2020 Ford Escape Plug-in Hybrid: Live Photo Gallery

Sponsored Links

At the 2019 New York International Auto Show, Ford had most of its latest vehicles on display. We’ve already shown your the all-new 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid. The model that lots of hybrid fans are looking forward to is the 2020 Escape Plug-in Hybrid or PHEV. We caught the all-new crossover in the flesh during the show, and this is the 2020 Ford Escape Plug-in Hybrid in SEL trim.

The front of the 2020 Ford Escape Plug-in Hybrid looks just like the other models of the crossover. The 2020 Escape has styling more in common with the discontinued in the States Ford Focus. Ford wants the 2020 Escape to be a sedan alternative, hence the car-like styling. The Escape has more Ford car styling cues than SUV styling, meaning a trapezoidal front grille and headlights pushed up to the corners of the hood with the familiar teardrop design. We also see on the front the fog lights in the faux cooling vents that are reminiscent of the Ford GT hypercar.

Looking down the side of the 2020 Ford Escape Plug-in Hybrid shows the blinkers, in amber, tucked into the far corners of the headlights. The wheels are a split spoke design that is very different from the standard Escape hybrid we talked about previously. The ride height of the all-new Escape is something that Ford worked hard on with the automaker stating that the ride height will be appealing to younger, first-time buyers and empty nesters who need something easier to get in and out of than a full-size SUV.

The rear quarter shot gives a good look at the integrated rear spoiler with the third brake light at the top of the liftgate, wraparound taillights, and the license plate frame in the middle of the liftgate. We see the faux air vents on the corners right above the rear bumper that remind of the Ford GT. The dual exhaust pipes come out of a metallic silver finisher. In the bottom right corner of the liftgate is a small emblem that calls this 2020 Ford Escape Plug-in Hybrid out for its plug-in nature.

  1. I really like the overall look of the new 2020 Escape. I currently own a 2017 Escape Titanium Awd 2.0 Ecoboost. I’ve ask my dealership to call me as soon as they receive the 2020. I think my 2017 is a fantastic SUV in everyway, but after reviewing this article’s pictures and visiting Ford’s website. The exterior and interior look fantastic. I’m looking forward to finding out if the 2020 is good enough to trade my 2017. I’m become a big fan of the 2.0 which was an option in 2017. I’ve added a couple mods like a Magnaflow Cat-Back and an Airaid cold air. I’m basically turning my Titanium into an ST with an upcoming 93 octane tune unless I trade it. Regarding my engine choices. The 2.0 Ecoboost is my front runner, but the Hybrid is a consideration. From what I can see. Nice job Ford.

      • I dislike SUVs/CUVs. My preference for a car or automobile is a sedan or coupe not an overblown station wagon pretending it is sporty.

        • I felt the same way before purchasing my Escape. It handles as good or better than many sedans and is more car like then most SUVs I test drove. I test drove several brands of SUVs & cars when trading my other brand sedan. The Escape was my choice. If everyone liked the same style, make and model of vehicles. It would be pretty boring auto shopping.

    • And your reason? I doubt if you actually seen one unless you attended an Auto show where the new Escape was on display. Was invited to a Ford dealer meeting, viewed the available pictures or set in one. I’m also certain you haven’t driven one. From what I’ve actually seen and read regarding the 2020 Escape. It sounds and looks like like a great vehicle, but I’ll make my final decision regarding the vehicle after an extended test drive. Otherwise how can you make a good decision unless you just don’t like Fords.

      • Don, I have and I stand my ground. It’s for the whipped to feel that a station wagon/van is a macho vehicle. Enough said.

          • Well keep driving those ugly boxes on wheels. Unique? What world are you from? Keep your inane criticisms to yourself.
