For 2013, Ford engineers designed a new Escape with a Futuristic-like appeal, with an athletic look and everything a shopper wishes from a crossover SUV. This mid-size sport-utility vehicle, which incorporates the latest technology and style, is more like a Ford Explorer’s brother with somehow identical grille with much modern identity.
The 2013 Ford Escape is a five-passenger vehicle and is available in S, SE, SEL, and Titanium trims, in both front-wheel and four-wheel drive. The escape comes with the 168-hp 2.5-liter four-cylinder, and a 173-hp 1.6-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine is also available which boost up up 178 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. Its turbo’s gas mileage of 24/33 mpg trounces the non-turbo four, and outshines that of the Hyundai Tucson and Kia Sportage, and even Honda CR-V’s 22/30 mpg. But for someone who even wants more power, a 237-hp 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine is the right one for you. Every engine choice is combined with a six-speed select-shift automatic transmission.

These are great for people with lots of things to carry in their hands and are unable to open the latch.
