July 30, 2015 - The 2015 Ford Escape
For several years now, the Ford Escape has been a top-selling compact crossover vehicle, and after reading this, you'll know why so many people are choosing this SUV over a number of similar vehicles on the market.
History of the Ford Escape
The first generation Ford Escape was released in 2000 for the 2001 model year. It was developed jointly with Mazda, in which Ford owned a controlling interest, and it was released at the same time as the Mazda Tribute. If you're shopping around for a high quality used Ford at an affordable price, you'll find it here at Spradley Ford in Pueblo, Colorado.
The second generation Ford Escape debuted at the 2006 Los Angeles International Auto Show, and a new concept version for the Asian market, called the Ford Escape Adventure Concept, was revealed at the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show; it featured a redesigned front and rear fascia which incorporated Ford's three-bar grille system and redesigned LED tail lamps.
The current generation of the Ford Focus (2012 to present), was revealed at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show and is based on the new Global C platform by the Ford company. What does that mean, exactly? Recent models offer Two EcoBoost® inline four-cylinder turbocharged engines, and the Escape is the first Ford vehicle to offer a 1.6-liter engine. Ford states that the fuel efficiency of the new 1.6L EcoBoost® engine matches that of the previous Ford Escape Hybrid, while the new 2.0-liter engine produces more horsepower than the current V6 unit. The transmission is a six-speed automatic, and the new generation Escape is 10% more aerodynamic than previous years.
