Performance

Despite its radical reimagining of what constitutes an SUV, the 2020 Ford Escape never forgets the key tenets of the segment—offering a performance equal parts sporty and utilitarian. It all starts with a choice between two powerful engines, starting with the 1.5-litre turbocharged EcoBoost® 4-cylinder engine, capable of producing 181 horsepower along with 190 lb.-ft of torque. Next up, the available 2.0L Twin-Scroll EcoBoost® I-4 roars to life thanks to its 250 horsepower and 280 lb.-ft of torque, and provides the 2020 Escape a maximum towing capacity of up to 3,498 lbs. Ford’s smooth Auto Start-Stop technology adds further efficiency to these turbocharged gas engines, while an 8-speed SelectShift® automatic transmission cycles through the optimized gear ratios effortlessly. Not only that, but a choice of Selectable Drive Modes—from Normal mode to Eco, Slipper, Sport, or Deep Snow/Sand—allow you the ability to conquer any terrain at the press of a button.

Now, this type of functionality seems pretty standard when Ford’s involved; however, the addition of a Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid drivetrain is what truly drives the 2020 Ford Escape into revolutionary territory. A choice of Hybrid or Plug-in Hybrid 2.5L iVCT I-4, Atknison-cycle powertrain engines combine with an 88 kW electric motor and eCVT (Electronically-controlled Continuously Variable Transmission) to provide electrifying performance; up to 221 horsepower, 155 lb.-ft of torque, and unparalleled fuel efficiency that’ll have you taking more trips, yet stopping for gas less. The available All-Wheel Drive Disconnect system brings even more economical performance to the 2020 Escape, as it intelligently switches between FWD and AWD to provide optimal traction and fuel consumption, while also lowering drag and wear on the drivetrain.

Design

While providing a renewed sense of vigour in the performance department, the completely redesigned interior and exterior of the 2020 Ford Escape provide a similar jolt to this proud nameplate. The exterior of the Escape has done a near 180, adding flowing lines where there were once sharp edges and infusing the compact SUV with a much more athletic mentality. At first glance, a distinct new grille captures your attention while the wraparound headlights allow your gaze to find its way across this sporty Ford’s low beltline, exaggerating the energetic stance of the new Escape. A sleek rear spoiler adds to the performance-inspired appearance of the 2020 Escape, matched by its dual chrome exhaust tips, while an available Hands-Free Foot-Activated power liftgate adds a bit of added utility to this compact SUV’s stunning design. 

An Impressive Interior 

Inside the 2020 Escape, soft-touch surfaces and a clever layout are punctuated by eye-catching and luxurious trim accents, while an available Panoramic Vista Roof® shines an even brighter light on the gorgeous interior of this Ford. But don’t mistake the elevated interior of the Escape for window dressing; it still offers the type of utility demanded of vehicles in its segment, starting with the available all-weather floor liners—and continuing with the sliding 60/40 Split-Fold-Flat Rear Seat Backs, allowing you to pivot from space for five passengers to having a cargo volume of over 1,800 litres! With such smart design, the 2020 Ford Escape has the ability to both easily blend in with the city’s finest during the week, and stand out on weekend adventures.

Safety & Technology

While the 2020 Ford Escape offers all the best in the way of performance and design, it’s no slouch in the safety department either—thanks to the intelligent driver assistance features found in the Ford Co-Pilot360™ safety system. Pilot your Escape with confidence thanks to the features like BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert, Lane-Keeping System, Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, and more, all found standard across the 2020 Escape model lineup. While these features provide an extra set of eyes on the road, you won’t need to take yours off it thanks to the available Heads-Up Display, which superimposes critical information from your instrument panel—as well as other driver-assistance features—across your windshield. Not to mention the voice-activated, hands-free access you’ll have over your phone’s music, messaging, and more, thanks to Ford’s SYNC® (or available SYNC® 3) infotainment system. It’s not just more capable and better looking, but the redesigned 2020 Ford Escape is smarter, too.

Escape Model Changes

A complete redesign has made the 2020 Ford Escape the most complete version of this legendary nameplate to date; however, all prior versions of the Escape share the same everyday practicality and adventure-ready DNA that have made the Escape a key member of the Ford lineup for twenty years.
