With Intelligent 4WD System, BLIS® with Cross-Traffic Alert, and Enhanced Active Park Assist the 2018 Ford Escape safely takes you anywhere. Here are some new features of the 2018 Ford Escape.

Auto Start-Stop Technology

Escape has available auto start-stop technology, which can help reduce emissions and fuel consumption during city driving. When the Escape comes to a stop the engine automatically shuts off, and restarts when you release the brake pedal.

Available Enhanced Active Park Assist

Parallel parking is simple with available enhanced active park assist. When driving slowly and when activated, Escape uses ultrasonic sensors to scan for an appropriate space and signals when it finds one. With the system engaged, Escape steers you into the space while you control shifting, accelerating, and braking.

Escape can also steer you out of tight spots with available Park Out Assist. Just press the button, and Escape will give you instructions on shifting, moving forward, and moving back. The system steers you out of the space automatically, all you have to do is shift, accelerate, and brake.

Lane-Keeping System

If you begin to drift out of your lane, the system will alert you by gently vibrating the steering wheel and/or applying steering torque to help you stay in your lane. If the Lane-Keeping System senses repeated drifting, a coffee cup symbol will display in your message centre, letting you know it’s time to pull over and take a break.

Adaptive Cruise Control and Forward Collision Warning with Brake Support

Adaptive cruise control is a smart available feature on your 2018 Ford Escape that helps you maintain the desired pre-set safe gap from the vehicle in front of you while using cruise control. Escape can sense slowing traffic ahead, reduce your vehicle’s speed to maintain the gap, and return to your pre-set speed when traffic clears.

Hands-Free Foot-Activated Liftgate

Ford Escape offers an available Hands-Free Foot-Activated Liftgate, and there’s no other vehicle in its class to offer it. You can open the liftgate even when your hands are full. With the available intelligent access key in your pocket, just kick your foot under the bumper and the liftgate opens automatically. To close it, press the button on the liftgate or just kick your foot under the bumper again.
