Did you ever wish there was a faster way to de-ice your windshield wipers? Up until now, there were no Ford SUV models with the technology.

Finally, the 2017 Ford Escape bumps your wiper blades up to first class by adding a windshield wiper de-icer to the Cold Weather Package.

The Escape Cold Weather Package will be standard feature on Titanium models, and optional at the SE level. It can melt snow and ice from your wiper blades in 10 minutes, even in negative 18 degrees Fahrenheit.

That's faster than you can get frostbite!

The Escape Cold Weather Package also includes:

  • All-weather floor mats
  • Heated side-mirrors
  • Heated seats
  • Supplemental powertrain conditioning heater

"The windshield wiper de-icer is a great solution to one of the more nagging problems of winter," said Jennifer Gauthier, Ford fixed glass engineer. "Escape drivers in the U.S. are going to wonder how they ever got along without it."

Visit Team Ford Lincoln and test drive the 2017 Escape when it joins our new Ford inventory in Steubenville this spring.
