Fully representative of Ford’s latest “Kinetic Design” that stepped up the brand’s game over in Europe, the new Escape makes the old one completely forgettable.

Gone is the old 3.0L Duratec 30 V6 and in come two new EcoBoost four-cylinder engines that are available in either 1.6L or 2.0L form. The 1.6L produces 175hp while the 2.0L churns out 240hp.

We’re liking what we see and are looking forward to drive it.
