Selectable Drive Modes - 2023 Ford Escape

In a Ford Escape, generate the drive experience you crave, or the one that conditions demand, with easy-to-use Selectable Drive Modes. Easily select the mode and the powertrain fine-tunes traction control, steering and pedal response, and available Intelligent AWD to help provide a spectacular driving experience. View 3D animations on the available 13″ digital instrument cluster change based on the drive mode you select.

Ford Escape Plug-in Hybrid models feature 4 EV modes, allowing you to decide how you want to use the electric power. In Auto EV, the vehicle decides whether to run on gas or electric power. EV Now mode is for all-electric operation. EV Later preserves plug-in energy for later use. In EV Charge mode, drivers can continue to charge the battery while driving, and generate electric-only miles to use later, such as during city driving.

  • Normal Drive Mode

You’ll probably spend the most time here. Ideal for everyday driving on wet or dry paved roads. A balance of power, convenience, and gas mileage.

  • Slippery Drive Mode
For better handling on surfaces covered with ice, water, grass or gravel, this mode adjusts the pedal response and traction control.
  • Sport Drive Mode
Increases throttle response, provides quicker shifts for a more aggressive feel, and allows the transmission to hold shifts longer to help accelerate faster when shifting. For more “sporty” on-road driving.
  • Eco Drive Mode

Exactly as it sounds. Eco helps maximize efficiency and increase driving range and excellent gas mileage.
