Always ready to perform when you are.

The 2017 Ford Escape is always up to the task at hand, whether it’s towing a 3,500-lb. (1,587kg) trailer, accommodating a full complement of passengers and their cargo, or moving along confidently on rainy or snow-slick roads. The Ford Escape offers great versatility, with rear seats that fold easily when the need for cargo space takes priority. The available Intelligent 4WD System adjusts torque distribution front to rear to deliver optimum traction. Torque Vectoring Control helps balance the power through selective braking. And trailer sway control helps you tow with greater peace of mind.19

The new electric parking brake uses a motor at each rear caliper instead of a mechanically operated cable. It provides fingertip convenience at the touch of a switch in place of having to pull and release a heavier and more space-consuming lever.
Cargo Capacity

Cargo Capacity

The Ford Escape can seat up to five. And its versatility lets you convert rear seat room to extra space — up to a maximum 68 cu. ft. (1,925L) — when transporting cargo takes priority.


Fold both rear seat backs for a flat load surface and 1,925L (68 cu. ft.) of total cargo space. Or fold down either of the 60/40 split rear seat backs for more cargo space and still carry one or two rear passengers. If you’re carrying items such as luggage, leave the seats up and you have 962L (34 cu. ft.) of space. On select models, the load floor is adjustable. Set it in the high position and you have a flat load floor when the seats are folded down. In its low position, you’ll have additional cargo room.
