2013 ford escape tentatively priced at 22 220

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.

      it depends alot if interior styling is important to you. If you don't care, sure, get the Rav4.

    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.

      Ford's push with all of the new models has been that you shouldn't have to buy the larger vehicle to get the premium features. If you want a big CUV you can go with the Explorer, if you want a medium sized one you can go with the Edge, and if you want a compact one you can go with the Escape. You don't have to buy a larger vehicle just to get some of the premium features though. It makes sense - pick the size you want/need and have the features you want available regardless.

    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!

      A common Best & Brightest complaint seems to be the hate of (1) offering a stripped-down base version and (2) then also offering a bunch of options - and demanding money for those options!!! Sure options are more profitable to a carmaker, but at least the domestics offer more of them as ala carte than ze Germans (trust me, I just bought a new A6 and had to buy a $5,000 option pack just to get back up sensors). I'm amazed that Ford offers MyFordTouch without Nav, for instance. In your case, there just aren't that many people that want one luxury/comfort feature (remote start) but not another luxury comfort feature (leather seats). It's far from shocking. And you know what, Ford is listening. Nullo notes the Myfordtouch upgrade, and jack yesterday noted the Titanium and SEL Focii with manuals. These guys are doing a whole lot right. I don't own a Ford but I am far more intrigued by all their new vehicles than anybody else.
