2013 Ford Escape Spy Shots

Follow Nelson

Due for its debut in just two weeks at the Los Angeles Auto Show, the 2013 Ford Escape has been spied testing in the U.S.

We already know it'll come with a trick hands-free liftgate that uses motion-sensing technology lifted from the video gaming world, and the concept shows us what it'll very likely look like once stripped of the camouflage.

The Escape itself may not be that interesting to luxury buyers, but as we reported earlier this week, the upcoming Lincoln C-segment vehicle will be based on a smaller version of the Escape's architecture, so in a way, it previews that vehicle, too, in terms of capability and overall form factor.

As yet, details on the 2013 Escape remain under lock and key, but we do know there will be three engine options in the U.S., including both 1.6-liter and 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinders wearing EcoBoost badges, plus a naturally-aspirated 2.5-liter.

After making its debut in L.A. later this month, the 2013 Escape will go on sale in spring of 2012.

  1. it looks like this is using the high fat arse that is one the CRV replacement too. In Oz the Escape is a medium sized 4x4 derived alongside the Mazda Tribute. It actually sells pretty well considering. they bring this out and they will have lost huge sales regardless of them trying to compete with the Mazda CX7

  2. You're assumptions are absolutely wrong.. it looks terrific compared to the of present and it's future replacement CRV.

  3. I know what you are saying Wizard. I miss the tough look the current model has, but this vehicle has to sell all over the globe now, including Europe where it will be a Kuga.

    I think you might like it once the camo comes off.

  4. i think the point im trying to make is that its moving from a 4x4 to an MPV in style and not saying i dont like it per se but more that its moving to a different genre of car style and as such should have a name change. The Kuga would suffice. Escape is a cheaper off roader
