The Redesigned 2020 Ford Escape Enters the New Decade a Smarter SUV

With the new decade of vehicles just around the corner, every auto manufacturer is going to be bringing their A-game to the table to provide the best vehicles the world has ever seen. With so much competition surrounding the SUV segment, the Ford Escape was a primary focus, and by all indications, the 2020 Escape is going to make a big impact for drivers in Los Angeles.

As part of its all-new redesign for 2020, the Ford Escape brings an all-new design that looks sportier than previous models. However, its updated visual look is more than just aesthetics; there's a focus on optimizing the Escape's aerodynamics as well thanks to a sloped roofline, efficient underbody, and an optimized liftgate spoiler and strake.

Additionally, the 2020 Escape is more than 200 pounds lighter than the 2019 model thanks to an increased implementation of high-strength, lightweight steel.

The 2020 Ford Escape will come standard with a 1.5-liter EcoBoost engine that is projected to hit 180 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque that allows for up to 2,000 pounds of max towing when properly equipped. There is a more powerful EcoBoost engine in the form of a 2.0-liter motor that hits 250 horsepower and 275 pound-feet which can be equipped on the SEL and the Titanium trim levels and delivers an improved 3,500 pounds of max towing.

Hawthorne and Santa Monica drivers in search of a hybrid option can choose from either a 2.5-liter FHEV or 2.5-liter PHEV engine option, with the former projected to get 198 horsepower while the latter does 209 horsepower.

Across every version of the 2020 Ford Escape will be a selectable drive mode system where Inglewood and South Bay drivers can dynamically swap between normal, eco, sport, slippery, snow, and sand modes for enhanced handling. Several class-exclusive driver-assist technologies will also be available to add on, which include Active Park Assist 2.0 and Evasive Steering Assist.

The 2020 Ford Escape is currently due to arrive at Airport Marina Ford in Fall 2019.
