2020 Ford Escape

   
       

Overview

       

The Escape, Ford's second-best seller after the iconic F-150 pickup, has been fully redesigned for the 2020 model year, updating its exterior and interior to a sleeker and more modern look. Now in its fourth generation, the Escape enters this model year as a versatile crossover with a lot to prove against a lot of competitors. Utility vehicles - crossovers and SUVs - have replaced sedans as America's favorite vehicle style, and so Ford knows that the Escape has to stand out in this bustling segment. Well, mission accomplished: the Escape now boasts a sportier appearance, a new and improved base engine, a better suspension, and ample interior and cargo space. It also offers agile and precise handling that may lead you to believe you're driving a much smaller vehicle.

                  
   
   

   

Trim Levels

   

The '20 Escape is made in five trim levels: S, SE, SE Sport, SEL, and Titanium. The base powertrain is a 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine (180 horsepower) with an eight-speed automatic transmission (front-wheel drive). Upgrading to the SE Sport trim gets you the Escape's brand-new hybrid powertrain, consisting of a 2.5-liter iVCT Atkinson-cycle hybrid engine and continuously variable transmission (CVT). While the Titanium trim comes standard with the aforementioned hybrid engine, you can opt for a more powerful turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine (250 horsepower). This turbo engine is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.

   
   

   

Passenger Comfort and Amenities

   

Even the base model 2020 Escape comes with plenty of technology and connectivity features to keep all occupants connected and comfortable on the go. The S trim comes standard with a 4.2-inch touchscreen infotainment display, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. The SE adds a power-adjustable driver's seat, Ford's Sync3 infotainment system, push-to-start ignition, and upgraded wheels. The SE Sport gets a 12-inch digital gauge cluster display and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. If you opt for the SEL trim you'll get to enjoy sport seats, a heated steering wheel, a hands-free liftgate, and remote start. Finally, the top-notch Titanium trim receives leather upholstery, a nicer sound system, and some additional driver-assist features.

   
   

Safety Features

   

Although the 2020 Escape has not yet been tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the 2019 model received a 5 Star Overall Safety Rating, and so we expect the same from the new release. After all, the 2020 Escape is well equipped with active safety features, even on the base trim. The highest trim, Titanium, includes all of the active safety features found in Ford's Co-Pilot360 Technology. This suite of crash-mitigating technologies includes pre-collision assist with automatic emergency braking, active park assist, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go and lane centering, evasive steering assist, a lane-keeping system, auto high-beam headlamps, and a rear-view camera.
