Travel Well in North Dakota

Simply put, the new Ford Escape is smart. You're all set for a controlled and confident adventure with the performance and handling perks of this SUV. Here's what you can look forward to.

Curve Control

If you're going too fast on a curve, this technology will slow down the vehicle using throttle reduction and anti-lock braking. Torque Vector Control transfers torque to the wheels with the most grip to reduce understeer and force the front end to hug the inside of the curve.

Shift Gears

The six-speed SelectShift® automatic transmission offers a sport mode ("S") to give you the feel of a manual and more control over gear selection.

All-Weather Confidence

The available Intelligent 4WD System transfers torque from front to rear wheels as needed, ensuring a precise blend of handling and traction at all times.

Stop-and-Go Sensibility 

Available EcoBoost® engines with Auto Start-Stop Technology can help reduce fuel consumption and vehicle emissions during Bismarck driving when your vehicle comes to a stop and is idling.

Towing Capabilities 

The available 245-hp 2.9L EcoBoost® engine and the Class II Trailor Tow Package let you tow up to 3,500 lbs. And all with confidence, thanks to trailer sway control.
