2021 Ford Escape Hybrid

Powertrains and Hybrid Technology

The 2021 Escape has a choice of hybrid* or plug-in hybrid with a 2.5L iVCT Atkinson-cycle hybrid engine. A 1.5L EcoBoost® and the 2.0L EcoBoost with Auto Start-Stop Technology are the available gas engines.

*See a Ford EV-certified dealer for details. Plug-in Hybrid available spring 2021.

Hybrid 2.5L iVCT Atkinson-Cycle I-4 Engine

The 2.5L I-4 Atkinson-cycle powertrain features an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission (eCVT) and an 88 kW electric motor. Also, the all-new Escape Hybrid packages its liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery smartly outside of the passenger compartment below the floor of the second-row seats rather than occupying a significant portion of the cargo area. The briefcase-shaped battery in the standard hybrid measures less than one-third the size of the previous-generation Escape Hybrid battery. Standard on all Escape Hybrid* and Plug-in Hybrid models.

Plug-In 2.5L iVCT Atkinson-Cycle I-4 Engine

The 2021 Escape Plug-in Hybrid* has a Level 1/Level 2 AC charging port. Using a 110-volt Level 1 charger, the estimated time to fully charge the battery is 10 to 11 hours. Using a 240-volt Level 2 charger, charge time drops to roughly 3.5 hours. What's more, the design of the 2021 Escape allows for the battery to be stored underneath the passenger compartment, which frees up space in the cabin, offering plug-in customers more room with no humps from the battery.
