Popular and in stock:
The carryover 2019 Escape remains on sale in good numbers. The mid-level SE and top-shelf Titanium models are generally easiest to find, whereas base S and upper-middle SEL versions tend to be scarce.
The SE and SEL gain push-button start with remote activation, and navigation is now exclusive to the Titanium.
The redesigned 2020 Escape has started flowing into dealers. All models gain Ford's Co-Pilot360 driver assist system and cylinder deactivation for enhanced efficiency. The Titanium features a new 2.0-liter turbo engine. For the first time, there are hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions of the Escape, the latter capable of traveling 30 miles on electricity alone.
Current factory offers vary by region and will expire January 2, 2020 unless otherwise noted. Examples shown here are for California. It's likely Ford will enhance incentives for Black Friday.
Up to $4,750 off:
Every 2019 Escape comes with a $2,750 rebate for all buyers, but that's just for starters.
There's a $500 Select Inventory bonus on models in stock longer than 61 days, and buyers with a vehicle to trade are eligible for a $1,500 trade-in bonus. That brings your potential savings on a new Escape to a hefty $4,750. Note that trade-in bonus is scheduled to expire November 13. We expect Ford to either new it then or offer something similar.
As for the incoming 2020 Escape, Ford offers a $500 rebate on all models except the base, as well as the $500 Select Inventory bonus.
Terrific lease value:
Once again, you can lease a 2019 Escape SE from $209 for 36 months (10,500 miles year) with $2,959 due at signing. The effective monthly cost is $291, an exceptional value for this price class.
This offer reflects the $1,500 trade-in bonus. The cash at signing will be $1,500 higher without this bonus.
Leases in the 2020 Escape start at $339 for 39 months with $2,608 at signing. The effective monthly cost works out to $406, which is quite expensive for this price class. You can count on rapid improvement in the months ahead.
0% APR + cash:
In place of the standard rebate on a 2019 Escape, you can get 0% financing for 60 months, or 1.9% for 72 months. You remain eligible for the $1,500 conquest bonus.
Promotional rates on the 2020 Escape range from 0.9% for 36 months to 2.9% for 60 months, without any bonus cash.
