The new Escape model hits the market packed with exciting features and boasting two potent engines and a well-designed interior.

Drivers in Dickson City, Scranton, and Wilkes-Barre can study everything about the new Ford model with this comprehensive 2021 Ford Escape review from Gibbons Ford.

Escape Performance and Engine Options

The Escape offers a choice of turbocharged EcoBoost engines, beginning with a 1.5-liter three-cylinder as its entry-level option. This engine delivers 181 horsepower and 190 lb-ft of torque. The optional upgrade is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder that generates 250 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque, which is rated to tow up to 3,500 pounds.

Regardless of the engine you choose, you'll get an eight-speed automatic transmission that shuttles power to all four wheels or the front wheels. The Escape backs its power with light, accurate steering and strong brakes, as well as sharp handling that's perfect for back road cruising.

Escape Interior Design and Comfort

The Escape's expansive interior is one of its best features. The cloth seats have space for five people with an abundance of headroom and legroom. The rear seat moves about, giving you the option to expand the passenger area or the cargo area. All the seats are well cushioned and comfortable for long drives. Leather upholstery, heated seats, and a heated steering wheel are optional.

Depending on the rear-seat configuration, the Escape has a maximum of 37.5 cubic feet with the seats in use. When the seats are folded flat, the cargo capacity expands to 65.4 cubic feet. This is a competitive capacity for a crowded class. You can find plenty of cubbies and bins for small belongings, such as phones and keys.

Escape Features and Options

The Escape offers a variety of features for comfort and entertainment. You can choose the 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system powered by the intuitive SYNC® 3 interface, which is known for its easy-to-navigate menu options and responsive touch inputs. Knobs and buttons are used for redundant functions like climate control and sound volume. The system includes Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® compatibility, which connects to your phone for music, media, and texting or calling capability. Wireless device charging, navigation, satellite radio, and premium sound are available.

Several safety features are included for the Escape, such as a rear cross-traffic alert, a feature that alerts you to pedestrians or vehicles in your way when backing up. You'll also have blind-spot monitors, which alerts you if there's a vehicle in your blind spot. Optional upgrades include parallel and perpendicular parking guidance, parking sensors, a head-up display, and adaptive cruise control, a feature that maintains a safe distance on the highway by adjusting your speed automatically.
