The Ford Escape has been the American manufacturer’s top-selling SUV for quite some time. For the new vehicle, the company decided to go for a complete redesign. Given the highly competitive nature of the market in this category, Ford did everything possible to provide attractive packages to consumers.
What to expect from the 2020 Ford Escape?
The American manufacturer is placing significant emphasis on safety by introducing the Ford Co-Pilot360™. It contains several technologies to assist the driver and keep you and your passengers safe. A Rear-View Camera, Pre-Collision Assist, Lane-Keeping System, Automatic Emergency Braking, and Auto High-Beam Headlamps are some pieces of fancy tech available. They will keep you in command of your vehicle all the way from your location to your destination.
Four Engine options
With the 2020 Ford Escape in Southern Pines, Abermarle, and Asheboro, you get a 1.5-liter EcoBoost engine with Auto Start-Stop Technology as the standard. To help manage all this power, it comes with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
You also go for the 2-liter EcoBoost, Hybrid 2.5-liter iVCT Atkinson-Cycle I-4 engine, and Plug-In 2.5-liter iVCT Atkinson-Cycle I-4 engine. For improving the fuel efficiency of the SUV, the All-Wheel Drive Disconnect will deactivate the rear driveline. The benefit of this move is that it reduces drag, bringing down the energy the SUV needs to move forward.
The 1.5-liter EcoBoost engine can tow up to 2,000 lbs, while the 2-liter EcoBoost variant boosts its capacity to 3,500 lbs. For the hybrid and plug-in variant, the towing capacity is 1,500 lbs.
The American manufacturer further improved the 2020 Ford Escape in terms of every aspect imaginable. With the new model, the SUV is lower, wider, and longer than the previous variant. The advantage of this upgrade is that it improves outward visibility while giving space for larger windows.
On top of that, the company made the SUV lighter by incorporating greater quantities of high-strength steel in the frame of the vehicle. As a result, there has been a significant improvement in its agility and driving capabilities.
