Powertrains and MPG
The 2017 Ford Escape gives drivers the power to choose by providing a total of three powertrain configurations. Each powertrain is offered in either a front-wheel drive or four-wheel drive six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission. The three available engines are:
- 2.5L iVCT: While this engine is only offered in a front-wheel drive configuration, it still boasts quite a bit of power for its size. With 168 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque, and mileage as good as 21 mpg city and 29 mpg highway, this naturally aspirated engine is quite impressive for a standard engine.
- 1.5L EcoBoost with Auto Start-Stop: A step up from the base engine is a middle tier engine that offers 179 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque with fuel economy as good as 23 mpg city and 30 mpg highway, depending on which drivetrain you select.
- 2.0L Twin-Scroll EcoBoost with Auto Start-Stop: The final and most powerful of the engine options is the 245 hp and 275 lb-ft turbocharged engine with fuel economy as high as 22 mpg city and 29 mpg highway.
The 2017 Ford Escape and its three available engines will be able to provide a comfortable and enjoyable driving experience. The addition of Auto Start-Stop technology helps to stretch out mileage to the fullest potential and reduce harmful vehicle emissions when driving in the city. To accomplish this, the engine quickly shuts off when stalled and then right back on when you press down on the accelerator. This kind of technology paired with Curve Control, Torque Vectoring Control, and AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control helps to create a vehicle that is prepared for any weather and driving conditions that are thrown its way.
