2020 Ford Escape Hybrid Overview

Ford's Escape Hybrid makes a return for 2020. It features the same styling as the rest of the redesigned Escape line, but it loses some rear legroom and cargo capacity to make room for more complex driving hardware.

Powering every Escape Hybrid is a 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder engine, an electric motor, and a 1.1-kilowatt-hour battery. Together, they transmit power to a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). According to Ford, this engine is projected to produce 198 horsepower. It comes standard with front-wheel drive (FWD). An all-wheel-drive (AWD) system, which mechanically disconnects from the engine when it isn’t needed in order to conserve fuel, is also available. As of this writing, EPA fuel-economy ratings aren't available.

Ford offers the Escape Hybrid in SE, SEL, and Titanium trims. The standard features include 4G LTE WiFi for up to 10 devices and an 8-inch touchscreen. Available features include a 12.3-inch LCD instrument cluster with 3D graphics; a 575-watt Bang & Olufsen sound system; and integration with Amazon Alexa, Waze, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto.

Like many modern vehicles, the Escape Hybrid aims high when it comes to safety. Standard and available features include a reversing camera, lane-departure warning, lane-keeping assist, evasive-steering assist, adaptive cruise control with traffic crawl, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, automatic high beams, and parking assist.

The 2020 Escape Hybrid looks more capable than ever before. It competes with other hybrid SUVs like the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid.
