2017 Ford Escape Takes Home The Cars.com Top Compact SUV Award
The 2017 Ford Escape took top honors in Cars.com’s annual compact SUV challenge, besting the 2016 Kia Sportage, 2016 Honda CR-V, 2016 Toyota RAV4 and 2016 Hyundai Tucson to rank as the best option for shoppers in the segment.
The technology-packed Escape features two new available EcoBoost® engines – both with standard Auto Start-Stop. SYNC® 3 is optional, along with such available driver-assist features as adaptive cruise control and collision warning with brake support, and enhanced active park assist.
“The significantly refreshed Ford Escape is a great-driving small SUV, now with even more features for the money,” said Patrick Olsen, Cars.com editor in chief. “Between its huge driver-connectivity system, comfortable and quiet ride, and impressive built-in storage, the Escape is a real winner.”
The 2017 Ford Escape – with available SYNC Connect that allows owners to start, lock, unlock and locate their vehicle using the FordPass™ mobile app available via a download – is in showrooms now with a starting MSRP of $23,600, plus taxes, title, delivery and license fees.
