2020 Ford Escape: 5 New Features You Need to Try on Your Test Drive

1000 × 666?
The 2020 Ford Escape might just have everything you've ever wanted in a compact SUV. Since Ford decided to eliminate most cars from its lineup aside from the Mustang, previous fans of the Focus might enjoy the practical upgrade to the new model Escape, since it's completely redesigned to combine the efficiency of a car with the practicality of a small SUV. The proof is in the test drive though, so here are five new Escape features you really should try out on your test drive.

1. Take a Ford Hybrid Model for a Spin

When you come to Bob Gillingham Ford, start off your vehicle shopping by test-driving a brand new 2020 Ford Escape Titanium Hybrid. With the hybrid, these efficient engines work in tandem with a battery to achieve budget-friendly gas mileage. The hybrid Escapes also features an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission (eCVT) for excellent low-end torque, so you don’t have to sacrifice power for savings at the gas pump.

2. Ford Co-Pilot 360 Technology

The new 2020 Ford Escape includes the most advanced suite of driver assistance technologies Ford has ever offered to help drivers confidently navigate the kamikaze rush hour traffic that takes place on most of Northeastern Ohio’s highways. The brand-new suite of driver assistance technologies includes:

  • A rearview camera to display what's behind you so you can reverse safely

  • Blind spot information system with cross traffic alert, which helps warn drivers of other vehicles in their blind spot

  • Lane keeping system, which helps your vehicle stay inside its lane on the highway or other multiple lane roads

  • Automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, which helps automatically apply vehicle brakes to help avoid slower vehicles in front of you as well as crossing pedestrians

3. New Tech All-Wheel Drive Disconnect

If you're a longtime Ohio resident, you know that winters can get pretty harsh around here. That's why the 2020 Escape is equipped with all-wheel drive for safely traversing roads during less than ideal conditions, including heavy rain, snow and ice. And on sunny spring days when AWD isn't needed, the 2020 Escape lets you disconnect the rear drivetrain temporarily, allowing the front wheels to propel the vehicle. This innovative feature is something you can try on your test drive — you may notice how this option reduces drag and the overall energy demands of the engine and transmission.

4. Best in Heads-Up Display

The new 2020 Ford Escape features an available heads-up display — when you go for your test drive, make sure to ask for a vehicle that's equipped with one. This feature displays a clear image on the windshield, minimizing the distraction of having to look at the dashboard to monitor your speed (you know, for those speed traps on 77). The heads-up display also keeps you informed of various driver assist safety features. While this seems like a minor convenience, it quickly becomes indispensable for many owners. 

5. An SUV Equipped With SYNC 3

Available on certain models of the 2020 Escape, try using SYNC 3 with the included touchscreen on your dashboard. It includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, so you can integrate your smartphone's features right in your vehicle. SYNC 3's enhanced voice recognition lets you access features while keeping your eyes on the road. Try it on your test drive — ask it to play one of your favorite songs or navigate you back to the dealership.
