A True Product of Planet Earth

So you feel great about recycling your water bottles at home, eh? Well, the latest Ford Escape takes recycling to a whole new level, making it perhaps the most eco-friendly vehicle on the streets today. 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.

But the Escape’s green nature is not limited to the interior. It even rocks an aerodynamic design and boasts Active Grille Shutters that reduce drag and therefore increase fuel efficiency.

Efficient Power

The 2016 Ford Escape 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 Wichita Ford dealers 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.


Sure, it’s amazing gas mileage saves you significant money for years and years after the sale. But the 2016 Escape comes with incredible upfront savings as well. In fact, it starts at a very affordable $23,600 for a base model. And don’t worry, because 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 start doing something good for your family and Mother Earth, visit Rusty Eck Ford today and test drive a 2016 Ford Escape.
