The online configurator for the all-new 2013 Ford Escape is up and running. The builder isn’t yet finalized or necessarily accurate, as the features and prices for the new compact crossover seen today are subject to change until the vehicle goes on sale in 2012. Additionally, Ford states that “building an Escape provides us with information on how you want to see the all-new” vehicle. But that didn’t prevent us from building one.
As expected, the Escape will offer the same trim levels as the vehicle it shares its platform with — the Ford Focus. As such, S, SE, SEL, and Titanium trims are offered with the following equipment and base prices:
Escape S — $22,720
- AM/FM Stereo with Single-CD, MP3 player and 6 speakers
- Safety Canopy, Driver Knee and Side Airbags
Escape SE — $25,320
- Ford SYNC voice-activated communication and entertainment system
- SecuriCode Keyless Entry
- Dual Chrome Exhaust
Escape SEL — $28,120
- SYNC with MyFord Touch
- Premium Leather Trimmed Seats
- Heated front seats
- Ambient lighting
Escape Titanium — $30,620
- HD Radio with 10 Sony Speakers
- SYNC with MFT
- Premium partial leather interior
We picked the SEL in Kodiak Brown with the charcoal black leather interior, powered by the 1.6 liter EcoBoost, then proceeded to pick equipment group 302A — a $1,895 option that includes a tonneau cover, black side rails, two crossbars, a 110V outlet, a power lift gate and the Parking Technology Package, which offers passive entry/passive start, hands-free liftgate, reverse sensing system, Sony audio with 10 speaks, HD Radio, and remote start, topping out at $29,265.
A Power Panoramic roof is $1,395 and the $795 Parking Technology package that includes auto park, BLIS with CTA, rain-sensing wipers, front and rear park assist as well as a rear view camera. Lastly, 18-inch machined aluminum wheels are a $295 option.
