The Ford Escape was among the first small crossover-SUVs to be produced, showing the world that big options could come in small packages. Now in its fourth generation, the Escape shows no signs of letting up.

2020 Ford Escape?

The 2020 Ford Escape has been redesigned from the ground up, leading the charge of a brand new fourth-generation that sports the latest in amenities, safety, and performance. A completely remastered exterior has been aerodynamically sculpted, utilizing features such as active grille shutters, underbody shielding, and overall aerodynamic shapes. This assists with not only performance but efficiency as well, netting a 31 mpg highway rating.

Speaking of performance, the Escape has surprisingly robust options for a vehicle its size. Starting at a standard 1.5-liter turbocharged I3 and its 181 horsepower, the engine line-up is potent from the outset. An available 2.0-liter turbocharged I4 really sets the bar though, providing 250 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque.

Inside the cabin, technology reigns supreme. Centered around Ford's Sync 3 infotainment system, an 8-inch touchscreen provides access to navigation, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Amazon Alexa, and Waze. Additional functionality comes in the form of an integrated Wi-Fi hotspot that can support up to ten devices.

While the interior technology is impressive, it pales in comparison to the tech behind the Escape's safety systems. From features such as forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, lane-departure warning with lane-keep assist, to post-collision braking and adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go functionality, the Escape is positively brimming with devices designed to keep you and yours safe from harm.

All in all, this latest Ford Escape is head and shoulders above the rest of its competitors. From cutting-edge safety and entertainment technology to a powerful engine nestled in a small frame, the 2020 Escape is a sign of brilliant things to come.
