Find your “Smiths near me“ to check out all of the amazing features of the Ford Escape.
Redesigned For You
Redesigned in 2020, the Ford Escape is one of the leading compact SUVs because it totally beats out the competition. Ford pulled out the stops to create a pleasantly rounded fourth-generation Escape that brings enough smart features and model configurations to satisfy a variety of buyers.
The new Escape is now longer, wider, and lower than the previous model, and it even has a lower beltline, which allows for larger windows and excellent outward visibility. Even better, the new model is notably lighter than before, largely thanks to the use of more high-strength steel in its structure, which helped lend a general easiness and sense of agility to the vehicle.
Ford Escape Trims: Something for Everyone
For whatever you’re looking for, you’re sure to find you match with one of the many options the Ford Escape offers. It has multiple trim levels and four powertrain options. Trims include the S, SE, hybrid-only SE Sport, SEL, and Titanium, while the powertrains include two gasoline engines, a hybrid, and a plug-in hybrid. Other compact SUVs don’t give you the extensive range that the Escape does.
Front-wheel drive is standard on all but the all-wheel-drive-only non-hybrid Titanium; all-wheel drive is a $1500 option on all other trim levels. The Escape’s base powertrain, a turbocharged 1.5-liter inline-three-cylinder, produces a quick and smooth 181 horsepower and 190 lb.-ft. of torque.
The entry-level Escape S trim features a 4.2-inch infotainment and gauge cluster displays for managing basic vehicle functions. Moving up to the SE trim, the infotainment display increases to 8.0 inches and gains touchscreen functionality, satellite radio, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. The Titanium trim gets built-in navigation and a 12.3-inch digital gauge display. A six-speaker audio system is standard, and a 10-speaker Bang & Olufsen premium setup is available. The technology and functionality available for the Ford Escape interior is unbeatable. You won’t find these amazing features with competitors.
Spacious and Comfort
With more space and comfort than all of its competitors, the Ford Escape offers a cargo volume of 33.5 feet, which expands to 37.5 feet when the second row is slid forward. When the second row is folded down, you’ll get even more room with 65.4 cubic feet of space.
The Escape has an advantage in front-row legroom, offering 42.4 inches, which is several more inches than its closest competitor in the Honda CR-V. Your passengers will be comfortable, too, with 40.7 inches of legroom in the second-row.
