Can't be any worse than a 2.7L in a 5,500 pound F150.

The 2.7 does quite well in the F150.

Engine is rated at 123hp for a 1.0L
That’s pretty stout per liter. All things equal a Ford 5.0L would be right at 615hp.

my brother has a f150 with the 2.7 and its quick pickup, it also pulls his 28 foot camper around just fine.

I might get one like it someday.


I'd buy Callahan autoparts if I could.

An escape is a car. It’s not some heavy duty tow mobile.

I've rented a number of Ford cars with the 1.0L 3 cylinder. None of them are particularly fast, guessing 10 seconds 0-60. They seem to do well on fuel, and I do like the sound.

Although, I probably would not purchase one, as I like a bit more power.

Nor
Does it come equipped from the factory with a 1.0L
3 cylinder engine

Sales of the new Escape are going to nose dive IMHO-and it just isn't the motor size that is the issue.......

The 1.0 works great in my Fiesta. It is quick enough to be fun, sounds way better than a 4 cylinder, and can regularly beat the EPA highway rating of 41 MPG.
In a larger vehicle hooked to an automatic, I imagine it is significantly less impressive.

Ford doesn’t offer the 1.0 Ecoboost in the 2020 Escape.
The engine offerings are the 2.5 Atkinson Hybrid, The 1.5 Ecoboost 3 cylinder (Dragon) and the 2.0 Ecoboost in the Titanium.

While we all now understand something is wrong with this post (the 1.0 engine is not available in the Escape) I must say the 1.0 in an EcoSport is probably better than the 2.5 in my Escape. It's slow, unrefined, and sounds lame.

I have the 1.0 Turbo (and 6-speed Manual) in my 2015 Focus. Plenty quick with the manual trans when you can rev it. 2nd gear is excellent around town when you’re under 45 MPH or so.

It’s been flawless since new - currently at 87,000 miles. 53 MPG is my best tank on 55-60 MPH highways.

It was also the lightest 3rd Gen Focus (2,899 lbs) so the handling is excellent.

Also, there’s absolutely no more vibration than any 4 or 6 cylinder car I’ve owned or driven. FAR smoother and more refined than the 2018 Corolla I rented a couple years ago.


Whatever's on sale...

swept volume and torque curve shold never be confused for each other. If 1.0 is too small, how about an emissions era 5.0 V8 with 185hp?? It's not about swept volume, its about torque curve and gear ratios.

That's largely correct. The old saying of "there is no substitute for cubic inches" is an absurdity today. Turbocharging when done correctly often makes for a better vehicle. (as you might have guessed, I'm a huge fan) . So much so that nearly every vehicle I've owned in the last 30 years have been turbocharged. I even owned an XN-85 Suzuki motorcycle.

Funny though, I'm actually considering a C7 Corvette.
