2020 Ford Escape: Fully Redesigned Versatile Compact Crossover for the Roads of Holyoke, Chicopee, and Beyond

The Ford Escape has been one of the most popular compact crossovers in the industry since its inception in 2001. For 2020, the industry veteran returns for its fourth generation with a complete redesign, new engine options, more accessible features, and a suite of driver-assistance technologies on all trim levels.

Design

The Ford Escape sports an entirely new look for the 2020 model year. The boxy aesthetics of a traditional crossover have been replaced by a more streamlined profile, sleek lines, a unique front fascia. On the inside, Chicopee drivers are treated to an inviting cabin with high-quality materials, attractive accents, intuitively arranged controls, and several available comfort amenities, including leather power-adjustable seats, a panoramic sunroof, and dual-zone automatic climate control.

Performance

New for the 2020 model year, a 1.5-liter EcoBoost turbocharged three-cylinder engine produces 181 horsepower and 190 pound-feet of torque. This new engine features a cylinder deactivation system that can shut down one cylinder when it isn't needed to increase fuel economy. EPA-estimated fuel ratings reach 27 mpg city, 33 mpg highway, and 30 mpg combined.

SE Sport and Titanium trims feature a hybrid 2.5L iVCT Atkinson-Cycle four-cylinder (200 horsepower, 155 pound-feet of torque, 41 mpg combined).

For Westfield drivers seeking a little extra power, SEL and Titanium trims can add the available turbocharged 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine that boosts output to 250 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque.

Technology

Ford's advanced and easy-to-use SYNC 3 infotainment system is now standard on the SE trim level and above. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integrate essential smartphone apps with the eight-inch touchscreen, including maps, media, Spotify, WAZE, hands-free calls and texts, Amazon Alexa, and more.

With available FordPass Connect, you can use your smartphone to remotely lock the doors, start the engine, check fuel levels, get service alerts, and connect to the 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot.

Safety

The 2020 Ford Escape includes the Ford Co-Pilot360 suite of advanced safety features across all trims. Standard driver-assistance technologies include:

  • Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking
  • BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert
  • Lane Keeping Assist
  • Auto High-Beam Headlamps

Additional driver aids are available via the higher trim levels or available options packages, including Evasive Steering Assist, Active Park Assist 2.0, and Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go.
