2020 Ford Escape Oklahoma

At the start of this new decade, it’s good to take a hard look at our consumer habits.

While we are gravitating toward consumer choices that highlight sustainability, our car choices are also drastically changing. The past twenty years have seen the dawn of the SUV, and many great SUV contenders have come out of the woodwork since then.

The 2020 Ford Escape was released before the new decade came around, but that doesn’t mean that it’s an SUV to be ignored. Its redesign has made it much more attractive and an overall better-performing car. If you’re an SUV lover, or someone looking for something with the capabilities of an SUV but with an edgier look, the 2020 Ford Escape won’t disappoint. Here’s a detailed overview of everything good about the beautiful, completely-redone 2020 Ford Escape.

2020 Ford Escape: The Specs

When it comes to purchasing a car, it’s always good to look at the basics before you fall in love with anything else about the vehicle.

At its core, the Ford Escape is one of the more affordable SUVs on the market, with the base trim starting at merely $24,885. The car seats five, and adjustable seating is one of the perks that gives the Ford Escape the potential for extra legroom (we’ll go into this later). Like all newer Ford Vehicles, the Ford Escape comes standard with Ford CoPilot 360 technology, which is a combination of advanced tech that helps keep Ford Escape drivers safe. CoPilot 360 includes BLIS with cross-traffic alerts, pre-collision braking and automatic emergency braking, a rearview camera to assist with backups, and auto high beam headlamps to keep you and other drivers safe.

The Ford Escape also comes standard with Electric Power-Assisted Steering and post-collision braking. The transmission is an eight-speed automatic, and the engine is a 1.5 liter EcoBoost engine, which helps keep your gas mileage down while still providing the same kind of performance. The Ford Escape is 4WD with traction control and disc brakes with ABS. It is clear that Ford was interested in keeping the driver safe, and that doesn’t stop with its most basic features.

Ample Safety Features

While Ford is used to a range of customers, the 2020 Ford Escape is marketed toward people looking for additional safety features – like families. But even if you don’t have a family, you can appreciate the lengths at which Ford went to keep its Escape drivers safe. Each 2020 edition comes standard with a mini spare tire, dual-stage driver and front-passenger airbags, head restraints, height-adjustable retractable safety belts for front seats, LATCH systems for child seats and safety, driver knee airbag, front seat-mounted side-impact airbags, tire pressure monitoring system, post-crash SOS system, and more.

The goal of the Ford Escape is to keep you focused and safe while driving and in the event of an emergency – in essence, it says that accidents happen, and if they happen to you, you’ll be prepared and safe.

Lots of Space For a Conservative-looking SUV

From the outside, the 2020 Ford Escape is a relatively small-appearing car. It has a feel like a Subaru Outback, but with a little bit more panache. Most people will be able to look over the top of the car when standing next to it. However, when you get into the Escape, it’s surprising how much room the car has. It is 180.5 inches in length, 66.1 inches high, and 74.1 inches wide. The total cubic foot room per passenger is 103 cubic feet, and it has a cargo room of 99 cubic feet.

When you have kids whining about their sibling touching them in the backseat, or a nervous passenger kicking the back of your chair while you are driving, these more technical specifications become moot. Suffice it to say that for as much room as the car has without modification, and it makes even more room for passengers and the driver alike by adding in custom seat adjustments. The driver’s seat is a six-way manual adjustment, and the passenger’s seat is a 4-way manual adjustment. As far as the rear seats go, they are 40/60 and completely foldable, so they can work as extra storage space when you’re not using them to transport precious cargo.

An Endlessly Customizable Vehicle

Ford doesn’t skimp on its trims. Even when you see its most basic cars out on the street, it’s unlikely that you’ll see two that look exactly alike. The 2020 Ford Escape has six trim levels with eleven configurations available. These include:

  • The S Trim
    • Front-wheel drive configuration
    • AWD configuration
  • The SE Trim
    • Front-wheel drive configuration
    • AWD configuration
  • The SE Sport Trim
    • Front-wheel drive configuration
    • AWD configuration
  • The SEL Trim
    • Front-wheel drive configuration
    • AWD configuration
  • The Titanium Hybrid Trim
    • Front-wheel drive configuration
    • AWD configuration
  • The Titanium Trim
    • AWD configuration

Each trim comes with different perks, but also has optimizable paint colors, technology additions, and more.

One of the Most Energy Efficient SUVs Available

The Ford Escape was the first hybrid SUV available on the market, and it rolled out in 2006 – just a few years after the initial release of the Ford Escape. Since then, Ford has worked to make its energy-efficient cars even more energy efficient. The Ford Escape, in turn, has completely stepped up to its role as one of the most energy-efficient cars on the market. The Ford Escape Hybrid starts at under $30,000 and has multiple trim options to keep your green ride as customizable as possible. The price of the car evens itself out within no time, as the fuel efficiency of the 2020 Hybrid is an average of about 40 MPG combined.

The beauty of the Ford Escape is that it is easily enjoyed regardless of what type of person you are. It has relatively good, rugged features, which makes it a great camping vehicle. The safety features are above and beyond, which means you can keep yourself and your family safe. And for the penny pincher, it gets excellent gas mileage and saves you from having to fill up your tank multiple times a week.
