The compact SUV segment is a competitive one, but the 2021 Ford Escape easily stands out from the crowd. Behind the wheel of the 2021 Escape, you can count on an efficient and responsive ride, features that are both useful and comfortable, and all the latest safety and infotainment tech to keep you connected and confident.
Finding the right amount of power and capability for your needs is easy with the 2021 Ford Escape. The standard engine is a 1.5-litre EcoBoost® four-cylinder that puts out 181 horsepower and 190 lb-ft of torque. It can tow up to 907 kg. A 2.0-litre Twin-Scroll EcoBoost® four-cylinder is also available, pumping out 250 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque while boasting a maximum towing rating of 1,587 kg.
If you’re looking for true eco-friendly power, there are also hybrid and plug-in hybrid options. The 2.5-litre four-cylinder Hybrid powertrain puts out a total system output of 200 horsepower and 155 lb-ft of torque. It gets as low as 5.8 L/100 km combined. The plug-in-hybrid option uses the same hybrid engine, but offers a charge time that’s as low as 3.5 hours when using a 240-volt Level 2 charger.
Most Escape trims come available with all-wheel drive to help you take on British Columbia’s rain, snow, and ice. The Escape also offers selectable drive modes, including Normal, Eco, Slippery, Sport, and Deep Snow/Sand.
Practical and Convenient
The 2021 Escape is outfitted with a range of standard and available features to make your adventures more fun and convenient. It can seat up to five passengers with ease and offers up to 1,851.9 litres in cargo capacity. The rear 60/40-split seats fold flat for easy cargo loading, while the available hands-free foot-activated liftgate makes it easy to open your Escape even when your hands are full.
With available premium features like leather upholstery and a Panoramic Vista Roof®, the Escape adds a touch of luxury to your everyday routine. You can even battle the cold with some available cold weather features including a heated steering wheel, heated seats, remote start, an engine block heater, and floor liners.
The 2021 Escape doesn’t fall short when it comes to technology. It comes standard with the SYNC® 3 infotainment system, which includes Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone integration so you can access your favourite apps on the go. You can also use FordPass Connect™ to connect up to 10 devices to Wi-Fi at once — it even reaches up to 50 feet outside of the vehicle, which is great for camping trips. The available B&O Sound System by Bang and Olufsen uses 10 speakers to make your music sound the best it can.
The Escape will also give you peace of mind out on the road. That’s because it comes standard with the Ford Co-Pilot360™ suite of safety technologies, which includes:
Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking
BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert
Auto High-Beam Headlamps
Rear View Camera
