The all-new 2020 Ford Escape brought home two huge awards during the month of July. In the J.D. Power 2020 APEAL Study, the Escape earned the top spot in its segment. It also earned a comfortable spot on the Wards 10 Best User experiences list.
The APEAL Study stands for The Automotive Performance, Execution, and Layout Study, and uses 40 different factors that combine to determine a driver’s emotional attachment to a certain vehicle. This year, the 2020 Escape was able to grab the fourth spot overall and finished first among compact SUVs. The results of the study show that the Escape is popular because of the exciting driving experience it provides no matter how you intend to use it, making it a top choice for consumers.
The Escape couldn’t stop at just one award, as it was also was able to land on WardsAuto’s 2020 Wards Best User Experiences list. The Wards judges were fans of the Escape’s available 12.3-inch digital cluster display and SYNC® 3 infotainment setup. They mentioned those features as two big reasons they scored the Escape so highly.
WardsAuto judges also mentioned the number of standard features offered by Ford Co-Pilot360™ technologies, making it not only a fun vehicle but a safe one. The blue ambient backlighting, easy-to-use smartphone pairing, and voice commands are the icing on the cake for the judges. All of these features and factors are why the Escape found itself on the list.
