The Ford Explorer isn't the only crossover to be getting a Sport Appearance Package as the Blue Oval has also introduced a new Sport Appearance Package for the 2017 Escape. Set to go on sale this spring, the package will be available on Escape SE and Titanium variants. It includes a number of exterior styling tweaks including black window trim, a gloss black grille, and 19-inch aluminum wheels with an ebony black finish.

Ford has announced the 2017 Escape will be offered with a new Sport Appearance Package.

Set to go on sale this spring, the model follows in the footsteps of the recently introduced Ford Explorer variant and includes a number of exterior and interior styling tweaks.

The package will be available on SE and Titanium variants and exterior changes include black window trim, a gloss black grille, and 19-inch aluminum wheels with an ebony black finish.

Interior changes are fairly limited but Ford confirmed the package will include partial leather sport seats and white contrast stitching.  The model also appears to have revised trim but detailed specifications will be announced closer to launch.  

As we have previously reported, the 2017 Ford Escape will go on sale later this year and be offered with an assortment of new and upgraded engines.  Choices include a new 1.5-liter EcoBoost with 180 horsepower and 185 pound-feet of torque as well as an upgraded 2.0-liter EcoBoost that develops 245 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque.  The entry-level 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine carries over and continues to produce 168 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque.
