Coscharis Motors, exclusive distributor of Ford vehicles in Nigeria, returned to the Lagos International Motor Show for the unveiling of the all-new Ford Escape SUV. Visitors to the stand also had the opportunity to view the best-selling Ford Ranger pick-up truck, and the stylish Ford Edge and Ford Explorer SUVs. Ford is the second largest SUV brand in the world, and every model is backed by the global automaker’s SUV expertise, and robust 50-year heritage in the segment. 
“We are thrilled with the new Escape joining our line-up,” said Abiona Babarinde, GM of Marketing and Communications at Coscharis Motors. “More importantly, our customers will be thrilled too. With stunning new design inside and out, smart technologies, fuel-efficient yet powerful engines, and five-star safety, it’s a vehicle that can be so many different things for our customers.”
The new Escape features Ford’s latest design language for a bold, smart look that is shared with the brand’s other SUVs. Its large, upper trapezoidal grille, and a smaller lower grille, are flanked by sleek new headlamps, incorporating optional daytime running lights, complemented by functional, stylish fog lamps.
“Ford designers went to great lengths to ensure the vehicle and its many features – large and small – are smart, and provide welcome benefits to daily routines,” said Babarinde. “The hands-free Power Tailgate, for example, is something customers have really grown to appreciate, and it is available as an option across the Escape range. No matter what you might find filling your arms – from sports gear to shopping bags, or even a toddler or two – the Power Tailgate can save the day.”
Ford’s new SYNC®3* connectivity system is also available as an option – depending on the Escape model and in-car entertainment package selected. Drivers can operate the 8” touchscreen – the largest in this class – in the same way they use their smartphones. A new interface features larger, easier to operate buttons, and enables pinch and swipe gestures for the first time.
The latest Ford technologies and sophisticated body engineering help drivers see more clearly, and enhance safety on the road for both vehicle occupants and other road users. The Adaptive Front Lighting System – depending on the Escape model – monitors ambient light conditions, and automatically optimises visibility by adjusting the beam angle of the new optional Bi-Xenon headlights, depending on the vehicle’s speed, steering angle, and distance to an object in front. It features anti-glare capability, as well as country road, City Street, and manoeuvring beam shaping abilities.
