Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2020 Ford Escape comes with front wheel drive, and all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 8-speed automatic, electrically variable-speed automatic.The Ford Escape is fully redesigned.Hybrid version is back after a prolonged absence.Improved power and acceleration.

Pros
Updated style and interior design
Powertrain options range from sporty performance to efficient hybrid
Sliding second-row seats improve passenger room and cargo utility
Sleek, new rear liftgate design compromises some cargo capacity

By: 
usnews.com

The Escape is fundamentally unchanged for 2018, but there are some tweaks to the lineup and to its standard-equipment offerings.The SEL comes standard with leather-trimmed seating, a power liftgate, heated exterior mirrors, an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and LED running lights.

Pros
Graceful turbocharged 2.0-liter engine,
smooth ride,
attractive and intuitive infotainment system.

Cons
Less rear-seat and cargo space than the class leaders,
turbo engines return mediocre fuel economy.

The 2020 Ford Escape was overdue for a redesign, but the new model trades style for powertrain choices.

Pros
Lots of engine choices
Clean interior design
Good standard safety gear

Cons
Light on cargo space
We’re waiting for mpg ratings
Bland styling

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Pros
Beautifully sculpted bodywork,
delightfully athletic and equally refined,
decidedly more premium than competitors.

Cons
Non-turbo engine needs more oomph,
can only tow up to 2000 pounds,
unremarkable cargo capacity.

By:

Pros
Classy cabin
Sporty ride
Lots of standard safety features
