About

As one of the most popular vehicles in Ford’s lineup, the 2017 Ford Escape is a best seller for a reason. There have been a few changes to the 16 year old car with a more contemporary exterior design, and some new interior perks too. Ford are trying to ensure they appeal to the new demand for SUVs and crossovers and they’ve done a great job with the Escape.

Exterior

The exterior features a classic Ford Escape look with a chrome highlighted grille with the iconic for emblem in the middle. On either side it has headlights that wrap around the sides of the car. It is a fairly large car, although not as bulky perhaps as some of its peers. There have been active upper-grille shutters added to help streamline airflow into the vehicle at higher speeds.
