New Ford Escape Edison, NJ

The Ford Escape has long been a popular vehicle model in the United States. In fact, this SUV model has been in production since 2000. There are numerous reasons why this vehicle has maintained its popularity over the years. If you are on the market for a vehicle in the Watchung area, you might want to consider purchasing this vehicle or at least test driving it.

What's New on the Ford Escape?

There is a lot that's new for the Ford Escape in 2020. Ford has given the vehicle model a complete redesign. The updates to the vehicle have included not only enhancements to the vehicle's aesthetic, but also performance improvements. Both power and acceleration have increased in the 2020 Ford Escape. The changes are the beginning of the Fourth Generation of the Ford Escape.


Overall, the Ford Escape is the result of Ford's efforts to produce a more efficient and less bulky SUV. You might be wondering, how many miles to the gallon does the new 2020 Ford Escape get? This vehicle gets impressive gas mileage for an SUV coming in at 27 mpg for city driving and 33 mpg for highway driving. This makes the vehicle less expensive to own and drive. In addition to decent gas mileage figures, the 2020 Ford Escape offers additional efficiency advantages in that there are two hybrid models available.

Piscataway Township drivers who want to take advantage of the hybrid option with the Ford Escape must upgrade the vehicle to either the SE Sport or the Titanium trim option. These options come with a 2.5-liter Atkinson cycle engine with four cylinders. The hybrid engine comes paired with electric motors combined with an automatic transmission that is continuously variable.

The Ford Escape has as its base engine a 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine with EcoBoost turbocharged technology. This standard engine replaces the four-cylinder model that was available in the previous year's model of the Ford Escape. Features offered with the new engine include the cylinder deactivation system. This makes it possible to cut off use of one cylinder at times when added power is not necessary. Another major update of the 2020 Ford Escape is that it has an eight-speed automatic transmission as its standard transmission rather than the six-speed automatic of previous year models.

Edison drivers can take advantage of four different driving modes when they are behind the wheel in the Ford Escape. These include the Normal, Eco, Sport, Slippery, and Snow and Sand modes. These mode options don't just increase driver comfort, but they also make the ride safer. Switching modes will alter certain factors with the way the vehicle drives including how the throttle responds, how the transmission shifts, and how the cylinder deactivation feature is utilized. Generally speaking, most drivers will probably want to stay on either the Normal or Eco mode most of the time.

The new Ford Escape is both longer and wider, creating a vehicle with more room on the interior. Drivers and passengers in both the front and rear of the car can take advantage of more spaciousness both in the shoulder and hip areas. Also, reclining capabilities have been added to the rear seats in the vehicle.
