Escape From The Norm In A 2021 Ford Escape

September 29th, 2023 by

Stand Out From The SUV Crowd

Visit the Hawk Ford St. Charles dealership today and lay eyes on the all-new 2021 Ford Escape. Built to make a lasting impression and make driving fun again, you’ll get behind the wheel of the Escape and never let go. With two hybrid versions, six new packages to choose from, and four new colors, you’ll be able to hit the road in your own individual style. The best-in-class fuel economy, flexible cargo and passenger space, impressive towing, and standard and available tech for connectivity and confidence make the 2021 Ford Escape the perfect SUV.

The Power of Choice

Sometimes, you want to feel like you’re building your own car. The 2021 Ford Escape offers two different hybrid options to choose from, four different engines, front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, several new color options, and technology and safety features you didn’t even know existed.

Go 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.

Hit the Gas

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’ll be able to tow a maximum capacity of 3,500 lbs.

For When It’s Cold Outside

New this year, the Ford Escape offers the Cold Weather Package, which includes electronic automatic temperature control with rear air duct, heated front-row seats, remote start system, heated and premium wrapped steering wheel, and heated side-view mirrors.

Comfort From Head to Toe

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.

More Space

When you’re always on the go, you need your SUV to be both convenient and versatile. 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 Ford Escape takes up less room than a traditional gear shift lever. This design opens up space 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. All steering, shifting, braking, and accelerating are controlled by the system.

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.
