The all-new 2013 Ford Escape rides on a fresh platform, features more modern styling, and has switched to an all-four-cylinder engine strategy. Assembled in Louisville, Kentucky, Ford's smallest crossover SUV is updated with recycled interior materials, an easy-folding backseat, and extra cargo-carrying capacity. Front-wheel drive comes standard but all-wheel drive can be ordered for two out of the three offered engines. The base 2.5-liter four-cylinder making 168 horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque is FWD-only, but Ford is making a big push for its two EcoBoost turbocharged four-cylinders. The 1.6-liter EcoBoost produces 178 hp and 184 lb-ft, and the 2.0-liter EcoBoost generates 240 hp and 270 lb-ft. Premium-octane gas is recommended to extract best performance from the EcoBoosts, but will run on regular. All three engines are mated to 6-speed automatic transmissions. The best EPA-certified fuel economy comes from the 23/33 mpg city/highway of the front-drive, 1.6-liter Escape, while the worst is the all-wheel-drive, 2.0-liter combination good for 21/28 mpg city/highway. Notable optional features include a hands-free power liftgate activated by waving a foot under the rear bumper and a Blind Spot Information System. Six airbags and stability control come standard. The Ford Escape is covered by a 3-year/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty. See more... See Less
