2019 Ford Escape

Postby Escape94 - July 19th, 2017, 9:04 pm

It seems someone has spotted a 2019 Escape out testing. Looks like we are provided some possible specs as well.

A PHEV Escape would make sense to replace the C-max. I feel like their sales have dwindled.

It doesn't seem to have the silly forward rake that my '17 does, I really want to lower the rear so it is level, seems like I am driving the dumb car I drove in high school with huge rear tires and headlights shining 2 feet in front of it.

I think people are ready for the Hybrid again, the CMax is fine but styling wise the Escape is better, probably take a hit in aerodynamics though.

Weird combo of S front end (no fogs) and Titanium (turns in mirrors). Looks like it is just lower to the ground, that is why it looks wider, I am pretty sure my '17 is as wide as my 2000 Grand Marquis, and with as tall as it is, harder to walk around in a garage.

Be pretty quick of an update, freshening up in 17, more models (again) in 18 with consolidation of options and power plants, but still very similar underpinnings since '13.

a 9 speed would be odd, mine has shifted 3 times before my old car has even shifted once, and in Sport mode it shifts down with minor input. Would be nice to keep it out of the boost for normal everyday driving as 3,200 RPM means 1/2 the MPG of 2,000.
'17 SE, FWD 1.5T Magnetic Metallic

I thought the E was going to be "all new" for 2019, looks to be just some cosmetics like 2017. Oh well, I do like the idea of bringing the hybrid back and the larger 2.3 engine
