The new Escape is based on the European Kuga, which shares its platform with the Focus. The 2.0L ecoboost is the same engine that is currently in the Explorer and Edge, and will also be introduced in the 2013 Ford Fusion, 2013 Ford Taurus, and the 2013 Ford Focus ST. The base engine is a carry-over 2.5L i4 port injected engine, and the 1.6L ecoboost i4 has been installed in the european focus for at least 1-2 years. The 2.0L GTDI (Gasoline Turbocharged Direct Injection) EcoBoost engine will make close to the same power as the old 3.0L v6 did in the Escape, meaning that performance isn't likely to suffer too gravely from this decision, and fuel economy should be better when off of boost/ cruising due to direct injection and having fewer cylinders to feed.
