If you live in southern California, you are no stranger to commuting. We know most commuters are looking for fuel efficiency and capability, comfort, safety, and fun features that make the ride less tedious. Your Southern California Ford dealerships have commuters covered!
Fuel Efficiency and Capability
The Ford Escape SE Sport Hybrid checks all the boxes as far as fuel efficiency and environmental safeguards are concerned. With an estimated 44 city and 37 highway miles per gallon, it’s hard to beat for efficiency. Not only will you save money at the gas station, but you’ll also save in between trips, too. With an above-average rating by J.D. Power, our goal is to keep you moving!
The 2.5L I-4 Atkinson-cycle powertrain features an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission (eCVT) and an 88kW electric motor. With the liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery smartly stored outside of the vehicle below the second-row seats’ floor rather than filling the cargo area, you have more room for all the pieces you need for adventuring!
Ford named the Escape appropriately for all intended adventure and excitement! With towing capabilities of up to 3500lbs with available 2.0L EcoBoost and Class II Trailer Tow Package, we expect that after all that weekly commuting, you’ll want to hit the trails or sit on the beach.
Ask one of the professional salespeople at any of our Southern California Ford dealers about the available All-Wheel Drive (AWD) with disconnect. This feature allows you to save fuel by disabling the rear driveline with the system that detects when AWD is unnecessary. This allows only the front wheels to propel the vehicle, reducing drag and energy demands.
If you’re spending lots of time in your vehicle, it should be an extension of the comforts of home. The Escape doesn’t disappoint! With a redesigned interior, you have sportier lines, more convenient cup holders, and storage cubbies that give the SUV a more comfortable familiarity.
The rotary gear shift dial opens space on the center console and aids with front-row comfort. With the all-new sliding feature and enviable 60/40 split-fold seats, you can have best-in-class second-row legroom with 40.7 inches of personal space.
Seating options abound and allow you to choose how you’d like to be surrounded every day. We know comfort is essential, so whatever seating package you choose, know that we’ve designed each so you’ll be comfortable, no matter what!
Safety is at the top of everyone’s minds right now. Driver and passenger safety has always been a priority for Ford. The Ford Co-Pilot360 driver assistance technologies are unlike any package of safety features you’ve experienced before. Many of these features are standard on all Ford models, so be sure to ask your knowledgeable salesperson which of these lifesaving technologies can be added to your vehicle.
BLIS with Cross-Traffic Alert
You’ll never strain and swivel trying to recheck your blind spot again. Sensors detect traffic in your blind spot and alert you to its presence with an indicator light in the side-mirror. If you don’t heed the indicator light and continue to try and change lanes, an alarm will sound.
Cross-Traffic Alert sounds a gentle alarm if you begin to reverse into oncoming cross-traffic. No more anxiety as you pull out of a crowded parking lot!
Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking
The system won’t activate the brakes unless you forget to. Scanners in the front of the vehicle measure the speed of traffic ahead of your car. If traffic is moving at a slower rate, you will be alerted to slow down to avoid a collision. If you don’t, automatic emergency braking kicks in to help you prevent or lessen the possibility of collision.
Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go
This system is like the cruise control you’re used to, except not only do you set your preferred speed, but you also get to select your preferred distance between vehicles. Should you get into traffic, the system will adapt without you having to accelerate and decelerate continuously.
The available panoramic Vista Roof makes fresh air and open vistas a priority for everybody, with a large forward panel that tilts up or opens fully, in addition to the fixed rear skylight. Let the sunshine in or enjoy a moonlit drive. The sunroof is a feature any commuter would appreciate!
Stay connected while you’re on the go with available SYNC 3 technology with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Crank up your playlists, podcasts, and enjoy hands-free calling while you’re heading to parts unknown.
