The Ford Escape’s wide array of impressive powertrain choices, including a hybrid, and respectable dynamics brings a touch of fun to a boring segment. There’s tons of space throughout the vehicle, but it suffers from a cheap interior.

The Ford Escape is completely new for 2020 and takes a huge step forward in the competitive compact crossover market with a new platform, styling and powertrains. It’s slightly bigger than the Escape it replaces but drives more like a car than ever before. That means it provides the elevated feel and seating position of a crossover, but driving dynamics that are a bit more plucky and entertaining than many other similarly sized utes.

At the same time, the 2020 Escape offers more passenger space, improved comfort and extra technology, allowing it to better align with top competitors. It's also more efficient, especially the Escape Hybrid, which returns to the line-up after taking a generation off. It's well worth a test drive.

Ford offers the 2020 Escape with three powertrain choices. The base engine on S, SE, and SEL models is a 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder that makes 180 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque. The EPA rates this engine at 27 city, 33 highway, and 30 combined with standard front-wheel drive or 26/31/28 with optional all-wheel drive.

The Escape SE Sport Hybrid and Titanium offer a 2.5-liter four-cylinder and electric motor combo that produces 198 horsepower and 153 pound-feet of torque. With EPA ratings of 44 mpg city, 37 highway and 41 combined, the hybrid is by far the most efficient Escape currently on the market. A plug-in hybrid is expected to hit dealerships soon.

Exclusive to the Titanium trim level is an optional 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that increases max output to 250 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque on 93 octane fuel, providing for a quoted 0-60 mph time of 7.4 seconds. All-wheel-drive is standard with this engine and fuel economy stands at 23/31/26.
