Expected Performance in the 2020 Ford Escape

Bringing together speed and efficiency, fun and practicality, the 2020 Ford Escape offers a unique line up of engines that will give you the chance to customize your performance.

While the plug-in hybrid may not be available until Spring 2020, the entire line up of motors will look something like this:

  • 2.5L Hybrid or Plug-In Hybrid iVCT engine
  • 2.0L EcoBoost® engine
  • 1.5L EcoBoost® engine

Both the 2.0L and 1.5L engines are gas-powered, moving your SUV briskly from a standstill or while you attempt to merge into traffic, plus the 2.0L touts Auto Start-Stop technology for enhanced efficiency.

With Auto Start-Stop capabilities, your engine will shut down when you come to a complete stop, like at a stoplight for instance. As soon as you release the brake pedal, the engine comes back to life and you’re on your way!

Range of Safety & Driver-Assistance Technology

The Ford Escape, like each vehicle in the Ford family, strives to keep you and your passengers safe on the open road which is why it features a diverse array of protective technology.

The safety set up centers around Ford Co-Pilot360™ which is comprised of:

  • Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking
  • BLIS® with Cross-Traffic Alert
  • Available Active Park Assist 2.0
  • Adaptative Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go and Lane Centering
  • Auto High-Beam Headlamps
  • Rear View Camera

Infotainment & In-Cabin Technology

The advanced 2020 Ford Escape brings cutting-edge technology into the cabin, giving you an intuitive set up that does everything from entertainment to driver-assistance.

For instance, there’s the Head-Up Display which places an image on the bottom of your windshield so you can stay alert to key changes like your own speed limit and the speed limit of the road that you’re travelling on. It will also alert you to incoming calls or present easy-to-use navigational directions.

This isn’t all, however. Many other technological features come into play such as:

  • SYNC® 3 with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ Integration Systems
  • FordPass Connect™
  • WAZE Technology for Navigational Support
  • Ford + Alexa
