Driving should be a feel-good experience, and at Southern California Ford Dealers, we believe in providing the best of comfort, design, and technology to help amplify your driving experience. We believe that you don’t have to sacrifice style and power to drive a hybrid. If you’re looking for a tough and powerful yet sleek and stylish hybrid, look no further than the 2021 Escape SE Hybrid.
When driving the Escape SE Hybrid, you’ll hardly feel like you’re driving a hybrid at all. The 2.5 L I-4 Atkinson-cycle powertrain houses an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission (eCVT) and a 96 kW electric motor, giving you all the power you never knew you could get from a hybrid. And big power doesn’t have to mean big batteries. The Ford Escape SE Hybrid packs its liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery under the floor of the seats, saving valuable cargo room for inside.
Sometimes you need all-wheel drive to get where you’re going, and other times it can be a drag - literally. The Ford Escape SE Hybrid comes with AWD and AWD disconnect, allowing your car to disable the rear driveline when it’s not needed. So, you can power your way off-road or enjoy a smooth and leisurely drive around the city. The Escape also features five drive modes to choose from (Eco, Sport, Normal, Slippery, and Deep Snow/Sand) to further enhance your driving experience.
Fords are known for their rugged power, and the hybrid model provides nothing less. When properly equipped with the right tow package, the Escape SE Hybrid can tow a maximum of 1500 lbs. Using electricity and helping the environment doesn’t mean having to give up on power.
The Ford Escape SE Hybrid is equipped with Ford Co-Pilot360™, an advanced suite of technology that comes standard on all models to help drivers feel confident and safe on the road. Whether it’s helping adjust suspension and traction off-road or keeping you from accidents on the highway, the technology of the Escape is top-notch and ready to help.
Some of the features of the Ford Escape are:
- Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB)
- BLIS® with Cross-Traffic Alert
- Available Active Park Assist 2.0 with Reverse Parking Aid and Front Parking Aid
- Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go

The Ford Escape SE Hybrid also has a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, allowing you to customize the look and function of your dashboard. You’ll always know where everything is, and you can adjust the size and placement of what matters most to you. You’ll also be able to enjoy the B&O Sound System equipped with ten speakers, a wireless charging pad, hands-free SYNC® 3 technology, 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot with Ford Pass™, and Alexa connectivity.
The Ford Escape SE Hybrid not only drives strong with powerful capabilities and smart technology, but it also looks strong, with a sleek yet powerful design. The interior is built with a sleek rotary gear shift dial that opens space in your center console and improves both driver and passenger comfort. The second row has 60/40 split-fold flat seats that can slide back for extra legroom or forward for additional cargo space.
You can add design features to your car, including a panoramic Vista Roof®, which features a large panel in the front that can both tilt and open fully. You’ll also get a rear skylight to let in more natural light and fresh air. If you’re going for a more sporty look, you can try the SE Sport Appearance Package, including 19-inch Machined-face, Ebony-painted aluminum wheels, front and rear skid plates in black, and more.
The Ford Escape SE Hybrid offers the best-in-class second-row legroom and an interior with extra cargo space for all of your traveling needs. Whether you’re shuffling the kids to after-school activities or enjoying a peaceful drive in the countryside, the ten-speaker sound system will keep you entertained all the way.
The Ford Escape SE Hybrid also has features that help with more than just driving. You can add on the hands-free foot-activated liftgate to make shopping and packing a breeze. And if you live or work in cold conditions, you can choose to add the Cold Weather Package, which includes electronic automatic temperature control with rear air duct, heated front-row seats, heated side-view mirrors, remote start system, and a heated, premium wrapped steering wheel.
