Borgman Ford is excited to share the recently-unveiled 2020 Ford Escape with SUV fans in West Michigan! Redesigned top to bottom, the 2020 Escape’s bold new look compliments some significant changes to the powertrain, and by all accounts, it’s a blast to drive.

The article posted in the Official Ford Media Center announcing the New 2020 Ford Escape was extensive. It covers a variety of topics including the exterior and interior design, powertrain overhaul including plug-in hybrid variants, driving dynamics, infotainment features, and much more.

With Ford expanding their SUV lineup for 2020 and beyond, we feel the sportier look for the New Ford Escape puts necessary emphasis on what has made it a favorite for the last 18 years. It’s stylish, affordable, light on its feet, and most of all, it’s fun to drive. Read some excerpts from the announcement by Ford below, and be on the lookout at Borgman this fall when the 2020 Escape arrives.


All-New Ford Escape Brings Style and Substance to Small SUVs with Class-Leading Hybrids, Flexibility and Exclusive Technology

With the reveal of the stylish new Escape, featuring the small SUV’s best-ever performance, flexibility, and smart new technology, Ford is reinventing the model that helped drive the popularity of the segment.

Escape, which debuted the world’s first hybrid SUV in 2005, brings back two hybrid choices for 2020, a standard hybrid and a plug-in variant, and introduces technologies ranging from drive modes and driver-assist features to electric vehicle ingenuity and onboard connectivity.

“This all-new Escape brings a sleeker, sportier design with the capability to take you on just about any of your life’s adventures,” said Kumar Galhotra, Ford’s president, North America.


To create a sportier look for the all-new Escape, designers turned to some of the most high-profile sports cars in the Ford showroom. The shield-shaped trapezoidal grille is inspired by the sixth-generation Mustang, while the lower front end borrows from Ford GT. Compared to the current model, the all-new Escape stands lower, wider and longer.

“This new vehicle performs like no other Escape before,” said Jim Hughes, Escape chief program engineer. “It’s quick, it’s responsive and, in staying true to the standard set by three generations of Escapes before it, it’s a heck of a lot of fun to drive.”

With a selectable drive mode system standard across the lineup, Escape makes it easy for Escape owners to create the driving experience they desire – or the one that conditions demand. Modes are tailored for normal, eco, sport and slippery, plus snow and sand conditions.
