New 2021 Ford Escape for Sale Martinsville VA


The current fourth-generation 2021 Ford Escape is a compact crossover SUV that appears to get just about everything right. It makes no pretense of being some sort of hardcore off-roader and instead concentrates on being the superb all-rounder for a wide variety of different buyers. If you're in the market for a stylish, sporty, fuel-efficient compact SUV that's great value for money and boasts a stellar safety report card, look no further than the 2021 Ford Escape.

 A contemporary lineup for 2021

The main change you'll find with the Escape for the 2021 model year is the trim level lineup, which sees an expansion in the availability of hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants. The main trim levels are the entry-level Escape S, and then the range goes to the SE, SEL and the top of the range Titanium.

Entry-level S models are only available with a gas engine, but the other three trim levels are all available in gas, hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions. It's great for buyers who might be thinking of going for a hybrid or plug-in hybrid to have so much choice with the Escape. The Escape lineup is now one of the most contemporary in its class and is sure to temp more buyers to consider a hybrid or plug-in hybrid.


Four great options

There are no fewer than four different powerplants available in the 2021 Escape lineup. The first of this tasty quartet is the standard 1.5-liter turbo-three that develops 181 horsepower and 190 lb.-ft. of torque. SEL and Titanium models can be specified with a more powerful 2.0-liter turbo-four, which then gives the Escape an impressive 250 horsepower and 280 lb.-ft. of torque to play with.

Hybrid models have a gas/electric powertrain that consists of a 2.5-liter inline-four gas engine, an electric motor and a lithium-ion battery. This system is good for a combined 200 horsepower and 155 lb.-ft. of torque, and the plug-in version has a bigger battery pack that means it can drive on electricity only for up to 37 miles.
Gas-only versions of the Escape come with an eight-speed automatic transmission with AWD available as an option, while hybrid and plug-in versions of the Escape use a CVT transmission instead.

Any way you want it

The Escape S model comes with an impressive set of standard safety features that help make the Escape one of the highest-rated models in its class for overall safety, but most buyers will probably opt for the SE trim level or higher. A big reason for this is the infotainment system, which once you go above the entry model is an 8.0-inch touchscreen unit with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

SE models come with a 10-way power driver's seat, heated front seats, Intelligent Access with pushbutton start, automatic climate control and 18-inch alloy wheels. SEL models up the ante further with the likes of a reverse sensing system, a hands-free foot-activated liftgate, a leather-wrapped and heated steering wheel and remote start.
If you'd like your Escape to come with upscale features such as leather upholstery, bigger alloy wheels, parking assistance, a premium B&O sound system, navigation, acoustic glass and more, the Escape Titanium is happy to oblige.
