Ford Quietly Kills Off Hybrid Escape?
Ford has announced that the next Escape, based on the European Kuga, will come with 3 flavors of I4 engines, 1.6L Ecoboost (GTDI), 2.0L Ecboost, and 2.5L NA. No mention was made of the hybrid powertrain currently available, giving Ford bragging rights to "most fuel efficient SUV". So it looks like Ford is quietly killing off the hybrid Escape in favor of the C-Max hybrid and plug-in hybrid.
