2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E vs 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid
If we had to recommend any Escape model to compare with the Mustang Mach-E, it would be the Escape Titanium Plug-In Hybrid. It’s closer in starting price, similarly rich in features, and offers the same polished feel we see in the new Mach-E. See how these two electric-powered Ford variants match up in our comparison of the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E versus the 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid.

Advantages of the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E
As of right now, the Mustang Mach-E is the posterchild for what Ford has in store for its new generation of vehicles. A new “E-Latch” System lets you unlock the door with a simple touch, and inside you’re greeted by a SYNC® 4A infotainment system with a 15.5-inch touchscreen. There’s a 10.2-inch digital cluster display, 10-speaker B&O Sound System, Panoramic Fixed Glass roof, and Ford’s Co-Pilot360™ 2.0 safety suite, which includes the latest iteration of park-assist technologies – Active Park Assist 2.0.
The Escape Hybrid provides a similarly high-tech sanctuary with a refined leather-trimmed interior, crisp 10-speaker B&O Sound System, a windshield-projected head-up display, 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, and seven-color ambient lighting. Comfort coalesces with convenience as the Escape Titanium Plug-In Hybrid tops it off with Ford’s Co-Pilot360 Assist+ package and Active Park Assist 2.0.
But perhaps the most notable advantage of the 2021 Mustang Mach-E is not what it already has but what's to come. Ford’s Active Drive Assist feature is expected to launch as an over-the-air update on the Mustang Mach-E in the third quarter of 2021, meaning Mach-E drivers will be among the first to experience Ford’s own driver-assist software.
