2013 Ford Escape SE Reviews, Specs, and Pricing

Ford Escape is know as Ford Kuga in Europe.

The 2013 Ford Escape represents a complete makeover for Ford##Q##s most popular SUV, with a new body, interior and powertrain. About the only thing that remains of the old Escape is the name, and as this is a global product now, even that isn##Q##t universal.

Ford announced today the prices and specifications of the new 2013 Kuga facelift for the UK market. In comparison to the previous model, the 2013 Ford Kuga comes with a fresh new exterior styling, with larger air vents, LED DRLs, new headlights, a re-styled bonnet and a modified front grille. The rear of the new Ford Kuga (2013) shows a new set of tail lights and a modified bumper

The 2013 Ford Escape will start hitting showrooms in the late spring/early summer of 2012, with base prices from $22,470 to $30,370. Three different engines are available: a 2.5-liter I-4 (22 mpg city/ 31 mpg highway); a 1.6-liter EcoBoost I-4 (22 mpg city/30 mpg highway); and a 2.0-liter EcoBoost I-4 (22 mpg city/30 mpg highway).

Ford is going to sell the 2013 Kuga with a range of engines, including a 1.6T EcoBoost with either 150 PS or 180 PS and a 2.0TDCi that will come with 140 PS or 163 PS.

Both AWD and FWD versions of the Kuga are going to be made
available. For increase fuel economy and to reduce the crossover##Q##s CO2 emissions, Ford is offering the new Kuga (2013) with a Start/Stop system. The 2013 Ford Kuga comes with a comprehensive range of equipment, including Ford SYNC with Audible Text Messaging and Emergency Assist, Visual AWD Monitor, Electronic Power Assisted Steering, Hill Start Assist and enhanced Cruise Control with Active Speed Limiter.

The SUV is also equipped with fold-flat seats, reclining rear seats, and an adjustable load floor. For increase safety, Ford is able to equip the 2013 Kuga with the parallel parking aid Active Park Assist and a Blind Spot Information System.

Escape shares no sheetmetal with the outgoing model, nor does it share a powertrain.

The base price for the Ford Escape SE is $25,070, which is $11,685 less expensive than the average for all SUV / Crossover Cars.

Vehicle Type
This 4-Door SUV / Crossover seats 5 passengers. Available with AWD / 4×4 and FWD, the drivetrain in the 2013 Escape SE sends power to the wheels through a standard 6-speed Automatic (with manual mode) transmission.

Gas Mileage
The Ford Escape/Kuga SE achieves 22 MPG in the city, which is 29.4% higher than the average for all SUV / Crossover Cars, and 30 MPG on the highway, which is 25% higher than the average for all SUV / Crossover Cars.

Power & Torque
The Escape SE has a peak horsepower output of 173 HP, which is 37.3% less than the average for all SUV / Crossover Cars. Maximum torque available is 184 ft-lbs, which is 29.2% less than the average for all SUV / Crossover Cars.

It##Q##s a completely new crossover bearing the old vehicle##Q##s name, and hopefully for Ford, a good share of its good will.

The Kuga/Escape is a good, refined car, but one that struggles to stand out compared with the already very good opposition. It looks good, but nowhere near as good as a (far more expensive) Range Rover Evoque or even, whisper it, a (cheaper) Kia Sportage, and it doesn’t have the desirability of either the Rangey or the VW Tiguan.

5-liter supercharged V8 engine and will reach 60 mph in 4.0 seconds, and a top speed of 186 mph (electronically limited)2. The F-TYPE S Coupe and F-TYPE Coupe are powered by 3-liter supercharged V6 engines in 380hp and 340hp forms respectively, giving 0-60 mph in 4.8/5.1 seconds and top speeds of 171/161 mph2.

The F-TYPE Coupe visual message is defined by three key ‘heart lines’, that visual message beginning with the formidable grille. It is from the twin ‘shark gill’ openings that sit either side of the grille that the essential first heart line – which mirrors the design of the F-TYPE Convertible – flows and begins to take shape. Running up through the headlamp, and accentuated by the LED ‘J blade’ signature running lamps, the line then arcs up over the front wheel arch before dropping elegantly as it runs through the door, washing out into the muscular rear haunch.

The second heart line begins at the rear edge of the door, swelling outwards and upwards to create a visually strong wheel arch, emphasizing the car’s rear-wheel drive layout, before dropping vertically through the tail lamp ...
