2013 Ford Escape [w/video]

Don't Call It A Comeback In the music industry, a band's third album is typically make-or-break. You start with the debut album, introducing the general public to the band's polished works, then comes the sophomore record, which proves whether or not the band can keep its fan base happy and gain more traction in the music scene. But the third album must show if that band's sound and style has a good enough mix of individual flare and mainstream appeal to keep them successful in the long-run. If you think about it, the same can be said about the automotive landscape, and for the... Read More

    Spy Shots: Is Lincoln getting its own version of the Ford Escape?
    1344891420

    Lincoln may be working on a new small crossover built on the same platform as the Ford Escape. Our spy photographers recently spotted this early development vehicle out on public streets around Detroit. Slightly larger than its non-luxury sire, the model may bow with a new interpretation of the Ecoboost four-cylinder. It doesn't take a keen eye to spot ...

    Video: 2013 Ford Escape to offer hands-free power liftgate
    1320177480

    Ford will officially debut the next-generation Escape at the Los Angeles Auto Show later this month, but ahead of the crossover's official debut, we're getting our first look at one of the vehicle's new features: a hands-free power liftgate. How does it work? Simply kick your foot under the Escape's rear bumper (as long as the key fob is in your pocket) ...

    Spy Shots: 2013 Ford Escape caught!
    1299184800

    We may not know whether Ford will stick with the Escape name when the vehicle's successor comes along in 2012 as a 2013 model, but thanks to the quick shutters of our crack team of spy photographers, we now have a vague idea of what the machine will look like. Peek beneath all of that camouflage and you're likely to see a vehicle that borrows nearly all ...

    We're shooting from the hip this week for Podcast #71. Rather than prepare, we're going with gut reactions. Starting it off, we mull over the loss of the USGP from Indianapolis, and postulate on where else F1 may pop up in the US. An F1 race on the Vegas strip would be the bomb. Staying with motorsports, we marvel at how Team SARD spanked everyone extremely ...

    EXCLUSIVE: 2008 Mazda Tribute pics leaked
    1162845660

    click on image to enlargeLoose lips sink ships, and we discovered that Mazda's got a hole in its boat big enough to drive the next generation Tribute through without being caught. Mazda shouldn't feel bad about these leaked photos and computer renderings of the 2008 Tribute and its interior (follow the jump for those), especially considering the Mercury ...

    Wow. One of Ford's employees made it way to easy for KGP's shooter to snap a shot of the new Escape in the buff. Seen in a parking lot in the Detroit area, Ford's redesigned soft-roader gets a more butch nose and, surprisingly, doesn't don the three-bar grille that's infecting all of Ford's recent offerings. The nose is decidedly Expedition-esque, with the ...

    The next Mazda Tribute has been captured by the long lense of KGP Photography during some late-stage testing that affords us an uninhibited view of the next ZUV (Zoom Utility Vehicle) from Mazda. Clearly the overall shape of the Tribute's sister ute, the new 2008 Mercury Mariner, remains, but Mazda's version has a different front end that's decidely less ...

    Well, those vehicle testing engineers are a messy lot, aren't they? An alert Autospies reader snapped this shot of the interior of a heavily masked 2008 Ford Escape. The major change from the current Escape dashboard layout (see below) is in the area of the center console, which is much narrower and adopts a vertically stacked design.[Source: Autospies]

    Spied! The next USDM Ford Escape
    1145725320

    Not much is known about the next Ford Escape, other than the fact that the U.S. version is becoming more distinct from its foreign-market counterparts, like the re-nosed model set to run Down Under for 2007. Of course, as can be plainly seen here, the American version of the popular small SUV will get a new look as well, though markedly more aggressive ...

    The Ford Escape will be receiving an Edge-inspired makeover for the 2007 model year that features a headlight treatment similar to the aforementioned CUV but lacks the corporate three-bar grille so popular with the young Fords these days. Larger in size and exuding a more macho demeanor than the inaugural Escape, the next gen model features refreshingly ...
