2020 Ford Escape Brings Style, Substance to Small SUVs

View Full Press Kit

With best-ever performance, flexibility and smart new technology, the all-new Ford Escape sets a new standard in the small SUV segment it helped create.

Escape, which debuted the world’s first hybrid SUV in 2005, brings back two hybrid choices for 2020 – a full hybrid and a plug-in variant – and introduces technologies that include selectable drive modes, available driver-assist features and on-board connectivity.

With a sloped roofline, optimized liftgate spoiler, and efficient underbody, the all-new Escape is the most aerodynamic to date. Meanwhile, it sheds more than 200 pounds from the current model, due in part to the extensive use of high-strength, lightweight steel.

Every model in the lineup, whether powered by one of two EcoBoost® engines or the all-new hybrid powertrains, targets an EPA-estimated range of at least 400 miles per tank. The full hybrid with front-wheel drive targets a best-in-class EPA-estimated range of more than 550 miles.*

New for 2020, sliding second-row seats in EcoBoost engine-powered models allow rear-seat passengers to enjoy best-in-class maximum second-row legroom with the seats in the full rearward position. With the second-row seats in the full forward position, the rear cargo area extends roughly six inches to offer 37.5 cubic feet of cargo space in non-hybrid models, enough to accommodate four sets of golf clubs or a full-size 36-inch dog crate.

Escape comes standard with Ford Co-Pilot360™, and makes available Ford Co-Pilot360 Assist™ features such as Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go and Lane-Centering, Evasive Steering Assist, and Voice-Activated Navigation with SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link™. Also available is the class-exclusive Active Park Assist 2.0.

FordPass Connect™ is a standard feature that provides 4G LTE Wi-Fi for up to 10 mobile devices with compatible wireless subscription service. An available 8-inch touch screen shares information with the available 12.3-inch all-digital instrument cluster.

Available SYNC® 3 is compatible with available features such as Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™, Ford+Alexa and Waze navigation. For music lovers, Escape offers an available 575-watt 10-speaker B&O Sound System by Bang & Olufsen.

*Actual range will vary. Model designations are based on powertrain, drivetrain, and trim level combinations. Final EPA-estimated ratings available later in the 2019 calendar year.

**Driver-assist features are supplemental and do not replace the driver’s attention, judgment and need to control the vehicle.
