2021 Ford Escape Launch Timeframe
As of this writing, the 2021 Ford Escape is available at the retail level, as the Ford Louisville Assembly plant has been producing the crossover since early January. But the ongoing microchip shortage disrupted Ford Escape and Lincoln Corsair production for about two weeks in January.

Riding on the Ford C2 platform shared with the Ford Bronco Sport, Ford Focus, Lincoln Corsair, and the upcoming Ford Maverick pickup. The Escape was completely overhauled (redesigned and re-engineered) for the 2020 model year, representing the fourth generation of the nameplate.
