When you've finished reading, give us a call with any questions!

Power & Performance

One of the most important features to note on the Ford Escape is its respective powertrain-a standard 1.5L EcoBoost® engine that works with an 8-speed automatic transmission. Together, this duo creates an impressive output of 181 horsepower and 190 lb-ft of torque. In addition to plenty of power, the standard escape is also able to achieve exceptional fuel economy: an EPA-estimated 28 city and 34 highway MPG.¹

If towing is at the top of your to-do list, you can opt for the available 2L Ti-VCT GTDI I-4, which delivers 250 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. With this much power, it's no surprise the Escape can haul up to 3,500 pounds when properly equipped.

Interior Dimensions

If interior space is what you need in your next SUV, the 2021 Ford Escape offers tons of space for both passengers and cargo. The Ford Escape comes with 104 cubic feet of room for up to five riders to stretch out, plus the following dimensions:

  • Headroom (front and second row)-40/39.3 inches 
  • Legroom (front and second row)-42.4/40.7 inches
  • Hip Room (front and second row)-55.2/53.3 inches
  • Shoulder Room (front and second row)-57.6/56 inches

If you don't need the second row for riders, make the most of your cargo storage with the 60/40 split-fold seats with a sliding feature. This feature is ideal when you're trying to haul those larger cargo items.

Ford Escape: Cabin Highlights

To keep you connected while living life on the go, the 2021 Ford Escape comes with features like Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. With features like FordPass™ Connect, you'll have control over your SUV from the palm of your hand. If you plan on utilizing these features, you'll need your phone at full charge, which is why the Ford Escape offers the optional Wireless Charging Pad.

Across the entire Escape trim lineup, you'll be protected by Ford Co-Pilot360™, an advanced suite of safety and driver's assist technology. Ford Co-Pilot360™ comes with features like BLIS® (Blind Spot Infotainment System) with Cross-Traffic Alert, Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, and more.

In addition to tons of passenger space, the Ford Escape offers additional ways to stay comfortable. The Escape comes with standard cloth front bucket seats, a 6-way manual driver's seat, and a 4-way manual passenger seat, allowing you to set your ideal seating position.
