Available class-exclusive* hands-free liftgate

The new hands-free liftgate is incredibly easy to use. With the available Intelligent Access key, just kick your foot under the bumper and the power liftgate will automatically open, providing easy access to the cargo area. And both this liftgate and the available power liftgate allow you to adjust the liftgate height, which is helpful for lower overhangs.

Available SYNC® with MyFord Touch®

Available SYNC® with MyFord Touch® lets you do so much. It features an eight-inch LCD center touch screen, a four-inch LCD screen located on the instrument cluster for quick, easy viewing, dual USB ports and Wi-Fi® capability. All it takes to use SYNC with MyFord Touch are simple voice commands or the touch of a button.* You can listen to song lists from your MP3 player, USB or portable hard drive. If someone calls you while you’re listening to your music, no problem – SYNC with MyFord Touch alerts you. You can control the interior climate. And just say the word and you can command the available Navigation System to guide you to a destination. With integrated SiriusXM Traffic and SiriusXM Travel Link, you’ll have your choice of fastest, shortest and EcoRoute. In this mode, the Navigation System instantly calculates the most fuel-efficient route and can help you achieve better fuel economy.**

*Driving while distracted can result in loss of vehicle control. Only use SYNC/MyFord Touch/other devices, even with voice commands, when it is safe to do so. Some features may be locked out while the vehicle is in gear. **SiriusXM Satellite Radio, Traffic and Travel Link subscriptions sold separately or as a package after trial expires.

Available class-exclusive* active park assist

If you could use a little assistance when parallel parking, Ford has your helping hand. It’s called active park assist. While you’re driving slowly near parking spots, simply activate park assist and it looks for an available parking spot. Ultrasonic sensors measure the distance to the curb and between parked cars. Once a spot that’s big enough is identified, you’re signaled to stop and accept the system’s assistance. All you do is control the shifting, accelerating and braking.

*Class is Small Utilities.

Available BLIS® with cross-traffic alert

When a vehicle is detected in the blind spot zone, BLIS® illuminates an indicator light, providing a warning in the outside mirror. The cross-traffic alert feature uses blind spot monitoring sensors to audibly and visually alert you to approaching cross traffic while you are slowly backing out of a driveway or parking spot.

Available Intelligent Access with push-button start

Starting your Escape is a breeze, thanks to available Intelligent Access with push-button start. First, make sure the key fob is in your pocket or somewhere in the vehicle. Next, press the brake pedal and then the start button. Just shift into gear and go.

Available Audio System from Sony®

HD Radio™ technology, included with the available Audio System from Sony®, is the digital evolution of analog AM/FM radio and is used by AM and FM radio stations to transmit digital audio and data along with their analog signals. Digital broadcasts deliver crystal clear audio with no static or distortion and have the capability of high-quality surround sound. Best of all, HD Radio comes with no monthly subscription fee. Plus, you get the convenience of iTunes® tagging. If you hear a song you’d like to purchase, you don’t have to remember it. Just touch a button and the information will be stored and transferred to your iPod®,* which will pass it on to iTunes where it will be offered to you in your queue the next time you shop there.

Advanced safety protection

The 2013 Ford Escape is equipped to help keep you out of harm’s way. It has control features such as standard AdvanceTrac® with RSC® (Roll Stability Control™), featuring Curve Control – which will slow you down when it senses that you’re going too fast for a particular curve – and traction control.* And because maintaining the proper air pressure in your tires is critical, the standard Tire Pressure Monitoring System alerts you when your tires are underinflated (not available on spare tire). To help protect you in the event of a collision, Escape features the Personal Safety System™, next-generation dual-stage driver and front-passenger airbags,** a driver’s knee airbag, and front seat-mounted side airbags. Escape also features the Safety Canopy® System with two-row side-curtain airbags. Peace of mind. It’s a standard feature in Escape.

*Remember, even advanced technology cannot overcome the laws of physics. It's always possible to lose control of a vehicle due to inappropriate driver input for the conditions.
**Always wear your safety belt and secure children in the rear seat.
