In the name of globalization, it is a model of the vehicle can be marketed in a number of countries with the same specifications. It also adopted a new Ford Escape SUV in its Escape 2017.
Engine and Performance
After a successful course in China, 2017 Escape models carry smaller engine capacity, ie 1.498cc, from previously 1,596 cc. Unfortunately, a decrease in volume by 5 mm step machine was not accompanied by the use of new technology to boost the performance. Generally, there are decreasing in the volume of step machine, along with various updates, primarily redesigning the cylinder head to increase the cooling process and integrate exhaust manifolds and reduced friction engine components. However, the Eco-Boost technology owned New Escape was reportedly turned out to be powered by 1 hp compared to the 1.6-liter 179 hp at 6,000 rpm. But based on testing of Motor Trend, the torque would be reduced 7 to 177 lb-ft at 2,500 rpm. For acceleration Escape SE AWD models are able to penetrate time of 9.6 seconds from 0-100 km / h and 17.1 seconds to cover a distance of 400 meters at a speed of 126.4 km / h. As for Escape 1.6 Eco-Boost all-wheel drive, acceleration from 0-100 km / h reached in 8.2 seconds and the 400 meters in 16.3 seconds at a speed of 134.2 km / h. As for fuel consumption of 1.6 liter engine of Escape 2016 EPA is registered versions of 9.3 / 13.6 / 11 km / liter for the city / town / combination with two-wheel drive system and 9.3 / 12.3 / 10.6 km / liter with all-wheel drive. Then for the 2017 Escape 1.5-liter engine, fuel consumption is 9.7 / 12.7 / 11 km / liter for the movement of two wheels and a 9.3 / 11.9 / 10.2 km / liter for four-wheel motion.
Although this Escape 2017 is smaller, the performance of the Escape 2017 is rated enough to travel in the city especially for defensive driving style. Fortunately, with a smaller torque, it is generally more convenient for Escape to be controlled in all modes of driving. One new feature in the 2017 Escape is admirable is the auto-start / stop system. The system works very soft and smooth. To turn the machine is very quickly. Moreover, the existence of steering-wheel paddle shift is also a distinct advantage for Escape in its class.
