Generations

Introduced in 2001, the first Ford Escape was a crossover that shared its platform with the Mercury Mariner and Mazda Tribute. With compact size, useful interior space, and available V6 power and all-wheel drive, the Escape quickly became a bestseller for Ford.

In 2008, a minor redesign freshened exterior and interior design. A radical 2013 makeover, however, created a new Escape that is quite unlike the model’s first two generations. It now shares a platform and design cues with the Ford Focus.

2013 - 2016 Ford Escape

Major changes included:

While the Escape has always been a strong seller in North America, it never offered the appeal to put it at the top of its competitive class. This changed in 2013 with the introduction of an all-new Escape that packed more features within its four doors than ever before. The third-generation is exciting to drive with multiple turbocharged engines available, each of which provides great fuel-mileage. Plus the Escape shares a platform with the Focus, contributing to a surprisingly responsive ride.

2008 - 2012 Ford Escape

Major changes included:

Hoping to keep up with the quick pace of the small SUV market, Ford redesigned the Escape for the 2008 model year. Still using the same platform as the previous generation, this redesign was centered on styling. While the aesthetics were improved, the second-generation Escape struggled to offer the refined, car-like driving experience that had become common throughout the class. A four-cylinder engine with 153 horsepower was standard for 2008, though power was bumped up to 171 horsepower starting in 2009.

2001 - 2007 Ford Escape

3/4 Front Glamour 2007 Ford Escape

Major changes included:

The first-generation Escape was seen as one of Ford's first attempts in adapting to the new millennium's changing car market. Though smaller than the Explorer, the Escape had more interior space than competitors like Honda's CR-V. Unlike most SUVs at the time, the original Escape did not use a solid rear-axle, opting instead for the smooth ride of a fully independent suspension. In 2004, the Escape Hybrid debuted as the first American-built hybrid vehicle to be in mass production.
