Escape Has What It Takes to Stand Out in a Crowd

Keep Your Drive Going with Great Fuel Economy

No matter which engine option you choose, Chicago drivers can expect to have excellent fuel economy estimates. Opting for the base 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine gets you the best fuel economy ratings - 28 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway. These numbers are standard with the base front-wheel drive, though opting for all-wheel drive provides a solid 26 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway.

Upgrading to the more powerful 2.0-liter four-cylinder still gives you great fuel economy numbers with 23 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway estimates.

Find the Engine Option That Caters to Your Performance Needs

The 2021 Ford Escape can be equipped with two different engine options:

1.5-liter three-cylinder engine - 181 horsepower and 190 pound-feet of torque

2.0-liter four-cylinder - 250 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque
