Ford Escape: Drive Mode Control / Drive Modes

Deep Snow/Sand (If Equipped)

Ford Escape. Drive Modes Use this mode to aid you in getting your vehicle unstuck from deep snow or sand.

Note: The intent of your all-wheel drive vehicle is not for off-road use. The all-wheel drive feature allows for driving on relatively level surfaces, obstruction free and similar to normal on-road driving conditions.

Operating your vehicle in other conditions could lead to excessive stress that could result in damage not covered by the warranty.

Note: This mode is not intended for driving on snowy roads. For snowy roads use slippery mode.

Note: Using deep snow/sand mode on dry, hard surfaces could produce some vibration, driveline bind up, and potential excessive tire wear. This mode is for slippery and loose surfaces.

Eco

Ford Escape. Drive Modes For efficient driving. This mode helps deliver maximum fuel efficiency and helps to increase driving range.

Normal

Ford Escape. Drive Modes For everyday driving. This mode is a perfect balance of excitement, comfort and convenience. This is the default mode after each ignition cycle.

Slippery

Ford Escape. Drive Modes For less than ideal road conditions, such as snow or ice covered roads. Use this mode for crossing terrain with a firm surface covered with loose, wet or slippery material. Slippery mode lowers throttle response and, if provided with an automatic transmission, optimizes shifting for slippery surfaces.

Note: Using slippery mode on dry, hard surfaces could produce some vibration, driveline bind up, and potential excessive tire wear. This mode is for slippery surfaces.

Sport

Ford Escape. Drive Modes For sporty driving with improved performance handling, and response. This mode increases throttle response and provides a sportier steering feel. If equipped with automatic transmission, the powertrain system provides improved gear holding, helping your vehicle accelerate faster.
