El Ford Escape 2020 cuesta $ 25,980 al inicio y más de $ 40,000 con carga completa

El SUV compacto rediseñado de Ford tiene un precio razonable considerando sus características adicionales y el nuevo modelo híbrido.

Ford has released pricing for the new Escape compact SUV, which has been redesigned for 2020.

The base S model starts at $ 25,980, while a fully loaded Titanium can surpass $ 40,000 with options.

Ford says the Escape and Escape hybrid models will go on sale this fall, with the plug-in hybrid arriving next spring.

The new 2020 Ford Escape is not scheduled to go on sale for a few more months, but we now know how much it will cost. It mostly holds the line on price compared with its predecessor, with just a slight uptick of a few hundred dollars for most versions of the redesigned compact crossover. The trim levels and their prices are as follows:

Escape S $25,980, Escape SE $28,190, Escape SE Sport (hybrid) $29,530, Escape SEL $30,350, Escape Titanium (hybrid) $34,495, Escape Titanium $37,780.

The Escape S serves as the base model and starts at $ 25,980, $ 780 more than the previous Escape’s starting price despite newly standard features such as a suite of driver-assist features including blind-spot monitoring and forward collision warning. The $ 28,190 SE model adds an 8.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and the $ 30,350 SEL models add more features. These models all come standard with front-wheel drive, an eight-speed automatic, and a turbocharged 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine making 180 horsepower.

All-wheel drive is at $ 1500 option, and on the SEL trim, choose AWD opens up the option for more powerful turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 250 horsepower, for $ 2285. The top-of-the-line Titanium Escape starts at $ 37,780 and comes only with all-wheel-drive and the 2.0-liter engine. Adding options to the Titanium Escape can push its price past $ 40,000.

Returning to the lineup is an Escape hybrid model, which comes in two trims: the $ 29,530 SE Sport and the $ 34,495 Titanium. Both offer front-wheel drive as standard and all-wheel drive as either $ 1320 or $ 1500 option. We do not have official EPA fuel-economy estimates for the Escape hybrid but we expect it to get up around 38 mpg combined. A plug-in hybrid model with a claimed 30 miles of all-electric driving range arrives next year, but pricing has not been released for that version yet.
