The astonishing exterior of Ford Escape
The older boxy profile of the Ford has been replaced by the wonderful sleek capsule design. Smaller slatted grille on the front along with large lower shuttered air dams that open and close during driving to improve wind resistance and fuel efficiency, enhance the overall look of the car. A crease along the side adds more to its stylish look. The power lift gear is the ultimate source of pride in this new car. A sensor is placed under the rear bumper so when you kick you foot under it, the lift gate opens. Doors are light and easily manageable even by the kids.

Sense, style and safety of the new Ford Escapes
The family friendly car is great in style and offer real fun time to the driver and passengers. It has been named the top safety pick as it received good marks in rear, side, front, and roof-strength crash tests. Four wheel disc antilock brakes and brake assist, electronic stability system along with anti-roll control, seven airbags and traction control offer good safety features. Forward collision mitigation system and a back up camera is optional which may also include cross traffic alert.

Pretty interior
The new Ford Escape has got a package of features with push-button start and heated front seat and contrast stitched leather trim. The sync system with voice control functions for the stereo. The car lacks storage with only two cupholders but center console can house some items. Aux jack and USB connect is also there.

It is a quite, plain and simple cabin which can drive your thoughts. There is ample leg room and the most interesting is the second row’s reclining seat backs for comfort.

Price of the Ford Escape
The new 2013 Ford Escape S starts at $23,295, but it’s with the least desirable of its three engine choices (which we have described earlier), covered steel wheels and black plastic exterior trim. The price range may also touch $32,120 depending on the version and engine of the car.
