2013 Ford Escape Summary

The all-new Ford Escape offers three four-cylinder engines, most notably the 240-hp EcoBoost 2.0-liter four-cylinder twin-turbo EPA-rated at 21/28 mpg with an available sophisticated new AWD system. There's one smooth 6-speed manual automatic transmission for all models. The 1.6-liter EcoBoost is quick, lively and visceral; while the 2.0 feels like a V6. Classy interior, excellent handling, plenty of cargo space with rear seats that fold down with one touch. MyFordTouch and Voice Command remain problematic. An Escape SE model with the 1.6-liter engine is the way we'd go, to get most of the virtues at the lowest price.

Sam Moses filed this report after his test drive of the Ford Escape in the Pacific Northwest.
