Once you've chosen the model you want to drive around Niagara Falls, Buffalo, and Grand Island, your next decision revolves around selecting the proper trim level. Trims are a big part of any vehicle as they help you customize the model to better fit your wants and needs. The Ford Escape is a great example. If you're considering this charming SUV, then our 2020 Ford Escape trim levels guide will give you a helpful look at each variation.

To test drive any trim, you can look to Basil Ford of Niagara Falls!

Ford Escape S

The Ford Escape S is a great place to begin our trim level guide and not just because it's the standard model. More importantly, the S has a rich feature list that presents a great value.

Safety is key in any Ford model, and the S comes with standard Ford Co-Pilot360™, which includes the following features:

  • BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross Traffic Alert
  • Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking
  • Auto High-Beam Headlamps
  • Lane-Keeping System
  • Rear View Camera


Next up comes the Ford Escape SE, an option that will appeal to technology junkies seeking an intuitive infotainment set up.

SYNC® 3 is a straightforward way to access music, navigation, and much more. Plus, your touchscreen display will have the same applications that you have on your phone after you set up Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™.

SE Sport Hybrid

As the name suggests, the Ford Escape SE Sport Hybrid places an emphasis on efficiency in a way that exceeds other Escape trim levels.

The 2.5L 4-cylinder engine is mated to an 88 kW electric motor. A liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery comes into play as well, helping generate power from its position under the second-row seats. This position is important because it doesn't interfere with cargo volume.


To make your daily life a little easier, look to the SEL trim level of the 2020 Ford Escape.

To begin, there's the helpful hands-free, foot-activated liftgate that's helpful when loading groceries or trying to store luggage for a road trip. The ActiveX™ seating package swaddles the seats in stain-resistant material-a good thing when you have young kids in the rear.

Finally, the reverse sensing system comes in handy when you're navigating your way out of a crowded parking garage.


Tech features take center stage when you reach the Titanium, which is the highest trim level offered in the Ford Escape.

Safety is improved thanks to the inclusion of Ford Co-Pilot360™ Assisst+, which introduces Adaptive Cruise Control, Stop-and-Go Lane Centering, Evasive Steering Assist, and Voice-Activated Navigation.

Oh, Active Park Assist 2.0 is quite useful as well!
