The latest infotainment for the modern-day driver is available in the 2020 Ford Escape. B&O® sound system by Bang and Olufsen with 10 speakers now gives you dynamic and dulcet musical performances without ever needing to leave your new SUV. Also, the dashboard features a 12.3-in. configurable digital instrument cluster, perfect for navigating this SUV's systems.


There is a diverse array of safety features aboard the 2020 Escape, such as available active park assist 2.0 and adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go and lane centering; and a head-up display. Ford Co-Pilot360™ is a suite included on the Escape that features BLIS® with Cross Traffic Alert, pre-collision assist with automatic emergency braking, auto high-beam headlamps, lane-keeping system, and a rear view camera.

Power & Handling

The 2020 Escape provides either a hybrid or plug-in hybrid option with a 2.5L iVCT Atkinson-cycle hybrid engine. The gas engines are a 1.5L EcoBoost® and 2.0L EcoBoost with auto start-stop technology.

Additionally, there are five selectable drive modes: Normal, Eco, Slippery, Sport, and Deep Snow/Sand. These allow you to choose which mode is best based on your driving conditions.

The available AWD disconnect on the 2020 Ford Escape is built to allow you to only utilize the front wheels of the SUV when AWD is unnecessary for a smooth drive. This reduces the energy needed to propel the Escape.

Release Date

The 2020 Ford Escape will be available in autumn 2019. Contact Great Lakes Ford at (888) 538-8577 or through our online form to be kept in the loop on the latest release date updates.
