    2020 Ford Escape Debuts With Whole New Look, Two Hybrid Choices

    2020 Ford Escape Debuts With Whole New Look, Two Hybrid Choices
    The new Escape is larger than the current one but sheds 200 pounds.

    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.

    Re: 2020 Ford Escape Debuts With Whole New Look, Two Hybrid Choices

    Looks really good.

    Obviously this is the Euro-spec Kuga, but to my eyes, it looks both "mature" and "modern" at the same time, without screaming "affordable". I get a quasi Mazda CX-5 kind of a vibe from the side profile. From the rear, I see echoes of the current Grant Cherokee's rear-taillamp cluster. I'm not a huge fan of the interior, but for this segment, it is far from the worst place to spend time. Overall, I think it has a much more cohesive and welcoming of a design than the current product.

    What's more, it looks like they really improved things on the powertrain side. The hybrid will be a huge hit for them. The previous generation Escape and Mariner hybrids were very, very popular. People were scratching their heads at the time as to why Ford would have cancelled the hybrid when it was a hit with customers (the answer is that they were hoping that offering a dedicated C-Max hybrid would be a winner --- they were wrong).

    Considering that the current Escape still sells very well for Ford, they couldn't screw it up. From the little we see here, I don't think they'll lose any customers (and might even attract a few new ones).

    All of this, of course, makes one hope that GM is taking the Equinox and Terrain MCEs seriously.

    Re: 2020 Ford Escape Debuts With Whole New Look, Two Hybrid Choices

    Looks like a smash hit. Ford has all of the bases covered. Great job!

    I was however, hoping for an ST model with a manual. I will keep dreaming.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Here is the American press release:

    All-New Ford Escape Brings Style and Substance to Small SUVs with Class-Leading Hybrids, Flexibility and Exclusive Technology

     Completely redesigned new 2020 Escape best offers four new propulsion choices – including two all-new hybrids; standard hybrid targets best-in-class EPA-estimated range of more than 550 miles; plug-in hybrid targets a best-in-class EPA-estimated pure-electric range of 30+ miles

     With unrivaled flexibility, all-new Escape introduces new sliding second-row seats that enable best-in-class second-row legroom and as much as 37.5 cubic feet of cargo space

     Ford’s smartest-ever small SUV features new selectable drive modes and Ford CoPilot360™ driver-assist technology; available features include a 12.3-inch all-digital instrument cluster, a first-for-Ford in North America heads-up display and first-in-class driver-assist features Active Park Assist 2.0 and Evasive Steering Assist

    DEARBORN, Mich., April 2, 2019 – With today’s reveal of the stylish new Escape, featuring the small SUV’s best-ever performance, flexibility and smart new technology, Ford is reinventing the model that helped drive the popularity of the segment.

    Escape, which debuted the world’s first hybrid SUV in 2005, brings back two hybrid choices for 2020, a standard hybrid and a plug-in variant, and introduces technologies ranging from drive modes and driver-assist features to electric vehicle ingenuity and on-board connectivity.

    “This all-new Escape brings a sleeker, sportier design with the capability to take you on just about any of your life’s adventures,” said Kumar Galhotra, Ford’s president, North America. “With our class-leading hybrid powertrains, customers will spend less time at the gas station and more time on the road.”

    To create a sportier look for the all-new Escape, designers turned to some of the most highprofile sports cars in the Ford showroom. The shield-shaped trapezoidal grille is inspired by the sixth-generation Mustang, while the lower front end borrows from Ford GT. Compared to the current model, the all-new Escape stands lower, wider and longer.

    With a sloped roofline, optimized liftgate spoiler and strake, and efficient underbody, the all-new Escape is the most aerodynamic to date. Meanwhile, it sheds more than 200 pounds from the current model, due in part to the extensive use of high-strength, lightweight steel.

    Every model in the lineup, whether powered by one of two EcoBoost® engines or the all-new hybrid powertrains, targets an EPA-estimated range of at least 400 miles per tank.* The standard hybrid with front-wheel drive targets best-in-class EPA-estimated range of more than 550 miles.*

    Best-performing Escape ever.

    New powertrains and transmission systems, a reduction in weight, improved aerodynamics and updated suspension system all contribute to one undeniable fact: this is the best-performing, most fun-to-drive Escape ever.

    Gas engine-powered models as well as the standard hybrid are available with all-wheel drive. EcoBoost-equipped models get a new quick-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission for smooth, responsive shifting, while every Escape receives an all-new suspension and improved isolation with a new isolated rear subframe.

    “This new vehicle performs like no other Escape before,” said Jim Hughes, Escape chief program engineer. “It’s quick, it’s responsive and, in staying true to the standard set by three generations of Escapes before it, it’s a heck of a lot of fun to drive.”

    The new 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine, available on Titanium, is projected to produce 250 horsepower and 275 lb.-ft. of torque using 93 octane fuel, while turning in a 0-60 mph time up to 10 percent faster than the outgoing Escape 2.0-liter. When properly configured, it is rated to tow 3,500 pounds.**

    The all-new 1.5-liter EcoBoost, standard on S, SE and SEL, is projected to produce 180 horsepower and 177 lb.-ft. of torque using 93 octane fuel. When properly configured, it is rated to tow 2,000 pounds.** To help conserve fuel, the 1.5-liter EcoBoost debuts cylinder deactivation, a Ford first for North America, which senses when one cylinder isn’t needed and shuts it down automatically. The system can activate or deactivate a cylinder in 14 milliseconds to maintain a smooth ride.

    SE Sport and Titanium models come standard with Ford’s innovative fourth-generation hybrid propulsion system, which includes an all-new 2.5-liter Atkinson cycle hybrid engine and electronic continuously variable transmission. The front-wheel-drive hybrid model is projected to produce a combined system horsepower of 198, and a top speed of 85 mph in electric-only mode.

    The plug-in hybrid variant, available on every trim level except S and SE Sport, projects a bestin-class EPA-estimated range of at least 30 miles in electric-only mode. Escape Plug-In Hybrid has a Level 1 / Level 2 AC charging port. Using a 110-volt Level 1 charge, the estimated time to fully charge the battery is 10 to 11 hours. Using a 240-volt Level 2 charge, charge time drops to roughly 3.5 hours.

    Hybrid models feature four EV modes that allow customers to select the settings most suitable for their individual needs. This means:  In Auto EV mode, the vehicle decides whether to run on gas or electric power  In EV Now mode, drivers can operate on all-electric driving  In EV Later mode, drivers can switch to full gas-powered driving to conserve electric miles for later  In all-new EV Charge mode, drivers can continue to charge the battery while driving and generate electric-only miles to use later

    Unrivaled flexibility Sliding second-row seats in gas engine-powered models allow rear-seat passengers to enjoy best-in-class maximum second-row legroom with the seats in the full rearward position, plus increased knee clearance and footwell length for a more comfortable ride.

    With the second-row seats in the full forward position, the rear cargo area extends roughly six inches to offer 37.5 cubic feet of cargo space in gas engine-powered models (cargo and load capacity limited by weight and weight distribution). The cargo area was designed to accommodate four sets of golf clubs or a full-size dog crate.

    The all-new Escape Hybrid packages its liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery smartly below the second-row seats rather than occupying a significant portion of the cargo area. The briefcaseshaped battery in the standard hybrid measures approximately one-third the size of the old Escape Hybrid battery.

    Despite a slight drop in vehicle height and with the hybrid battery packaged below, the engineering team was able to increase headroom throughout. First- and second-row headroom, shoulder room and hip room all improve versus the current Escape.

    Smartest Escape Ever With a selectable drive mode system standard across the lineup, Escape makes it easy for Escape owners to create the ride experience they desire – or the one that conditions demand. Modes are tailored for normal, eco, sport and slippery, plus snow and sand conditions.

    Titanium models are available with an all-new heads-up display, a first-for-Ford in North America. The feature that projects information onto a 6-inch screen, giving drivers easy access to important information such as vehicle speed without taking their eyes off the road.

    Class-exclusive driver-assist technologies include available Active Park Assist 2.0 and Evasive Steering Assist. Active Park Assist 2.0 allows the driver to park in a parallel or perpendicular spot with the touch of a button, without having to work the steering wheel, gear shifter, gas or brake pedal. Evasive Steering Assist detects a slower-moving or stationary vehicle ahead and provides steering support that can assist the driver to avoid an imminent collision.***

    Escape comes standard with Ford Co-Pilot360™, and makes available other driver-assist features such as Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go and Lane-Centering.

    FordPass Connect™ is a standard feature that provides 4G LTE Wi-Fi for up to 10 mobile devices with compatible wireless subscription service. FordPass Connect also gives drivers remote access to their Escape, allowing them to use their smartphone to lock, unlock, locate and start the vehicle, as well as monitor key vehicle diagnostics.

    Drivers and passengers can keep compatible mobile devices charged with an available wireless charging pad in the front center console. Also available are type A and type C USB charging ports as well as three 12-volt charging sockets.

    An 8-inch touch screen – standard on SE models and above – shares information with the available 12.3-inch all-digital instrument cluster, which displays important vehicle information such as speedometer and fuel level. It uses 3D animated graphics to indicate the drive mode.

    Available SYNC® 3 is compatible with available features such as Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™, Ford+Alexa and Waze navigation. For music lovers, Escape offers an available 575-watt 10-speaker B&O Sound System by Bang & Olufsen.

    The all-new Escape, available in S, SE, SE Sport, SEL and Titanium series trim levels, is built at Louisville Assembly Plant in Kentucky. Vehicles are due to reach showrooms this fall. Plug-in hybrid units are due to arrive next spring.

    History of Escape Escape debuted on North American roads for the 2001 model year, introducing drivers to a unique blend of style, convenience, efficiency and capability. In its first full year on sale, Escape became America’s best-selling small SUV.

    For the 2005 model year, Ford became the first U.S. manufacturer to offer a hybrid when it introduced the Escape Hybrid, the world’s first-ever hybrid SUV. Between 2004 and 2012, 114,000 Escape Hybrids were sold.

    For the 2013 model year, Ford introduced a third-generation Escape, with European styling shared with its global cousin, Kuga. The change proved popular, and Escape remained one of the top-selling vehicles in the Ford showroom – and in the fast-growing small SUV segment. To date, Ford has sold more than 4.5 million Escapes in North America; more than 98 percent of them are still on the road today.

    Sharp-looking and appears to be well executed. This and the Equinox appear to be good choices for those looking at compact crossovers.

    Quite honestly it looks fairly good considering the input of Ford Europe. Covering all their bases with stylish vehicles.

    Not bad, not bad at all. Ford trying for erstwhile Focus buyers. The 2020 Equinox will be getting a face lift, should be interesting to see these two duke it out.

    I find it sad that some people wish for GM to fail and can't comprehend any good news. A plausible explanation for this kind of behavior is that you have a miserable life so you wish the same to others. Cory Pham, Autoblog Poster

    GM must return its divisions to being interdependent entities within the corporation. Decentralize and free the different divisions talents to foster brand differentiation and customer loyalty.

    It looks like a Nissan Rogue in the side profile, from the front a little like jaquar. To me its ugly like most fords except for the mustang.

    Ford following the stupid screen design on top of the dash. Looks so dumb and visual distraction. Just like the Koreans and some Mercedes.
