In the final model years of its current design, the Ford Escape has been breaking sales records including a record year in 2011 and a record first quarter so far in 2012, and Ford is poised to continue the success of the Escape with an all-new design for 2013 that has recently been its official fuel economy estimates by the EPA. The 2013 Ford Escape will be offered with three four-cylinder engines (including two EcoBoost engines) with all delivering at least 30 mpg on the highway. Unlike the previous Escape, the new model will not be offered with a V-6 engine.
“The fuel economy of the all-new Escape showcases the continued success of Ford’s development of smaller, yet more powerful engines,” said Raj Nair, group vice president, Ford Global Product Development. “Ford understands people want fuel-efficient vehicles without sacrificing power and space requirements.”
