2013 Ford Escape Review and Specs
2013 Ford Escape will be based on Ford Kuga, a compact crossover SUV sold in Europe, which again features platform for Ford focus. This augurs well for the next Ford Escape as you want it to be blessed with more Sports and sharp styling. As such, it will be replaced with a more sculptures crossover-style form with a curved line, tag and a kicked up beltline square-rigged SUV-style look the current Escape.
2013 Ford Escape be shorter in height, but otherwise larger than the outgoing version. The wheelbase will be extended by nearly 7 inches, and total length increases by about 4 inches width will increase by about 3 inches, so expect a much more spacious environment for second-row passengers.
Although the Kuga have a turbo diesel engine as an option, the one that offers the States won ‘t. And unlike the current escape, there will be no optional V6. Instead, we expect a choice of four-cylinder engines which will include turbocharged (EcoBoost), direct-injected, 1.6 and 2.0-liter units to respectable performance along with high fuel efficiency. There would also be a normal aspirated 2.5-litre inline-4 Powertrain on the roster as well. We expect an automatic engine start/stop function (such as what seen in various mild hybrid vehicles) will be marked as well. Ford claims that this feature can increase fuel efficiency by up to 5% in normal driving and even more pressure in stop-and-go traffic.
Featuring a high-tech electronically controlled continuously variable transmission (CVT), 2013 Ford Escape is available either with a front-wheel drive or four wheel drive. He is no hyperbole if someone says that the 2013 Escape SUV may win over SUV-lovers and haters alike, due to its impressive features and specs. Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, Chevrolet Equinox and Hyundai Santa Fe are some of the closest competitors to 2013 Ford Escape.
