When it comes to performance, the 2020 Ford Escape model manages to edge out its predecessors with a gain of about two HP. This year replaces the previous generation's 1.5-liter EcoBoost turbo four-cylinder engine with an upgraded three cylinder version (though the four cylinder is still available as an option). This energy-saving engine can sense when not all cylinders are necessary, shutting one down when possible. Drivers of past models will also notice that the 2020 Escape now has an eight speed transmission instead of six speeds, providing a an overall satisfying performance upgrade. It's also very notable that this year's vehicle comes with five different driving modes: Normal, Eco, Sport, Slippery, and Snow and Sand. The majority of drivers will switch between Normal and Eco most of the time, while Sport is intended for driving conditions where faster turns and more flexible steering are required. Slippery and Snow and Sand are meanwhile intended for the weather / terrain conditions they are named after.

In addition to more legroom, the interior of the 2020 Escape also offers more hip and shoulder room thanks to its width. The windows also start a little lower in this one, allowing for more luxurious views and an even more spacious feel. As far as tech features go, this one comes equipped with an 8-inch infotainment touchscreen (with Ford's Sync 3 that supports both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto) that also has the convenience of freestanding volume and tuning knobs. The dash also has a head-up display as an available option, though it's basically just an additional screen that rises up. It's also notable that this Escape comes with Ford's latest safety features package, Ford Co-Pilot360. This includes pre-collision detection with automatic emergency braking, automatic high beams, lane keeping assist, a backup camera, and blind-spot warning with cross-traffic alert. Packed in on top of these features are adaptive cruise control and evasive steering assistance.

The 2020 Escape comes in five main trim options: S, SE and SEL for the regular engine options and SE Sport and Titanium for the Hybrid options. Aside from some slight engine power differences, the main thing that makes these different trims unique are the luxury options available (for example, heated leather seats on the higher trims). The Titanium Hybrid comes with the most features of all, with the added luxury of a remote anti-theft alarm system, turn signal mirrors, front fog lights and an LED headlamp. Pricing starts between $24,885 and $36,685, depending on the trim. No major incentives from Ford have been announced yet for the 2020 Escape, though Hybrid buyers may be eligible for Federal rebates for their low gas emissions. Additionally, all Ford buyers who are members of the military or students / recent graduates may be eligible for a $500 incentive.
