2020 Ford Escape



2020 Ford Escape


The new 2020 Ford Escape was launched in the fall of 2019, and it bagged huge sales numbers. This redesigned compact SUV is fighting head-on with its competitors. The 2020 Ford Escape comes with a lot of smart features that we will be discussing in this blog. 


Exterior 


Adorned with the right amount of features, the Escape is made for the modern driver. The Escape has a clean shape featuring a low grille. The roof dives in lower but thankfully does not create a floating roofline. You will find horizontal tail lamps flanked on either side of the flat rear. 


Premium models come with liftgate power. There are some complex curves at the back quarters that give the car a more sporty appearance. The extended greenhouse gestures, a plunging nose, offer the model a more buffed up hatchback look. It has used high-strength steel, which makes the Escape lighter than before, allowing higher ease and agility. 


Interior 


Coming to the interior, the Ford Escape’s redesigned lineup offers a premium feel. There is adequate space for people as well as cargo. The dashboard has become more straightforward and shallower, freeing up more knee room. Additionally, center-console storage is placed deep ahead of the rotary shift control. 


The seats come in either cloth or leather upholstery, and higher-priced trims offer heating and power controls. There is legroom up to 38.8-inches in the rear, and the seats can be reclined for better support. The seats at the back are also well-supported across all the trims. 


The bottom of the seats tend to go deep inboard from the doors, but they have narrow and aligned bolsters. The seats are enclosed in cloth upholstery, making them better padded as opposed to the leather-trimmed versions


The lineup offers a cargo space of 37.5 cubic feet, and when the seats are reclined back, it loses four cubic feet of the storage space. When the seats are folded down, you can expect to get a storage space of 65.4 cubic feet. 


Performance 


The 2020 Ford Escape comes in various trim levels that include the S, SE, Hybrid-only SE Sport, SEL, and Titanium. Standard front-wheel is featured on all the models except for the Titanium, which offers all-wheel-drive as an option. 


The Escape lineup has a 1.5-liter turbocharged inline-cylinder that is capable of generating 181 horsepower and lb-ft torque of 190. Moreover, the Titanium trims feature a more powerful 2.0-liter inline-four engine in the all-wheel-drive models. This engine is capable of producing a horsepower of 250 along with 289 lb-ft torque. 


Safety 


The 2020 Ford Escape lineup comes with valuable safety features, including automatic high-beam headlights, automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitors, and active lane control. Additionally, the forward-collision warning system comes with cameras that are capable of mitigating the accident speed up to 75 mph. You can also expect adaptive cruise control along with more sensors lane-centering control. 


On the whole, the 2020 Ford Escape’s revamped lineup has a lot to offer in terms of features and specifications. Its new improvements, including high fuel efficiency, justify why the vehicle has been top-selling in the market.
