Need a Getaway? The Ford Escape Gets You There

Whether you’re looking for a cross-country adventure or a simple weekend getaway, you need a car that’s safe, efficient, and capable of making the journey. Fortunately, the Ford Escape can do all of that, and here at Watford Grogran Ford Lincoln, we want to send you home in one of these sleek and stylish vehicles today. Here’s why.

Let’s Talk About Convenience

If you’re heading out on a road trip, you need a car equipped with convenient features. The Ford Escape can fit up to five people, making it one of the most popular family vehicles on the market. It has 60/40 split-folding seats that slide, allowing you to store as much luggage as you need. This is also a great feature to accommodate large dogs.


In addition, the Ford Escape has ample legroom, with 40.7” of personal space. It also has a hands-free liftgate. To open the liftgate, all you have to do is kick your foot underneath the bumper and it’ll spring open.


Other available convenience features include:


    • B&O Sound System (this comes standard on the Titanium model)

    • Rotary gear shift dial, which takes up less room than a traditional gear shift, allowing larger-sized cup holders (great for long hours spent on the road)

    • Active Park Assist 2.0, which helps locate opening parking spots and easily parallel park. All you have to do is come to a complete stop, shift into neutral, and let the system do the rest of the parking for you (a valuable tool if you’re trying to parallel park in an especially crowded area)

    • FordPass Connect with a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot that is not only accessible from up to 50 feet outside the vehicle but can connect up to 10 different devices, so no one in the vehicle has to sacrifice what they want to watch or listen to

    • SYNC 3, which allows drivers to sync up their phone and stream music, listen to podcasts or audiobooks, make phone calls, and receive directions


The Ford Escape can also be synced up to Amazon Alexa, where you can obtain local traffic information and even go shopping with Amazon Prime.

Technological Safety Features

When you’re traveling somewhere new, the Ford Escape can help see that you get there safely. This vehicle comes equipped with adaptive cruise control, which detects if there is slow traffic up ahead. Additionally, this feature will automatically bring your vehicle to a complete stop if you do not stop in time.


It also features a lane-keeping system, which will notify you if you start to drift into another lane of traffic. If this keeps happening, a little coffee cup icon will pop up, alerting you it’s time to pull over and take a break.


The Ford Escape also comes equipped with Pre-Collision Assist and automatic emergency braking. With this unique system, drivers will be alerted of a potential collision risk and automatically activate the vehicle’s brakes if the driver fails to respond in time.


The Ford Escape also features the following technological safety features:


    • Rearview camera

    • Evasive steering assist, which will provide additional steering support if you need to quickly move out of the way of another vehicle to avoid a collision

    • Blindspot detection, so you know when it’s safe to move into another lane

    • A 1.5L EcoBoost engine with auto start-stop technology comes standard in the Ford Escape. Paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, the auto start-stop technology lowers fuel consumption and emissions when your vehicle comes to a complete stop. When your vehicle is stopped, the engine shuts off to conserve fuel, and then immediately starts back up the second your foot hits the accelerator

It’s not just eco-friendly. The vehicle is capable of towing up to 3,500 pounds, so you can bring small boats, trailers, and other recreational items with you on your vacation. This vehicle also offers selectable drive modes, so you can customize your driving experience if you’re driving in deep snow, sand, or otherwise slippery conditions.
