About the Escape

Originally launched in the year 2000 as a joint project with Mazda, the Ford Escape was the company's entrance to the compact crossover SUV market.

Mazda went on to sell their version as the Tribute which looked almost identical and shared almost every same mechanical part underneath.

The Ford/Mazda duo knew they needed to enter the rapidly-growing compact crossover SUV to compete against cars such as the Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V.

Car buyers were switching from heavy off-road capable SUVs to smaller ones built specifically for the road, benefiting from lower running costs in the process.

You can see from the history of SUV sales within Ford the transition from heavy vehicles like the Expedition in the 1990s to the lighter versions like this one ten years later.

The third-generation Escape saw the release of this compact crossover SUV in European markets under the Kuga model name.

In 2018 Ford created the C2 platform that is used on several SUVs in their line-up and in 2020 the fourth-generation Escape model was introduced sat upon this.

You can find the new C2 platform underneath the latest versions of the Focus, new Bronco and Lincoln Corsair.

The latest generation of Edge has a wide range of fuel-efficient engines including a standard hybrid and a plug-in hybrid version that is capable of achieving 100empg.
