Spy Shots: 2007 Ford Escape

Looks like the next Escape is going for bigger is better, and probably less fuel efficiency.
Ford - please dial 1-800-GETACLUE!

Escape is growing to make a space for EcoSport that is coming in 08.. it will not grow too much though.... and the effect of FE should be minimal...BTW it will be a whole new car. .new platform and all..

I believe this is a repost

I like the front and the tailights seem iteresting too..

I wish ford would change the profiles of their trucks/suv's from one generation to the next.. people get turned off by their SUV's looking too much like the previous generation .... see he new Explorer - greatcar killed by looking like a mere facelift.

007

We are actuall not getting this EcoSport.. we are getting the next gen, which is now in the pipeline with all other cars built on the Fiesta platform..(since tha plantform's lifecycle just ended)

Looks are likely to change considerably for the US market... probably three bar grille, more funky headlights..

Rear mounted full size spare is necessary if you want to keep some trunk space in this class (even Rav4 still keeps it that way and Rav is MUCH bigger)..

And BTW I actually like the way the currnent Gen looks... it is quite Euro looking.

Neither looks as good as the current Escape, IMHO. If Ford would just see fit to paint the bumper covers on ALL the Escapes!

I saw that but there are two problems...

1) I am not sure whether this is the ALL NEW Escape we are supposed to get.. the Aussie release just talks about better nose styling.. while we should get all new car.. inside out and under the metal..

2) Even if it is. .there is a really good chance it will look different.. Actually IT WILL look different... cased on the spy shots..
