Ford pulled back the curtain on its all-new 2020 Ford Escape in April, showing off a sleeker crossover that promises to be more functional and fun to drive than ever.
One of the big bits of news with the next-generation Escape is its powertrain lineup, which will include not one but two hybrid options. The Escape Hybrid is touted as offering a best-in-class EPA-estimated 550-plus-mile combined range,while the Escape Plug-In Hybrid is expected to return a best-in-class EPA-estimated 30 miles of pure-electric range.* The new 2.0-liter EcoBoost® offered with the Escape Titanium will deliver 250 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque, making it 10 percent faster from 0-60 mph than the outgoing 2.0-liter and enabling it to tow up to 3,500 pounds when properly configured.**
For as great as the new Escape looks on the outside, it’ll be every bit as appealing on the inside thanks to best-in-class second-row legroom and class-exclusive technologies like Active Park Assist 2.0 and Evasive Steering Assist. The 2020 Ford Escape also offers standard Ford Co-Pilot36o™ safety technology, FordPass Connect™ 4G LTE Wi-Fi capabilities, and an available 12.3-inch fully digital instrument cluster.
The all-new 2020 Ford Escape will be available at Olathe Ford beginning this fall with the S, SE, SE Sport, SEL, and Titanium trims. The Escape Plug-In Hybrid will be arriving in spring 2020.
