Greater Escape: Ford's smallest sport ute gets full-sized redo

By AUTOWEEK

FORD’S SMALLEST SPORT/utility vehicle, the Escape, gets a full-sized redo for 2005, including a new engine, an all-new four-wheel-drive system, and a refreshed appearance inside and out. The new 2.3-liter inline four-cylinder produces 153 hp and 152 lb-ft of torque, replacing the overmatched 127-hp, 135-lb-ft 2.0-liter dohc four.

A more refined 3.0-liter V6 is also available, producing 200 hp and 193 lb-ft of torque. For the first time, a four-speed automatic transmission can be had on four-cylinder Escapes; a five-speed manual is standard.

Ford chose the South Florida auto show (Nov. 7-16) in Miami to premier its freshened SUV, which begins production in December and arrives in dealerships by midwinter. The gasoline/electric Escape Hybrid (AW, Nov. 10) goes into production in midsummer and gets to showrooms by early September.

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.

My next Ford.....
