2021 Ford Escape comes next year as a fully redesigned model, with a new design of the chassis, a new engine under the hood, and possibly a hybrid engine as one of the offers. The designer of the model, Andrew Bazinski, said that he involved exciting changes in the design of the model.
As the opposite of the old models, this time, it could take ideas from Porsche 911, for example, giving to the model more attractiveness and modernity. It also points at the possible changes in the engine since new chassis ask for changes under the hood.
- The model is modernized and follows changes in the design of the competition.
- There are high engines, including a hybrid one.
- The cabin is small.
- There are no changes in technology.
The significant change in the 2021 Ford Escape is visible on the exterior design. Since the designer had great inventions and ideas in that field, the manufacturer has high expectations from the model in the future. Although we were able to see new Ford Bronco on test driving, in unique boxy and not much modern shape, new Escape should look much different.
It is sportier, with rounded and soft edges and new lights. In spite of the same platform that both vehicles share, Escape should be much more aesthetic and aerodynamic than Bronco.
When it comes to the hybrid model, it could look a little different, but not too much. Designers will not make it be futuristic and too weird in that part. It should be more like Toyota RAV4 Hybrid or similar models that are attractive and green at the same time.
The cabin in 2021 Ford Escape should not make so many surprises. There is no information and photos of it. However, we are sure that the cabin will look the same as before. It means that the cabin should be small but functional as before.
The changes in the design of the chassis should not significantly change the design and size of the space inside. As the opposite, it could slightly shrink it due to soft edges at the rear end.
There are no many surprises under the hood of the 2021 Ford Escape. It should have a 1.5-liter three-cylinder turbocharged engine with 180-horsepower, along with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol model that produces 250 horsepower.
However, the model should have a hybrid model, which is a potent 2.5-liter four-cylinder version with 198 horsepower. As if that is not enough, they will offer a plug-in hybrid engine, too, and its 209 horsepower. It should come paired with a 14.4-watt battery. Unfortunately, batteries are heavy, so this model will be heavy and has much slower performance.
2021 Ford Escape Release Date and Price
2021 Ford Escape is still in the test phase, but they expect that we could see it very soon on the saloons. The base model should cost around $25,000, which is not much different from last year’s model and evidently not much higher than models in this class.
However, new buyers will be satisfied with the changes in design, and also novelties under the hood. On the other hand, you will see that changes in design will not significantly change the position of the vehicle on the market.
