Defining the New Ford Escape

Is it a crossover? Maybe it's an SUV. The new Ford Escape design has consumers on the edge of their seats. This compact sport utility vehicle offers a utilitarian design in a small package that makes it desirable and functional to an array of consumers. With a slightly rounded front and elongated body, the new Ford Escape is different from any other SUVs in its class allowing it to stand out among competitors.

The Ford Escape was introduced to this automaker's lineup in 2000 as a compact crossover and has since seen four generational updates. In that time, the Ford Escape has seen a variety of improvements from design to performance to technology and safety.

Sandwiched between the smaller Ford models, like the EcoSport and Edge, and larger Ford models, like the Expedition and Explorer, the Ford Escape is a median-size vehicle that features a range of amenities contained in all Ford SUVs. It is considerations like this that make the Ford Escape a functional vehicle for a variety of consumers of various lifestyles.

All-Weather Performance That Speaks to Knoxville Area Consumers

The Ford Escape was originally designed as a small crossover that offered a bit more ability than a sedan but was not as rugged as a full-sized SUV. It catered to those who desired a bit of adventure in life with a vehicle that was also diverse enough to function as a daily commuter. The Ford Escape has evolved from a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine in its early years to a current 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder in its fourth generation.

An additional 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine has been added in for higher trim levels. It was also accompanied by two hybrid options in the 2020 model lineup. Featuring a 2.5-liter Atkinson cycle engine and a plug-in hybrid, the Escape really diversified its offerings to meet the requests of a large consumer group.

While the base 1.5-liter engine is capable of producing up to 180 horsepower, the 2.5-liter hybrid gives it a run for its money with a horsepower production of 198. Furthermore, the plug-in hybrid is expected to generate up to 208 horsepower while boasting the ability to drive up to 30 miles on a single electric charge.

With towing capabilities that range from 1,500 pounds to 3,500 pounds, the Ford Escape is ready to go where its drivers take it. The power to haul an immense amount of cargo, additional passengers, or tow a boat or trailer makes the Escape a versatile choice for frequent travel and weekend adventures.

An Interior That Exudes Comfort and Function

In previous years, the Ford Escape was an introductory vehicle in the hybrid realm. since then, this SUV has evolved rapidly involving new elements of interior, exterior, and design concepts. This compact SUV offers the comfort, versatility and functionality necessary to create a comfortable atmosphere and environment for family travel and daily commutes to work or school.

The Ford Escape features many stylish and practical aspects, such as ambient lighting, sporty trims, and ample rear cargo space. Pigeon Forge shoppers can expect a complete front dash re-design that is enveloped with an infotainment screen that interacts with MyFord Touch, remote engine start, and an impressive Sony sound system.

Generations of Exterior Developments

Once produced with a more elongated body and a lower stance, the Ford Escape has been upgraded to a more block-like structure with curved edges and a sleek appearance. Steel wheels were upgraded to an aluminum version in the early 2000s and have maintained their status ever since. Select trims of the new Escape are available with edgy 19-inch machined-face aluminum wheels with dark tarnished-painted pockets to turn heads all over Seymour, TN.

Contemporary models of the new Ford Escape have a longer and wider base than previous iterations of this crossover SUV. This has provided the Escape with a look like never before. A sleeker look that has been obtained through the use of sheet metal on the body has produced better curvature and a more modern appearance overall.
