Yes, prices are subject to change, but Ford’s configurator gives us a good idea of how much a 2013 Ford Escape will go for when it hits showrooms this spring.
A 2.5L 4-cylinder S starts at $22,220. Next up is an FWD 1.6L Ecoboost for $24,820. A 2.0L Ecoboost with FWD is $25,915. AWD versions of the 1.6L and 2.0L are $26,570 and $27,665 respectively. The SEL with FWD will run you $27,620 for the 1.6L and $28,715 for the 2.0L while AWD versions cost $29,370 and $30,465. The top dog Titanium model with the 2.0L Ecoboost motor is $30,120 for the FWD and $31,870 for the AWD.

FWIW, when I saw it in the flesh at th NE Intl Auto Show, I thought it looked great.
v6 RAV4 or 1.6l Ecoblast? hmmmmmm tough choice.
I sat in one at NAIAS last week. Pluses (to me at least), the seats are a bit more sumptuous, and the whole car seems to sit a couple inches closer to the ground. The minuses, it comes off as an oversized Focus, and you can tell that Ford is trying to position it as a premium product, which should be reserved for the Explorer set. I just bought a new '12 Escape XLT last month. It's nothing flashy, but it does exactly what I want it to do, and is practical to a fault. I hope to keep it for a long time.
So, to get remote start, I'd have to spend 30,000 on a Titanium FWD, and get stuck with leather and other crap that I don't want. Great, that just took it off my list. These option packages and trim levels are a cash grab, plain and simple (and Ford is not the only offender, for sure), when a $23,000 car can easily be "optioned-up" to $35,000!
