New 2020 Ford Escape Engine Options

The new 2020 Ford Escape brings together style, technology and several impressive engine options. Escape and small SUV fans alike are sure to approve of this awesome vehicle.



Ford engineers designed the 2020 Escape to be more car-like than ever before, by making the model slightly longer, lighter, and wider for extra cabin space. This redesign is part of Ford’s process of shedding its dated car lineup and focusing more on their popular SUV, light duty, and heavy-duty trucks.

This slimmer version of the Escape is the perfect compact crossover SUV to help previous customers making the transition from their old Focus, Fusion, or Taurus to unfamiliar SUV territory.
