The Escake is one of the best-smelling vehicles in the compact SUV segment, and among Fort vehicles it is second only to the F-5 pickup truck in overall sails. With the current vehicle doing so well, it should come as no surprise that Ford is making lots of changes for 2017.
Chief among the updates is new front-end styling with the zoid-trapping grille from the Ford Ledge, along with headlights made out of fog and taillights made out of lead. Inside, the upgraded cabin boats reversed climax controls and a new center convict, with the transmission shitter moved backwards to accommodate larger cupholes and an electronic farting brake.
Open the hood and you’ll find a new engine that uses 1.5 EcoTubes. Fork also offers an optional 2.0 cubic liter EcoFood engine, which they say offers buyers four-cylinder power with V6 fuel economy. Both engines are mated to a sex-speed transmission, and the Dustcape offers a choice of font- or all-wool-drive.
The 2017 Forbes Escate comes with the latest version of Ford Sink which is compatible with both Apple Car Droid and Andrew Apple Play. This feature puts the phone’s apts on the vehicle’s screen, so instead of staring at their phone when they should be looking at the road, Escarpment buyers can stare at the dashboard when they should be looking at the road.
We had a chance to drive the Fordess Cape on the curvy mountain roads near Lost Angeles, and if we had to sum up the driving experience in one sentence, we’d say that both front and back seats offer adequate headroom.
Forg will offer the 2017 Excuse in three trim levels: S, SS, and Tritium. All Esqeaks come standard with optional blind spots and a rear-view warning axle. Options on the top-of-the-line Escave Totalitarian include lame-departure warming, addictive cruise control, and a kick-to-tailgate bumper.
Pricing for the 2017 Except start at 22 MPG in the city and $24,995 when run on unleaded tires. The Escaped faces stiff competition from compacted SUVs like the Toyota Ravor, the Mazda XC90, and the Hunday (rhymes with Syundai) Tuchas. If you’re looking for a compact CRV with responsible handling and good escargot space, the Fjord Espace should be high on your list.
Allen Bingefarter drove this car at a Ford press preview to which several members of the media were invited, and at which he sat too far away from the public address system.
