The Ford Escape: Ready to Tackle Life in Zanesville, OH and Beyond

When it comes to versatility and offering the latest tech and safety features, the new Ford Escape has you covered. It is a well-rounded SUV with several strong powertrains to choose from. At Dutro Ford Lincoln, we have the inside scoop on what you can expect from the new Escape.

What's New for the Ford Escape?

The Escape was recently completely redesigned. It is loaded with more tech and convenience features than ever before. As a result, the only significant change for this model year was the addition of a few more paint options. You can now select Iced Blue, Flight Blue, or Atlas Blue for your Escape to show off in Zanesville, OH.


A turbocharged 1.5L three-cylinder engine is the standard for new Escape models. The SUV uses it to create 181-horsepower and 190 lb-ft of torque, and the engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. If you are after the best possible fuel efficiency for your busy life around town, you will choose the hybrid setup. A 2.5L four-cylinder works with an electric motor to put out 200-horsepower. This engine moves along with a continuously variable transmission. Select models can go for a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder, with the Escape making 250-horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque.

Driver-Assistance Features

Lane departure mitigation, a feature that will correct steering if the Escape starts to drift over the lane markings, comes standard on all trim levels. Also found on all models are the popular driver aids blind-spot monitoring and forward-collision mitigation. When you choose certain versions of the Escape for your commutes, you also get evasive steering assist and adaptive cruise control. A head-up display, traffic sign recognition, rear parking sensors, and lane centering assist are also available.

Technology Features

An onboard Wi-Fi hotspot comes standard on all new Escape models, plus a six-speaker audio system. Starting with the SE trim level, this vehicle has smartphone integration with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, plus a beautiful 8-inch touchscreen. All Escape models have USB ports in the front, and the SE and higher also add extras for the backseat passengers. If technology is your main priority, know that select trims come with navigation, a wireless charging pad, and a premium B&O sound system to enjoy in Coshocton.


The Ford Escape has sleek lines and a bold front design, helping drivers make an entrance. Consider adding the SE Sport Appearance package if you want an even more athletic look for your SUV.
