Completely redesigned for 2013, the Ford Escape is a compact crossover capable of achieving up to 33 miles per gallon.
First debuted in 2000 as a 2001 model, the Ford Escape became a sales phenomenon and remains the best-selling SUV in America. Having been through two generations, the 2013 model year introduces a third and all-new generation for the Escape. The 2013 Escape, slated to launch in April 2012, opens the compact SUV market to advanced technological elements and superior fuel efficiency.
The first difference customers will notice between the new Escape and the old is its body design. Since its inception, the Escape has been a short, boxy compact SUV, reminiscent of other Ford SUV offerings like the Explorer.
With a broad, powerful, and often chrome-clad front grille, the old Escape looked stout and off-road capable. The new Escape carries itself differently. Mimicking the new "One Ford" front fascia, the 2013 Escape's lines are more fluid, sleek and aerodynamic. Ford boasts the new Escape is 10 percent more aerodynamic than the previous model.
