Go ahead, take your seat inside the Ford Escape. With an inviting interior design, you can look forward to many adventures ahead. With a modern rotary gear shift that helps save space, the Ford Escape has a functional and fun design language.

You can also enjoy features like an available panoramic Vista Roof®. Open up and feel the breeze on your fingertips. The Vista Roof® is powered by a large forward panel that tilts up or open and provides a fixed rear skylight.

No matter where you sit, you can enjoy beautiful natural light inside the Ford Escape. In addition to its fixtures, the interior of the Ford Escape provides style and flair. If you opt for the SEL Stealth AWD package, you can enjoy suede inserts and front and rear floor mats.

Overall, the interior design of the Ford Escape is impressive. Now that we have covered the style of the Ford Escape, let's explore the interior seating.

Ford Escape Interior Seating

The Escape comes with seating for five people in two rows of seats. Cloth upholstery is standard, but you can opt for synthetic or genuine leather upholstery. Power-adjustable and heated seats are also available, along with a heated steering wheel.

Several features are available to enhance interior comfort and convenience, such as a panoramic moonroof, remote start, push-button start, and dual-zone automatic climate control. For child safety seats, the Escape includes two complete sets of LATCH connectors for the rear seats and a tether anchor in the center, which can use the connectors on either side.

When you're not using the child safety seats, you can tuck the tethers away, but they're easy to locate and install. With these features, you can have peace of mind that all your passengers will stay safe on the road.

Additionally, both rows of the Ford Escape offer ample headroom and legroom for passengers to stretch out and relax on a long road trip, especially with the rear seat's sliding capability.

Let's dive into the details of the Ford Escape interior dimensions.

The SYNC® 3 system also adds Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® smartphone integrations, features that connects to your phone for on-the-go music and entertainment. If your smartphone needs a charge, no worries. The available wireless charging pad located in the center console can get you to a full battery without a cable.

Other available features include a premium 10-speaker B&O Sound System by Bang & Olufsen, navigation, and satellite radio. Numerous advanced safety features are standard for the Escape, such as a Rear View Camera and Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB), a feature that alerts you to potential frontal crashes.
