What Safety Features and Driver Assistance Systems Come With the 2017 Ford Escape?
Driver assistance features have taken automotive safety to a whole new level. And the 2017 Ford Escape is chock full of them, including adaptive cruise control, collision warning with brake support, enhanced active park assist, a lane-keeping system complete with lane-keeping assist and lane-keeping aid, the Driver Alert System and the SYNC Connect system. We realize we might have thrown you a little with that last one, since the SYNC Connect system is best known as an infotainment system. But it does some much more than that, including keeping you safe by letting you start, lock, unlock and locate your new Ford Escape thanks to the impressive Ford Pass smartphone platform. This system also allows you to keep an eye on the maintenance and service needs of your new Escape, so that you can always keep it in the best shape possible. Like the SYNC Connect infotainment system doubling as a safety feature, you might also not know about the Driver Alert System. This intriguing new system uses data from your lane-keeping feature to watch for signs of fatigued driving. If it finds evidence of any of those signs, it will alert you on the instrument cluster and suggest you pull over for a rest.
