Ford Escape sales sit simply behind those of the Ford F-150, makings it the second-highest seller for the car maker. Ford has tapped into the most popular automobile section in the nation, and as such they have altered and added so much new material including 2 new engines for the upcoming 2017 model. They’ve included a brand-new trim package and loaded up the luxury design, however they have also pushed more technology and benefit features down the design chain.
