Headlines seem forever devoted to the F-Series - with every quarter revealing expanding profits and extraordinary sales. These trucks dominate the charts, and they serve as the cornerstones of the Ford brand.
They’re not, however, the only foundation upon which the Big Blue Oval rests. Instead the 2017 Escape delivers an exceptional margin growth.
As the Lincoln County Journal explains, the 2017 Escape has helped to propel Ford to the top of the charts - serving as its top-selling SUV. In October alone, it secured a strong 23,064 total units. This allowed it to blitz past the competition (including the Honda HR-V and the Toyota RAV-4), and it’s also pushed the brand to record-breaking heights. Annual sales have risen a steady 2.2%, leading to billions of new profits.
We’re not surprised. The 2017 Escape proves a perfect option for Seattle drivers, connecting them to a robust 2.5L i-VCT engine. This yields 168 HP and 170 lb.-ft of torque, allowing the platform to accommodate every all-terrain adventure (achieve up to 1,500 pounds of conventional trailering). Available AWD pairs with AdvanceTrac control, while split-folding seats provide up to 64.8 cu.-ft of cargo space. Adaptability defines every mile.
