2020 Ford Escape Hybrid Review

  • Available hybrid powertrain that gets around 40 mpg
  • Roomy and comfortable seating
  • Smooth ride quality
  • Easy-to-use controls
  • Cargo space falls short of its rivals
  • Climate system doesn't make enough airflow on hot days
  • The Ford Escape is fully redesigned
  • Hybrid version is back after a prolonged absence
  • Improved power and acceleration
  • Kicks off the fourth Escape generation

Ford has redesigned its Escape small SUV for 2020, and along with the redesign comes the new Escape Hybrid. Just like the regular Escape, the Hybrid is a sensible and practical vehicle that can do just about anything you need it to. The difference is that you get about 40 mpg in combined city/highway driving, which is a significant improvement over the regular Escape.

A revamped exterior design gives the Escape a sportier look for 2020, and there's a roomier interior. The rear seat, in particular, has plenty of legroom, which is great for adults or parents looking to install a bulky child safety seat. Other highlights of the new Escape include an easy-to-use infotainment touchscreen and plenty of advanced driver safety features. This new Escape Hybrid primarily competes against the Honda CR-V Hybrid and Toyota RAV4 Hybrid.

  • EdmundsEdmunds' Expert Rating
    Credit to Ford for bringing back the Escape Hybrid. It's one of just a few small SUVs with an available hybrid powertrain. Pleasingly, the Hybrid sacrifices little for its improved fuel economy. It has excellent tech, a roomy cabin, and a smooth and easy-to-drive demeanor.

Which Escape does Edmunds recommend?

The Escape offers a decent set of standard features on each trim level and a host of available options. The latter, however, can add up to an eye-popping price for a small SUV. The SEL trim is a good way to keep things in check. It comes with all of the lower trim features (power-adjustable driver's seat, Sync 3 infotainment) and adds other desirable items such as a hands-free liftgate, roof rails, rear parking sensors and a heated steering wheel.

Ford Escape models

Unlike the standard Ford Escape, the Escape Hybrid is available in just two trim levels: SE Sport Hybrid and Titanium Hybrid. Both are powered by a four-cylinder engine paired to a hybrid system and a continuously variable transmission. Total system output is 200 horsepower. Front-wheel drive is standard on both trims, and all-wheel drive is optional. 

SE Sport
The SE Sport comes fairly well equipped, starting you with:

  • 17-inch wheels
  • LED lighting
  • Power-adjustable driver's seat
  • Heated front seats
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • Digital gauge cluster display
  • 8-inch touchscreen
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration
  • Keyless entry with push-button start
  • Automatic climate control

All Escapes also come with these advanced safety features:

  • Blind-spot monitor (alerts you if a vehicle in the next lane over is in your blind spot)
  • Lane keeping assist (steers the car back into its lane if it begins to drift over the lane marker)
  • Forward collision mitigation (warns you of an impending collision and applies the brakes in certain scenarios)

This trim includes or replaces everything that's available on the SE Sport, including:

  • 19-inch wheels
  • Power liftgate
  • Dual-zone climate control system
  • Leather upholstery
  • Heated steering wheel
  • Power-adjustable front passenger seat
  • 10-speaker B&O audio system
  • Wireless charging pad
  • Adaptive cruise control (adjusts speed to maintain a constant distance between the vehicle and the car in front)

Some of the Titanium's extra features, such as the power liftgate and adaptive cruise control, are optional on the SE Sport.

5/5 stars, I was impressed...so I bought one.
Darlene and Marty (AKA Darty),
Titanium 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid EVT)
In the past few years I had a 2010 Escape hybrid and a 2019 Escape (turbo) as work vehicles. I rated them as 'just ok' but have to say the 2010 was doing very well for a nine year old vehicle. I test drove the 2020 Escape Titanium hybrid and wrote up a full price offer the next day. I had already driven most of the other hybrids that were available including the Rav4 which became my second choice. I am very impressed with all aspects of the 2020 Titanium. I love the new body style. The Rav4, Honda CRV, and Mitsubitsi were downright boring to look at in comparison. The ride and comfort of the Escape was notably better than the Rav4. If you test drive a hybrid Rav4 the first thing you may notice is that when you come to a stop it makes an annoying electric motor noise [like a siren] that actually startled my wife the first few times it made the noise while she drove. It is that loud. The centre arm rest was found to be uncomfortably high in the Rav 4 and the interior and displays were sort of disappointing. Additionally, the truck like front end treatment on the Rav4 simply does not do it for me. The Escape reminds me of European styled cars like Porsche or Jaguar. I find the lane centering and stop and go traffic self driving features spooky and will take a while to get used to having a car drive itself in stop and go traffic. This Escape is a very good car and really, the only thing I don't like much is the plasticy wood grain treatment in the dash inserts and door panels. I like the aluminum inserts that are installed on the lower trim models better. Anyone want to trade for some wood grain? Gas mileage is fantastic! We started a small trip with about 700 kilometres showing as range till empty. After driving for several hours, with several stops, in the country on winding roads we actually had more kilometres of range showing at the end of the trip. Readouts indicated that battery power accounted for about 15% of our motive force. I recommend giving this car a long look before considering other small SUV's.
4/5 stars, SE Sport Hybrid - The best 2020 Escape
SE Sport 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid EVT)
Wife and I each test-drove the SEL, SE Hybrid, and Titanium Hybrid. We drove them on both a sunny day and a rainy day. The handling, acceleration, and braking impressed us. The Titanium trim was beyond our price range. I was trading in my 2006 Ford Escape Hybrid; so, I was very interested in the new hybrid model. I prefer a 4-cylinder over a three. So, we decided on the SE Sport Hybrid trim. We like the host of safety features, the myriad of information displays, the Sync3 system, and the large and high entertainment screen. I really like the dial-transmission and digital displays. The controls are mostly laid out well. Single climate zone. Heat works well; defrosters work well. Fan speeds are a bit too low. The hybrid operation is very seamless and quiet. The gas engine emits a bit of a growl when you push it. I’m averaging the advertised 40mpg overall, and have frequently exceeded that figure on trips of 13 to 20 miles. The “sport” in SE is evident when one switches from Normal or Eco mode to Sport. The acceleration is great. This can be a fun car to drive if you want to sacrifice a bit of fuel economy. The front seats are comfortable (I’m average height). The rear seats can be moved forward or back, depending on where you need the space—passenger or cargo area. Cargo space meets our needs. I easily fit 16 50-pound bags of heating pellets in the cargo area with the seats down. Our dealer actually told us not to buy a remote starter; said to use the Ford App; saved us several hundred bucks. One USB-C slot and one USB; could use more. Model comes with Apple CarPlay and the Android equivalent. Even has a wifi hotspot. Other reviews mention how the model comes with a tire inflation kit instead of a spare tire. I went to a tire store and bought a tire and rim, which went into the rear 12-volt battery compartment. The added weight doesn’t seem to have affected my mpg. We agree with multiple reviewers how the interior plastics look cheap, but that “concern?” was way down our list. Our priorities were cargo space and mpg and price. The SE Sport Hybrid hot the sweet spot for us. Update - September 2020: Here we are nine months later. So, how do we feel about the car, now? Great. People still remark on the styling and color. We average 40mpg overall. I enjoy driving it for long distances and my wife enjoys being a passenger. In other words, the seats are very good. No mechanical problems. We still are very happy with our choice. Update March 2021: We’ve had the car for over a year and a quarter; driven around 6700 miles. We use it mostly for longer in-state trips. No problems to report. We are still very happy with the car. Update June 2021: Drove approx 320 miles from Boston area to Mount Desert Island in Maine. MPG driving there was around 42. We drove approx 137 miles around the island over three days; filled up just before driving home—-2.2 gallons! On way home, our mpg was approx 48! No problems; after a year and a half, very happy.
5/5 stars, Lots of Value!
SE Sport 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid EVT)
I cross shopped a RAV4 Hybrid, and a Mazda CX-5. I left the Toyota dealership impressed with the RAV4 Interior but disappointed by the handling, drivetrain and truck-like demeanor. Plus, the Toyota was expensive! With the Escape, I guess it was love at first drive. I immediately found the Escape's handling to be agile and very car-like. Steering felt precise and the eCVT felt and sounded great. I ended up leasing the SE Sport Hybrid trim, so I'm really enjoying the great mileage (up to 52 mpg on my route to work). I also love the clean European-like design of the exterior along with the attractive interior. Some professional reviewers seem stuck on some of the plastic parts featured on the interior, but I can't see the problem. The dash and front door panels are soft touch and have a great look and the amount of hard plastic wasn't that much different from my trade (2015 BMW 328i). Visibility and ride height are a plus for me, and the LCD display looks high-tech. I also cross-shopped the Mazda CX-5, but I'd have to stay with the smaller 2.5 engine to stay in my price range. I believe my final decision came down to the available hybrid powertrain on the escape. As for the CRV, there is something I don't like about the styling, inside and out, so I didn't even test drive the Honda (although I previously owned and loved the Gen3 CRV).
5/5 stars, 2020 Escape Hybrid Titanium AWD
Titanium 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid EVT)
We ended up purchasing this vehicle, and we do not regret it. After testing Toyota, Mazda, Honda we believe this was the best fit. The design is great and the interior with the digital instrument cluster makes for a great view of everything you need in front of you. The vehicle around the city averages around 48-55mpg, which is very impressive. Trunk space is very sufficient for the size of the vehicle. I enjoy the panoramic sunroof and the sliding rear seats. Overall, after 2 months, I am very happy with the purchase, comfort, ride quality and fuel economy. I have yet to see how it performs in snow.

2020 Ford Escape videos

ELANA SCHERR: I feel like I start all my Ford reviews by reminding you that Ford said it wasn't going to build cars anymore. So even though the 2020 Ford Escape looks like a car, it's not one. It's a crossover. It's raised up. Does the Ford Escape deliver on that promise to be both the best of both car and SUV? We're in Louisville, Kentucky, which is the birthplace of the Ford Escape-- really, it's built right around the corner from here-- to find out. Whether you're shopping for a car or an SUV or an SUV that looks like a car, we can help you at Edmunds.com. So the focus of the Ford Escape-- and no, that wasn't a Ford pun. Although it could have been because the Escape kind of looks car-like, and it's supposed to drive car-like. So they took weight out of it, and they lowered the center of gravity. It has a lower roof line than most SUVs. And all of that is supposed to make it more fun to drive on the road, more appealing to people who are coming out of sedans. One of our complaints about the previous Escape was that it didn't have a good ride quality. And it also didn't get very good fuel economy. Now, with the 2020 Escape, they're offering four different engine options, and two of them are hybrids. So you can pretty much guarantee that at least two of them are going to offer good fuel economy. As for ride quality, have they improved it? I'd say yes. It feels light, and the word nimble was thrown around a lot in the press release. But I'd say it's applicable. There are several different driving modes. And they do change the characteristics of the car. There's an eco mode, a normal mode, a sport mode, and then some snow and ice slippery modes. Now, most of the time what driving modes do is they adjust how the traction control works on the car. They can also affect how quick the throttle response is. In performance cars, the modes also affect the steering feel. And the Escape has that, too. However, I didn't notice it at first when I was doing this test drive because I had the lane centering on. Lane centering is one of those semi-autonomous new technologies that helps keep the car in the center of the lines so that you're not bouncing around inside the lane. I think that stuff is really great. But it does affect the driving feel of the car. And once I turned that lane centering off, I enjoyed driving this car a lot more. With it on, I felt like the steering was kind of light and twitchy. And with it off, it has felt much more dynamic. If you're economy minded, you'll probably go with the three cylinder 1.5 liter. And if you're really interested in the new technologies, you'll pick either the hybrid or the plug-in hybrid. For those of you who like a little performance oomph in your driving, you're going to want to go with the two liter turbo four cylinder EcoBoost, which is what is in this right now, backed by an 8 speed automatic transmission. It makes more than 235 horsepower, and with 200 pounds of weight savings in the 2020 Escape, you can really feel the difference. It's down-right zippy. If you've read up on the Escape at all, you might have seen a reference to high strength steel. And the reason why that matters is, if you have a stronger material, you can use less of it. And the way that that is shown in the Escape is in how thin these pillars are like, if they're smaller, if they're thinner, you can see around them more. They're not blocking as much of your view. So the visibility is great in the Escape. And that's something that they really tried to do, and they did it. I'm not going to give them all the props, though, because there are two visibility complaints that I have. One of which is that the angle of the windshield is super reflective of the dash. And the other is that this heads up display that they've got going on here with is kind of janky. There are definitely more sophisticated ways to do it that don't involve having a little piece of sunglass sticking up in your view all the time. Ford does a good job integrating new technology into their cars. And the Escape has a lot of examples of that. Know it's got emergency braking. It even has emergency evasive steering, which I am not going to test for you. But in theory, it would help me steer around an obstacle if I was about to hit something. I don't know if it's just because we're in the Titanium and it's got the big fancy wheels, but there is so much tire noise in here. When it comes to handling and breaking in the Escape, I haven't really thought about it that much on this drive, which, really, I think is exactly what you would want out of a small SUV. I mean, I didn't buy it to go racing. I bought it to go commuting with people in it and be comfortable. And it's all of those things. Ford's trying something different with the Escape. Instead of the straight lines and kind of like beefy stance of a traditional SUV, sort of smooth and friendly looking. In fact, the front end is downright cute. I don't have any problem with cute cars. I mean, Volkswagen bug, anybody? Yeah, they do great. If you're not into cute and you want a tougher looking SUV, Ford is making something called the-- what was it? Oh, yeah, Bronco. That's for you. This Escape is all about offering you options. So if it's cargo space you need, Ford has made it pretty easy to switch from people hauler to stuff carrier. There are some things I really like about the Escape's interior. There's a lot of space in here. I never feel cramped. The seats are comfortable. I think there's some nice trim options like this wood grain here. Ford did take some design risks in the Escape, which is not something that I normally associate with Ford. I usually feel like its interiors are very plain and conservative. But we've got a lot of different materials going here, different colors. I like all of that. There's this pattern here in the door which, honestly, kind of reminds me of cellulite. But hey, that's very body positive. And I'm down with that. The base Escape with the 1.5 liter three cylinder starts around $25,000. The Titanium here, with its optional all wheel drive and turbo charged two liter plus other goodies like leather trim and this panoramic sunroof, will set you back almost $40,000. So there's a huge price range across the different Escape trim levels. There are a lot of storage space for small things up here. But anyone who's ever had a big purse knows that that can also be a curse like the storage in the door is huge. And it goes all the way back in the door panel, which basically just means that you will lose like 17 pairs of sunglasses in this car. There's some trick stuff in the console. The cup holders light up, which is fancy. This car doesn't have it, but there is a charging pad coming. That's going to be good because currently the standard USB is all the way over here. And so then your cord runs across your whole business. Really, it's better guys if you can charge everything up here and then tuck the cord away. But an inductive charging pad will solve that. So when that's an option, you should get it, and everything will be nice and clean. Ford always does a good job in laying out the controls for infotainment and safety features. It wasn't hard to find things. The stuff that I wanted to turn off like the lane centering, which sucks and I hate it, I didn't have to go searching for very long, and it was easy. There are actual knobs for volume and radio tuning, no problem to set the temperature however you want it. And the air conditioning is very good, which has been great during this extremely hot and humid adventure in Kentucky. The Ford Escape is wider and longer than the previous model. But unlike most SUV redesigns, it's not taller. It's actually got a lower roof line. So I was a little worried about whether there would be enough headroom in here-- not for me, obviously. I'm like so short-- but for normal sized people. As it turns out, I think you could be tall and still fit in here fine. Plus, I have plenty of leg room here. But if I didn't, I could fix it with the sliding rear row. Not only is the sliding second row super fun and giving you more leg room, but if you don't need that, you can just slide them forward. And then you have more cargo room. So after spending a day in the Ford Escape, is it good to go or see you later? Hmm, a little bit of both. There are other small SUVs is that do luxury better. Mazda, I'm looking at you. But there are certainly a bunch that do it worse. And I really like the styling. It stands out. I like the idea that you can have a car and an SUV, have enough space, but not have like a big monster machine. It's going to be interesting to see where Ford takes the Escape. This is a brand new redesign, and I think they have big plans for this little SUV.

Ford Escape vs. Toyota RAV4

Both the Escape and the RAV4 have been redesigned for 2020, and neither is resting on old laurels. Presumably aimed at the same audience, both cars approach the compact SUV idea from different angles. The RAV4 is a stalwart winner for daily driving duties and, in the case of the new Adventure trim, a bit of mild off-road capability. The Escape is more about performance feel on the street and aims to drive more like a car than SUV. You can't miss with either.

Compare Ford Escape & Toyota RAV4 features 

Ford Escape vs. Honda CR-V

The Ford Escape has the edge on power. Its turbocharged 2.0-liter engine is strong, and Honda doesn't offer a comparable power upgrade. But otherwise the CR-V sets a high bar with its upscale interior design and exceptional utility, including more cargo space than even the new Escape. There's a reason it's earned Edmunds' top ranking among compact SUVs.

Compare Ford Escape & Honda CR-V features 

Ford Escape vs. Chevrolet Equinox

While not as freshly redesigned as the new Escape, the Equinox offers similar qualities: a smooth ride quality, a quiet cabin, a big back seat and respectable fuel economy. The Equinox is more enjoyable to drive, while the Escape has a more upscale cabin. Otherwise, these two SUVs are pretty comparable.

Should I lease or buy a 2020 Ford Escape?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
