Just in time for auto show season, Ford introduced its highly anticipated redesign, the 2013 Ford Escape. The new Escape was introduced to audiences at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Those attending LAAS were pleasantly surprised by a great number of updated models coming from Ford within the next few years.

Escape has been called the "Smarter Utility Vehicle" by some in the automotive press. This is thanks to its many tech gadgets within, as well as the use of advanced Ecoboost technology - which brings engine power while saving on fuel mileage.
"We call our all-new Ford Escape the 'Smarter Utility Vehicle' because it offers the strengths that customers today really value - fuel economy, versatility and new technology that makes driving and living with the vehicle easier and more fun - all wrapped in a sleek, more modern design," said Derrick Kuzak, VP of Global ProduVPct Development.1
Escape will come with optional 2.0-liter or 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine. Official EPA ratings have yet to be determined, however, Ford estimates the new Escapes will be up to 5 miles per gallon more efficient than today's model. The redesigned Escape is also 10% more aerodynamic.
