Driver Assist Technology in the Ford Escape

The 2017 Ford Escape comes with a range of driver assist features at various trim levels that help reduce your odds of getting into an accident and give you peace of mind so you're more relaxed behind the wheel.

One of these technologies is BLIS, or Blind Spot Information System, with Cross-Traffic Alert. This feature alerts you when another vehicle is in your blind spot with an indicator light in your side mirror. When you know there's a vehicle in your blind spot, you'll be more alert about staying in your lane and you'll know not to change lanes until it passes. Cross-Traffic Alert also uses radar to sense when a vehicle is coming at you when you're pulling out of a spot and tells you to stop before a collision can occur.

Another innovative feature is the Lane Keeping System. The system alerts you when you're drifting into another lane by vibrating the steering wheel. It also has Lane Keeping Aid, which steers you back into your lane if you're drifting too far out of it. It may also suggest that you take a driving break to get some rest, which can be helpful when you're taking a long road trip.

Enhanced Active Parking Assist is the perfect feature for drivers in the city who do a lot of parking in tight spaces. This system uses four different technologies that work together to find a spot and actively steer you safely into a parking space.

Finally, the Escape comes with available Adaptive Cruise Control and Forward Collision Warning with Brake Support. Adaptive Cruise Control activates when cruise control is engaged, letting you set the distance between yourself and the vehicle in front of you as well as your speed. When you start to get too close to a vehicle in front of you, your Brake Support will automatically slow the car down.

These are just a few of the active safety features available on the 2017 Escape. For more information give us a call at Bob Sight Ford!
