2016 model year changes

The Ford Escape carries over into 2016 mostly unaltered, though the big change is the addition of Sync 3, a new infotainment system that replaces the old MyFord Touch system of previous years. The system provides a new interface with a capacitive touchscreen. Elsewhere, a Chrome appearance package and a leather package are both available on the SE trim.

Special features for 2016

The 2016 Ford Escape is a sleek, rakish, modern design, yet it is surprisingly roomy inside. Also surprising is how well the Escape responds and handles -- as if it were a sport wagon. The Escape's powertrains are standouts in this class, both offering more power than you get elsewhere, plus excellent fuel economy. In terms of tech features, between the new "Sync 3" infotainment system, an active park assist system and active-safety features like BLIS, the Escape stands far apart from more plainly presented crossover wagons.
