Although many still associate SUVs with the Ford Explorer and Chevrolet Tahoe from the mid-’90s to early ’00s, compact crossovers are the new sales leaders in today’s SUV field. As part of Alan Mulally’s “One Ford” initiative, the U.S. market got the good fortune of getting a version of the European Ford Kuga as the 2013 Escape. Compared to its predecessor, the new Escape is much more stylish and technologically advanced. No V-6 engines are offered, but with the top 2.0L EcoBoost offering 240 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque, you won’t be missing those extra cylinders. With trims ranging from the basic rental fleet S trim all the way to the plush Titanium, there’s a trim for every budget and taste. Although it has slightly less cargo volume than the Honda CR-V or Toyota RAV4, the Escape’s optional foot-actuated tailgate makes getting to that space easier than ever.
