CarsDirect managed to get the order guides for the 2020 Escape, which reveals that the pricing will start at $25,980, including the destination fees. That’s a $780 increase over the pricing for the 2019 model. The gas-powered 2020 Escape will be offered in S, SE, SEL and Titanium trim levels. The S, SE and SEL come standard with a 1.5L EcoBoost that generates 180 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque, while the SEL and Titanium models are available with a more powerful 2.0L EcoBoost four-cylinder with 250 hp and 275 lb-ft.
If you want a greener option, the Escape Hybrid is powered by a 2.5L powertrain that generates a combined 198 hp and it’s available in the SE Sport and Titanium models.
With a starting price at $25,980, the 2020 Escape is cheaper than the Toyota RAV4 LE, but slightly pricier than the Honda CR-V LX. The most expensive version will be the Escape Titanium with the 2.0L engine, which is priced at $37,780, while the Titanium Hybrid is slightly cheaper at $35,995. We don’t have the pricing yet for the Escape Plug-in Hybrid, but it isn’t slated to arrive until next spring.
