Ford Motor Company’s first demonstration Escape Plug-In Hybrid is ready to roll on California roads. Ford delivered the first of 20 research PHEVs to Southern California Edison to begin road testing as part of a unique partnership between the automaker and utility.
The new 2008 Ford Escape is entering the marketplace with a bold new design, a quieter ride and a host of new features and options– with sticker prices that average $1,100 less than 2007 Escape models. The 2008 Escape also benefits from substantially improved residual values.
For the first time in more than 20 years, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is changing the way it calculates fuel economy estimates — the city and highway miles-per-gallon calculations that are posted on the window stickers of new cars and trucks.
The Ford Escape, America’s best-selling compact utility vehicle, has a completely new look inside and out for 2008. Escape now makes a powerful statement with a bolder, rugged exterior design that bears a stronger family resemblance to the Ford Explorer and Ford Expedition.
