2013 Ford Escape review | Consumer Reports
Completely redesigned, the Ford Escape is enjoyable to drive. Handling is
nimble, the ride is absorbant, and the car feels solid and substantial. But
it's expensive and some practicalities could be better. Watch more free SUV
Ford Edge review
Ford has extensively updated their midsized SUV, the Ford Edge. Some
changes are improvements, but the MyFord Touch dashboard design adds layers
of complexity. Learn more about the Ford Edge and other SUVs on our
2012 Honda CR-V review from Consumer Reports
The high-selling CR-V is a very practical package, with a roomy interior
and easy maneuverability. Fuel economy improvements make the CR-V a
particularly efficient choice. But noise isolation and emergency handling
could be better.

"After years of soldiering on with the same basic platform, Ford's little
crossover has finally received a major makeover. Judging by our experience
with the 2013 Ford Escape, it looks as if it was worth the wait. The new
Escape stands as one of the top entries in a segment that's already packed
with excellent choices." (Edmunds.com)
2013 Ford Escape Titanium EcoBoost Test Drive & Crossover SUV Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/ford/escape/2013/?id=32972 The 2013 Ford Escape is
the 3rd generation featuring a totally redesigned exterior. The new Escape
also sports a trio of new engine offerings including the EcoBoost 4-cylinder. For this generation both the
hybrid model and the V-6 model were dropped from the line-up. There are 4
different trim levels, 3 different engine types, and 2 drive configurations
to choose from. The base model S with FWD starts at $22,470 while the
Titanium 4x4 goes for $32,120.
The 3 various engine types that power the 2013 Ford Escape. The first is a
2.5 liter 4-cylinder engine that makes 168 horsepower and 170 lb-ft. of
torque. This engine gets 22 MPG in the city and 31 MPG on the highway. The
second engine is a turbocharged 1.6
liter EcoBoost 4-cylinder that makes
178 horsepower and
184 lb-ft of torque. The third engine is the real star of the group. This
motor is a turbocharged 2.0 liter
4-cylinder EcoBoost that makes a
whopping 240 horsepower and 270 lb-ft. of
torque. Fuel economy for this engine is excellent at 22 MPG in the city and
30 MPG on the highway. The transmission offered on all models is a 6-speed
automatic. You can choose between FWD and AWD.
On the outside the 2013 Ford Escape looks clean and sharp. The design style
is both functional and stylish. Ford's new design direction is called
kinetic design and many Ford vehicles including the Escape, Focus, Fiesta,
and Edge all share similar lines. The elongated headlights, grille, and
shoulder lines give the Escape that unique look. The 2013 Ford Escape is
also sleek as it has a lower drag coefficient than the previous model
years. Finishing off the sleek exterior on the Titanium model is a set of
huge 19-inch alloy wheels.
The inside of the 2013 Ford Escape EcoBoost Titanium is a great place to be. Along
with the exterior, the interior has received a thorough redesign. The cabin
feels large and sophisticated with sleek material and well-placed controls.
The Titanium model gets 10-way power seats wrapped in leather. The Escape
Titanium also benefits from tons of Ford Technology. The hands free lift
gate opens automatically just by waving your foot under the sensor located
at the rear. The SYNC and MyFord Touch systems keep you connected. Not only
can you control the Bluetooth and stereo, but you can control the climate
and navigation systems also. Speaking of navigation the unit in the 2013
Ford Escape Titanium features an 8-inch touch screen mounted in the center

2013 Ford Escape Review
Will Ford regret its dramatic design shift for the once-square Escape? And
will the lack of a hybrid option send fuel-economy seekers elsewhere?
If it ain't broke, replace it. That, at least, seems to be the motto at
Ford when it comes to the brand's Escape compact crossover.

2013 Mazda CX-5 SkyActiv Off-Road Review & Drive
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Mazda CX-5 SkyActiv is all new from the
ground up. It is the first car that features Mazda's new SkyActive approach
to building lighter, more fuel efficient, and more responsive cars. It
heralds a new style which in the industry is called a new design language.
Unlike the former Mazda Tribute which shared a platform with the Ford
Escape and had what many people thought was a Mazda's smiley face, the new
2013 Mazda CX-5 breaks all new design and performance ground. Check out
this video as we review the 2013 Mazda CX-5 SkyActiv AWD both on and
2013 Subaru BRZ vs Porsche 911 Carrera S Mile High Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) Most people certainly won't cross shop a 2013
Subaru BRZ and the all new Porsche 911 Carrera S. Yet in many ways the two
cars are very similar. They both have a similar type of flat engine, they
both seat 2 comfortaby but you can get 4 people into the cars in a pinch,
and they are both are classic rear wheel drive sports cars. Of course the
Porsche cost 4X the money and has exactly 2X the horsepower of the BRZ and
yet it is currently and possibly the most desired car by twenty something
year olds. The Porsche is verging on super car status and yet it is
possibly the most desired car by forty something year olds. Check it out as
we mashup these two cars in this Mile High review to see what makes them so
similar to each other.
2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport Test Drive & Crossover SUV Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/new-cars/hyundai/santa-fe/?id=32972 The 2013
Hyundai Santa Fe is a brand new redesign that makes this the 3rd generation
automobile. It's hard to believe that the Santa Fe came out back in 1998.
Back then there were not many crossovers on the market yet. Now that
practically every automobile manufacturer has a crossover, Hyundai is
playing it smart. They have gotten rid of the Veracruz model and then
Hyundai has created a long wheel base and a short wheel base Santa Fe.
Prices start at $24,450.
There are 2 different engine options available on the 2013 Santa Fe Sport.
The first is a direct injected 2.4 liter 4-cylinder engine that makes 190
horsepower and 181
lb-ft. of torque. The second engine is a 2.0 liter turbocharged and gasoline direct injected motor
that makes 264 horsepower and 269 lb-ft. of
torque. The standard transmission is a 6-speed automatic. Fuel economy is
31 MPG combined for the turbo and 33 MPG
combined for the naturally aspirated engine.
On the inside the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport has a great 8-inch Navigation
as an option. The panoramic sunroof is ultra cool and lets rear passengers
enjoy the fresh air and sunlight. The Santa Fe Sport comes standard with
many great features like cruise control, power windows and locks,
Bluetooth, and steering wheel mounted audio controls to name a few. Safety
wise the Santa Fe comes with 7 airbags, stability control, traction
control, and anti-lock brakes. These items are all standard on the 2013
Hyundai Santa Fe Sport.
Many improvements have been made and maybe the most important is the
reduction in weight. The 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe weighs 266 lbs. less than
the previous model. That weight reduction has a positive effect on fuel
economy. The Santa Fe Sport can carry up to 5 people. The rear seat is a
40/20/40 split bench making for a versatile crossover SUV. You can order
the Santa Fe in either FWD or AWD configurations.
The 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is priced right alongside its competition.
But with the Santa Fe you get more standard features for your money along
with a great 10 year 100k mile warranty.

2013 Ford Escape Ecoboost Drive & Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The new 2013 Ford Escape is a European inspired
crossover. The new Escape is now a premium vehicle with almost every new
technology that you can purchase in a vehicle including self-parking, blind
spot monitoring and a rear hatch that opens with the kick of a foot
underneath the rear bumper. In this TFLcar first drive review we put the
new 2013 Escape to the test to see just how much Ford has improved the
vehicle from the previous generation. Of course in Europe the Escape is
called the Ford Kuga so we wanted to find out just how much European DNA
can be found in the American version of the car.

2012 Land Rover LR4 vs Jeep Grand Cherokee Off-Road Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Land Rover LR4 and the 2012 Jeep Grand
Cherokee are two of the most off-road worthy family haulers that you can
buy. Both can be had with a massive V8 engine and both come with
all-wheel-drive to take on the wild Colorado West when the road turns
dusty. Both also have the pedigree to call themselves the very best
off-road rides that you can buy today. In this TFLcar mash-up review we see
which one of these two legendary off-road rides is better in the Colorado
Rockies. Is it the 375 horsepower Land Rover LR4 or
is it the HEMI powered 360 HP Jeep Grand Cherokee?
