I was invited to attend the reveal of the All New Ford Escape but as usual, all opinions are my own!
We were transported to the whole new world of the all new Ford Escape: Escapeville!
Check it all out:
Here are some of the things I love about the Ford Escape:
Best in class second row left room
Having a 6’7″ son, space is something I really value.
Basketball practice and giving his tall friends rides are always on my mind!
When I mentioned that to the Ford staff, they brought the Basketball Players from University of Michigan-Dearborn:
To prove that space is something I can count on, when talking about the new Ford Escape! Check it out!
How about the cargo space?
Love that it is lighter than previous models, but more spacious: it has the best of both worlds!
Selectable drive modes give people the option to go where they want :
You know how much I love to drive, right?
Love that the Ford Escape offers a drive mode for every road trip we ever planned!
I could already see our kayaks on top of it and the campground signs!
It made me get ready to Escape!
With a selectable drive mode system standard across the lineup, Escape makes it easy for Escape owners to create the ride experience they desire – or the one that conditions demand.
Modes are tailored for normal, eco, sport and slippery, plus snow and sand conditions.
Titanium models are available with an all-new heads-up display, a first-for-Ford in North America.
The feature that projects information onto a 6-inch screen, giving drivers easy access to important information such as vehicle speed without taking their eyes off the road.
Class-exclusive driver-assist technologies include available Active Park Assist 2.0 and Evasive Steering Assist.
Active Park Assist 2.0 allows the driver to park in a parallel or perpendicular spot with the touch of a button, without having to work the steering wheel, gear shifter, gas or brake pedal.
Evasive Steering Assist detects a slower-moving or stationary vehicle ahead and provides steering support that can assist the driver to avoid an imminent collision.
No compromise on fuel economy and performance:
New powertrains and transmission systems, a reduction in weight, improved aerodynamics and updated suspension system all contribute to one undeniable fact: this is the best-performing, most fun-to-drive Escape ever.
Gas engine-powered models as well as the standard hybrid are available with all-wheel drive.
EcoBoost-equipped models get a new quick-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission for smooth, responsive shifting, while every Escape receives an all-new suspension and improved isolation with a new isolated rear subframe.
“This new vehicle performs like no other Escape before,” said Jim Hughes, Escape chief program engineer. “It’s quick, it’s responsive and, in staying true to the standard set by three generations of Escapes before it, it’s a heck of a lot of fun to drive.”

Let’s Talk Connectivity & Sound:
FordPass ConnectTM is a standard feature that provides 4G LTE Wi-Fi for up to 10 mobile devices with compatible wireless subscription service.
FordPass Connect also gives drivers remote access to their Escape, allowing them to use their smartphone to lock, unlock, locate and start the vehicle, as well as monitor key vehicle diagnostics.
Drivers and passengers can keep compatible mobile devices charged with an available wireless charging pad in the front center console.
Also available are type A and type C USB charging ports as well as three 12-volt charging sockets.
An 8-inch touch screen – standard on SE models and above – shares information with the available 12.3-inch all-digital instrument cluster, which displays important vehicle information such as speedometer and fuel level.
It uses 3D animated graphics to indicate the drive mode.
Available SYNC® 3 is compatible with available features such as Apple CarPlayTM, Android AutoTM, Ford+Alexa and Waze navigation.
For music lovers, Escape offers an available 575-watt 10-speaker B&O Sound System by Bang & Olufsen.
I can hardly wait to drive the new redesigned 2020 Ford Escape!
