A Few Performance Options to Choose From

You can customize your 2020 Ford Escape to better fit your preferences. From the engine under the hood to the drivetrain, this SUV gives you options.

If you're keen on efficiency, the 2.5L hybrid 4-cylinder or the 2.5L hybrid plug-in 4-cylinder would be a great fit for you. There's a 1.5L EcoBoost® and a 2.0L EcoBoost® engine as well.

As for the drivetrain, you can either go for the front-wheel drive set up or the refined Intelligent AWD set up. Moving you from one gear to the next will be either an electronically controlled Continuously Variable Transmission or an 8-speed automatic with accompanying paddle shifters.

Lastly, there's 3,500 pounds of maximum towing capacity when the SUV is properly equipped.

Interior Space Where You Need it


Finding a comfortable seating position in the 2020 Ford Escape is simple thanks to all the interior room.

For example, both the legroom and headroom are spacious:

  • 40 inches of front headroom
  • 39.3 inches of rear headroom
  • 42.4 inches of front legroom
  • 40.7 inches of rear legroom

There's also ample hip room so you don't have to be squeezed against other passengers on long trips. Up front, you'll enjoy 55.2 inches while the second row offers 53.3 inches of hip room.

Five passengers will be able to lounge in style thanks to the 104 cubic feet of total passenger volume. As for cargo, there's 37.5 cubic feet of space behind the second row and a total of 65.4 cubic feet of space behind the front seats.

Safety is a Must
