The 2013 Ford Escape is now a production reality, the completely redesigned crossover now rolling off the lines at Ford’s Louisville assembly plant. Still a top seller in its last model year, the brand-new 1.6-liter EcoBoost Escape gets 22 mpg city, 33 mpg highway and yes, the $23,295 base model does get pricey very quickly when you start ticking the reams of options boxes. Nevertheless, the Escape surpassed the 8,000-orders mark before any customer had even driven it.
Its looks have found some detractors, but we have a feeling that it won’t have any problem finding new homes. Scroll down for a video of plant workers talking about production processes. When you’re done with that take a trip down to see your favorite Maryland Ford Dealer, yep that’s us here at Waldorf Ford, to see one for yourself.
