Modern cars are becoming more like computers each year. They come equipped with plenty of advanced features to entertain, connect, and keep you safe. The 2017 FordEscape checks all of those boxes, but it is especially adept in the safety category.
Along with standard safety features like anti-lock brakes and airbags, the Escape is equipped with numerous high-tech safety systems to keep you and your passengers safe on the road.
Parents will particularly appreciate the standard MyKey system, which allows certain keys to come with specific driving parameters, such as volume and speed limits. Also standard on the base S trim are automatic headlights and a rearview camera.
Beyond that, available safety technology includes rear parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, automatic high-beam control, lane departure warning and intervention, a drowsy driver warning system, and automated parking.
When fully equipped, this technology works together to monitor nearly every angle of the Escape in order to help prevent an accident before it happens. By warning the driver of a potential collision, this can potentially provide the driver with time to make any necessary corrections.
