The holidays are fast approaching and you might be anticipating getting together with your extended family, even with social distancing in place. You might want to avoid planes and trains and take a drive with the kids.
If so, consider getting behind the wheel of a 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid. There’s a lot to like about this SUV, starting with its exceptional fuel efficiency.
2020 Ford Escape Hybrid
The Escape Hybrid has been rated the best-in-class combined highway and city EPA-estimated fuel economy of 41 mpg. The redesigned front-wheel drive compact SUV also tops its class with an EPA-estimated 44 mpg city driving.
When you think about it, you could probably do a 400-mile drive on a single tank of gas. While spending less on fuel is a nice perk for your wallet, fewer pit stops at service stations might not make the kids too happy. Still, the fuel economy and EcoBoost technology is a bonus. Remember to pack a cooler with snacks for hungry little ones.
The 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid is available with all-wheel-drive for difficult terrain.
This SUV has as much interior cabin room as earlier models. The liquid-cooled, lithium-ion battery sits neatly beneath the second-row seats, unlike other hybrids where the battery takes up precious cargo space.
For those long drives, it is important to have a decent entertainment system. The Escape comes standard with AM/FM stereo with 6 speakers, Sirius Satellite Radio, Sync 3 software accessed by a touch screen with enhanced voice recognition. Sync 3 also brings you connectivity with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Of course, the Escape Hybrid is equipped with all the standard Ford safety features that you come to expect for your family. This package includes Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane-Keeping System, and BLIS® with Cross-Traffic Alert, to name a few.
