DETROIT – The North American International Auto Show is just a few months away. Automakers all across the global will debut new concepts and designs for their most popular vehicles. One company that is making headlines for its newly rebooted SUV is Ford for their 2017 Escape.

Ford Motor Company will introduce several new features to its crossover vehicle. The automaker says the exterior appear more rugged, joined by an upscale look.

Inside, the front console will be completely redesigned with touch screen navigation, a new steering wheel, and a slot specifically made for smartphones.

The 2017 Ford Escape will also feature two new four-cylinder Eco Boost engines; both will come with stop-and-start technology to help improve fuel efficiency. 

Last year, the two-row cross over sold over 300,000 units, and outsold the Toyota RAV4 and the Nissan Rogue.

Ford also says new changes will debut on their Ford Edge and Explorer SUVs.

The new designs can be seen at the North American International Auto Show from January 11-24, 2016 at Cobo Center in Downtown Detroit.
