2020 Ford Escape: First Impressions Review: Redefining the compact SUV

2020 Ford Escape raises the bar for what we expect from a compact SUV, combining an elegant sleeker style with a spacious interior with an impressive legroom in the second row and cargo space. Once you combine this with great technology as synchronization 3 and a 4G LTE connection copilot’s Ford 360 and an optional 12.3-inch digital cluster it is clear that Ford is rewriting the rules of the compact SUV.

entirely new Ford Escape 2020 is a dramatic change from the previous model and is able to compete with CR-V, CX-5, and Chevy Equinox. To add perspective to our review 2020 Ford Escape, I usually drive and ride in the passenger seat and the back seat of a 2014 Ford Escape.

The 2020 Ford Escape brings a smaller and lower roofline and a striking grille.

The escape or titanium exhaust are the models to buy, with additional features more than make up for the increased price of base model. 2020 Ford Escape price is;

S: $ 24,885
SE: $ 27,095
He Hybrid Sport: $ 28.255
SEL: $ 29,255

The two biggest changes in the 2020 Escape are stylish and cabin space. Ford says that the Ford GT inspiration to the lower front, and the Mustang for the new grid but will be visible signs of Porsche in style too. The new line of smaller and lower ceiling gives the escape of a major face and really modernized appearance. While the vehicle is smaller on the outside, there is a surprising amount of space inside.

Ford new interior design offers up a lot of space.

You will find a spacious cabin advance with a spacious feel thanks to the new line shifter. The front seats are comfortable and soft touch materials there throughout the cabin. I really like the diamond shape at the gates of Titanium model I tried, and I would rather see a continuation of that pattern for the dashboard rather than faux wood trim, but that’s a personal preference style. The exhaust ditches wood for an adjustment elegant silver. The buttons are easily accessible and there are a lot of small storage areas in the center console, doors and a small cubicle in the middle that the option of a wireless charger to start next year can. Unventilated in the Titanium model seats lost.

If you’re like me, you will escape transport friends and other adults in the back seat, and this is where shines the Escape 2020. Even with the line of the lower roof, headroom, hip room and shoulder in the back seat it is improved from the outgoing model. There is also much more legroom in the back seat, rather than the Chevy Suburban according to Ford. In fact, this second row offered plenty of space for knees and deep openings below the front row gave me room to stretch out. The seat is in a slider, allowing six inches of travel to maximize space for passengers or freight.

While we are looking in the back seat, Ford packets in my essentials for a livable backseat. There grids for the rear seat, so passengers can stay comfortable and there are two USB ports on the rear seat (Type C and one Type A), so that passengers can charge. Trailer outside seats are comfortable for an adult passenger, also good free space. There is a folding center console the back seat with two cup holders. The 2020 Escape offers more rear seat space than the outgoing model. Combine this with an available panoramic sunroof and ends with a second row that is so attractive to sit in the front like.

Cargo space is improved with 37.5 cubic feet of space when the seat moves forward position. This maximizes storage, while allowing room for passengers. It can easily fit four golf bags in the back of the Escape, Ford showed six bags or a big box pet. If you need more storage capacity, the seats are folded so that it can easily slip into long objects.

I tried the 2020 Escape 2.0L engine with AWD. Ford also offers a 1.5L FWD and AWD, a hybrid 2.5-liter hybrid engine option plug-in. The 2020 Escape handles well and the ride quality is quite good, probably partly due to the lower weight and the new reading isolated subframe. Acceleration with the 2.0L is good with what we to highway speed with ease and provide enough encouragement to pass slower traffic.

While through twisting, narrow rounds driving around the small SUV Louisville was easy to control and in Sport mode, steering is gained a little weight. The 8-speed automatic transmission shifted well and performed as expected in both normal and sport modes. The interior is relatively quiet, and it’s easy to have a conversation or enjoy the radio.

A 1.5L engine EcoBoost properly equipped, the Escape 2020 is rated to tow 2.000 lbs. The 2.0L is rated to tow up to 3500 pounds.
