1. New tech that is simple and straightforward

New, but not new-fangled. Ford designed the new Escape with some of the most advanced technology you'll find on any vehicle in Bismarck.

And it's not just about touch screens and cameras. This intelligent crossover simplifies your driving experience with voice-command SYNC system, a hands-free liftgate, and a FordPass app to help you keep track of your vehicle's location and status.

But the tech runs deeper than just bells and whistles. The new 2017 Escape also keeps you safe with useful tech features like a BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) that uses radar to detect vehicles in your blind spot.

The new Escape in Bismarck also goes beyond conventional cruise control with available Adaptive Cruise Control, which lets you select both the speed and distance you want to maintain from any vehicles in front of you on the highway. When traffic ahead slows down, your Escape automaticallys slows down, and then resumes the preset speed when the traffic speeds up again.

With features like this, the new 2017 Escape is smarter than ever. It helps you do just about anything – from alerting you to unintentional lane drifting to auto-maneuvering you into (or out of) a tight parking spot, to keeping you connected while you have your eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel.  

All of these available options are ready for you to test out at our dealership in Bismarck, so browse our Escape inventory now and stop by for a tech-filled test drive.
