The 2021 Ford Escape: Excellence Rolling on Wheels

Are you shopping for a new SUV? Let us introduce you to the 2021 Ford Escape - the new crossover from Ford dominating the crossover segment in Richfield Springs, NY. The Ford Escape was first sold in 2001. The Ford Escape is still a buyer's favorite two decades later. The current generation went on sale just last year, so it is still fresh.

Nonetheless, Ford decided that an upgrade was necessary to keep the Ford Escape competitive in the densely populated compact SUV segment. This year, the 2021 Ford Escape will be available to New Hartford and Amsterdam, NY drivers with a spacious interior, excellent power options, and an engaging driving experience. You can get your very own new Ford Escape at Cooper Ford.

Performance and Efficiency

The 2021 Ford Escape will be available with four engine options, including a hybrid and a plug-in hybrid. For those looking for a dedicated daily driver, the standard engine should be an excellent one. It is a 1.5L turbocharged inline-3 making 180 hp and 190 lb-ft of torque. It provides enough power to make your daily commute, and it is very efficient. It comes with the cylinder deactivation system, and it gets a rating of 28/34 mpg from the EPA. However, if you are looking for some thrill in your driving, you can upgrade to the 2.0L turbocharged inline-4 engine.

It is the first optional engine and is good for 250 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque. This powertrain is offered with the standard 8-speed automatic unit, and the AWD drivetrain is standard. It is a peppy option and can get the new Escape to highway speeds in just 6 seconds. The third option will be the hybrid powertrain. The new Ford Escape gets an 88-kW electric motor paired to a 2.5L inline-4 engine to make a total of 200 hp and 155 lb-ft of torque. And being a hybrid, the powertrain is very efficient and gets a rating of 44/37 mpg. The final option you will have is the plug-in hybrid. It uses the same setup and gets the same output. However, as a PHEV, this powertrain gets a rating of 41 mpg/ 100 MPGe.

Interior Design

The 2021 Ford Escape features an attractive cabin. The interior has an excellent modern design, and there are plenty of soft-touch materials present. Despite the presence of some bits of plastic, the cabin design and quality of the new Escape are still magnificent. The Ford Escape is a two-row five-passenger crossover with lots of room for seating and storage. It comes with four doors that open wide and usher you into a roomy interior. You will have cloth upholstery as standard, but higher up, you get synthetic and genuine leather. You also have the option of adding heated front seats and a heated steering wheel. Both rows offer plenty of seating space. However, the second row also slides back to improve rear-seat legroom. The seats provided are large and comfortable, and you will enjoy riding in the new Ford Escape. You have anywhere between 37.5 and 65.4 cubic feet of space for storage, depending on your second row's position.

Technology and Safety

On the entry-level trim, you will have the 4.2-inch touchscreen and a gauge cluster. You will only have 1 USB port, Bluetooth, and a 6-speaker stereo. However, higher up the trim ladder, you get an 8-inch display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. You will also get more features such as Wi-Fi, satellite radio, navigation, and a 10-speaker B&O sound system. For safety, the new Ford Escape offers the following features: a rearview camera, blind-spot monitoring, lane-keeping assistance, a collision-prevention system, automatic high-beams, and rear cross-traffic detection.

Ford Escape Trim Levels 

One thing you may want to do when getting a new vehicle is customizing it. No one wants to feel like they have the same vehicle as everyone else in their neighborhood. Ford makes it easy, as they offer the Escape in four separate trim levels. 

The lineup starts at the S trim, which gives you the bare essentials in the car and lets you add what you feel in absolutely necessary. 

The SE gives you a more economic engine and the option to get Ford's Intelligent 4WD system. This system is great for the weather around Ilion. It also comes with an advanced infotainment system with Ford Sync 3 and a whole host of optional safety tech. 

Next up is the SEL which gives you a much more luxurious interior on top of the options that the SE gave you. You get a panoramic sunroof and a leather-wrapped gear shift know. The SEL also offers a standard power liftgate to help when your hands are full of groceries, and day time running lights that make the Escape look sleek and modern. 

The Titanium model gets another upgraded engine along with a whole host of luxuries. The 10 speaker Sony sound system will keep everyone in the Escape entertained and the suite of standard safety equipment will keep them all safe. You also get ambient lighting to set the mood on a long trip home at night and a universal garage door opener. There is an auto-dimming rearview mirror to keep your eyes unobstructed and 110V outlet to keep everyone in the Escape charged and connected. The front seats are trimmed in leather and the driver's seat has memory functions, so it is not a hassle if the Escape has multiple drivers. 

Power & Capabilities 

The Escape has three different engines to choose from. You get the 2.5L Inline 4-cylinder engine in the S model. This engine makes 168 horsepower while getting 21 mpg city and 29 mpg highway. It is a great dependable and efficient engine. 

The 1.5L turbocharged Ecoboost engine is found in the SE and the SEL. This engine makes 179 horsepower while also getting 23 mpg city and 30 mpg highway, thanks to its intelligent turbocharger. This engine provides a good mix of power and fuel efficiency. 

Finally, there is the 2.0L Ecoboost engine found in the Titanium, and it gets 22 mpg city and 29 mpg highway. This engine produces the most power at 246 horsepower. This engine utilizes a twin-scroll turbocharger to create power at all parts of the rev range.
