Well here are 2 brush Guards to look at on my 1st Gen Escape. You didn't say what year yours was, so I assume by new you mean 2009-2010. Personally I think Bull bars look better on the new Escapes, the pics I've seen of the full brush rack on an '10 didn't really appeal to me, but then again it could have been the angle or just a poor photo.
My old one:
And my new one (I like this one better.) I now have lights on it now like the old one had.
I hit a loose cow in the road which ruined the first one, I think it saved my front end from what would have been worse damage. It stuck way out, which I didn't mind too much at the time, but having the new one now I think a close fitting one looks a lot nicer, and going to protect the same. Be sure and see if you can tell how it will fit when you get one.
I know a few members here have Bull bars and better pics to share. Good luck and be sure and post pics when you get whatever kind of bar you want on there!
