A Comprehensive Breakdown of The 2020 Ford Escape

At Apple Ford Shakopee, we regularly get asked about the new Ford Escape. People want to know about what this vehicle is truly capable of. The 2020 Escape is a compact SUV from Ford. It is newly streamlined in its design and looks like a more modern and innovative vehicle. In this write-up, we'll be going in-depth about the vehicle's performance, safety, general features, its available trims, and so on. We want to provide you with a good understanding of what this vehicle can do for you, so let's get started.


When examining the new Ford Escape, the first thing we looked at was its capability specs and features. The Escape definitely delivers with engine choices, which currently sit at four. They are as follows:

1.5 liter EcoBoost Engine (feat Auto Start-Stop Tech)

Each of these engine options offers something a little different for potential Escape owners. With the standard 1.5-liter EcoBoost engine, you're getting a capable powerhouse that can deliver plenty of horsepower and options. The engine includes Auto Start-Stop tech, which automatically switches the engine off when the vehicle stops in traffic. Upon your foot pressing on the accelerator or brake, the engine will start back up again without missing a beat. Paired with the eight-speed automatic transmission, this is an excellent standard engine for the Ford Escape compact SUV.

2.0-liter EcoBoost Engine (feat Auto Start-Stop Tech)

The 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine includes the same Auto Start-Stop tech that is offered by the standard option, while also including SelectShift. This additional feature allows you to switch into manual mode if you want to have a little more fun behind the wheel on Eden Prairie streets. This engine also pairs with a towing package from Ford that can give the your new Ford Escape a towing capacity of 3,500 pounds.

Hybrid 2.5-liter iVCT I-4 Engine

The Hybrid 2.5-liter engine kicks things up a notch in terms of capability. It's an Atkinson-cycle model and turns up the sustainability with its inclusion of an electric motor and continuously variable transmission, which is also electronically-controlled. It packs a lithium-ion battery with liquid cooling underneath the second row of seating outside the vehicle - this ensures it won't take up needless cargo space.

Plug-in 2.5-liter iVCT I-4 Engine

This fully-electric engine option is the final choice for the new Ford Escape. You can charge it in 3.5 hours with a 240V charging cord, while a 110V cord will take 10-11 hours to fully charge. The battery for this engine is also stored beneath the vehicle for optimum cargo space. Obviously, for anyone looking for the more fuel-efficient engine option in the Prior Lake region, the 2.5-liter iVCT is the way to go in the new Ford Escape.


The handling of the new Ford Escape is very good. When behind the wheel for the first time, this vehicle is very easy to get acquainted with. Its available all-wheel drive with disconnect allows for maximum grip on terrain of any kind around Savage, and will then automatically turn off the rear wheels when all-wheel drive is no longer needed.

The Escape is also equipped with selectable Drive Modes, which allow you to customize how your vehicle is handling based on whatever surface you're driving on. Whether snow, slush, rain, or sand, these Drive Modes make any environment you encounter in Chanhassen easier to tackle.


With any vehicle, it's impossible to judge the true driving experience without having a comprehensive understanding of its interior. The technology, design, amenities, and dimensions all play a big role in not only the driver experience but the passenger experience as well.

The new Ford Escape's interior design is roomy and expansive and feels inviting. With minimal usage of hard plastics, the dash and seating all work well together, with smooth curving lines defining the space and carving out every seat into an individual area. The seats are comfortable and provide plenty of back support as well.

The Escape's interior technology is quite varied, with a number of available options like the SYNC 3 infotainment system, which provides you with features like voice command, climate control, a responsive touchscreen, music searching capabilities, and Apple Carplay/Android Auto for device connectivity. While not standard on any trims, this technology is still comprehensive. The FordPass Connect allows you to perform actions like locking/unlocking your Escape via your smartphone. It is available only for automatic transmissions.


The new Ford Escape was designed with safety in mind. The Heads-Display makes it easy to access various safety technologies like Adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assist. These features don't just make your drives simpler - they can also keep you safe if you zone out on the road. Ford's Co-Pilot 360 tech is comprised of numerous safety technologies that work together to keep you safe. It includes a rearview camera, automatic emergency braking, cross-traffic alert, and pre-collision assist. These technologies definitely work well to help keep drivers aware and focused on what's going on.
