2015 Ford Escape Review & New Technology

2015 Ford Escape at Gresham Ford
The Ford Escape is a smart utility vehicle that is incredibly adaptive and perfect for the active NW family without being a land yacht.  The balance of technology, design and intelligent purposeful technology that provides intuitive controls makes all the difference.   The intelligent 4WD design paired with a 3500 lb towing capacity makes the 2015 Ford Escape incredibly versatile as well.  But the Escape has always had these qualities, which may be why this model has been so popular especially in Oregon.  

The 2015 Ford Escape has five Class Exclusive features that continue to set the Escape apart from its competitor.  The foot activated lift gate is optional equipment but we strongly suggest it.  This is one of those technologies that you can't remember how you got anything done before if.  The hands free foot activated lift gate comes in handy when holding groceries, dogs, babies.  The push button start system sensing the key in your purse or pocket when you are close to the vehicle and unlocks doors.  If you have teenagers you will definitely appreciated the class-exclusive My Key features as well.

The 2015 Ford Escape also offers dual USB ports so that you can connect all your USB devices.  Now you can charge your phone and your tablet at the same time.  
Easy Fuel Capless Filler

This compact SUV also is the only to offer the capless Easy Fuel filler. First this technology is helpful because you will never forget the cap at the gas station again and save time when filling up.  Next it is also better for the environment because it reduces the opportunity for fuel vapors to escape.  Ford made sure that only an object the size of a fuel filler pump can depress both tabs and allow the spring loaded metal flap to open.  This technology has been available since late 2010 and many have seen it deter those who may attempt to siphon fuel from unsuspecting motorists.  So a third advantage is the security advantage.  


The last class exclusive feature for the 2015 Ford Escape is the available SecuriCode invisible keypad.  This is a great option when you visit Farmers Markets or visit the Dog Park because you don't need your keys to get back into the vehicle, only your code.  This is one of our favorite options.  

If you had looked at the 2014 Ford Escape there are a few changes for the 2015 model year.  One update is that the 2.5L IVCT I-4 engine is now also available on the front wheel drive SE Ford Escape, adding yet another engine choice to the line up.  If you choose a Titanium trim level you will also get a front passenger 10-way power seat standard, just like the drivers seat!  The in floor storage was deleted for the 2015 year.
