Engine and Power

The Ford Escape has always been known for providing tough turbocharged power with surprising acceleration. The base model features a 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine drawing out over 180 horsepower with either front- or all-wheel drive. You can upgrade to the 250-hp 2.0 liter and hit 60 mph in less than six seconds. Plus, both engines are rated at 27 mpg in the city, 33 on the highway. Two hybrid 221-hp models are also available, with fuel economy ratings up to 44 mpg in the city.

Comfort and Cargo

The Ford Escape has always prided itself on offering comfort in addition to power on the open road. Cloth seats are standard, with options to upgrade to faux or genuine leather. Upgrading your trim package will also give you a 8-inch touchscreen display with Ford's latest Sync 3 infotainment interface and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto capability. Whether it's a day at the beach or cruising up to Okeechobee for some camping and fishing, the 2021 Ford Escape is designed with outdoor fun in mind. All models feature 65.4 cubic feet of cargo space, enough to fit eight carry-on suitcases. With the back seat folded, you can bring 21.

Safety

In addition to all this, the Ford Escape is one of the safest vehicles on the road. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gave it a five-out-of-five rating and it was awarded a Top Safety Pick award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The Ford Escape provides a selection of safety features, including:

  • Standard forward-collision warning with automated emergency braking
