We loved our 2019 Escape SE but the newer updated version was working on both of us. I was skeptical of the 3 cyl engine most of all, but once I drove it, I immediately fell in love. That 1.5L 3cyl engine mated to the new 8 speed transmission is impressive to say the least. At idle it shakes a little bit, but right off idle it is smooth as silk and sounds impressive as the RPMs rise to red line... It's way quicker then our 2019, hands down bar none. Faster 0-60, faster passing from 50-80. Just faster all around and it gets better gas mileage. Amazing with this new technology. I did some research and learned that the Crankshaft is forged along with the connecting rods. Same could be true with our 2019 but I could never find it. Anyhow it's a beast. Plenty of room, rides like a dream. Handles amazing. And is very efficient. Ours came with NAV (I hate factory NAV) and it came with adaptive cruise. So it has the 360+ package on it. It creeps me out a bit on the highway because it will totally drive itself. It centers itself in the lane and will keep you there. After about 10 seconds it will ***** at you to grab the wheel, but it's impressive to say the least. Now time for a few gripes.....no power drivers seat, no center drop down console for the rear passengers, no rear HVAC vents, and no auto power up and down windows. It has power down for the drivers side but no auto power up. So Ford cheaped out a bit, depending on the package you get but it's all worth it. Trust me.. and I have no affiliation with Ford.
