The 2020 Ford Escape - Faster, Lighter, More Efficient

Even if you don't buy the 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid, the 2020 Escape is more efficient than ever. Its new 1.5l turbo is not only more powerful than the powertrain from the previous model, it also provides 4 extra mpg combined, resulting in 30 mpg combined for a roomy, comfortable 5-seat crossover. Special cylinder shutoff technology helps maximize efficiency, while providing torque and power when you need it.

The 2020 Ford Escape is also 200 lbs lighter than last year's model, improving efficiency and handling. Passengers in the second row can expect a comfortable ride, and Iowa drivers will love the sporty dynamics and handling of the Escape's well-tuned powertrain and suspension.

The 2020 Escape also comes packed with tech features, including an 8-inch touchscreen with Android Auto & Apple CarPlay, as well as Ford's suite of safety features called Co-Pilot360 as standard. These standard safety features include collision detection and avoidance with automatic emergency braking, lane keeping assist, blind-spot warning with cross-traffic alert, automatic high beams, and rearview camera.

Upgrading to the Co-Pilot360+ brings additional safety tech and autonomous driving features like full stop-and-go adaptive cruise control, navigation, and evasive steering assist.

Taken together, these upgrades make the 2020 Ford Escape one of the most exciting vehicles in its class, and are only a small selection of the upgrades and standard features on the 2020 Escape.

2020 Ford Escape Hybrid Powertrain

The 2020 Ford Escape's hybrid powertrain is a 2.5l Atkinson cycle four-cylinder paired with two electric motors. The Atkinson cycle hybrid motor is more efficient than a traditional engine due to its reduction in fuel intake without a corresponding drop in power. This engine style has helped revolutionize the hybrid market, and will provide the 2020 Ford Escape with strong, efficient power. And combined with the two electric motors and CVT, plenty of low-range torque.

Iowa buyers can expect truly impressive fuel efficiency from the Escape Hybrid, as well as a wealth of standard features. And unlike many competitors, the hybrid is treated as an engine option rather than a totally different vehicle.

That means you can get a Ford Escape SE Hybrid, Limited Hybrid, and even a plug-in option releasing in the near future.
