Ford's all-new Escape is earning plaudits everywhereâ€”and that includes prestigious automotive organizations. Both J.D. Power and WardsAuto have awarded the compact machine honors this week. J.D. Power has bestowed the 2020 Escape with the top spot among the compact SUV segment in their J.D. Power 2020 APEAL study. The study has measured the level of excitement and emotional connection among vehicle owners across 37 attributes for the past 25 years. This includes power and luxury considerations. The 2020 Escape has also been given two hearty thumbs up from WardAuto. The automotive body includes the crossover among its â€˜10 Best User Experiences' list, citing its driver-assist technologies, including Active Park Assist 2.0 and Adaptive Cruise Control. â€œWhen we reinvented the all-new Ford Escape for 2020, we considered how small SUV customer needs have evolved and pivoted to make Escape an even better urban mobility vehicle that delivers great fuel economy, features advanced technology and is fun to drive,â€ said Mark LaNeve, Ford's vice president, U.S. Marketing, Sales and Service. â€œThat's why we now offer two different hybrid choices, including an all-new plug-in model with best-in-class EPA-estimated 100 MPGe, an available digital instrument panel and SYNC 3 infotainment and second-row legroom that tops larger SUVs'.â€ Ready to get your mitts on a new Escape?
