Great handling

Active Grille Shutter

When it comes to fuel efficiency, a great engine is just the beginning. Escape features an Active Grille Shutter which closes to reduce aerodynamic ‘drag’ and opens to help cool the engine when required – so you save even more on fuel.

Torque

Torque Vectoring Control

Escape is engineered to handle all life's twists and turns. On winding roads or when manoeuvring tight bends, Torque Vectoring Control transfers torque to the wheels with the most grip, to help enhance control and virtually eliminate under-steer.
