Serving Fort Mill, SC

Ford first introduced the Ford Escape in the year 2000 for the 2001 model year. The 2019 Ford Escape marks the end of the third generation of this model, meaning the 2020 Ford Escape will be completely redesigned and will mark the beginning of the fourth generation Ford Escape. The most notable changes between the 2019 and 2020 model year include the exterior/interior design, the return of the hybrid engine option, and predicted improvement in power and efficiency. These changes come immediately after US News ranked the 2019 Ford Escape sixth in its class.


The 2019 Ford Escape features three capable engine options. These engines include the standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine capable of producing up to 168 horsepower, the turbocharged 2.0 four-cylinder engine capable of producing up to 245 horsepower, and the 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that is capable of producing up to 179 horsepower. The standard engine averages 21 city and 29 highway miles per gallon. The 2.0-liter turbocharged engine averages 22 city and 29 highway miles per gallon. The 1.5-liter turbocharged engine is the most fuel-efficient engine option for the 2019 Ford Escape, and it averages roughly 23 city and 30 highway miles per gallon. The power and fuel-efficiency of the 2020 Ford Escape engine options have yet to be revealed; however one would assume that significant changes should be expected since the 2020 model year marks the start of a new generation Ford Escape.


The 2019 Ford Escape has an attractive exterior, with a well-designed interior that offers a variety of color schemes, materials, and amenities. The 2020 Ford Escape was designed to appear sportier and sleeker than its predecessor. Ford also elected to completely redesign an interior that some critics called “out of date.” The appeal surrounding the changes to the 2020 Ford Escape is undeniable.


The 2019 Ford Escape comes with a slim number of standard infotainment features including a 4.2-inch touchscreen, a USB port, and a small stereo system. Additional features include navigation, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and BlueTooth. The only standard safety features for the 2019 Ford Escape include a rearview camera and a MyKey system, which allows the owner to set customizable limitations to the features of the car based on who is driving the vehicle. Thankfully, Ford addressed the lack of features on the 2019 Ford Escape.
