The 2020 Ford Escape debuts a radically new look for the fourth generation of the Blue Oval's compact crossover. There's a new buzz from underneath the skin, too, where the model is now available with hybrid and plug-in hybrid powertrains, in addition to a pair of turbocharged choices.
The 2020 Escape is over 200 pounds (91 kilograms) lighter than the outgoing model. However, the footprint is larger due to a wider track and longer length. The ride height is lower, too. These revised dimensions and the new arching roofline make the latest generation look less rugged. Instead, the aesthetic has more in common with a five-door hatchback to our eyes but with a taller ride.
