New 2016 Ford Escape

2016 Ford Escape Overview

New/Notable:
  • First Ford vehicle to get the new SYNC 3 infotainment system
  • New leather comfort package
  • Three engine options
The Ford Escape gets a big technology update for 2016, becoming the first vehicle in Ford’s lineup to offer the latest iteration of their infotainment system, SYNC 3.

Exterior styling remains identical to last year’s model. The Escape is in some ways the embodiment of the modern crossover, with styling that is more similar to a car than a rugged, traditional SUV. 17-inch steel wheels come standard, with 18- and 19-inch alloys available. For added convenience, a hands-free power liftgate is optional; if you have the keyfob in your pocket or purse and approach the rear of the Escape, you can open the liftgate simply by waving your foot under the rear bumper.

Under the hood, the Escape has good powertrain diversity for this class, with three distinct engine options. A 168-hp, 2.5-liter four-cylinder is the base engine and a pair of EcoBoost engines are optional. The first is a 173-hp, turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder with a larger 231-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder functioning as a V-6 replacement. Front-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission are standard, with all-wheel drive also available.

Inside, the biggest update to the Escape is the addition of SYNC 3. SYNC 3 is optional on the mid-level SE trim and standard on the line-topping Titanium (base S models keep the old SYNC system). It thoroughly overhauls the old system, with enhanced usability, improved voice recognition, and better responsiveness. On the navigation system you can now pinch and pull the map to zoom, the menus have been reorganized for easier use, and there are now redundant physical controls for the audio system below the screen – a welcome change from the old MyFord Touch systems.

Standard features include air conditioning, the old SYNC infotainment system, Bluetooth connectivity, power windows/locks, and steering wheel mounted controls for the cruise control and audio system. Also available are leather upholstery, powered/heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, ssatellite radio, navigation, and push button start. The five-seat Escape offers 34.3 cubic feet of cargo space which expands to 67.8 cubic feet with the 60/40-split second-row folded down.

Standard safety features include six airbags, a rearview camera, electronic stability control, antilock brakes, and Ford’s MyKey system. MyKey allows parents to set limits on the Escape if young drivers are using it, including setting limits on the stereo and speed alerts.
