Ford Escape Interior

Home Away From Home

Inside the Ford Escape cabin, you’ll find seating for up to five passengers and 104 cubic feet of passenger volume. Riders in the back seats will have plenty of space to stretch out thanks to its 40.7 inches of rear legroom.

For a dash of luxury, you can upgrade the 2021 Ford Escape with available features like leather-trimmed seats with perforated inserts and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

During the day, you can open the optional panoramic Vista Roof® for an open-air ride with expansive sky views. On nighttime drives, you can turn on the available ambient lighting for a personal light show to pair with your playlist.


Ford Escape Technology Features

Entertaining & Safety-Enhancing Technology

When traveling in the Ford Escape, you can stay effortlessly connected through the optional SYNC® 3 touchscreen display with voice-controlled technology. While keeping your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road, you can change the song, make a phone call, and more.

To boost your senses on the road and provide extra backup when you need it most, the Ford Escape comes standard with the following driver-assist Ford Co-Pilot360™ Technology features. A few of these include:

  • Lane-Keeping System
  • Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking
  • BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert

The Lane-Keeping System alerts you through steering wheel vibrations if you begin to swerve out of your lane and can even provide corrective steering. Similarly, Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking warns you of an oncoming collision and applies the brakes, if necessary, to help avoid or mitigate an impact.
