2017 Ford Escape Tops “Best User Experience” List



The 2017 Ford Escape made it among Wards Auto’s list of 10 Best User Experiences. The list makes up of newly designed or refreshed vehicles that come with all-new user interfaces.

The Ford Escape made the list due to its SYNC 3 infotainment system, which has both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto that integrate nicely with both IOS and Android-powered smartphones. Wards Auto described the SYNC 3 as "wonderfully capable." Also mentioned was the crossover's foot-controlled liftgate that was described as a useful and pleasant feature.

To top it off, judges were especially impressed with the FordPass mobile app, and its integration with the SYNC Connect.

Features aside, the 2017 Ford Escape has also been praised for its exterior design. It has the same trapezoidal grille borrowed from the 2015 model. The side vents are also wider and a bit more rectangular.

Also noteworthy are the exceptional forward visibility and the tall ride height. These are two features consumers indicted they are really looking for in a crossover.

Consumers also have the option to upgrade to a 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine that provides best-in-class torque.

The Ford Escape has also made headlines elsewhere. The 2016 model also secured a number five spot in U.S. News and World Reports' rankings for compact SUVs. The 2015 model came in at number six and also reported a record high sales of 306,492 units.

With such high praise for the beloved crossover, it is definitely a vehicle that should be on your radar if you are scouting for a compact SUV. Visit Performance Automall Tooele to look at our full lineup of crossovers and other vehicles we have available. We hope to see you soon!
