One of the most popular compact crossovers in North America is Ford Escape. Ford first unveiled the popular car in 2001 and since then this crossover has slowly become one of the top sellers from their lineup. Escape combines many different things and that is the main reason for its success – it is affordable, reliable, it looks good and offers reasonable amount of features and equipment for its price. However, this compact crossover now has more competition than ever and that is why the manufacturer has decided to update it with next generation model, known as 2016 Ford Escape.
Engine and specs
Ford will offer the base Escape 2016 with 2.5l 4-cylinder engine that produces around 170 horsepower. On the other hand, for those buyers who would like to have a SUV that is fuel efficient, the company will offer Escape with 1.6l 4-cylinder engine equipped with a turbocharger that should produce around 180 horsepower. Furthermore, buyers who would like to have a powerful engine in their 2016 Escape will be able to choose 2.0l engine that produces 250 horsepower. All Escape versions will come with automatic transmission, while all wheel drive will be optional.

2016 Ford Escape exterior design
Ford has recently introduced a new platform – called Global C Platform and the new 2016 Ford Escape will be built on that same platform. Along with the new platform, next generation Ford Escape is going to have lots of small changes to the design of the exterior – most notable changes on the front of the car are going to be new headlights, along with LED daytime running lights and bigger grille with chrome accents. On the back, Escape will get newly designed taillights and rear bumper that will compliment the design better. Apart from that, Ford should offer new Escape with more color options and alloy wheels in different sizes and different design.
When it comes to interior, the Ford Escape 2016 is not going to get too many changes, at least according to statement from the company. The easiest way to see all the changes is going to be on paper, since most notable changes are going to be in the amount of features and equipment included in different trim levels. Good news for those who are planning to buy the base model is that the lowest trim level is going to get lots of new features and equipment, like premium sound system with six speakers, dual zone air conditioning, satellite navigation, satellite radio and leather seats.
Along with all that, the base version will have rear camera with parking sensors, which is something that even more expensive SUVs in the class don’t have. The base model will have five seats, while buyers will be offered third row of seats as an option.
Price of 2016 Escape
The price of the base 2016 Ford Escape start around $24,000.
