Re: 2020 Escape

IMHO the current Sportage face is out of proportion and looks cartoonish. I do not see any resemblance to the new Focus. I've also grown to love the new Focus and its softer curves. I really like that the hybrid is back where it belongs, this should improve sales going forward.

Your comparison of the outgoing Escape and current Sportage does not show that.

I'm just glad Ford moved away from the outgoing Escape's MPV-inspired proportions.

The new Escape/Kuga's sportier Porsche-ish shape looks much better.

Spotted outside the Shanghai Auto Show.
This appears to be the new (Chinese market) Escape ST-Line, it looks almost identical to the European Kuga ST-Line.

Love this Kuga Titanium looks. The chrome slats grille looks better than the black mesh on the standard Escape/Kuga.

Re: 2020 Escape

Fuel economy improvements mostly from more gears, less total weight and sleeker profile. My guess, the current 30mpg should close the wide gap between the Rav4 at 35mpg. Perhaps 34mpg.

which world do you live in?! there are no Escapes that can come even close to 30mpg...

here's a picture for educational purposes:

It’s called cherry picking, that’s what you love to do...did you see the official source above - all for AWD models?!...Ford needs to step up its game with mpg, the gap is huge!

I was shocked to see the new Highlander hybrid is supposed to get a rating of 34mpg - this is a 7 seater, Explorer competitor size SUV! Incredible...
