L. A. Auto Show Debut: 2013 Ford Escape Drives Upscale

Ford is breaking all of the rules with the soon-to-be-released 2013 Escape, which made its debut at last weeks L. A. Int'l Auto Show. The compact SUV moves from a SUV platform to a crossover platform, while also adding a few more curves. The 2013 Escape has been redesigned from the inside out. Besides the radical exterior design, the Escape provides more cargo volume behind the first and second rows than today’s vehicle along with 11 features no other compact crossover or SUV offers.  Some of those features include:
  • Clever technologies that make Escape even more versatile, including an available hands-free power liftgate that allows quick and easy access to cargo with the kick of a foot
  • Projected best fuel economy of any compact SUV, up to 5 mpg better than previous Escape
  • Driving dynamics that make the drive experience more engaging on-road and a new Ford Intelligent 4WD System that provides even better traction off-road
  • Sleek new design, with better interior materials and more finishing touches
  • Available hands-free power liftgate brings new technology to the SUV market and is enabled by motion technology used in today’s video game systems. A gentle kicking motion under the center of the rear bumper activates, unlocks and raises the liftgate when the driver has the Escape key fob. This allows quick and easy access to the cargo area without needing to set down packages or dig out keys. The same process closes the hatch
  • SYNC® with MyFord Touch®, offers multiple ways for customers to manage and control information through voice commands, menus accessed through controls on the steering wheel, touch screens, buttons or knobs. Upgraded system includes new look, making phone, navigation, entertainment and climate controls even easier to use
  • Parallel parking the Escape is virtually stress-free with active park assist. With the press of a button, the system detects an available parallel parking space and automatically steers the vehicle into the space. Drivers control only the gas and brake pedals
  • Maneuvering parking lots and traveling open roadways becomes even safer and less stressful with Escape’s sensor-based BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with cross-traffic alert. BLIS displays an alert in the side mirror when a vehicle is detected entering a blind spot. Cross-traffic alert warns if traffic is detected approaching from the sides, such as when Escape is leaving a parking space in reverse
  • The all-new Ford Escape is the first Ford SUV to combine class-exclusive technology to  automatically slow the vehicle when it’s cornering too fast (Curve Control) or help accelerate through a turn (Torque Vectoring Control); a new Intelligent 4WD System helps deliver outstanding handling on pristine pavement and in adverse conditions as well, along with  excellent traction off-road
And underneath the hood the Escape offers Ford’s broadest nameplate range of EcoBoost® engine choices. Strong fuel economy comes from either the available 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine or 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine, which makes its American debut in the new Escape. We're not quite sure if Ford will offer a hybrid model in the 2013 model, since they just dropped the 2012 Ford Escape Hybrid for the new EcoBoost engine.

I'm really enjoying the theme/design of your website. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility issues? A few of my blog readers have complained about my site not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any ideas to help fix this problem?
