In 2020, Ford unveiled a brand-new edition of the Escape that features two completely redesigned hybrid systems. Keep reading to learn more about the 2020 Escape’s hybrid updates, stylistic changes, and spaciousness.
Efficient hybrid powertrain
Ford’s redesigned 2020 Escape is available with a traditional hybrid powertrain as well as a plug-in hybrid powertrain, both featuring a 2.5-liter iVCT Atkinson-cycle engine. The traditional Escape Hybrid reaches up to 200 horsepower and has an EPA-estimated combined fuel economy of 41 mpg*. The Escape Plug-in Hybrid is compatible with both Level 1 and Level 2 chargers, and can be fully charged in as little as 3.5 hours. Both hybrid variants are powerful enough to tow up to 1,500 pounds.
In addition to its newly-revamped powertrains, the 2020 Escape Hybrid also sports a sleek new interior and exterior to match. The 2020 Escape Hybrid’s exterior profile is less angular than the prior edition, delivering a more premium aura. A gorgeous available Panoramic Vista roof allows for natural light and fresh air to flood the flood the cabin. Inside, new mood lighting highlights premium wood and leather accents, a rotary gear shifter, and a massive infotainment screen that puts the world at your fingertips.
Though some hybrid models come with bulky batteries that significantly encroach on valuable passenger and cargo space, the 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid was expertly engineered to avoid that pitfall. The Escape Hybrid’s battery is situated on the underside of the vehicle to allow for more room to stretch. Front seat occupants have 42.4 inches of leg room, 55.2 inches of hip room, and 57.6 inches of shoulder room, while rear passengers will enjoy 38.9 inches of leg room, 53.3 inches of hip room, and 56 inches of shoulder room. The Escape Hybrid also offers up to 34.4 cubic feet of cargo space with all seats occupied, or up to 60.8 cubic feet with the second-row seats folded flat.
