Tim Short Ford of MoreheadCan't Stop Talking About the New 2020 Ford Escape

Ford knows a thing or two about good vehicles and has been constructing good cars for many years. At our dealership in Morehead, KY, we have a handful of Ford cars that we would be more than happy to show you. One of the most exciting vehicles this time around is the new 2020 Ford Escape, and we have a lot to say about this Ford.


The Ford Escape is one of the most impressive SUVs out there, and it all starts with the engine. You have a couple of options when it comes to the vehicle's engine, like the 2.5-liter hybrid engine or the 2.0-liter eco-boost engine. Both engines not only deliver state-of-the-art features like fuel efficiency but also provide more than enough power.

The eco-boost engine is a good option because it comes with the stop and start tech feature that shuts off the engine when idling to save you gas. And then the vehicle starts back up when you press down on the gas with no issues.

You should also know that the vehicle's all-wheel-drive feature can be disconnected when you don't need it, which means you'll be saving power there, too. You can see why many Maysville, KY are loving the new Ford Escape, and we think you should give it a chance to impress you.


The next thing we'd like to talk about is the Ford Escape's design, which is pretty impressive. It has been given an updated look, making the vehicle look more athletic, thanks to some of the aerodynamic choices the automaker made.

There is a level of sophistication you can see in the vehicle as well, which makes it stand out from the rest in Grayson, KY. Those who want to drive through Mount Sterling in a car that can turn heads you are going to enjoy driving the Escape.

The vehicle's grille is uncompromising and memorable, and this is another exterior design feature we think makes the Escape special.

It should also be noted that the Escape comes with a rotary gear shift dial instead of what you'd typically expect, and that gives you a lot more space on the vehicle's console. There is a lot more legroom for maximum comfort and a lot more cargo space.


The vehicle comes with several safety features, starting with the driving modes. Yes, you can switch your driving modes, and that increases your safety. It doesn't matter if you're driving in slippery wet conditions or icy snow, the drive modes have your back. Your vehicle is going to give you a lot more control when you need it most, keeping you and your family safer.

Of course, it doesn't end there because Ford also added features like the blind-spot monitoring system. This system warns you if there is a vehicle in your blind spot when you are attempting to merge.

You also get a front-collision warning system that should help you stop your vehicle before hitting someone. This system is paired with emergency braking assistance that kicks in if the system thinks you won't have time to stop.

Trim Levels

The vehicle has some trims to choose from, like the Escape S, the Escape SE, the Escape SE Sport Hybrid, the Escape SEL, and the Escape Titanium.

Of course, the most economical option is the Escape S, which is the one that most Flemingsburg drivers purchase, but the other vehicles have a lot to offer, like how the Hybrid trim gives you a much more eco-friendly vehicle than the rest.

The Titanium comes with an O&B sound system that sounds beautiful, and this does make sense since O&B has been a leading provider of premium sound systems for a long time.

Hopefully, these features help you see why the Escape is the right vehicle for you. Go ahead and give this vehicle a chance by contacting us or visiting our dealership and taking it out for a test drive.

New Ford Escape in Morehead, KY

The 2019 Ford Escape Makes Any Drive in Our Morehead Neck of the Kentucky Woods an Adventure

There are compact SUVs, and then there are what they ought to be. The new Ford Escape, back for 2019, is in the latter category. It's not only the capable and dependable choice for navigating northeast Kentucky, it's also loaded with creature comforts and amenities you need to make that haul a pleasure cruise. Of course, that's not to mention that it's a model of striking crossover style. See for yourself, right here at Tim Short Ford of Morehead!

What's New for 2019

The new Escape gets modest updates for the latest model year. First of all, everything from remote start and one-touch power windows to Intelligent Access and push-button start come standard in Escape SE and SEL trims. Secondly, Escape SEL gets new, better, and more comfortable seating materials. Finally, SYNC Connect technology has evolved to a more integrated form, now called FordPass Connect. Of course, just as with any Ford compact crossover, there's plenty more to it, too.

Power and Performance

The 2019 Escape is a small SUV by class, but that doesn't mean it's not big on the capabilities you've come to expect from Ford. The journey begins with a choice among three engines, efficiency-minded to higher-octane.

  • Escape S features a 2.5-liter iVCT inline-four for a balance of power and fuel economy. It delivers a spirited 168 horsepower backed by 170 pound-feet of torque and it's mated to a standard six-speed SelectShift auto transmission. Expect to go the extra mile, too. This trim can get up to 21 mpg in a city like Maysville, KY, 29 mpg across the highway to Flemingsburg, and 24 mpg combined between Mount Sterling KY and Morehead KY, according to EPA estimates.
  • Escape SE and SEL get a bump in acceleratory power, incorporating a 179-horsepower, 1.5-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder. It's capable of 177 pound-feet of torque, and, thanks to Auto Start-Stop Technology, it's great with gas. Count on up to 23 city mpg, 30 mpg on the highway and 26 combined mpg by EPA estimates.
  • Escape Titanium builds in a workhorse -- a 2.0-liter EcoBoost I4 driving 245 horsepower with 275 pound-feet of torque.

Factor in a standard four-wheel independent suspension as well as the cornering precision of standard Torque Vectoring Control. The verdict's clear: you can look forward to a ride just as agile and responsive as it is confidently powerful.

2019 Ford Escape SUV 

Safety and Driver-Assist Features

There are many reasons why a new Escape is one of the safer bets out there. The long story, short: it's geared for both the highway cruise and the unbeaten path. That owes to more than simply a winning combination of standards like the SUV's Personal Safety, Safety Canopy, and SOS Post-Crash Alert systems, or passive elements like AdvanceTrac with RSC (Roll Stability Control™) and Curve Control. It's also active when it comes to safeguarding your drive. Such available technologies range from intelligent 4WD to those in the optional Ford Safe and Smart Package, not to mention adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, a BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) with cross-traffic alert, and more.

Interior Features and Technology

A ride's often only as memorable as its accommodations and high-tech features, and here is where Escape stands out from other 2019 SUVs.

Under an available Panoramic Vista Roof, 98.7 cubic feet of passenger cabin spread out invitingly, and that roominess is just the beginning. Other options include power-adjustable, heated front seats and dual-zone electronic auto temp control. Plus, for luggage and essentials, you can make use of up to a whopping 68.0 cubic feet of space. It's even accessible quickly from outside via the available hands-free foot-activated liftgate. Bring a roof rack with side rails and available crossbars into the mix. Consider a 2,000-to-3,500-pound max towing capacity when properly equipped with a Class II hitch receiver. The takeaway: you can now bring along that boatload of camping gear, dirt bike, jet ski, or small tent camper you've been hanging onto for a special occasion.

The crossover is also a command center for the trip. 4.2-inch SYNC and 8.0-inch SYNC 3 infotainment systems are available, and you can find options like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for connecting your smartphone to boot. Plus, two available smart-charging USB interfaces simplify keeping it and your other electronics energized. There's SYNC Connect 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot support for Web surfing as well as an available voice-activated navigation system for directional assistance. Opt for a model with a 10-speaker Sony audio system, and you can transform that road mix you've been saving into a travel anthem.
