The 2013 Ford Escape will roll into the Zeck Ford showroom shortly. And when we say "shortly," we mean, any day now. We're very excited to see it in person, and it turns out that so are many of you in the Leavenworth area. As a matter of fact, drivers around the country are getting their garages ready for the new Escape - 8,000 of them to be exact.
At least, that's how many pre-orders Ford dealerships have taken for the updated CUV. These are people who haven't even had the chance to test drive the car yet! Not that we blame them. The team here at Zeck Ford is getting ready to move a lot of these Escape models after they arrive.
Here's the really surprising thing about all of this: the 2012 Ford Escape, which is still available, continues to sell like the hot commodity that it is. Since the current-generation model hit the market in 2001, it's remained one of the company's best-selling models. In March of 2012 alone, Ford sold 22,679 units. As of April, sales of the 2012 Escape have outpaced sales of the 2011 Escape by 3,000 units.
While we love the previous-gen Escape, we'd like to take a second to talk about its more rounded out, more aerodynamic, more fuel-efficient successor. The 2.3-liter and 2.5-liter four-cylinder engines, as well as the 3.0-liter V6 engine option have all been replaced by more efficient 1.6-liter and 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engines. On top of which, the 2013 Escape is loaded with the latest in connected in-vehicle technology and navigation.
