2021 Ford Escape Engine

Home
 The Ford Escape 2021 has a little bit of everything. Its seats are roomy, and the available SYNC 3 infotainment system is simple to use. A punchy turbo-four engine option and well-balanced handling make this crossover feel relatively lively and fun to drive, and fuel economy with the base turbocharged three-cylinder engine is adequate. With the exception of some low-quality plastics in the cabin, this compact SUV is an appealing vehicle.

The 2021 Escape is available with a variety of powertrains, beginning with a 181-hp turbocharged 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine with front- or all-wheel drive. While somewhat grumbly and unrefined, the turbo three provides adequate acceleration, propelling an all-wheel-drive Escape SE to 60 mph in 7.7 seconds on our test track. Upgrading to the 250-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine is a compelling option, as it is powerful enough to achieve a 5.7-second zero-to-60-mph time in the same test. Both engines are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

To compete with the Honda CR-V hybrid and Toyota RAV4 Prime, Ford offers two Escape hybrids, one of which is a plug-in hybrid, with powertrains that include a 2.5-liter four-cylinder and two electric motors that produce 221 horsepower.

The 2021 Ford Escape achieves a good balance of comfort and poise. The suspension smoothes out most road imperfections, and while this Ford won't take hairpin turns as eagerly as the Mazda CX-5, its light steering and lack of body roll keep it feeling planted. Front-wheel drive is standard, with the option of all-wheel drive.
