A top-to-bottom redesign amalgamated into an Escape model unlike any other. From the elegant lines and curves running from its grille, to its elevated and athletic stance, the 2020 Escape makes its presence felt on driveways and highways alike—while trim levels like the SEL and Titanium add 18” and 19” machined-face aluminum wheels, among other sleek details. An available Panoramic Vista Roof® lets the natural light pour in, warming the premium seating and dashboard materials, and filling the spacious interior that offers up to 1,852 litres of total cargo space.
The smart design of the 2020 Ford Escape encompasses more than just its good looks; its clever convenience features and safety technology offer a departure from so-called utility so many modern SUVs promise and fail to deliver on. 60/40 Split-Fold-Flat rear seat backs with sliding functionality make utilizing the cargo space in your Escape a cinch, while the available Hands-Free, Foot-Activated Liftgate provides unparalleled accessibility even when your hands are full. Add in Ford’s Co-Pilot360™ suite of available safety technologies for a ride that’s as safe as it is stylish.
The performance capabilities of the all-new 2020 Ford Escape add a bit of beast to this beautiful SUV, with two turbocharged EcoBoost® engines taking the storied nameplate to new heights—and fast. Standard in the Escape is a 1.5L, 4-cylinder EcoBoost® engine, producing a hearty 181 horsepower and 190 lb-ft of torque to propel the midsize SUV forward with sensible efficiency. Next up, an available 2.0L Twin-Scroll EcoBoost® offering provides 250 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque, which is enough muscle to give the Escape a max towing capacity of 3,498 lbs. Whichever engine you choose, you’ll be treated to the smooth-shifting of Ford’s 8-Speed SelectShift automatic transmission, as well as Auto Start-Stop technology standard for improved efficiency.
For the environmentally-conscious, the Ford Escape is now offered in both Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid trims, neither of which sacrifice power in their pursuit of a lower carbon footprint. A 4-cylinder, 2.5L Atkinson-cycle powertrain engine partners with an 88kW electric motor for on-demand torque and incredible efficiency over short drives, and the electronically-controlled continuously variable transmission (eCVT) smoothly handles power distribution whether you’re driving in or out the city limits. For those that will use their 2020 Escape to break from the beaten path, a selection of standard Selectable Drive Modes provide pre-calibrated settings for a variety of terrains, while the available All-Wheel Drive and All-Wheel Drive Disconnect systems present unprecedented control.
Always efficient power and off-road utility combine with stylish and smart design to make the 2020 Ford Escape the perfect SUV for Monday-to-Friday urban living and weekend adventures. Find your all-new, completely-redesigned Escape at Melfort’s home for all things Ford: Melody Motors.
