2021 Ford Escape Performance & Fuel Economy
Sometimes, you want to feel like you’re building your own car. The 2021 Ford Escape offers two different hybrid options, four different engines, front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, several color options, and safety features you didn’t even know existed.
If hybrid isn’t your thing, the Escape offers two gasoline engines. The standard 1.5L EcoBoost® engine with Auto Start-Stop Technology is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The Auto Start-Stop Technology can help lower fuel consumption and emissions during city driving by shutting the engine off when you come to a stop and then seamlessly restarting the engine when you step on the accelerator or when your foot leaves the brake pedal.
The available 2.0L EcoBoost engine comes with Auto Start-Stop Technology and SelectShift®. The eight-speed transmission offers the convenience of an automatic or the sporty feel of a manual. When equipped with the 2.0L EcoBoost Class II Trailer Tow Package, you can tow a maximum capacity of 3,500 lbs.
2021 Ford Escape Hybrid
The Hybrid 2.5L I-4 Atkinson-cycle powertrain features an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission (eCVT) and an 88 kW electric motor. With an EPA-estimated rating of 41 combined mpg, the 2021 Escape Hybrid with FWD has a range of 582 miles. Also, the liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery has been smartly placed outside of the vehicle below the floor of the second-row seats rather than taking up a valuable portion of the available cargo space. It also measures less than one-third the size of the old Escape Hybrid battery.
Cold Weather Package
For the 2021 model year, the Ford Escape received a new package called the “Cold Weather Package.” This includes electronic automatic temperature control with rear air duct, heated front-row seats, remote start system, heated and premium steering wheel, and heated side-view mirrors.
2021 Ford Escape Interior Features
The 2021 Ford Escape was designed with your comfort and convenience in mind. Besides the ample amount of cargo space and best-in-class legroom, the Escape can also help you park, stay informed, and even open up when you have your hands full.
You need your SUV to be convenient and versatile when you’re always on the go. That’s why the Escape was designed with second-row 60/40 split-fold seats with a sliding feature that allows for either more cargo space or best-in-class second-row legroom with over 40 inches of personal space.
A Seismic Shift in Gear Shifting
The Rotary Gear Shift Dial in the 2021 Escape takes up less room than a traditional gear shift lever. This design allows for more conveniently arranged cupholders, smart storage options, improved bin size, and a USB port right where you need it.
Parking At The Push of A Button
Coming standard on the Escape Titanium, the available Active Park Assist 2.0 with Reverse Parking Aid and Front Parking Aid makes parallel or perpendicular parking as easy as pushing a button. Once the feature is engaged, the system will automatically detect an appropriate parking spot, prompt you to come to a complete stop, shift to Neutral, release the brake pedal, and hold down the Active Park Assist button as the vehicle does the rest. The system controls all steering, shifting, braking, and accelerating.
Hands-Free is The Way to Be
Thanks to the available hands-free foot-activated liftgate, you won’t be stuck putting your cargo down on the ground and digging around for your keys anymore. With the Intelligent Access key fob in your pocket or purse, just kick your foot under the bumper and the liftgate magically opens. You also have the ability to adjust the height, which can be helpful for lower overhangs.
