2021 Ford Escape Deletes The 110V/150W AC Power Outlet

Sponsored Links

Following a complete overhaul for the 2020 model year, not much has changed with the 2021 Ford Escape. However, one notable feature is missing from the 2021 Escape – the 110V/150W AC power outlet that was previously included on 2020 Ford Escape Titanium models bundled with the Titanium Package 2.0, which also included the Head-up Display and the Panoramic Vista Roof.

For 2021, two USB powerpoints are located on the rear section of the center console on SE and higher trims which include one USB-A port and one USB-C port. A 12V powerpoint is standard on S trim.

In addition to losing this power outlet, the 2021 Escape is also no longer available with Ford’s SelectShift paddle shifters, as Ford Authority reported back in November of last year. Additionally, a tire repair kit has replaced the spare tire, though a spare remains an option for those that want one.

As we recently reported, the 2021 Escape adds four new exterior colors to its roster: Antimatter Blue Metallic, Bronze Fire Metallic, Carbonized Gray Metallic, and Iconic Silver Metallic. Ford’s 2.5L Atkinson Cycle I4 Hybrid powerplant is also now available on SE and SEL trims for the new model year.

The other big news for the new model year Escape is that production of the previously-delayed 2021 Escape PHEV and 2021 Lincoln Corsair PHEV models, both of which ride on the same Ford C2 platform, is currently set for April 6th, 2021 at the Ford Louisville Assembly plantone day later than Ford previously planned.

Production of the regular 2021 Escape has been underway since January, however, as we reported yesterday, the Louisville plant is currently shut down for one week due to issues related to the recent winter storms plaguing much of the U.S.

    • Absolutely right. Pay more, increasingly get less.
      My ’17 Titanium had a CD player and Paddle Shifters. I used both every day. My ’19 Titanium lost both.
      The ’21 has neither, has cheap-looking interior panels, lost the pocket on the passenger door, and likely more that I haven’t yet noticed.
      The Mazda CX-5 is looking better-and-better.

  2. We just turned in our 18 escape for a 2020. Alot of features we liked on the 18 are no longer available. We had to move up a trim level just to get back a few options we liked. These suvs have all kinds of issues that apparently ford has not bothered to issue a recall or at least a notice about.

  3. Well we’ve been a Ford family for 50 years. I presently drive an 04 Sable Wagon. Have been considering an Escape, but not now. Taking away options. Utterly ridiculous and raising the price. I will be looking elsewhere.
