The Ford Escape has always been known for its sporty performance and well-appointed cabin, but the Ford Escape safety features just might be our favorite component of the latest model. This SUV is packed with active and passive features, as well as state-of-the-art technology that can help prevent accidents from ever occurring. And the Ford Escape safety ratings speak for themselves, including a perfect NHTSA 5-Star Crash Test Rating!

Standard Features

All cars include standard features like airbags and seatbelts, but Ford does things a little differently. Instead of a typical airbag system, the Ford Escape specs include a Personal Safety System that includes dual-stage driver and front-passenger airbags, as well as a driver knee airbag and side-impact airbags. The Escape even includes a Safety Canopy system to prevent injuries in case of rollover. Each seatbelt includes height-adjustable settings, and a LATCH system is provided for child seats. And in case of emergency, all Ford Escape models include a SOS Post-Crash Alert System to provide immediate assistance. The Ford Escape has a spacious interior that allows for maximum comfort.

Driver-Assist Technology

The Ford Escape specs also include a wide variety of high-tech driver-assist features. These systems use technology like distance sensors and cameras to monitor your surroundings, acting like a second set of eyes while you're at the wheel. Check out these available features:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control allows you to set a desired speed and following distance on the road. If you get too close to another vehicle, your Escape will slow down or stop to prevent a collision.
  • BLIS with Cross-Traffic Alert watches the road with a built-in radar, signalling immediately if a vehicle sneaks into your blind spot.
  • Enhanced Active Park Assist does all of the hard work for you while you park, helping you steer into tight parking spots and ease into parallel parking situations flawlessly.
  • Lane-Keeping Assist prevents accidental lane drift by vibrating the steering wheel if you get too close to the lane markers.
