What are the Ford Escape Trims & Features?

The 2020 Ford Escape is split into four trims: the S, the SE, the SEL, and the Titanium. Designed as a five-seater, the Escape includes cloth seat trim, a 6-way adjustable driver's seat, and a 4-way adjustable passenger as standard features. At the SE trim level, the Escape is upgraded with front-seat heating and a 10-way power-adjustable driver's seat. At the SEL trim level, the Escape is enhanced with driver-side memory, ActiveX seating material (Ford's partial-leather seat-trim brand), and a leather-wrapped heated steering wheel.

Only the Titanium has leather seats and a 6-way power-adjustable front passenger seat. For comfort and convenience, the 2020 Escape starts off with features such as proximity key entry, a 4.2-inch instrument cluster, remote connectivity with FordPass Connect, a six-speaker stereo system, and a trial subscription to SiriusXM satellite radio. SYNC 3 infotainment integration, a smart key system with push-button engine start, and electronic automatic temperature control appear at the SE trim level. The SEL trim level is enhanced with remote engine start and SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link trial subscriptions. Unique to the Titanium is an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a garage-door opener, a 10-speaker stereo system, and dual-zone electronic automatic temperature control.

Raw Power and Stellar Performance

The I3 comes with an auto start-stop system to avoid unnecessary fuel consumption, and it is mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox. There's the possibility of getting a 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder (I4) instead of the I3; that gives a 70-horsepower bump. Only the Titanium has a 2.5-liter Atkinson-cycle I4 engine, which produces 198 horsepower and is hitched to a continuously variable transmission.
