Engine & Powertrain Options: 2020 Ford Escape


The base engine available on the Escape S, SE, and SEL, is a 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder that's paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. It's good for 180 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque, and it's rated to tow up to 2,000 lbs. The Escape Titanium provides the option of upgrading to a more powerful 2.0-liter turbo-four that makes 250 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque.

Replacing the current 6-speed transmission on all EcoBoost engines in the current Escape is a smooth, responsive new 8-speed automatic transmission.

Two Hybrid Options

The all-new 2020 Ford Escape will also be available as a hybrid and a plug-in hybrid. The hybrid powertrain, which is standard on SE Sport and Titanium trims, starts with a 2.5-liter inline four and a CVT. With a 1.1 kilowatt-hour battery powering the electric motor, the hybrid Escape makes a system total of 198 hp. The PHEV version will be available on the SE, SEL, and Titanium trims. It uses the same 2.5-liter engine and CVT as the regular hybrid but adds a 14.4-kWh battery. The result is a bump to 209 hp and an all-electric range of about 30 miles.

All-new 2.5L iVCT Atkinson-cycle I-4 Hybrid and plug-in hybrid powertrains pair the gas engine with a new electronic continuously variable transmission (eVCT) and battery-driven electric motor (Hybrid standard on SE Sport and Titanium 400A, plug-in hybrid available on SE, SEL and Titanium).

More Room: 2020 Ford Escape

The new Ford Escape sits lower than before, but it's also wider and longer, which translates to more headroom, shoulder room, and hiproom. Also added more flexible seating options to give owners more space where they need it.

With an empty cargo area, the second-row seat can slide back, giving rear passengers as much as six inches of additional legroom. Slide the second row all the way forward, and the cargo expands to 37.5 cubic feet, 3.5 cubic feet more than before. .

Advanced Driver Assist Features: 2020 Ford Escape

Ford has made several advanced driver assist features standard on the Escape. That means even a base model will come with automatic high beams, blind-spot detection, lane keep assist, and automatic emergency braking.

You can also add optional adaptive cruise control with steering assist, a more advanced parking assist, and something called Evasive Steering Assist, which detects a vehicle that has braked quickly or stopped and helps the driver steer around it.
