interior dashboard of the 2024 Ford Escape

The interior of a car is a complex environment that can sometimes be overshadowed by other important facts about the vehicle, such as the engine options, exterior styling, and safety features. But since a driver spends most of their time behind the wheel, it’s important that the car appeals to all their senses and provides everything needed for a comfortable, hassle-free ride. The 2024 Ford Escape checks all those boxes, and in this article, we’ll discuss everything drivers need to know about the interior of this compact crossover SUV.

Interior Features

The 2024 Ford Escape is a family-friendly compact SUV designed for urban living. It offers a spacious interior for up to five people, plenty of room for groceries and heavy loads, comfortable seats, and several entertainment features to keep all passengers engaged throughout the trip. The overall interior design is intuitive, with modern finishes displayed all around. This new model offers a wide range of customizable options, such as a Panoramic Vista Roof, to further enhance the onboard experience for road trips around Bakersfield and beyond.

Regarding entertainment, the SUV offers an advanced system with all the software and touch screens necessary to stay connected and entertained. There are six trim levels, and the material of the interior elements varies across them. Base models feature hard plastic on the dashboard, cloth upholstery, and soft plastic buttons. The upper trim levels are more upscale, with leather upholstery and premium materials for the dashboard and buttons.

Each trim has a slightly different interior, and materials and colors vary from model to model. However, the overall opinion of the 2024 Ford Escape interior is positive, as the SUV meets expectations in terms of comfort, style, technology, and design.

Dimensions and Space

It’s no coincidence that the Ford Escape is a popular choice for families. This compact SUV can seat up to five people in its two rows and still offer plenty of room for additional items, such as groceries and vacation baggage. Its total passenger and cargo space is 104 and 65.4 cubic feet, respectively.

The headroom, legroom, and shoulder room dimensions for the first row are 40, 42.4, and 40 inches, respectively. As for the second row, the headroom space is 39.3 inches, while the legroom and shoulder room offer 40.7 and 39.3 inches, respectively.

It’s worth noting that this model has two different types of seats: front bucket seats and a rear bench seat. But don’t worry, both rows are equally comfortable and accommodating.

Infotainment and Connectivity

Since this is a very crowd-friendly vehicle, customers can expect cutting-edge technology and plenty of entertainment features to keep passengers connected throughout the trip. The SUV runs on SYNC 4, an advanced and intuitive infotainment system that provides access to wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a Wi-Fi hotspot, a six- or 10-speaker audio system, navigation, and Bluetooth.

Depending on the chosen trim level, customers will get an 8-inch digital gauge cluster with an 8-inch touch screen, or a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster with a 13.2-inch touch screen. Both touch screens offer crisp graphics, easy usability, and excellent response times.

The new Ford Escape comes with two USB ports, remote keyless entry, and some old-school buttons and knobs on the dash. Note that the upper trims don’t have these buttons, so those who rely on the traditional dashboard design might want to consider this.

Customers can also add more infotainment features. Some of these include push-button start, wireless device charging, dual-zone climate control, satellite radio, a universal garage door opener, two additional USB ports, and interior LED ambient lighting.

To make things even better for users, Ford has announced that the 2024 Escape will automatically update itself. In other words, drivers who aren’t tech-savvy won’t have to lift a finger to have an updated system.

Comfort and Ergonomics

As previously mentioned, the interior of the 2024 Ford Escape is comfortable and offers enough space for five people. But how comfortable is it? For starters, the driver and front passenger get to enjoy bucket seats, which are made to conform to the person’s shape, hugging their figure for extra comfort. The driver’s seat has eight power settings, while the passenger seat is manually adjustable. Higher trim levels offer a six-way power passenger seat, a 10-way power driver’s seat, heated front seats, and a heated steering wheel.

For the second row, there’s a well-padded bench seat that slides forward and backward for extra legroom. Families with young children will be happy to know that the new Ford Escape has two LATCH connectors on the outboard seats and a tether anchor on the center seat. Overall, both rows of seats are suitable for all ages and sizes. So frequent travelers can rest assured that everyone on board will have a comfortable ride.

Safety Features

The 2024 Ford Escape comes with a wide range of safety features and an advanced security system to keep passengers safe every mile of the way. This new SUV features Ford Co-Pilot360 — the brand’s latest suite of safety and security features. Whether driving around Bakersfield or heading to the next town, these features will help drivers get there safely.

Ford’s Blind Spot Information System, or BLIS, helps drivers stay in their lane, maintain the recommended speed, and apply the brakes if the situation warrants it. If parking in a tricky spot, a 360-degree camera with split view and Park Assist 2.0 will help the driver navigate tight spaces like a pro. Other available safety features include:
