The Ford Escape Gets A New Look For 2023

The Ford Escape is one vehicle that rings a bell when you desire a non-luxury compact crossover that boasts handsome styling and a comfortable ride.

The Escape has received some exciting upgrades for the new model year, including a revised exterior and an interior with a more modern look and feel. If you’ve ever thought of leasing the latest Ford Escape, this review walks you through the significant changes for 2023.

Engine And Performance

The Escape is renowned for its extensive powertrain options, which start with the base 180-hp 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder and maxes out with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that churns out 250 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque. The Escape also offers hybrid and plug-in hybrid models featuring a 2.5-liter four-cylinder and two electric motors. The hybrid puts out 192 horsepower, and the plug-in hybrid is suitable for 210 horses. Both hybrids are mated to a continuously variable automatic transmission and front-wheel drive, with all-wheel drive optional on the regular hybrid models. While the two non-hybrid engines pair with an eight-speed automatic transmission, the 250-hp turbo-4 also features steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters and standard all-wheel drive.

Fuel Economy

For the gas-only engines, the standard three-cylinder with front-wheel drive achieves the best EPA rating at 27 mpg city and 33 mpg highway. On the electrified side of things, EPA has yet to release its official rating, but the most fuel-efficient will likely be the plug-in hybrid.


Typical of Ford lease deals, the new Escape features a restyled, elegant cabin brimming with essential tech and convenience amenities. Cloth seats are standard on the base trim, while shoppers can opt for synthetic leather seats on higher trims. The infotainment system includes an 8.0-inch touchscreen display standard on the entry-level trim and an enhanced 12.3-inch touchscreen display available from the Active trim. Both systems run Ford’s latest sync 4 infotainment software and are equipped with Apple Carplay and Android Auto integration. Other optional features include a Head-up display, a 10-speaker Bang & Olufsen stereo system, a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, etc.

Safety And Driver Assistance

The newly-refreshed Escape comes generously equipped with Ford’s essential safety and driver assistance tech. However, some advanced features are available on upper trims or optional packages. Highlights of the 2023 Ford Escape include;

  • Pre-collision assist with automatic emergency braking
  • Blind spot information system with rear cross-traffic braking
  • Enhanced active parking assist
  • Intelligent adaptive cruise control
  • Evasive steering assist
  • Rearview camera
  • Lane-keeping system
  • Built-in navigation
  • Auto high beams, etc.
