Ford Escape Hybrid: MPG, Trim Levels, & Performance
The 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid front-wheel drive models deliver an impressive EPA-estimated 44 city/37 highway MPG, so you can travel from Point A to Point B stop-free. It comes in different trim levels, including:
- SE Sport Hybrid
- SE Plug-In Hybrid
- SEL Plug-In Hybrid
- Titanium Hybrid
- Titanium Plug-In Hybrid
While they achieve the same fuel economy, each trim level offers a distinct combination of other features and amenities.
Hybrid vs Plug-In Hybrid
A hybrid car is a 100% gasoline-fueled vehicle that receives some additional help from an electric motor. Plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEV) are more like electric vehicles. Although they’re also fueled by gasoline, they have much larger batteries and can be charged using an external power source. The Ford Escape comes with a standard Hybrid 2.5L Atkinson-Cycle under the hood.
All-Wheel Drive (AWD) Disconnect is an available option that disconnects the front wheels when all-wheel drive is no longer needed. The front wheels then propel the crossover on their own, reducing overall drag and the energy output required.
2020 Ford Escape Hybrid: Interior & Comfort
Inside, Escape Hybrid models feature a standard 10-way power driver’s seat that lets you find your sweet spot for optimal comfort. Available leather-trimmed front bucket seats look stylish and feel like your own personal throne on the road.
Another exciting upgrade option in the 2020 Ford Escape is the expansive Panoramic Vista Roof®. Whether open wide to allow a flow of fresh air in, or closed, ample amounts of natural light will fill the cabin.
Ford Escape Hybrid: Technology & Safety Features
Technology in the 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid models serves two purposes: entertainment and driver assistance. The SYNC® 3 infotainment system displays your smartphone apps for seamless connectivity on the go. When the moment calls for music, an optional 10-speaker B&O™ Sound System by Bang & Olufsen immerses you in the melodies of your carefully curated playlists.
Another important aspect of technology in this SUV is active safety. 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid models come standard with a suite of Ford Co-Pilot360™ driver-assist systems, including:
- Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking: If it detects a potential collision, a warning message will appear & automatic braking will engage if needed.
- BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert: Alerts you through visual cues if another driver is in your blind spot or something appears behind you while backing up.
- Lane-Keeping System: Activates an alarm if you swerve out of marked lines & provides wheel pressure to help guide you back.
The available Active Park Assist 2.0 system takes driver assistance up a notch. Once you put your 2020 Escape Hybrid into neutral, release the brake, and hold down the Active Park Assist button, you’re free to sit back and relax while this intelligent system handles the rest.
