The deceptively spacious Ford Escape brings a careful mix of power, comfort, and sportiness to drivers. The new Ford Escape offers up four powertrain options, with two being hybrid variants. The new Ford Escape is available in four main trim levels: S, SE, SEL, and Titanium.

Powertrain Options

Powering the base S trim of the Ford Escape is a turbocharged 1.5-liter inline-3 engine that makes 181 horsepower and 190 pound-feet of torque. Drivers interested in a more powerful gas engine can look to an available turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-4 engine (250 horsepower/280 pound-feet of torque). The plug-in hybrid and standard hybrid are powered by the same 2.5-liter inline-4 engine, which makes 200 horsepower and 155 pound-feet of torque.

Tech fit for the Future

The Ford Escape doesn't skimp in the tech realm, providing drivers with ample standard and available tech features. The base S trim comes outfitted with a AM/FM radio, Bluetooth connectivity, and a basic audio system. The SE trim improves things by adding in an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment display, a Sync3 infotainment system, and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto. The top of the line Titanium trim provides the most robust set of tech features, with a 10-seapker Bang & Olufsen audio system and an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system coming standard.

Ford Co-Pilot360 Safety Suite

The Ford Co-Pilot360 safety suite comes standard with all trim levels of the new Ford Escape, even the base S trim. The base S trim includes automatic emergency braking (with pedestrian detection), lane-keeping assist, blind-spot detection, and automatic high beam headlights. The Escape also provides drivers with a few upgradeable driver assistance features, including evasive steering and active parking assist.
