2013 Ford Kuga/Escape
This is the new 2013 Ford Escape! Take a look and tell us what you think. It has a great improvement from the 2012 Ford Escape. The Ford Escape also, had a mighty facelift from 2007 and got a little more "boxy", which gave it the look of a compact SUV. That also, gave it the name of the best selling compact SUV beating the Honda CR-V which also, had a resent facelift! Overall, the new Ford Escape looks great and will be a great improvement; but also, may take away its SUV name and make it more "sporty".
► All-New 2013 Ford Escape
The all-new Ford Escape combines the safety features and technologies customers really want, including a high-strength steel body and an even smarter new airbag system that no other automaker offers.
The new Escape adds about four times as much advanced high-strength steel and ultra-high-strength steel as the outgoing vehicle. Nearly one-third of the steel in the all-new unibody Escape is composed of advanced high-strength and ultra-high-strength steel, helping better protect occupants in the event of a crash.
The new Escape also features an enhanced Personal Safety System™ with new safety belt technologies and seven airbags.
The Personal Safety System is a network of components that work together to tailor the activation of the front airbags during frontal collisions. The restraint control module (RCM) translates information collected by the front crash sensors, front outboard safety belt buckle switch, driver-seat track position and passenger-seat weight sensor and judges how fast the vehicle is decelerating, and if the driver and/or passenger are buckled.
With this information, the RCM activates the safety belt pretensioners and determines how the dual-stage front airbags will deploy.
New for the next Escape are pretensioners at the front outboard anchor points and crash-locking tongues. These technologies help pull the belt tight over the hips in a fraction of a second during more severe crashes.
The new side airbags deploy lower in the pelvis area in addition to the chest and incorporate new venting technology, which Escape brings exclusively to the small SUV segment.
The side airbag's venting technology takes into account the size of the occupant, varying the pressure so smaller occupants withstand a lower pressure.
The tunnel vent is lined up with the shoulder area of the occupant. On larger passengers, the shoulder engages the vent and keeps it from venting so the gas stays inside the airbag. On smaller passengers, the effect is just the opposite: Because the occupant's shoulder is below the vent, the gas vents out of the airbag.
The driver's airbag uses a reconfigured curve-shaped tether system that pulls in the lower section to create a pocket to help lessen the impact of the airbag on the driver's chest and ribs in frontal crashes. Deploying at the same time is a driver's knee airbag -- offered on Escape for the first time.
The new Ford Escape also includes the familiar Safety Canopy® System, which combines side curtain airbags and a rollover sensor to help provide protection for outboard passengers during side impacts.
Inflators for the airbags are located near the roof rail between the side pillars, while side-impact sensors are located on each side of the vehicle. The rollover sensor detects a potential rollover and triggers the Safety Canopy System. The airbags stay inflated for up to six seconds to help reduce injuries from multiple impacts or rollovers.

If your a do-it-yourselfer and you want to change your own spark plugs, here's how to do it. You can see the front plugs easy but the back ones are buried under the intake. But don't worry, you simply take the intake off. No special tools are needed, just take your time and be careful

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.

2011 Ford Escape Vs. 2011 Ford Focus IIHS Low-Speed Rear Impact
The mismatch problem with the Ford pair was even worse when the Focus struck the back of the Escape. The front bumper on the car underrode the high-riding Escape's rear bumper, which at 25 inches off the ground is the tallest among all the small SUVs evaluated this time around. Damage to the Focus came to $5,203 and included replacing most of the sheet metal plus many parts in front of the engine.
