Benefits of Driving a 2013 Ford Escape Sport Utility Crossover

The Escape starts at just under $23,000 and competes in the very competitive small SUV market. Ford has chosen to concentrate on fuel economy, versatility and new technology with their new SUV. Small but efficient turbocharged 4-cylinder engines and clever options like parallel parking assist spearhead the effort to set the compact Ford apart from its competitors. A modern, distinct and aerodynamic design also distinguishes the Ford from other small SUV's on the road.

What's new for 2013?

The 2013 Ford Escape is a brand-new vehicle. Gone are the truck-like proportions and feel; now replaced by a modern functional and compact design hailing the new Escape as a truly global vehicle. Though still considered a small SUV, a much greater emphasis has been put on efficiency and clever design features than on previous models. The Escape is available with three engine choices and comes standard with front wheel drive. All-wheel drive is available with the more powerful engines.

Model Review

Ford has four distinct trim models for the 2013 Escape. S, SE, SEL and Titanium. The S is the base version and comes standard with front-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is an option for the rest of the trim levels and adds about $1800 to the price of the vehicle. SE versions get a voice activated version of Ford's SYNC entertainment and communication system allowing for hands free activation of Bluetooth enabled phones and USB connected MP3 players. SEL trims include a brand new version of MyFord touch, enabling touchscreen controls on a dashboard mounted 8-inch LCD screen. Leather seats are standard on the SEL version and the front seats are heated. Top of the line Titanium edition Escapes get a premium interior, 19-inch rims and a 10 speaker audio system by Sony.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.
