2021 Ford Escape - Now in Winnipeg
The Ford Escape is the company's most popular family car, taking the compact crossover format and adding extra power and comfort to move a step beyond the competition. The new 2021 model is now available for sale in our Winnipeg showroom, and here are the impressive highlights of this popular SUV.
New Features for 2021
The major upgrade for 2021 is an extension of the driver assist package, with many new options including traffic sign recognition. And for those with heavier cargo requirements, there's a new Class II Trailer Tow package to take the Escape's haulage capability the next level.
The Escape follows the classic compact SUV design formula, combining sleek curves and lines with a reassuringly robust body. The large honeycomb front grille suggests there's plenty of power lurking under the hood, while the cabin layout offers plenty of space in both the front and rear rows with extensive cargo room behind.
Power and Performance
There are three main powertrain options available for the 2021 Escape. The standard engine is a 1.5L turbo gas model producing a healthy 181 horsepower, with the output passed to either front-wheel or all-wheel drive through an eight-speed automatic transmission. While this is a great family-friendly option combining power with economy, moving up to the 2.0L turbo option pushes the output up to 250hp, resulting in an impressive 0-100km/h time of 5.7 seconds. And lastly, there's also a hybrid powertrain available with an optional plugin version. Both varieties pair a 2.5L gas engine with dual electric motors to give a combined output of 221 horsepower.
On all but the entry level trim, the Escape is fitted with an 8" infotainment touchscreen powered by the widely praised Ford Sync 3 software, with smartphone integration handled by Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Higher trims also feature a 12.3" digital gauge display, in-dash navigation, and an optional head-up display.
Advanced Active Safety
Safety is a vital feature of any family SUV, and Ford's Co-Pilot360 package offers a generous selection of active driver assist systems. Available highlights include: - Forward collision warnings plus automated emergency braking. - Lane departure warnings with optional keep assist. - Blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alerts.
