The Ford Escape is a compact crossover vehicle produced by Ford since 2000. A model jointly developed and released with Mazda of Japan, who took a lead in the engineering of the two models and sold their version as the Mazda Tribute. The Escape and Tribute share the same underpinnings constructed from the Ford CD2 platform. At the beginning, both the models were assembled by Ford in the US for North American consumption and Mazda in Japan supplying cars for other markets.
The first generation Ford Escape was introduced in 2000 for the 2001 model year. The Ford Escape was sold in Europe by the name of Maverick and replaced a rebadged version of the Nissan Mistral/Terrano II. Only two versions were made, the 2.0 L Zetec inline 4 engine with manual transmission and 3.0 L Duratec V6 with automatic transmission.
The second generation Ford Escape debuted at the 2006 Los Angeles International Auto Show and introduced in the year 2007. The updated Escape received some styling cues from the Explorer, Edge, and Expedition. Changes include a new grille with larger headlamps in the front, while the sides were revised with cleaner lines and rounded wheel arches. The interior is also completely redesigned, including the newest standard Ford family navigation system.
The third generation was designed by Ford of Europe. It was released in North American markets in 2012 for the 2013 model year. Other markets that previously used the "Escape" nameplate have switched to "Kuga" under the "One Ford" program.
