To replace the Escape hybrid drive train. The 1.6L Ecoboost is supposed to get as good or better overall mileage. When the hybrid system was redesigned for the Fusion and C-Max, the Escape wasn't in the plan.

Bridgend, Wales. So far it's only engines shipped to the US.

Damn right he does. Ford Europe standards need to be brought up to US standards. If the plan is for a global, One Ford approach, the shoddy workmanship and arrogant attitude needs to addressed.
