The All-New Technologies in the 2018 Ford Escape

The Ford Escape has been providing drivers with amazing tech for years including a hands-free foot-activated liftgate, Intelligent 4WD and a Blind Spot Information System. And the 2018 Ford Escape will be no different for Central New Jersey drivers. That’s because the same features that make the previous edition such a hit will be returning for 2018.

2 EcoBoost Engines

If you’re looking to save on gas, then one of these fun-to-drive engines is right for you:
  • 1.5L EcoBoost engine (179 hp, up to 30 mpg highway)
  • 2.0L twin-scroll turbocharged EcoBoost engine (245 hp, up to 29 mpg highway)

That’s because both come standard with Auto Start-Stop technology, which shuts off emissions during common vehicle stops. This means the Escape will burn no fuel while you’re waiting at a light, which is great when driving around town.

Both of these engines are available in the 2018 Ford Escape SE and Titanium trims.

SYNC Connect and FordPass

If you want to stay more connected to your new Escape, the SYNC Connect app is the way to go since this feature lets you do the following from an app on your smartphone:
  • Start the vehicle & schedule specific times to start it
  • Lock or unlock the doors
  • Locate your vehicle
  • Get vital statistics like fuel level & approximate mileage

The FordPass app aims to change the relationship that people have with their vehicles. With this app, you’ll be able to check your fuel level, lock or unlock your doors, perform remote starts, and even find your vehicle. Best of all, this app is now linked with SYNC Connect.
