The 2017 Ford Escape is a compact crossover SUV that comes in the S, SE and Titanium trims. Having a mid-size platform, the 2017 Ford Edge is a crossover SUV that's available in the SE, SEL, Titanium and Sport models. Both vehicles offer the turbocharged EcoBoost engines and the SelectShift automatic transmission. Notable accident-avoidance features in the Escape and Edge include the Adaptive Cruise Control and Enhanced Active Park Assist.


The Ford Escape offers the 1.5 L EcoBoost engine that delivers nearly 180 horsepower. Having a twin-scroll turbocharger, the 2.0 L EcoBoost engine generates just under 250 hp. Both of these four-cylinder engines come with the Auto Start/Stop technology that improves fuel economy. When equipped with the 2.5 L iVCT engine that has a naturally aspirated induction system, the Escape gets approximately 170 hp. Just like the Escape model, the Ford Edge is also available with the 2.0 L EcoBoost engine. With the 2.7 L EcoBoost V6 engine, you have access to slightly more than 310 hp. Additionally, the 3.5 L Ti-VCT V6 engine is rated at about 280 hp. Both of these crossover SUVs include the SelectShift automatic transmission system that has six gear speeds. This signature transmission smoothly transfers torque to the Intelligent All-Wheel Drive (AWD) that maximizes traction on different surfaces. Handling is also optimized by the AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control.


The signature SYNC 3 infotainment system is available in the Ford Escape and Edge. Having a smartphone-style interface with a pinch-to-zoom function, this multimedia platform includes GPS navigation software with live updates by SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link. Music on SiriusXM Satellite Radio is accessible in both of these crossover SUVs. In the Escape, the Sony sound system includes 10 total speakers. The Edge offers an audio system by Sony that comes with a dozen speakers. With the SYNC Connect portal, you can use a compatible smartphone to remotely manage and monitor both cars. The FordPass application has to be downloaded in order to use remote services that start the ignition and unlock the doors. You'll also find multiple USB ports and a 110-v power outlet in the Escape and Edge.


Featuring the Brake Support technology, the Adaptive Cruise Control is available in the Ford Escape and Edge. Capable of stopping and restarting itself, this sophisticated cruise control system is also linked to the Forward Collision Warning. Both models offer the Lane-Keeping System that issues vibrations in the steering during an unintentional drifting out of a lane. Side collisions might be minimized when you react to the cues from the Blind Spot Information System that's paired with the Rear Cross Traffic Alert. The Escape and Edge may be equipped with the Enhanced Active Park Assist, which provides reliable guidance for perpendicular and parallel parking. With some help from the Park-Out Assist, you'll confidently move out of a parking space. The Side Sensing will warn you of any stationary obstacles that might be in the way. Both of these Ford crossover SUVs also have the SOS Post-Crash Alert System that automatically comes on after an accident.
