The 2020 Ford Escape has finally been launched. The one we expected for a long time has been completely redesigned, and now offers more impressive looks and performance than ever. The compact SUV Ford Escape is a well-defined choice, since its first release on the North American market in 2005. And this new version will only rekindle your desires.

2020 Ford Escape: New Performance Features

With a 200-pound weight reduction (and therefore better aerodynamics), an improved 8-speed automatic transmission and four available engines, the 2020 Escape will be one of the most challenging crossovers on the Canadian market. In the high-end version, it will have a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine capable of producing 250 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque, as well as towing capacity of more than 3,500 pounds when properly configured.

But the real novelty is the coming of a hybrid configuration - it will include four EV driving modes (Auto EV, EV Now, EV Later and the all-new Charge EV mode) that can adapt to your driving style. In the standard hybrid version, it will be efficient but in the plug-in version, it can even travel up to 48 kilometers in 100% electric mode.
