The all-new 2020 Ford Escape debuted with a total of 11 exterior color options, but it appears that one of those has been dropped from the lineup. Sedona Orange Metallic was introduced on the latest Ford Escape at launch, but it was discontinued earlier this year, and dealers are no longer able to order it, according to Ford Authority sources.
Sedona Orange Metallic was available in conjunction with all 2020 Ford Escape trim levels and interior color combinations. Now that it’s discontinued, buyers have a total of ten exterior color options to choose from: Star White Metallic Tri-coat, Rapid Red Metallic Tinted Clearcoat, Dark Persian Green, Velocity Blue, Desert Gold, Magnetic, Agate Black, Ingot Silver, Oxford White, and Blue Metallic.
The Ford Escape is a compact, two-seat crossover utility vehicle (CUV) that sits between the Ford EcoSport and the Ford Edge within the automaker’s lineup. For the 2020 model year, the Escape received a complete overhaul, consisting of a redesign and re-engineering, representing the first model year of the third-generation Escape.
Those updates included a more car-like exterior design, a lower loading floor and rear hatch opening for easier cargo loading, and unique exterior cues like model-specific grille and wheels for the Escape SE Sport. The 2020 Ford Escape also features an all-new interior, with a more space-efficient design, greater comfort, and all-new in-vehicle technology.
The 2020 Escape is available in S, SE, SE Sport, SEL, and Titanium trim levels, in either front-wheel-drive or all-wheel drive configuration. It’s available with one of four engines – Ford’s 1.5L EcoBoost I3 and 2.0L EcoBoost I4, which are both equipped with an 8-speed automatic transmission, or the 2.5L Hybrid I4 and 2.5L plug-in hybrid I4, which come with a Continuously Variable Automatic (CVT) transmission.
