2021 Escape Engine Specs & Performance

2020 Ford Escape TowingThe previous year’s model brought some new and exciting engine options into the fold. The standard 1.5L EcoBoost® 3-cylinder engine generated 181 horsepower and 190 lb-ft of toque. The available 2.0L EcoBoost® 4-cylinder pushed forward with 250 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. The previous Escape also introduce the 2.5L Atkinson-Cycle 4-cylinder Hybrid engine, which when combined with the electric motor, was able to generate 200 total system horsepower.

For the 2021 Ford Escape, we’re expecting to see similar engine options. However, there could be some retooling to make these engines propel forward with their respective outputs.

In-Cabin Technology Features

We’re expecting the 2021 Escape to pave the way to the future with its in-cabin features, technology, and systems. Since Ford unveiled the new SYNC® 4 system, we wouldn’t be too surprised to see this impressive touchscreen make its way to the Escape cabin.

This screen is an 8-inch high-resolution touchscreen that gives you direct access to your media options and vehicle systems. Of course, this system is also available with the large and intuitive 15.5-inch touchscreen that provides more on the display, as well as several menu options to help you tailor your experience.

The 2021 Escape will also include the Ford Co-Pilot360™ suite of driver-assisting technology features. These features use exterior-mounted sensors to measure the speed of the Escape, your rate of approach to the vehicle ahead, and your position on the road. These sensors will activate specific features when an issue or emergency arises.

These features include:

  • Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking
  • Lane-Keeping System
  • BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) wit Cross-Traffic Alert
