For the 2017 model year, Ford has replaced the manual parking brake on the Escape with an electric model. Ford has also taken the gear shifter and moved it back farther on the center console. This helps to increase storage space and elbow room. Overall, the new crossover offers 25 percent more front row storage space than previous models. Moving the shifter backwards also places the driver’s right arm in a more comfortable position.2017 Ford Escape front console

The space vacated by the gear shifter and parking brake has been filled by two storage bins. The bins have been designed to provide ideal storage for everyday times, such as wallets, keys, cell phones and sunglasses. The cupholders on the 2017 Escape have been revamped as well. Newly designed, the cupholders can accommodate a wide variety of bottle and cup sizes.
