2020 Ford Escape Family-Friendly Features | Packey Webb Ford | Downers Grove, IL 

All Ford SUVs are built for families, but the Ford Escape in particular has an abundance of family-friendly features. This award-winning model in Downers Grove, Illinois, earned the title of compact SUV with the most driver appeal, according to J.D. Power. Here's a look at what makes the 2021 Ford Escape so appealing.


Exceptional efficiency

Something special the Escape offers that few other family SUVs do is hybrid gas-electric power.

In addition to its standard 1.5-liter and 2.0-liter EcoBoost® engines, the 2021 Escape offers an available 2.5-liter iVCT Atkinson-cycle hybrid engine. It can draw from the electric battery and gas tank concurrently as a basic hybrid that averages a dollar-saving 44 mpg in stop-and-go traffic in Chicago. Or, the powertrain can be configured as a plug-in hybrid to run on electricity only for a limited distance before switching to gas.

A spacious ride

Whether you're travelling on a summer road trip or commuting to the office, you need a spacious, comfortable ride for all your passengers. The Escape delivers that by offering the most second-row legroom of any model in its class.

And when it comes to storing their backpacks and sports equipment, the Escape is spacious and versatile in its stowage solutions. You have 37.5 cubic feet of space behind the second row, plus you can optimize that by utilizing the sliding, 60/40 split-folding seats.

Connectivity for your active life

In addition to the essential smartphone connectivity solutions like the Ford SYNC® infotainment system, the Ford Escape offers remote connection via FordPass Connect™. This convenient app allows you to start the engine, lock the doors, locate where it's parked, and check its fuel level. It can even turn your 2021 Escape into a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot accessible up to 50 feet away.

Safety you can depend on

You can ride securely in the 2021 Escape because it offers an abundance of driver assist and protection tools via Ford Co-Pilot360™. You'll have extra eyes on the road and hands on the wheel with semi-autonomous functions like Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, Active Park Assist 2.0, and Blind Spot Information System®.

Bring your family to Packey Webb Ford and take a ride in the 2021 Escape. We think you'll appreciate how practical and innovative this affordable SUV is.
