Whether you spend your time driving kids from place to place, commuting to and from work, or going on adventures, the 2020 Ford Escape is sure to please anybody.
Whatever the road conditions, the Escape has your back! Simply choose the mode that best suits your current situation, then allow the vehicle to automatically adjust the stability and traction control to optimize your drive.
If your day includes the normal running around, then the Normal Mode will probably be your go-to option. Choose Eco Mode if you are specifically looking to maximize your driving range and fuel efficiency. When you’re in the mood for a more exciting driving experience, then switch over to Sport Mode to increase your throttle response and allow for faster shifting.
When you are ready to take a little adventure, there are two driving modes created for exactly that. Change over to Slippery Mode when driving on ice, water, or gravel. Or, if you’re really in for some off road exploration and decide to conquer some deeper snow or sand, then the Deep Snow/Sand Mode will be the one to choose.
Engine Options and Mileage
With four available engine options, the 2020 Ford Escape is sure to suit your needs.
The 1.5L EcoBoost® Engine with Auto Start-Stop Technology has an eight-speed automatic transmission that can help lower fuel consumption and vehicle emissions. In the Front Wheel Drive version you get an awesome 27mpg City / 33mpg Highway, and in the All Wheel Drive version you still get 26mpg City / 31mpg Highway - both of which are pretty impressive numbers for an suv.
The 2.0L EcoBoost® Engine with Auto Start-Stop Technology has a bit more power and comes with the SelectShift transmission enabling each driver to choose between the ease of an automatic or the sporty feel of a manual. Equipped with All Wheel Drive, this engine option gets a respectable 23mpg City / 31mpg Highway.
After a long break, Ford has brought two Hybrid options back to the table for the Ford Escape.
The Plug-In 2.5L iVCT Atkinson-Cycle I-4 Engine which comes in a Front Wheel Drive version, gets an impressive 44mpg City / 37mpg Highway.
If you are looking for an All Wheel Drive Vehicle, the Hybrid 2.5L iVCT Atkinson-Cycle I-4 Engine is the option for you. The Front Wheel Drive version of this engine shares the same mpg that the plug in hybrid engine does. However, if you opt to go with the All Wheel Drive version of this Hybrid engine, you will be impressed to know the fuel efficiency almost stays the same at 43mpg City / 37mpg Highway.
The fully redesigned 2020 Ford Escape has some incredible features and options available to create the ultimate enjoyable driving experience. The available Panoramic Vista Roof®, 12.3” customizable dash display, B&O 10 speaker Sound System, Hands-Free Foot-Activated Liftgate, and Head-Up Display on the windshield are sure to bring the comfort back to your driving experience. Comfortable seating for five with improved legroom and headroom, as well as the different available climate control systems, you are certain to find a new excitement for driving.
