2013 Ford Escape

According to a report in Automotive News, when Ford pulls the wraps off its redesigned 2013 Ford Escape later this fall, it will NOT sport the popular V6 engine or the hybrid powerplant. Instead, Ford will offer a trio of four-cylinder engines in the new Escape: a base 2.5L naturally aspirated four-banger and two “EcoBoost” turbocharged engines: a 1.6L making about 175 horsepower and a 2.0L making about 240 horsepower (the same engine is offered in the new Explorer). The 2.0L will replace the 3.0L V6 that has been a popular option with Escape buyers since the model first bowed, and should achieve higher gas mileage than the six, as well.
