Looking for a Commuter Car? Try the Ford Escape

If you’ve felt like you wanted to go where no one knew your name, you could probably use the Ford Escape to take you there! The Ford Escape is one of the first vehicles our sales team at Grogan Ford recommends when asked about top-quality commuter cars.


Totally redesigned in 2020, there are several models available to customize and personalize. Each model provides the best safety and security features around, along with reliability, comfortable interiors, and the latest and greatest technology. You’ll like what you see.

Safety and Security

Many of the safety and security features you’ve come to expect from Ford are standard on the Ford Escape, including:


    • Personal Safety System

Airbag-related injuries are reduced when this system quickly analyzes several determining factors in case of an accident and deploys safety devices accordingly. Driver and passenger dual-stage airbag supplemental restraints, front safety belts with pretensioners, energy management retractors, front crash severity sensors, and restraint system warning lights and back-up tones are just a sampling of the features provided.


    • Safety Canopy System

Our inflatable curtain, crash sensors, and even a rollover sensor are designed to eliminate injuries from the side airbags’ deployment.


    • Belt-Minder (Front and Second Row)

Seatbelts save lives. The belt-minder is a supplemental warning. Not only does a chime sound if a passenger fails to buckle their seatbelt, but a graphic illuminates in the dashboard. You can’t say you “forgot” with this feature in place!


    • SOS Post-Crash Alert System

If you drive on backroads or love someone who drives late into the night, this is a confidence-builder for sure. Should airbags deploy within the vehicle, this system automatically flashes the turn signal lamps and sounds the horn three times at four-second intervals until the hazard control button or the panic button are pressed.


    • Ford MyKey is a key you program with safety features that you feel are most appropriate for your driver. Although first-time drivers aren’t big fans of this feature, it is a literal lifesaver and well worth investigating. You cannot be too careful, especially with novice drivers. Some features include:


    • a safety belt reminder with repeating alarm

    • earlier activating low fuel light, allowing time for good choices

    • maximum speed settings

    • maximum volume settings for the audio system


If your make/model is equipped with features, MyKey can be set to:


    • always be on for Advance Trac or traction control

    • 911 Assist or Emergency Assist

    • Do Not Disturb, which prevents incoming texts and phone calls while driving


Selectable Drive Modes are a big part of going where you want to go when you want to get there! Designed with all kinds of terrains in mind, this provides the vehicle with incredible handling by modifying the electronic stability control system and allowing you the confidence you need in all sorts of situations. Choose between Eco, Sport, Normal, Slippery, and Deep Snow/Sand.


Commuters are big fans of available All-Wheel Drive Disconnect. If you don’t need it, don’t use it. We think it should be that simple. Plus, we know everyone will appreciate the ability to achieve maximum fuel conservation by reducing both the drag and the drivetrain’s energy demands. Yes, please!


We have all the space you need for those hard-to-fit finds or bulky bags that are always an awkward fit. A customer favorite, the 60/40 Split-Fold Down is the ultimate in adaptability and convenience for folks like you who are on the move.


Passengers in the backseat will notice a big difference in legroom with our all-new sliding feature that provides best-in-class second-row legroom with 40.7 inches of available stretch, too. Make sure everybody settles in and gets comfortable – now they can!


We don’t forget our drivers, either. The 10-Way Power Driver seat with Front Row Heat takes the bite out of those colder mornings. You’ll also find convenient storage cubbies for all the odds and ends you need when you adventure forth!


You need the ability to stay connected even when you are getting away. SYNC 3 brings you the power of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. With simple music search, capacitive touchscreen, enhanced voice recognition, and climate control, the ability to make safe and easy decisions is right at the tips of your fingers.


FordPass with Connect, a free membership app, is a standard feature on the Escape. The roadside assistance feature means you should download this app before you even leave the dealership. Run out of gas? We can bring you some. Have a flat tire? We can fix it. Lock yourself out? We’ve got you covered. We provide peace of mind – all within the palm of your hand.
