Crossovers are king lately. They're the rising star of the vehicle world because everyone wants more room in their car. Crossovers allow for more storage and the ability to spend more time outdoors because you have enough room to store a variety of gear. The king of crossovers will always be Ford, if for no other reason than the vehicles are always smart with storage space because of the track record with award-winning trucks and SUVs that make up the current line-up. The Escape delivers on more than a few expectations for crossovers. With a lively engine, a roomy hatchback and a variety of trim levels (S, SE, SEL, and TItanium) it's no surprise that the 2020 Ford Escape is the crossover everyone's drooling over this year.
 
It's Not An SUV
 
The label "SUV" has become synonymous with cumbersome and huge. That's why the Escape isn't an SUV and it doesn't pretend to be one like many of the other crossovers currently on the market. The sloping, sleek roofline of the Escape paired with the lower height rounds it out to its own class of vehicle entirely. The upgraded engine is no joke either, you can find a 179-horsepower 1.5-liter turbo-4 that provides a great mixture of better gas mileage and a more responsive gas pedal. If you're looking for all-wheel drive though, you can always opt in for the 245-hp turbo-4 that imitates rally car responsiveness and matches the crossover's firm, steady ride well. What's even better is the cargo space. Since crossovers are known for storage, you won't be disappointed in the trunk space the Escape offers. When you flip the back seats down, you can take advantage of nearly 68 cubic feet of space for camping items, spare furniture and so much more.

Visual Appeal
 
The idea behind the Escape is to provide a hatchback with more options than a traditional hatchback carries. It's multi-purpose, meant for tiny parking spaces in urban environments as well as trekking through difficult weather and up into the wilderness when you need it to. It's a perfect middle ground between a racing liftback sort of vehicle and an SUV that's capable of doing gymnastics in the wilderness. This is the last year of the current generation of Escape, and the evolved styling is both innovative and utilitarian at once. You'll note that the interior is very specifically styled. The dashboard is sculpted to make the vehicle's control panel seem more like a cockpit than the dash of a vehicle. The available sunroof opens up the compact cabin that's made to feel more mid-size and lets you catch glimpses of actual sunlight while off on your rural adventures.

The Power

This crossover won't pretend to be an SUV. The 2020 Ford Escape is more characteristically like a hatchback, with high wheels to make it easier to navigate wilderness terrains with better ease. It's putting the most of all that space to use, especially when it's paired with the sportier trim. The top engine you can get inside the vehicle is perfect for both city and wilderness driving, mainly because it can zip from 0 to 60mph in around 7 seconds. It's got low-end punch and an impressive ability to pass those slowpokes on the road and it's equipped with paddle shift controls which encourages you to use that little skip in its step whenever you can. This alone makes it much better than driving a conservative hatchback or sluggish large SUV. The ride itself reflects that of a high-end vehicle because it's meant for multiple environments. You'll find the steering gripping and firm, which leaves you more in control of the higher profile vehicle with ease.
 
Features And Value
 
The premier features match the premier crossover. With keyless ignition, keypad entry paired with the Sync 3 infotainment system on an 8-inch screen for the control zone, you're just getting started. The features expand into Apple and Android compatibility, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats and a power tailgate with rear parking sensors. Ambient lighting, 18-inch wheels and blind spot monitors are only a bit more to add to the package and if you're feeling that your new crossover really needs to be equipped with the latest outdoors goodies you can add a tow package and automatic park assist to round out the value you're looking for.
