escape.

Cons
Save for personal styling preferences, there’s not a great deal to ding in this latest iteration of the Escape. The Mazda CX-5 has more sporting character and the Honda CR-V offers marginally more cargo space, but Ford’s highly adaptable hauler makes an impressive case for itself on every functional front.
