Wink 1.6L Ecoboost vs 2.0L Ecoboost - actual power and fuel mileage

I am looking for experience from SE/SEL and Platinum owners, or if you have driven both side by side.

How is the power difference between the 2.0L and 1.6L ECOBOOST? Do you find the 1.6L lacking in power? How is the 2.0L when merging on the freeway or passing someone? Does it struggle?

What about gas mileage? How is the 1.6L vs the 2.0L in real life?

I appreciate it!

I wouldn't even go near the 1.6 2.0 is perfect very fast you can wheel and deal when you buy one just tell them you don't want to pay they extra for the upgrade the 2.0 comes with a more heavy duty transmission for towing standard

2.0 hands down. We get upper 20's mpg on the highway with the 4wd. Plus it has all the power you will ever need in every day driving.

Thank you for the advice. Any 1.6L owners want to chime in on the mileage and power?

1.6L is just fine for daily use and highway driving. I am getting 30 MPG 65 percent highway and 35 percent city. Very pleased with it.

Thanks

I would agree, the 1.6 is fine for me. I use mine about the same percentages and haul computer equipment from one site to another. I sometimes have so much equipment (and it's heavy stuff) that I have to fold the rear seats to hold it all.

I've also had five people and luggage filling my Escape and it does just fine.

Angry SE with 201A pakage

Got mine for 29500 freight included +taxes SE 1.6 fwd with myford touch,heated seats,roof rack etc. no full tank and no all weather mats annoying. I guess they took advantage of me because im a first time buyer and i just migrated here in Canada a year ago. I got no credit lines so they use that as reason where ever dealership i went. But i got approved with out some one co signing for me.

What are the differences in the transmission? Is it the same model as the 1 6 but with other options.. I know the towing package adds a transmission cooler..

We have a 1.6L and like it a lot. We have 3000 miles on it and get 26mpg combined driving (MPG is creeping up) I have changed the oil twice.(once at 400 and once at 3000 and will change to Mobil 1 at 6000) Only problem is filter is a real pain to get to compared to the 2.0L. For us it has plenty of power, actually it is pretty snappy.

2.0 EB owner here. I drove both prior to purchase and did not extensively test the 1.6 but during my brief test I did not note a lack of power in the 1.6. But I do love the power of the 2.0, truly fun to drive. If my commute was very long I would have given more thought to the bottom line fuel economy difference between the 1.6 and 2.0 EB. I have zero regrets with my purchase.
