2024 Ford Escape Colors, Changes, Engine – Finally, footage of the redesigned 2024 Ford Escape in motion has surfaced. Interesting adjustments will be made to the look of Ford’s tiny crossover. As we can see, the new SUV has a grille that is more square and headlamps that are connected by an LED strip. In case you didn’t know, the Escape once held the title of best-selling SUV for Ford. Five years ago, Ford was selling more than 300,000 units of its compact crossover SUV, the Escape. With approximately 178,000 sold in 2020, the fourth-generation model hasn’t yet proven itself.
Ford is getting ready for a facelift, and a fully exposed prototype of the new crossover has been sighted close to its Kentucky manufacturing plant. Here is everything we know so far about the new SUV, without further ado.
2024 Ford Escape Redesign
Exterior And Interior Design
The 2024 Ford Escape dominates in this area thanks to its distinctive style. In essence, the design of this SUV will vary depending on the chosen trim. For example, the SE Sport Appearance option makes this SUV look better by adding black 19-inch alloy wheels and several different black paint colors for the outside.
There is also the SEL Stealth AWD package, which performs much the same functions as the Sport Appearance package with a few extras. There are three metallic blues available for the 2024 Ford Escape: Atlas, Iced, and Stone.
The new model will provide the same cozy chairs as the previous one. The Honda CR-V still had more rear legroom (40.7 inches), however. We should also mention that the luggage space in the back has a volume of 33.5 cubic feet and can be expanded to 65.4 cubic feet. Choosing a hybrid or plug-in hybrid, however, will result in a reduction of 30.7 or 60.8 cubic feet.
The manufacturer includes a large infotainment touchscreen, keyless entry/start, USB-A and USB-C connections, satellite radio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, improved voice recognition, and voice-controlled navigation as standard features in addition to the infotainment system.
2024 Ford Escape Engine
According to the information we have, the updated 2024 Ford Escape will still be available in gas, hybrid, and plug-in hybrid forms. This suggests that the same 1.5-liter turbocharged engine with 180 horsepower and 190 lb-ft of torque can be anticipated. The standard configuration of this model’s 8-speed automatic transmission sends power to the front wheels. All-wheel drive can be added as an option.
The same 8-speed transmission and a second 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine with 250 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque are used in the SEL. This engine comes standard with all-wheel drive. In addition, there are plug-in hybrids and on-offer hybrids (PHEV). An electric motor and a naturally aspirated 2.5-liter, 4-cylinder engine provide both vehicles with a combined 200 horsepower. According to Ford, the PHEV model has a usable range of 37 miles while operating in electric vehicle (EV) mode.
2024 Ford Escape Release Date And Price
The S variant with front wheels starts at $25,555 on the manufacturer’s suggested retail price list for the 2024 Ford Escape. The SE trim of the hybrid vehicle costs roughly $28,000, while the SE trim of the plug-in hybrid costs more than $33,000. All of the models should be available sometime in the next year, most likely in the summer.
