2021 Ford Escape continues with the production this year, too. This prevalent model, since the first SUV version was made in 2000, still has fans all over the world. This time it comes with few changes in design and high new engine versions.
- The model is beautiful and modern.
- It has excellent engine options in offer.
- The cabin is maybe too small for this class.
- The design has not been changed for a long time.
Since it should be a significant competitor to Toyota RAV4, 2021 Ford Escape has retained the same design with only a few changes in details. It means that we should see a small and beautiful SUV with significant additions and equipment.
However, it does not have a traditional rough and robust design, like Nissan Rogue, so that you can use it as for city driving as well. The manufacturer has retained recognizable front end and grille, with thin and narrowed lights. The rear end is small and short, rounded, and simple, so provide design like on sports cars.
The manufacturer has not significantly changed the design of the cabin in the 2021 Ford Escape. It comes with the same features and equipment, which is, to be honest, among the best in class. There are great things like a productive entertainment system and a great infotainment system. However, the cabin is visibly more substantial and more comfortable now, so do even taller passengers could enjoy it there. The driver will have a much better seat position than before.
2021 Ford Escape Engine
The manufacturer has decided not to change much under the hood when it comes to the 2021 Ford Escape. They will include the same engines as before. It means that the base model comes with a 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine that produces 180 horsepower. It is not only durable but also has an excellent fuel economy.
Higher trims come with an optional four-cylinder engine and 250 horsepower. Among them is a very popular 2.0-liter that could have even 275 horsepower. However, nothing above is enough without significant improvements that the manufacturer has made in this model. It should have lighter weight and lower suspension for smooth driving, along with 200 pounds less in weight.
The fuel economy is 27/33 city/highway driving. When it comes to the safety system, they have improved existing features like a collision warning system, blind-spot warning, automated emergency braking, a rearview camera, park assist, automatic emergency braking, and adaptive cruise control.

It has changed from the last year’s model, so buyers will surely upgrade the base model and have a higher price. However, people from this factory claim that it will not be much higher from this number. We should expect the model around September of 2020.
