The brand-new 2020 Ford Escape

takes a substantial advance in the competitive compact

crossover

market with a brand-new platform, styling and powertrains. It’s now being developed on

Ford’s

new modular architecture, and is the very first car riding on it to come to the United States. Ford guarantees much better performance, space, convenience and handling with the brand-new

Escape

All of it gets covered in new sheetmetal that’s completely different from the Escape it’s replacing.


We haven’t driven any of the brand-new Escapes yet (there are four versions), however will upgrade this page with complete driving impressions when we do. Ford has actually offered all the juicy details about what to anticipate, so keep reading to get completely up to speed on the 2020 Escape.

What’s new for 2020?

The Escape went through a clean-sheet redesign for2020 Its purpose as a compact crossover has actually not changed, however Ford decided to shake things up from a styling and powertrain viewpoint. All the measurements are more favorable for utility and driving characteristics– it’s longer, lower and larger– but Ford still wished to keep the light off-roading durability undamaged.


An

Escape Hybrid

is once again readily available, but this time, it’s joined by a

plug-in hybrid

too. Ford is targeting about 30 miles of pure electrical range with the plug-in. The other 2 turbocharged gas-only engine alternatives carryover with updates for 2020.

What’s the Escape’s interior and in-car innovation like?

Ford revamped the Escape’s interior for this 2020 redesign, and it highly resembles the all-new 2019

Ford Focus

sold in other worldwide markets (it’s based on the very same platform as the Escape). Features from the 2020

Explorer

can also be found throughout the cabin like the 12.3- inch digital instrument cluster, twist-dial equipment selector and the very same drive-mode controller. Ford is utilizing a re-skinned version of Sync 3 for the automobile’s infotainment system.

How big is the new Escape?

The 2020 Escape is getting larger, measuring 180.5 inches in overall length. This slots it right in the middle of its competition in terms of all-out size, however the Escape has a couple of techniques to take full advantage of interior space.


Its moving second row of seats brings legroom up to a staggering 40.7 inches when moved all the way back. This lets the Escape claim best-in-class second-row legroom for the non-hybrid models, with just the

Honda CR-V

in spitting range.

Cargo

capability is a strong 37.5 cubic feet for the non-hybrid Escapes (344 cu-ft on

hybrid

models). With the 2nd row folded down, Ford states maximum capacity increases to 65.4 cu-ft. None of the cargo figures are class bests, but it puts the Escape among the leaders in this battle. Ford loses a bit here due to the more rounded rear end styling versus the blocky

CR-V

and

Forester

What’s the Escape’s efficiency and fuel economy?

Ford uses the 2020 Escape with 4 powertrain choices. The base engine is a 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder that makes 180 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque. Yes, just three cylinders, and for the very first time in a Ford engine, there’s cylinder deactivation, so it can really run as a two-cylinder. You can likewise update to a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder that increases max output to 250 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque on 93 octane fuel, supplying for a 0-60 mph time of 7.4 seconds.


Then there are the 2 hybrid powertrains that both utilize a 2.5-liter four-cylinder working on the more effective Atkinson cycle to supplement the electrical power. The regular 2020

Ford Escape Hybrid

produces 198 horse power and 153 pound-feet of torque, while the Escape Plug-In raises that to 209 horse power and the exact same amount of torque. Ford claims the Escape Plug-In will go about 30 miles on a complete charge, however EPA-estimated variety is not offered yet. Neither are any
