2020 Escape Towing and Performance Features

Performance is clearly a priority for the 2020 Escape, especially as compared with competing SUVs. The Escape’s towing capacity and overall capabilities get a boost from the following features:

  • All-Wheel Drive Disconnect: Rather than engage all-wheel drive at all times and drastically lower fuel economy returns, this system activates only when needed. In optimal road conditions, only the front wheel propel the vehicle to ensure efficiency.
  • Selectable Drive Modes: Toggle between Sport, Eco, Normal, Slippery, and Deep Snow/Sand drive modes for the best handling possible on Garden City streets. Deep Snow/Sand mode, in particular, proves ideal during Winnipeg winters!
  • AdvanceTrac® with RSC® (Roll Stability Control): Road conditions have a major impact on how well we can control our vehicles. This system corrects slippage and steering issues in poor road conditions to help you maintain control.
  • Trailer Sway Control: There’s nothing more difficult than trying to remain in control of your trailer when it’s seemingly operating on its own. This system restabilizes and corrects potential sway to keep your SUV and trailer in sync.
