New 2020 Ford Escape – Technology
Ford Co-Pilot360™ Technology
Ford Co-Pilot360™ is an advanced suite of standard driver-assist technologies that includes BLIS® with Cross Traffic Alert, Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, Auto High-Beam Headlamps, Lane-Keeping System and Rear View Camera. Ford Escape also makes additional technology available that is designed to help keep you in command, from the driveway to the highway.
Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking
If the system’s sensors detect a potential collision with a car or pedestrian in front of you, a warning flashes and an audible alert sounds.* Also, the brakes will precharge and increase brake-assist sensitivity to provide full responsiveness when you do brake. If you do not take corrective action and a collision is imminent, the brakes can automatically apply.
BLIS with Cross-Traffic Alert
This feature helps increase your awareness where you need it most. BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert uses radar to identify if a vehicle is detected in your blind spot and alerts you with an indicator light in the appropriate exterior mirror. Cross-Traffic Alert also uses radar to watch for traffic behind you as you’re slowly backing out of a parking spot or driveway. If cross-traffic sensors detect a vehicle approaching, you will be audibly and visually alerted.
Available Active Park Assist 2.0
Parking made easy — even in tight parallel or reverse perpendicular spots. When engaged, it can help locate a potential spot. Then all you have to do is brake to a complete stop, shift into Neutral and hold down the Active Park Assist button — your vehicle does the rest.
Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go
This available feature slows down your vehicle if the traffic ahead has stopped or slowed. Available Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go technology can bring your vehicle to a complete stop in stopped traffic and resume as traffic begins to move.
Rear View Camera
The Rear View Camera provides a great view of what’s behind your vehicle. Just make sure to keep the camera lens free of debris (like snow or dust) and you can navigate your vehicle in Reverse with confidence.
Evasive Steering Assist
This available feature can help make it easier to avoid a potential collision. It doesn’t steer for you, but it can provide extra steering support if the system warning goes off and you need to maneuver around the vehicle ahead.
The Lane-Keeping System can help you stay in your lane, even during a moment of distraction. This feature scans your vehicle’s position between the lines in the road ahead and can alert you if you’re starting to edge out of your lane.
Voice-Activated Navigation System
This available feature with SYNC adds pinch-to-zoom capability that can help you stay confidently on course.
Auto High-Beam Headlamps
Auto High-Beam Headlamps can sense poor lighting conditions and switch on to light your path ahead. They can even sense oncoming headlights and dim automatically, so you don’t have to worry about blinding other drivers.
Available SYNC® 3
Smart hardware. Smart software. Smart design. Simple music search, capacitive touchscreen, enhanced voice recognition, and climate control keep your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road. SYNC® 3 also brings you the power of Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility to your Ford.

Also, the all-new Escape Hybrid packages its liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery smartly outside of the vehicle below the floor of the second-row seats rather than occupying a significant portion of the cargo area. The briefcase-shaped battery in the standard hybrid measures less than one-third the size of the old Escape Hybrid battery. Standard on all Escape Hybrid* and plug-in hybrid models.**
Plug-In 2.5L iVCT Atkinson-Cycle I-4 engine
The 2020 Escape Plug-In Hybrid* has a Level 1/Level 2 AC charging port. Using a 110-volt Level 1 charger, the estimated time to fully charge the battery is 10 to 11 hours.
