The 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid offers an EPA-estimated 41 mpg combined fuel economy rating on its front-wheel-drive model, with 37 mpg on the highway and 44 mpg in the city.
The front-wheel-drive Escape Hybrid also has an EPA-estimated range of 582 miles per tank, according to Ford. Other models in the new escape line, whether hybrid-powered or equipped with EcoBoost technology, have an EPA-estimated range of roughly 400 miles per tank.
Also, when outfitted with available all-wheel drive, the Escape Hybrid has an EPA-estimated 43 mpg city and 40 mpg combined with an EPA-estimated 568 miles of range. Like the front-wheel-drive Escape, the all-wheel-drive model has an EPA-estimated 37 mpg on the highway.
The 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid includes a new EV coach feature included in the 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, standard on SE Sport and Titanium trim levels. EV coach lets drivers know when they’re using electric or hybrid power – allowing them to adjust their driving style to meet their power needs. In addition, eco mode, one of five standard selectable drive modes, helps conserve fuel.
The all-new Escape Hybrid packages its liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery below the second-row seats for increase space in the cargo area.
The new Ford Escape, built at Louisville Assembly Plant, is on sale now.
