Ford continues to provide a diverse selection of sport utility and crossover vehicles for the 2017 model year. Serving as the entry-level for the brand's urban-suited crossover vehicles is the Ford Escape. The Ford Escape's styling and equipment are refreshed for 2017. Along with an undated exterior, the 2017 Escape gains a push-button electronic parking brake, larger interior storage compartments and the expansion of Auto Start-Stop technology as standard on both EcoBoost engines. The Ford Edge and Flex enter 2017 with only minor changes while the seven-passenger capable Explorer is now available with an XLT Sport Appearance Package. At the top of the 2017 Ford sport utility vehicle lineup, the Expedition retains its truck-based physique. Boasting a robust 365 horsepower from a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost engine, the 2017 Ford Expedition can tow up to 9,200 pounds.
