Fuel economy for the all-new 2013 Ford Escape will be considerably better for today's Escape, which isn't so bad to start with. In fact, the new Escape's so much more efficient that Ford will drop the hybrid version from the line-up, at least for the time being.
The hybrid Escape is being replaced by a version equipped with a small 1.6-liter engine. Instead of relying on batteries and electric motors, this SUV will wring as much power as possible out of that tiny engine using advanced fuel injection, variable valve timing and turbocharging. Altogether, those engine technologies are much cheaper than a hybrid powertrain.
