Performance Features & Engine Specs

With the 2021 Ford Escape, you'll have four different engines to choose from: two gasoline, and two Hybrid.

  • Standard 1.5L EcoBoost®
  • Available 2.0L EcoBoost®
  • Available 2.5L Hybrid
  • Available 2.5L Plug-In Hybrid

The standard gasoline engine is the 1.5L EcoBoost®, which puts out 181 horsepower and 190 lb-ft of torque capability. For a bit more oomph, the available turbocharged 2.0L EcoBoost® delivers a whopping 250 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque capability. Both engines are paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission, which delivers a smooth and easy-to-handle ride.

If you're looking for a trim with advanced fuel-efficiency, then our Hybrid engines are going to be more your speed; but don't worry, they don't sacrifice when it comes to performance. Both Hybrid engines deliver 165 horsepower and 155 lb-ft of torque capability.

A front-wheel drivetrain comes standard, but for advanced stability and traction control, be sure to ask about the available all-wheel drive system.

Innovative Safety Features

Every 2021 Escape is going to come equipped with the Ford Co-Pilot360™ system, which includes a plethora of advanced driver-assistant safety features designed to act as your partner and second set of eyes on the road ahead.

  • Standard Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking

This feature will help you mitigate or avoid collisions by monitoring the vehicles traveling ahead of you and warning you if it senses an impending collision. It will also automatically engage the brakes in the event of an emergency.

  • Standard Lane-Keeping System

You'll stay securely in the center of your lane thanks to this feature. It will monitor the road markings and alert you if it senses you drifting, while also applying gentle steering corrections.

  • Standard BLIS® with Cross-Traffic Alert

This feature helps you switch lanes and back out of tight parking spots and driveways with confidence. It watches out for the blind spots at your sides and rear, and warns you if a vehicle is entering them as you try to merge or reverse.
