I was hoping the 2.0 and 2.3 for the Corsair would have gained some horsepower. I'm pleasantly surprised Escape will still offer AWD in the base S model.
Escape will have hybrid and plug in hybrid, while Corsair is only plug in.
While it would be fun to see a performance hybrid Grand Touring version with the 2.3EB, I'm not disappointed by the power number for the 2.0 and non-hybrid 2.3. The old Foxbody Mustangs only had around 225HP and they were a lot of fun, and the Corsair isn't a pony/sports car. the 2.0 at around 240HP and the 2.3 at 275 is great for this class IMO.
