When we were trying out the Focus and getting ready to order, I asked the salesman about the 2013 Escape. Since we had a 2003 Escape, I was asking him when he would have one since they were supposed to be on sale this spring. He then told me they had moved deliveries to July 2012 "probably" because they had so many Escapes on the lot. One dealer I went to, who didn't get our business, had 60 Escapes on the lot!!! This is the first time I have seen it moved to 2013 now.

Yes, I have seen this build site for several weeks but this is the first time I have ever noticed 2013.

The price doesn't seem to have increased that much and I'm sure it's drastically improve.

It's been chilling at the bottom. I have been watching it closely. I wish the ST would beat it to the lot but I don't think I'm going to win that discussion with my wife

We will start to see these on the lot near the end of May/first of June. Ordered units the end of June/early July. Job 1 is a few weeks away.

The order bank has been open for a little over a month now.

Owner's manual is up on the motorcraft site.

I see Spring 2012. Possibly updated. I think the date of first manufacture, Job1, is April 9, 2012. Therefore, expect to see the escape at the dealer in June, July based on recent new Ford introductions to market.

I am disappointed with the new Escape. Now Ford officially only makes cars and crossovers. There are no real utility vehicles left. (apart from trucks, but I don't include those)

No manual either, its based on the Focus so really how hard would it be to put the 5m in there?

In the fact that they are roughly the same size, yes...
