Buy or Lease A New Ford Escape in Porterville, CA

A Look at the 2021 Ford Escape

Ford vehicles like the Ford Escape are common to see on Porterville roads. This is because Ford provides efficient services in taking you where you need to be. Our dealership hopes to see more 2021 Ford Escape vehicles on the road by the end of the year. This is because the Escape is back with a bang, and we love it. The 2021 Ford Escape is the Ford to grab this year. It comes with many upgrades showing that the company was determined to give its fans the best features.

 


Performance

The company was generous with four engines in the current year model of the Escape. The standard one is a 181 horsepower and 190 torque EcoBoost inline-3 1.5-liter engine. It comes in the SE, S, and SEL 2021 Escape models. This engine has a fuel-deactivation feature that enables Tulare and Lindsay, CA drivers to stop running the engine when in traffic. This helps save more fuel. It can get EPA estimates as high as 26 mpg and 31 mpg city and highway, respectively. Also, there is an EcoBoost four-cylinder 2-liter engine emitting 250 horsepower and 280 torque. It is only available with an all-wheel-drive with EPA estimates of 23 mpg city and 31 mpg highway. Ford provides two hybrid engine options in the current year model of the Escape. They are both EcoBoost 2.5-liter engines tied to an 88 kW electric motor and emit 200 horsepower and 155 torque. These engines make up for the low power by having incredibly high EPA estimates of up to 44 mpg.

Design

The design of the exterior is not different from that of the outgoing Ford Escape. However, it leaves behind the generational box design of other Escapes. The company deviated from this shape to a shape with better aerodynamics. For one, the roof rack was lowered to break wind resistance. The front end of the 2021 Ford Escape is also slightly curved to reduce wind resistance. The new shape improves the fuel consumption capacity of the 2021 Ford Escape. The wheel size ranges from 17 to 19 inches; base models have 17 inches, while higher ones have 19-inch wheels.

Ford designed the interior with intuition. The balance of physical controls and touchscreen controls on the center stack is good. Delano and Exeter drivers will have no problem maneuvering these controls. All seats are comfortable for adult-sized passengers. However, rear legroom is a squeeze for adults but fit for children. The company uses plastic panels, cloth, simulated leather, and trimmed leather to furnish the cabin. The plastics go to the lower center console and doors. Cloth upholstery is available in the base trim, while the Titanium gets trimmed leather front seats. For an SUV of its size, one would easily underestimate the cargo capacity of the trunk. However, Ford awes us all by providing capacity large enough for 21 carry-on suitcases when you stow the back seats.

Safety

The Ford Co-Pilot360 and Co-Pilot360 Plus are Ford's signature safety parameters in the 2021 Escape. The former has lane-keeping assistance, automatic emergency brakes, automatic high-beam headlights, and a blind-spot detection system. The latter enables the Escape to automatically steer when active parking assist is on, in emergency events, and on the highway.

Trim Levels

The 2021 Ford Escape trim include:

  • The new SE: It has a keyless entry and heated front seats.
  • The new S: It has cloth upholstery and an automatic eight-speed.
  • The new SEL: It has sport front seats and a heated steering wheel wrapped in leather.
  • The new Hybrid SEL: It has a B&O audio system and dual-zone climate control.
  • The new SE Sport Hybrid: It has grille accents and black mirror caps.
  • The new PHEV SE: It only comes as a forward-wheel drive with a continuously variable transmission.
  • The new Hybrid Titanium: It has floor lights and ambient cabin lighting.
