Hi, my name is Justin Robinson and I’m a Sales and Leasing Representative here at Oakridge Ford. With the complete redesign for 2020, the Ford Escape launches back into the crossover segment with incredible momentum, offering a completely new aerodynamic design, new tech and toys on the inside PLUS the revival of the Escape Hybrid. But today, I want to focus on this SEL, which blends the all the functionality of the Escape with some of the luxuries you will love.
Under the hood of this All-New Ford Escape SEL you’ll find a 1.5L EcoBoost Engine with Auto Start-Stop Technology paired with an 8-Speed Automatic Transmission. It’s got 181 horsepower and the transmission paired with the all-new cylinder deactivation feature means that you’re going to get where you’re going with fuel to spare!
Looks wise is where the All-New Escape really differentiates itself! It’s got more rounded headlights that wrap all the way around the side and it has a brand-new stance as well – The Escape is one inch longer, wider and shorter meaning more stability and smoothness in your ride. Around back the LED tail lamps with gloss black trim really pop, and the Escape word mark between them is very reminiscent of luxury brands – and you can open it with ease with the Available Hands-Free, Foot-Activated Lift-gate.
The interior – wow. It’s fully premium, unbelievably comfortable, tech-forward and all that with best in class legroom. Heated front seats help keep you and your passenger comfortable no matter what nature brings and the remote start that comes available with Ford Pass Connect will make sure it’s already nice and cozy for you by the time you get in! The ActiveX seating material is a high-end durable material designed with luxury in mind but has the ability to withstand even the harshest treatment.
I mentioned it in passing before, but the all-new Ford-Pass Connect really is a standout feature in the Ford world. It’s a modem embedded within your Ford vehicle to connect it to the internet and provides functionality such as Live Traffic information, system software updates as well as turn your vehicle into a Wi-Fi Hotspot. The Fordpass App pairs seamlessly with your car too, giving you the ability to search for gas prices, nearby parking, receive Vehicle Health Alerts such as recall notices and allows you check all your fluid and air pressure levels in the vehicle using just your phone!
The all-new Sync 3 software is designed like a mobile phone, with ease of use and speed being the key design elements. With a touch of the screen or even just using your voice, almost every operating feature on the vehicle is easily reachable.
As a part of its commitment to safety, Ford has put Ford Co-Pilot360 in all trim levels of the Escape! It includes Auto High-Beam Headlamps, BLIS® with Cross-Traffic Alert, Lane-Keeping Alert, Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, Pedestrian Detection, Forward Collision Warning with Dynamic Brake Support, Rear View Camera and Post Collision Braking.
As I said before the 2020 Ford Escape SEL is an amazing luxury SUV crossover with style, elegance, power and technology and the flexibility to maximize your space for cargo or passengers! Thanks for watching -but honestly, the best way to experience the all new Escape is to take a test drive and there is no better place than down here at Oakridge Ford to do so – so what are you waiting for?!
Thanks again for watching, have a great day!
