Trims and Engine Configurations


The '20 Escape comes in five trim levels: S, SE, SE Sport, SEL, and Titanium. Under the hoods of the S, SE, and SEL trims, you'll find a standard 1.5-liter EcoBoost three-cylinder engine (180 horsepower) and an eight-speed automatic transmission. Both the SE Sport and Titanium grades get their power from the all-new 198 hp 2.5-liter Atkinson cycle hybrid powertrain; these hybrid models get an electronic CVT. The last powertrain, which is a revamped turbocharged 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder churning 250 hp and 275 lb.-ft. of torque, is an option on the highest trim level, the Titanium.



Interior Comfort and Technology


The all-new 2020 Escape offers more space than ever before, allowing drivers and passengers alike to sink into a comfortable ride thanks to the sliding second-row seat that opens up a most generous 40.7 inches of legroom. Also, if you're taking a trip that requires a fair bit of equipment to be stored, you'll be happy to know that folding down the second-row seat yields 65.4 cubic feet of cargo space.


For entertainment and staying connected on those long trips, the base S comes with a 4.2-inch touchscreen interface that includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The SE adds a larger (8-inch) touchscreen, a power-adjustable driver's seat, push-button ignition, and Ford's SYNC 3 technology. The SE Sport brings a leather-wrapped steering wheel and a 12-inch digital gauge cluster to the mix, while the SEL provides a hands-free liftgate, remote start, sport styled seating, and a heated steering wheel. Last, the Titanium trim comes with leather interior trim and an upgraded audio system, as well as some advanced driving aids.


Safety Features


The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has not yet rated the newest Escape on its safety; however, the 2019 model received 5 stars overall - their highest distinction. The same result is likely this year, since all trim levels will be decked out with the latest in active safety technology, even on the base S. The range-topping Titanium, though, gets all the goods within Ford's Co-Pilot360 Technology, which includes driver aids such as pre-collision assist with automatic emergency braking, active park assist 2.0, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go, evasive steering assist, a lane-keeping system, automatic high beams, and a rear-view camera system.
