2021 Ford Escape

What's New For the 2021 Ford Escape?

Since the Ford Escape was recently redesigned to start the compact crossover's fourth production cycle, there are no significant changes for the 2021 model year. However, for 2021, the Ford Escape includes adaptive cruise control and traffic sign recognition in the optional Co-Pilot 360 Plus package. Additionally, various packages get some upgrades such as hands-free power liftgate and driver's seat memory setting in the Technology package; and keyless entry keypad and LED exterior lights in the Convenience package.

2021 Escape Trims & Features

The 2021 Ford Escape offers four trims: S, SE, SEL, and Titanium trim levels. Although a small SUV, the Escape has two rows of seats that can accommodate up to five adult occupants. Consider the SE if you want front-seat heating and driver-side power adjustability. Synthetic leather seat trim, driver-side memory, steering-wheel heating, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel appear at the SEL level. As the luxury-oriented trim, the Titanium stands alone with leather upholstery and both front seats receiving power adjustability.

Proximity keyless entry allows you to unlock the doors by simply having the key fob on you, and the FordPass Connect app gives you remote connectivity to the Escape. For entertainment, the vehicle connects a 4.2-inch display screen with a six-speaker AM/FM stereo system. A WiFi hotspot enables internet access at 4G LTE speeds.

Push-button engine start, a SiriusXM Radio trial subscription, electronic automatic temperature control, and an upgrade of the infotainment system to SYNC 3 with an 8-inch touchscreen appear at the SE level. The SEL welcomes remote engine start to optimize access to your vehicle, and two more trial subscriptions-to SiriusXM Traffic and SiriusXM Travel Link-join the satellite radio service. Only the Titanium has premium features such as a 12.3-inch digital instrumentation cluster, an auto-dimming rearview mirror with a garage-door opener, dual-zone electronic automatic temperature control, and a 10-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system.

2021 Ford Escape Horsepower

The base engine on the 2021 Ford Escape is the 1.5-liter EcoBoost inline 3-cylinder engine, which produces 180 horsepower. More muscle comes from the 2.0-liter EcoBoost inline 4-cylinder engine, which puts out 250 horsepower. This engine is optional on the SE and SEL, and is standard on the Titanium. Both the 1.5-liter and 2.0-liter are turbocharged and linked to an 8-speed automatic transmission. When choosing the hybrid model, it comes equipped with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine and an electric motor pairing, making a combined power output of 165 HP. The Escape PHEV houses the same engine with a larger electric motor, delivering up to 221 HP. 

Ford Escape Safety

Driver assistance on the 2021 Ford Escape comes in the form of the Ford Co-Pilot360 suite, which combines lane keeping assist, pre-collision assist with automatic emergency braking, and blind spot monitoring with cross-traffic alert. Also present are auto high beams and a rearview camera. Seven airbags are around for deployment if a crash occurs, with the accompanying SOS post-crash alert system to call for assistance. If you want adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go and lane centering, as well as park assist sensors to enhance rearview camera functionality, go with the Titanium.
