Taking actions that are good for Mother Earth make us all feel good. Rusty Eck Ford has a great green option for shoppers in the market for a versatile vehicle that is good for your family, your budget and the environment. The 2016 Ford Escape from your local Wichita Ford dealer is equal parts efficient and fun.

As they designed the Ford Escape, engineers were clearly thinking of what is best for the planet. Features include seat cushions and head restraints made of soybeans, as well as carpet produced from postindustrial/post-consumer fibers and recycled plastic bottles. The Escape’s interior is even sound-proofed using cotton recovered from clothing. So, car dealerships in Wichita, KS, who carry this compact SUV can truly claim to offering a truly eco-friendly vehicle.

Even the styling of the new Ford Escape takes savings into consideration. The latest Ford Escape rocks an aerodynamic design and boasts Active Grille Shutters that reduce drag and therefore increase fuel efficiency.

And, there is more than one option when it comes to how powerful and/or efficient you’d want your Escape. It comes with two engine options from the efficiency-minded EcoBoost line: the 1.6-liter engine with an ample 178 horsepower or the 2.0-liter that offers a bit more punch. The 1.6-liter engine is great for budget-minded drivers who will love the money-saving 32 miles per gallon on the highway. The 2.0-liter engine boosts the horsepower to 240 hp, yet still delivers a cool 30 mpg on the highway for fewer stops at the fuel pump.

The EcoBoost technology produces a cooler, denser fuel-injection charge that generates more power per every drop of fuel. A Ford Escape from Rusty Eck Ford in Wichita features twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT) maximizes performance. Two other technologies — turbocharging and direct injection — deliver the performance of a larger engine while still offering excellent efficiency.

Think the EcoBoost engines are the only way the Escape from Wichita Ford saves money? No way, because a 2016 Ford Escape starts at a very affordable $23,100 for a base model. Those base models are loaded with standard equipment like SYNC with voice activated commands, power windows and doors, a rearview backup camera and improved stability and traction control.

So if you’re looking to go green with your next vehicle, visit your Wichita Ford dealer in Kansas today. Come test drive what is perhaps the most eco-friendly vehicle on the market today.
