Redesigned just last year, the 2021 Ford Escape benefits from roomy second-row seats, a swelling package of standard active-safety features, and a diverse selection of optional powertrains that includes hybrid variants. Gas-powered Escapes are motivated by either a 181-horsepower, 1.5-liter EcoBoost® 3-cylinder engine or a zesty 250-horsepower, 2.0-liter EcoBoost® 4-cylinder engine. The Escape Hybrid delivers up to 41 mpg combined, while the plug-in hybrid doles out an impressive 37 miles of EV range.
An 8-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay® is standard on all trims, as is Ford’s Co-Pilot 360 bundle of driver assists. The suite includes automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, a blind-spot detection system, lane-keeping assist, and automatic high-beam headlights. The 2021 Ford Escape is available in trim levels S, SE, SE Hybrid, SE Plug-In Hybrid, SEL, SEL Hybrid, SEL Plug-In Hybrid, Titanium, and Titanium Plug-In Hybrid—and the list of features only become more outlandish as you move up the lineup!
