Base Versus Loaded: 2013 Ford Escape

Reviews I By Brandon Turkus I January 25, 2012
The configurator for the 2013 Ford Escape just went live, which means we’ve doing a bit of tinkering and seeing just how pricey we can make Ford’s newest vehicle. The answer is a lot, in case you were wondering.
As is the case with the Focus, the Escape packs a plethora of options that would only have been seen in the luxury class when the second-generation Escape debuted way back in 2007 as a 2008 model. Automatic parking, MyFord Touch, and a panoramic sunroof are just a few of the options that have come to the new 2013 model. Scroll down for the full recap.
Price: $22,470 (Ford Escape S 2.5 FWD) + $795 (Destination) + $0 (Options) = $23,265
Price: $32,120 (Ford Escape Titanium 2.0 EcoBoost AWD) + $795 (Destination) + $4870 (Options) = $36,990
