Slow and steady, 2.5 hands down.

Even though the 1.5/1.6 Ecoboost are similarly rated HP and Torque, they are much more pleasant to drive, and 2.0 is much better still. However there are some common issues with all those I4 GTDI engines that make reliability lower than the 2.5.

My 2015 Fusion SE has the 2.5. It sounds like a tractor, gains speed like a tractor (all sound, but no go to go along with it), it struggles at higher elevations (it lives at 5500 ft). My 2017 Escape with the 1.5, while anything but speedy is still way more responsive.
