2021 Ford Escape: Personalized Driving Experiences
The Ford Escape also comes standard with selectable drive modes that make it easy to tailor its performance depending on your mood or the road conditions ahead. The available drive modes include Normal as well as the following:
- Deep Snow/Sand
The 2021 Ford Escape plug-in hybrid configuration also features four distinct EV modes that give you the power to choose how you want to use the electric power components on every drive. With Auto EV mode turned on, the 2021 Ford Escape switches between gas and electric power automatically.
When you switch over to the EV Now mode, the Ford Escape will use only electric power. The EV Later mode plans ahead by preserving plug-in energy now so you can switch it on at another time. Finally, the EV Charge mode continues to charge the battery while you drive and generates electric-only miles you can use later.
With the available 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, you’ll stay effortlessly connected to your Ford Escape because unique 3D animations appear based on the drive mode you select.
Adaptable Performance for the Road Ahead
Along with that, the 2021 Ford Escape offers an optional All-Wheel Drive (AWD) Disconnect. This system saves fuel by disabling the rear driveline when AWD is no longer needed. If it detects slick conditions or challenging terrain, it switches back to All-Wheel Drive automatically to ensure maximum traction.
An Interior With Room for Passengers & Gear
In addition to offering comfortable seating for up to five people in a total passenger volume of up to 104 cubic feet, the Ford Escape offers:
- Headroom (first/second row): 40 inches/39.3 inches
- Hip Room (first/second row): 55.2 inches/53.3 inches
- Shoulder Room (first/second row): 57.6 inches/56 inches
- Legroom (first/second row): 42.4 inches/40.7 inches
The 2021 Ford Escape also makes it easy to transport your favorite outdoor equipment. Its second-row sliding seats with 60/40 split-fold down capability let you instantly configure the cabin to fit passengers, cargo, or both.
Want to bring your 4-legged friend on your next family vacation? Slide the rear seats all the way forward to reveal 37.5 cubic feet of room behind them. Whenever you need to maximize storage room, fold down the rear seats to reveal 65.4 cubic feet of cargo space.
To help you take advantage of its configurable cargo area, this versatile SUV also offers features that streamline the packing and unpacking process. With the available hands-free, foot-activated liftgate, you can approach the trunk with your hands full. Simply kick your foot underneath the rear bumper and step aside while it lifts automatically.
The 2021 Ford Escape offers available roof rack side rails and roof rack crossbars, too, so you can load up the top with more recreational gear or luggage.
