Significant Improvements on the 2020 Ford Escape!
2020 Ford Escape Variants
There are four trims available of 2020 Ford Escape – The S, SE, SEL, and Titanium. Ford has also recently launched a hybrid version of the 2020 Escape too.
Choices of Engine
Ford has tried to incorporate robust engines in every trim of the Escape to give customers a better driving experience. In the S, SE, and SEL trim, Ford included a 1.5-liter EcoBoost 3-cylinder in combination with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Even the basic trims deliver a relatively high horsepower of 180 and a torque of 190 pound-feet.
The Titanium has been equipped with a 2.0-liter EcoBoost 4-cylinder with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The powerful engine provides a horsepower of 250 and a torque of 290 pound-feet. This variant of the engine can also be availed in the SEL trim with an upgrade.
However, the most powerful engine of the lot hides in the Escape’s hybrid version. It runs on the power-packed 2.5-liter hybrid 4-cylinder in unison with an electronic continuously variable transmission. This model offers better driveability and handling, albeit a lower horsepower of 200.
The 2020 Ford Escape also offers an exceptionally smooth ride, with no engine noise entering the interiors.
The Escape has seen quite an improvement in terms of the cargo space and interiors provided. The regular model of the 2020 Ford Escape has a pretty large cargo area of 37.5 cubic feet, and this reduces to 34.4 cubic feet in the hybrid model.
The 1.5-liter EcoBoost 3-cylinder extends one of the best fuel economy ratings in the compact SUV segment. This model achieves an EPA rating of 27 miles per gallon in the city and 33 mpg on the highway, with a combined mpg of 30. Such frugality in fuel economy, combined with impressive horsepower, would make any driver happy.
