Pair of 2013 Ford Escape EcoBoost Crossovers Coming to 2012 SEMA Show

Ford is bringing to the 2012 SEMA show two 2013 Escape EcoBoosts along with the previously announced Focuses and Fusions. The two Fusions are both powered by a 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine, but otherwise, have very different themes.

Ford describes the bright-green 2013 Ford Escape SE AWD modified by Heide Performance Products as "tasteful," though that's not the first word that comes to mind for us. The car sports attractive, bold wheels and bulging wheel well flares as well as more aggressive front and rear fascias. With its lowered chassis and visual changes, this 2013 Escape -- which has leather and suede seating -- actually makes us wonder what a factory-sport-tuned Escape ST might look like.
The VACCAR-built front-drive 2013 Ford Escape SE takes a much different approach. While the new Escape crossover leaves behind the last-generation model's classic and rugged looks, the VACCAR Urban Escape Adventurer is said to show a balance of off-road attitude and "upscale comfort" with, of course, the same 240-hp 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine. Unlike the street-focused Heide Performance Products Escape, this Ford actually appears to be ready to go off-roading.

When we tested an all-wheel-drive 2013 Ford Escape Titanium, it accelerated from 0-60 mph in 6.8 seconds on to a quarter-mile time of 15.2 seconds at 88.8 mph.
