What's New on the 2021 Ford Escape?

Just one model year after the Ford Escape's complete overhaul, the 2021 Escape still manages to raise the bar even higher. For those seeking extraordinary efficiency, SE and SEL trims now offer an available hybrid powertrain - which comes standard on the range-topping Titanium trim. Several packages also see valuable additions, such as driver's seat memory settings in the Technology package and traffic sign recognition in the Co-Pilot 360 Plus bundle of advanced safety equipment. Through and through, the 2021 Ford Escape represents the best aspects of a compact SUV, delivering car-like maneuverability, a comfortable cabin, safety and entertainment equipment, and plenty of power in one stylish and spirited package.

Ford Escape's History: Getting to Know the SUV's Past

The Ford Escape made its official debut as a 2001 model year. While most similar vehicles were truck-like in nature, the Escape stood out by more closely resembling a car, including its independent suspension, rack-and-pinion steering, and unibody design. The first Escape had 33 or 63 cubic feet for cargo, depending on whether the seats were up. It used the same engine as the Focus, a 130-horsepower 2-liter with the option of a 200-horsepower 3-liter Duratec V6. All models were offered with front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive and had air conditioning, power accessories, remote keyless entry, a rear liftgate, a CD player, and more, with available features including cruise control and leather. The top-of-the-line Limited trim was added for 2003, and an Escape Hybrid joined the lineup for 2005.

The Escape entered its second generation for the 2008 model year with a range of interior updates. These included enhancements to the interior lighting system, instrument cluster, and center console, along with new seats made using eco-friendly materials. The exterior received new headlights and a new grille with redesigned wheel arches. The powertrains and transmission were updated for 2009, and Ford MyKey was added for 2010, designed for teen drivers.
