Ford Escape was the pioneer of the hybrid SUV back in 2005 and with the new generation it intends to go further with the engineering, performance and ecology improvements.
The promise is, also, that this third generation is more fun to drive than ever.

Under the hood Ford installed new units in compliance with the strictest, newest regulations but also with good performance. It starts with the 1.5-liter EcoBoost engine installed on the S, SE and SEL trims. This little unit will be good for 180 HP and 177 lb-ft of torque. Even though it is a small displacement engine, it will have a cylinder deactivation system. Sportiest version will host a 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine and will produce 250 HP and 275 lb-ft of torque.

Since it was launched as an eco-friendly SUV, the new Escape offers a new and innovative generation of hybrid propulsion system based on a 2.5-liter Atkinson cycle engine coupled with a CVT. This version will be FWD-only and will have 198 HP and a maximum 85 mph (137 kph) top speed only with the electric motor. Also, the Escape will be offered as an plug-in hybrid with a 30 miles electric-only range.

The new Escape is equipped as standard with an on-board 4G LTE Wi-Fi modem for up to 10 mobile devices. FordPass Connect gives drivers remote access to the vehicle with the help of their mobile phones.

The third generation of the Escape was a big departure from its previous model.
It was a global car since it had the same shape in Europe, but with a different name. It was also known as the Kuga.

While the first generation of the Escape was like a pile of boxes on top of each other, the second generation featured a sleek design, with long and curved lines. The car was a true small cross-over with a footprint similar to a Ford Focus.

The car was designed in Europe, but it was successful in the U.S. as well. The front fascia featured angled headlights and an aerodynamically enhanced front bumper. The car was 10 percent more aerodynamic than the previous generation. Unlike the other two older versions, which were made together with Mazda, the 2017 model was 100% Ford.

Inside, the new generation of the MyFord Touch was installed. It featured a color screen on top of the center stack and the control buttons were right in front of it. As an option, a Sony premium sound system was on the list. The front seats offered good comfort and some side support due to its bolsters. In the back, there was room for three adults.

Unlike its European brother, it wasn’t fitted with diesel engines. It didn’t feature a V6 or a hybrid version as the second generation of the Escape. But it was fitted with the latest EcoBoost 1.6-liter engine, which was more fuel-efficient than the hybrid and a 2.0-liter EcoBoost that was more powerful than the V6. The base model featured a 2.5-liter inline-four. All versions were mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The automatic all-wheel-drive system transferred the torque from front to rear and from left to right wheels, according to the traction level.

The second generation of the Escape was released in 2008 and was kept in production until 2012.
The muscular SUV got a refreshed design, with a new grille that was similar to the Ford Expedition and the Explorer, only shrunken.

It was the same old platform and the same drivetrains, but had a much cleaner and modern look.

The modernised headlights, the chrome grille, the integrated fog lights and the Escape letters embossed across the bumper made the Escape attract the views of the customers.

From the side, the Explorer was pretty much the 1st generation SUV, with a clearer design. On the top we could see side rails, and side rails are always a good option, because if you later decide to mount them, it’s gonna be a hassle.

In the Back, the Explorer had updated taillights integrated in a clean simple design.

Inside the cabin of the Explorer we found a clean basic layout with improved material quality. Overall, it had a square look to match the outside design.

The Explorer was offered with 3 trim levels, the base XLS, the XLT, the top of the line, a hybrid and a limited hybrid. Lots of options we would say.

The SUV was equipped with power windows, power mirrors, power driver seat, leather seating surfaces (XLT), cruise control, a small lcd with compass, temperature and other audio information, climate control, air conditioning and a bluetooth connection.

The Ford Escape is a compact crossover and the original model was one of America’s favorites.
Released and developed with Mazda – it’s almost the same as car as the Mazda Tribute.

Even if it is a compact SUV, it had the abilities of a larger one, yet it was easier to maneuver and park. The mid-sized model had enough room for 5 people to feel comfortable. The maximum towing capacity for an Escape with a towing package was around 1600kg.

The car is based on a unibody platform and came in two trim levels, XLS and XLT and was available with 2WD or AWD. The car is equipped with a four-wheel-lock system. Under the hood of the Escape we find a 3.0-liter V6 Duratec engine developing 200 hp, which would accelerate the car from 0 to 100 kph (62 mph) in a little over 10 seconds. It comes with an 4-speed automatic transmission, but gears can also be shifted manually.

Another option was a 2.0-L Zetec engine that could produce 130 hp and was more convenient due to its reduced fuel consumption compared to the 3.0-liter.

Some might say that the model was thirsty when it comes to fuel consumption, reaching 14-16L/100 km in regular use. The car was equipped with good safety features including seat-belts pre-tensioners and knee bolsters. All models had dual front airbags and the Limited trim level also had side airbags. The early XLS models did not have ABS.
