Updated Ford Escape replaces Ford Kuga…
There’s a new look and feel for the mid-size Ford SUV, previously known as the Ford Kuga.
The biggest changes include a new-look front and a more efficient 2.0 litre EcoBoost petrol engine.
Adding stop/start tech and a new twin-scroll turbocharger, Ford is promising buyers that they will benefit from a 0.2L/100km improvement in fuel economy.
Also coming to the 2017 Ford Escape SUV is a front-wheel drive/1.5 litre EcoBoost option in the mid-spec Trend model grade.
While all automatic versions of the Escape now come with paddle-shifters.
Priced from $28,490, Ford Australia boss, Graeme Whickman, says the Escape is sure to be a hit.
“The 2017 Ford Escape is more refined and a sharper offering.”
