The Escape model from Ford has been one of those compact SUVs that tops the lists of first choices for many. Rolling out for the year 2023, the Ford Escape model series is ready to attract a bigger circle of buyers with a much-awaited refresh.
Refreshments for the Year 2023
As per the words shared by the Flagstaff Ford dealer, this year Ford chose to give its Escape model series a bunch of fresh fragrances, without altering the model completely. The changes that include more cosmetic makeovers gave the Escape model series a more visually appealing getup and some refined touch. Even in the cabin changes will not seem to be drastic, while the powertrain lineup of the 2023 Ford Escape series will carryover all the earlier attributes that will include two variants of the Ford EcoBoost engine along with a new Hybrid as well as a Plug-in-hybrid setup.
The light bar of the 2023 Ford Escape which usually sits at the top of the front grille spreading between the two headlights will have the most notable changes. For 2023 this part of the front fascia of the Ford Escape model series will have a set of LED lights while the hood will slim down, shredding extra width. An oval-shaped grille housing a bunch of 3D features will adorn the front of the 2023 Ford Escape models. It will also add new pairs of fog lights and air intakes on both sides. The earlier trapezoidal grille will appear with some smarter design changes as well. On the other hand, the front bumper will grow to be boxier giving the fog lights more importance, while the new front grill will take a smaller shape and size.
The 2023 model year edition of the Ford Escape series will now have rivals like the Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, and the Hyundai Tucson, and still have a couple of reasons to steal the show in the auto galleries.
Power Variants and Performance
Ford has announced carrying forward the lineup of its Escape series with a similar structure where the trims will queue up in the names of S, SE, SEL, and Titanium. The standard powertrain setup for most of these trims will be the 1.5-liter three-cylinder turbocharged engine that will pair with an 8-speed automatic transmission. The lineup of the 2023 Ford Escape will also host a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine for buyers who are looking for peppier accelerations. The 2023 Ford Escape models will deliver 250 hp from the 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which is itself a bigger attraction for the new SUV buyers.
The current year lineup of 2023 Ford Escape boasts of the topmost Titanium trim that comes loaded with a bevy of attractive and much-demanded features like larger-sized wheels and many others that also help the model lay a cabin inside its smart outfit, that allures the occupants with its luxuries. Hence, the experts of the Flagstaff Ford dealership recommend the 2023 Ford Escape as one of the best family vehicles for this year.
