Next-Generation 2017 Ford Escape Rumors
2017 Ford Escape Rumors
When the Ford Escape originally went on sale back in the year 2000, it was an instant success. Drivers instantly fell in love with the styling, capability and surprisingly spacious interior of the compact SUV. That early success has continued to grow throughout the years, and many people consider it to be the best vehicle in its competitive segment. There have been three generations of the Escape so far, and the most recent generation was released back in 2012. Therefore, there have been a lot of rumors stating that Ford has a new redesigned Ford Escape coming in the near future for the 2017 model year. We have some evidence to support these rumors, so we are going to tell you everything that we know about the next-generation 2017 Ford Escape rumors.
Is the Next-Generation Ford Escape Coming out in 2017?
Spy Shots of the 2017 Ford Escape
There were recently some spy shots of the 2017 Ford Escape captured. Although the compact SUV was heavily camouflaged, it was still obvious that there are some major styling changes. We do not have permission to show you images of the spy shots that were taken, however, we can tell you about the styling changes that were captured in those images. There was a completely redesigned front end, which is probably the most significant styling change. The front end no longer resembles the Fusion, and looks closer to front end on the larger Ford Edge model now. We noticed that there is a bulkier grille and deeper grille, which should really stand out in traffic. There were also some styling changes occurring in the rear of the vehicle, such as new redesigned tail lamps.
2017 Ford Escape Technology
We know that the current-generation Escape is coming with Ford’s new SYNC 3 infotainment system, but will not have Apple CarPlay or Android Auto capability. Therefore, a lot of experts feel that those two features will be added for the next-generation of the Escape.
