City Driving In The Ford Escape

City Driving In The Ford Escape

City driving requires a unique skillset. That’s true for vehicles as much as it is for people. Look at the 2017 Ford Escape. Overall, it’s a very versatile crossover, but it also happens to thrive in the urban environment.

Read any literature on the Ford Escape, and you’ll find that folks appreciate, often above all else, the way that the Escape handles on the road. No one needs to feel every bump in the road, but no one wants to feel like they are riding in a boat. Conduct some city driving in the Ford Escape and you’ll experience firsthand that perfect balance between comfort and response. The steering response is designed to give an impression of nimble movement, and it succeeds admirably in that regard. This is important on those tight, unforgiving city streets.

A number of other features make the Ford Escape perfect for ambling around in the bowels of the city. Driving can be unpredictable, no matter where you are. But with buildings and parked cars obscuring your vision in the city, the available Forward Collision Warning on the Ford Escape is simply indispensable. Meanwhile, the Start-Stop technology means you don’t have to feel bad about the similar start-stop nature of city traffic.

The 2017 Ford Escape is also known to offer an exceptionally quiet ride, an attribute that can really come in handy driving in the city. Visit us here at Shults Ford Lincoln Wexford today to find out just how well-equipped the 2017 Ford Escape really is.
