The first vehicle to feature Ford’s windshield wiper de-icer system is the 2017 Escape. A standard feature on the 2017 Ford Escape, this windshield wiper de-icer is designed to stop ice and snow from clumping on the wipers.
It really doesn’t take much for snow to quickly melt and freeze once again on your windshield wipers. While we’ve all made it work for years without a windshield wiper de-icer system, its existence as a standard feature on the 2017 Escape (and other Ford models to come) can be an added peace of mind when purchasing this popular crossover vehicle.
What does Ford’s Cold Weather Package include?

The Ford Cold Weather Package is certainly more valuable to folks in Canada, compared to the states. We can expect to the availability of the Ford Cold Weather Package to grow in the future, helping all of us deal with the winter months!
The windshield wiper de-icer uses heating elements, located in the glass beneath the wipers to heat them, melting ice and snow clumps. The windshield wiper de-icer is designed to melt snow and ice in under 10 minutes, even at temperatures as low as minus 27 degrees Celsius!
The Ford Cold Weather Package is just one of the many features that sets the 2017 Ford Escape apart from the crossover competition in Calgary AB. We’d encourage you to stop into Marlborough Ford to experience the 2017 Ford Escape for yourself and take a test drive!
