Meet the New 2020 Ford Escape
With a completely redesigned look, better performance and new comfort features, the 2020 Ford Escape is better than ever. This new model maintains all of its popular features and will be offered with more choices than ever before. It will offer more versatility and smart new technology and will be available with four new propulsion choices, including two all-new hybrids.
To create a sportier look for the all-new Ford Escape, designers turned to some of the most high-profile sports cars in the Ford showroom. The shield-shaped trapezoidal grille is inspired by the sixth-generation Mustang, while the lower front end borrows from Ford GT. Compared to the current model, the all-new Escape stands lower, wider and longer.
Second-row sliding seats are standard across the 2020 Escape line-up. In gas engine-powered models these sliding seats allow rear-seat passengers to enjoy best-in-class maximum second-row legroom with the seats in the full rearward position, plus increased knee clearance and footwell length for a more comfortable ride. With the second-row seats in the full forward position, the rear cargo area extends roughly six inches to offer 37.5 cubic feet of cargo space in gas engine-powered models. The cargo area was designed to accommodate four sets of golf clubs or a full-size dog crate.
The new Ford Escape will feature new powertrains and transmission systems, a reduction in weight, improved aerodynamics and updated suspension system to make this new model the best-performing, most fun-to-drive Escape ever. All 2020 Ford Escape models will have an all-new suspension and improved isolation with a new isolated rear subframe. Gas engine-powered models as well as the standard hybrid will be available with all-wheel drive. EcoBoost engine models will have a new quick-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission for smooth, responsive shifting.
