The Ford Escape SUV is set to undergo a mid-cycle facelift operation for the 2017 model year, and if you’re on the lookout for the most recent, most thorough spy shots, we’ve got you covered: Autoblog has procured some new photographs which walk us through the entire camouflage-clad 2017 Ford Escape, both inside and out.
These spy shots seem to corroborate what we had stated was most likely a 2017 Ford Escape captured on video by The Fast Lane Car; as we said then, the front end has been seen to, and granted narrower headlamps which come to a more pronounced point around the front fenders. The SUV has adopted a hexagon-shaped grille akin to most of the rest of Ford’s lineup, and it should look quite at home parked next to the new Ford Edge, the Explorer, and the Focus on dealership lots.
Inside, the center stack is all-new, and no infotainment screen can be seen in the photos; most likely, the unit is concealed within the dash while not in-use. Autoblog also points out that the gear-shift lever has moved down between the seats, leaving more room for physical controls for the HVAC system and head unit.
The 2017 Ford Escape will, of course, come equipped with the new SYNC 3 infotainment system; the revised software is coming to plenty of 2016 model year Fords – the Escape included. With any luck, the next time we spot the new 2017 Ford Escape, its costume will lend us insight to a few more details.
