2013 Ford Escape Spied With Minimal Camo Prior to L.A. Debut





Additional camouflage has dropped from prototypes of Ford’s upcoming 2013 Escape, revealing more than ever just ahead of the crossover’s L.A. auto show debut next month. What has emerged, it seems, is an evolutionary design of the outgoing European Ford Kuga, which itself looks like the lovechild of the new Focus and a Toyota RAV4. We had kind of hoped that Ford’s first “world” crossover would retain more of the character of the Vertrek concept—which previewed this model—than apparently it will.

An interior shot provides a glimpse of tunneled gauges and a center stack arrangement much like that of other recent new Fords. A screen appears tucked deep inside a binnacle at the top-dead center of the dash. Don’t look for the capacitive touch controls like those found on the Explorer/Edge inside this particular Escape; this prototype features buttons all the way, and lots of them. That said, we expect that a (hopefully much-improved) version of MyFord Touch will be offered. As we previously reported, Ford has confirmed that the Escape will be powered solely by four-cylinder engines and will offer no hybrid option.

Given that the only Escape Americans know is a squared-off box on wheels that dates back to 2001, this new one will probably be well-received. Anyone who’s been to Europe and seen a Kuga, however, may be less surprised that Ford can pump out a cute ute that’s handsome and decent to drive. We’ll have the full details and an undisguised look at the 2013 Escape in the coming days.

Posted via FF Mobile Ill reserve 100% opinion till it officially comes out, but looks like the only place youll be Escaping to is the supermarket. Ashame...Ford kinda needs some more things that go off road, ya know, because thats where SUVs belong.

Yeah I guess, but let's be honest... how many of the current Escape owners are taking the thing off road? Anyone that does is almost certainly in the minority. Ford is just tailoring the vehicle for what the majority of buyers are using it for.
