The fourth generation Escape brings back the powertrain taxi drivers found durable and efficient- the hybrid. This time around there’s a plug-in version that Ford claims will cover 30 miles on electric power alone. Tom Voelk travels to Louisville, Kentucky to see if the hybrid is fun and frisky or slow and pokey. Tom attended a manufacturer’s event to cover the 2020 Escape. Ford provided transportation and lodging. Opinions remain fully independent.
