Order Reprints

April 4, 2019—The 2020 Ford Escape grew in size but reduced weight by 200 pounds, according to The Detroit Free Press.

The completely redesigned 2020 Ford Escape, a popular compact SUV and the company’s No. 2 best-selling vehicle after the Ford F-Series pickup, debuted Tuesday.

The new vehicle is made with high-strength steel, and lightweight steel. The vehicle offers safety features including adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go and lane-centering technology.

Active parking assist allows the driver to parallel or perpendicular park with the touch of a button — no need to work the steering wheel, gas or brake pedal. What's more, the new Escape's evasive steering assist detects slow-moving or stationary objects and provides steering support to avoid collision.
