Ford has always been a leader in innovation, having created some of the most popular cars, trucks and SUVs in automotive history. To ring in the new decade, Ford engineers set out to deliver the most advanced vehicles on the road; using new frame materials, safety and performance technology, eco-conscious features and modern new interior and exterior styling, the 2020 Explorer and 2020 Escape are poised to be the most sought after SUVs of the year - and we’ve got them at PineRidge Ford!
We had a blast in December cheering on our favourite Ford SUVs at our exclusive Ford vs. Ferrari event, where we rented out a Meadow Lake theater for a private screening of the exciting Ford vs. Ferrari movie and invited our loyal customers to attend for free! It truly felt like we were in the driver’s seat as these iconic Fords kicked some Ferrari tailpipe, and it rejuvenated our love of Ford history, engineering and the quality vehicles that they contribute to the automotive industry. Let’s take a closer look at what’s new for the Explorer and Escape in 2020.
Two different SUVs, both loaded with features and tech designed to bring your comfort, safety and driving experience to the next level. The 2020 Ford Explorer underwent a complete redesign, with bold new exterior styling, sophisticated interior details and adaptable seating for seven that features E-Z entry second row seats and PowerFold third row seats. As versatile and luxurious as Explorer may be, it still packs some serious power under the hood. Two new trim levels, a powerful hybrid and the all-new ST, manage up to 400-hp and 5,600 lbs of towing capacity, while sport-tuned suspension and a Towing and Trailer Sway Control feature to help you feel in control while you’re behind the wheel. Whether you’re hauling the camper or boat to Kimball Lake for a weekend of camping or picking the kids up from hockey practice, the 2020 Explorer is your versatile SUV companion.
The 2020 Escape is Ford’s compact SUV with big power and a small environmental footprint. A selection of regular, hybrid and EcoBoost engine options allows you to choose the horsepower and fuel-economy that will work best for your needs. No matter which trim you choose, all 2020 Escape’s were redesigned to include an innovative lightweight steel frame, a more aerodynamic body shape and five distinct drive modes (Normal, Eco, Sport, Slippery and Snow/Sand) that you can toggle between with the touch of a button, making it one of the most fuel-efficient compact SUVs on the road. The 2020 Escape is an adaptable driving buddy, capable of quick accelerations, slick maneuverability and a comfortable ride for wherever life in Meadow Lake takes you.
Both of these SUVs offer top-of-the-line safety and tech features, a remarkably smooth driving experience and Ford’s unmistakable exterior styling. If you have plans for hauling an RV or boat into the Saskatchewan wilderness regularly, the added towing power of the Ford Explorer might make more sense for you. If you are primarily using your SUV for weekday commuting and running errands around the city, the unbeatable fuel-economy and flexibility of the Escape might be just what you need. No matter which model you choose, you can count on Ford’s legendary craftsmanship and attention to detail they put into every vehicle that comes off the line.
