Ford Escape: Drive Mode Control / What Is Drive Mode Control

The system delivers a driving experience through a suite of sophisticated electronic vehicle systems. These systems optimize steering, handling and powertrain response. This provides a single location to control multiple systems performance settings.

Changing the drive mode changes the functionality of the following systems:

  • Electric power-assisted steering system adjusts steering effort and feel based on the mode you select.
  • Electronic stability control and traction control maintain your vehicle control in adverse conditions or high performance driving.
  • Electronic throttle control enhances the powertrain response to your driving inputs.
  • Transmission controls become optimized with shift schedules tuned to each mode.
  • Four-wheel drive settings are optimized and tuned to each mode.
  • Electric vehicle mode selections may be limited.

The system tailors your vehicle configuration for each mode you select.

Note: Not all settings may be available.

Note: The system has diagnostic checks that continuously monitor the system for proper operation. If a mode is unavailable due to a system fault or change in gear shifter position, the mode defaults to Normal.
