The Ford Escape Is Ready for Adventure in North Vernon

In a new Ford Escape, you can take advantage of so many features. This SUV is nicely equipped, and it can give you a comfortable ride around Seymour. At Garlitch Ford in North Vernon, IN, we're pleased to offer many Escape trims. For 2021, Ford has expanded the hybrid availability. Now, you can get Titanium, SEL, and SE as hybrids. The base model is the S trim, and it's going to appeal to those customers who want to stick to tight budgets.


There's a lot to consider when it comes to what's under the hood of your new Ford Escape. First, there is a turbocharged 1.5-liter engine with three cylinders. It'll give you 181 horsepower, which is a pretty good number considering the Escape's relatively compact size. If you'd like more power, think about getting a model with a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine with four cylinders. It boosts horsepower up to 250. Either way, you'll get to use an eight-speed automatic transmission.

There are also two hybrid powertrains that can come with this Ford. They use 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engines along with electric motors. While one of these powertrains is a plug-in version and the other is a standard hybrid powertrain (that you simply take to the gas station to fill up), they can both generate 221 horsepower. It's great that going with a hybrid will give you more capability than what you'd find in a standard Escape. In many ways, getting a hybrid Escape is a win-win situation.

The non-hybrid Escapes manage to do quite well in the efficiency department. The exact numbers depend on whether front-wheel or all-wheel drive is selected and what type of engine has been installed in the vehicle. You could potentially earn up to 35 miles per gallon on the highway in an Escape. As you'd expect, the hybrids do even better in this regard. They could achieve up to 44 miles per gallon; this is great news for Greensburg drivers who wants to save on their long-term fuel costs.


With comfortable seating for five passengers and a sizable cargo area, the Escape can be a very practical vehicle. It has enough room for you to load everyone up and go on a long road trip together. If it's just you, maybe one or two others, and a larger piece of cargo, take advantage of the split bench in the back. One or two of the seatbacks can be lowered to give you much more space. Of course, the full seatback can be folded down to maximize your cargo capacity. Textured cloth seats are standard, and the other choices are faux-leather and genuine leather. A panoramic vista roof is available if you like the idea of letting in natural light into your cabin and opening things up when the weather is ideal. Most of the Escape trims come with an eight-inch touchscreen and smartphone compatibility. Higher trims could have a Bang & Olufsen sound system and integrated navigation.

What's New for 2021?

In addition to making more hybrid trims than they had in the past, Ford has added in some optional features on this SUV. The Co-Pilot360 Plus Package now comes with adaptive cruise control and traffic-sign recognition; the Technology Package has been enhanced with a hands-free power liftgate and memory functions for the side mirrors and driver's seat; and the Convenience Package includes a 10-way power-adjustable driver's seat, keypad on the driver's door, and LED exterior lighting. If you're planning on towing a lot of cargo with your new Escape, consider getting the Class II Trailer Tow Package and the turbocharged 2.0-liter engine to give yourself the capability you'll need.
