It’s finally here! The latest Ford CUV has been unveiled in LA today and it certainly appears to be a winner! Continuing on the excellent design themes from the Vertrek Concept, the all-new Escape offers customers all the abilities of the current model with the added style of the Kinetic design language and a new EcoBoost powertrain duo to increase that precious mileage as well as the smarts like MyFord Touch.
Ford has unveiled the Vertrek Concept in Detroit at the North American International Auto Show today and this concept is set to kill two birds with one stone – the US Ford Escape and the European Ford Kuga CUVs.
The Geneva International Motor Show is just around the corner – and with around 100 releases, it’s gonna be a busy one. On the Ford front, there will be a couple of new models – the new C-Max, Grand C-Max & Focus – and a few refreshments – like the mid-life refresh for the Kuga and Mondeo – both of which features a new 1.6 and 2.0 litre Duratorq TDCi, whilst the Mondeo also gets the new 2.0 litre EcoBoost 4 cylinder that’s making it’s appearance on other new small Fords.
How’s this for an odd twist – Ford essentially kicked off the SUV craze with its Explorer, an embiggened four-door Ranger. And man, did we go crazy. Before the cheap-gas bubble burst, slightly more than half of all passenger vehicles sold here in America were SUVs. Just below the Explorer was and is Ford’s little truck (which is no longer little) the Escape.

TAKE a look at the new 4×4 that’s going to turn heads on and off-road! This striking machine is a coupé version of Ford’s popular Kuga, and it’s set to take style to the top of the agenda in the SUV sector.
When Ford began laying out its plan to build European product over here, Ford’s Louisville assembly plant was tipped to build the Euro Focus. But according to sources who spoke to Louisville’s NBC affiliate Wave3, the plant will actually be getting the Ford Kuga. It’s a coup for the plant’s roughly 3,000 employees, who currently build the slow-selling Explorer and its siblings, to now have an undeniably anticipated vehicle to look forward to.
