The 2020 Ford Escape is quite the vehicle, consisting of several attractive feature sets as well as solid safety protections. The rear passenger seats allow occupants to slide & recline on them, which is new to the model as is a rotary gear shift dial within the center console. Even bigger than that is the fact that a Hybrid version becomes possible in 2020, and this couples well with the 2.0L turbo engine being measurably faster, in terms of acceleration!

It also institutes a brand-new 1.5L EcoBoost turbocharged 3-cylinder engine to succeed the engine in preceding year models.

Can you get into the powertrains?

If you are looking into buying the hybrid (or plug-in hybrid) model formats, you will be enjoying a 2.5-liter iVCT Atkinson-cycle hybrid engine that makes the magic happen with friends like an electronic CVT, an electric 88-kW motor, and a reduced-in-size and liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery. Either hybrid formation can tow up to 1,500-pounds. The non-hybrids use an eight-speed automatic transmission. There is an original 1.5L EcoBoost turbocharged 3-cylinder with 181-horsepower and 190 lb-ft of torque for the gas-only formats, in addition to a 2.0L EcoBoost 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that rocks an Auto Start-Stop feature.

The Escape S model brings to bear a 4.2'' instrument cluster, an engine block heater, twin chromed exhaust tips, skid plates, a 6-way manual driver seat, and Daytime Running Lights. Moving over to the Escape SE model, look for elements like a selection for Sirius XM Traffic with Travel Link, the popular SYNC 3 system, a Panoramic Vista Roof alternative, and Silver-painted & seventeen-inch Shadow aluminum wheels. The Escape SEL model then peppers in ingredients like dark window tint on the second-row side & liftgate, a ten-way power heated driver seat (and ActiveX material), a heated/leather-clad steering wheel, and likewise allows the Panoramic Vista Roof option! With the Escape Titanium model, you won't have to look hard for luxury items, such as a hands-free foot-sensing liftgate, nineteen-inch Machined-Face aluminum wheels with Dark Tarnished-painted pockets, a 10-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system, and a Push-Button Start! It further adds on with a 12.3-inch digital instrument grouping and an optional Head-Up Display! Plus, this refined model can be a 2.5L hybrid instead of the gas 2.0L engine; it's the buyer's choice!

It also lets in top-notch details like a four-way manual passenger seat, a SE Sport Premium Package, 17" wheels, and Black roof rack side rails. The SE Sport Premium Package is organized of impressive highlights like 19-inch wheels with Ebony-color pockets and a Panoramic Vista Roof.

Could you go over some of the more modern features?

The AdvanceTrac with RSC (Roll Stability Control) system watches like a hungry hawk at the field's edge for forces like over/understeer, roll motion, and wheel slippage via binary gyroscopic sensors that measure yaw & roll speeds. Then there is Curve Control, which feels for notable curves that are coming up and auto-maintains the vehicle's speed respectively, contingent on damp or dusty asphalt, and it accomplishes this speed-check by controlling both throttle reduction and anti-lock braking. Take a moment to consider the in-car delivery with Key by Amazon for Prime members if you really want to set yourself apart from the neighbors!
