Escape Has What It Takes to Stand Out in a Crowd

Excellent Fuel Economy Numbers No Matter Which Engine You Choose

One of the biggest strengths of the 2021 Ford Escape is in its fuel economy. Its base 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine gets a rock solid 28 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway when paired with the standard front-wheel drive. Upgrading to the more powerful 2.0-liter four-cylinder and pairing it with the available all-wheel drive still produces favorable results to the tune of a 23 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway fuel economy.

Two Engine Options to Choose From

The 2021 Ford Escape can be had with one of two different engine options. The standard variant is a 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine that gets a performance output of 181 horsepower and 190 pound-feet of torque. If that's not enough for you, upgrade to the available 2.0-liter four-cylinder (which comes standard on the Titanium trim level) to maximize your performance at 250 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque.


Excellent Available EPA-Estimated Range

*2.5L Hybrid FWD/CVT. Range calculation based on 14.2-gallon tank and EPA-estimated rating of 41 combined mpg. Actual mileage and range will vary. Plug-in Hybrid available spring 2021.


Plenty of Leg Room

*Based on the second-row seat in the most rearward position.


Max Horsepower

The available 2.0L EcoBoost® with Auto Start-Stop Technology has maximum horsepower of 250.* That's more available horsepower than Toyota RAV4, Honda CR-V and Nissan Rogue.

Powertrains and Hybrid Technology

The 2021 Escape has a choice of hybrid* or plug-in hybrid with a 2.5L iVCT Atkinson-cycle hybrid engine. A 1.5L EcoBoost® and the 2.0L EcoBoost with Auto Start-Stop Technology are the available gas engines.

*See a Ford EV-certified dealer for details. Plug-in Hybrid available spring 2021.

Amenities That Help Escape Stand Out

It's more than just good looks that make the 2021 Escape stand out in the crowd. There's also outstanding second-row leg room, an available premium sound system, the rotary gear shift dial and the fun of an available panoramic Vista Roof.®

Head-Up Display

Keep your eyes on the road. The available head-up display creates an image on a display screen in front of the driver on the windshield. This minimizes the distraction of having to look at the instrument panel. The head-up display keeps you informed with various driver-assist features that include Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go, Lane-Keeping System, Navigation, incoming calls and more.*

*Don't drive while distracted. See owner's manual for details and system limitations.
