> 2013 Escape Features: Green

Available EcoBoost® technology

Compared to a standard port-injection engine, available EcoBoost® technology helps produce a cooler, denser fuel-injection charge that generates more power per every drop of fuel. Twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT) maximizes performance, while two different technologies – turbocharging and direct injection – combine to deliver the performance of a much larger engine with the efficiency of a smaller one. Take your choice of the available 1.6L EcoBoost I-4 engine or the available 2.0L EcoBoost I-4 engine. A 2.5L I-4 engine is standard.

Aerodynamic design

Escape wasn’t designed just to look great – it was also styled to reduce air resistance. Standard Active Grille Shutters* also help by cheating the wind. When closed, they help to reduce vehicle aerodynamic drag caused by air traveling through the radiator.

*Not available with optional 2.0L EcoBoost® engine.

Environmentally conscious

The cushions and head restraints in the 2013 Escape use a bio-based polyurethane foam derived from the oils of various plant seeds such as soybeans. More than 10 lbs. of scrap cotton from jeans, sweaters, T-shirts and other items – material that otherwise would be sent to a landfill – is used in sound-absorption material. The carpet in all models is manufactured from a blend of post-consumer and post-industrial polyester fibers, which reduces the need for new raw materials and helps eliminate waste. The post-consumer fibers are derived from recycled plastic bottles. In total, about 25 recycled 20-ounce bottles are in the carpeting. So no matter what color your Escape is, it will always be green.

Standard six-speed SelectShift Automatic® transmission

To add a little extra fun to your Escape, standard SelectShift capability delivers the performance control of a manual transmission without the clutch. Using a switch on the transmission lever, you can easily and quickly shift gears.
