Ford Escape/Kuga Concept to Debut at Detroit Auto Show

As reported many months ago, Ford will replace its Escape compact SUV with a new crossover model similar to the European Kuga. Based on the same architecture as the new global Focus, the new Escape/Kuga will be previewed in concept form at the upcoming Detroit Auto Show in January.

The same platform will be used for the upcoming Grand C-Max MPV as well as for a Lincoln compact crossover.

Powertrains will likely be shared with the Focus, meaning there will be a 2.0-liter direct-injected 4-cylinder, while an EcoBoost option is also certain to be included to give the new Kuga/Escape enough oomph to keep pace offerings like the Toyota RV4 V6.

    Excellent! We all look forward to seeing it at the show!

    The ancient Escape is LONG OVERDUE for replacement, and the Kuga will fit nicely into the very practical & economical C-SUV vehicle segment. The Kuga’s masculine, athletic stance is very desirable.
