2013 Ford Escape Configurator Now Live

April 10, 2012
If you’ve been waiting to find out how much a 2013 Ford Escape will cost when built to your own specifications, your wait is over. Ford has finally kicked off a configurator site for its much-anticipated compact crossover, and the range of available Escape models appears to offer alternatives for nearly every need and budget.

The starting price for the base Escape S in front-wheel-drive, including a destination charge of $825, is $23,295. There aren’t many options at this trim level, so if you want a more powerful or more fuel efficient engine, or if you prefer the added traction of all-wheel-drive, you’ll need to jump up a trim level or two.

The volume leader will likely be the Escape SE, which can be built with the 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine and all wheel drive for less than $29,000. Those opting for fuel efficiency over all-weather traction can build an Escape SE with the 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine and front-wheel-drive for less than $26,000.

At the high end of the range is the well-equipped 2013 Ford Escape Titanium, which starts at $31,195 in front-wheel-drive. Step up to all-wheel-drive and add options like the Sony audio system, navigation, leather upholstery and the parking technology package, and the Escape can close in on the $38,000 barrier.

With nearly a $15,000 difference between entry-level and loaded models, the new Escape will appeal to a tremendously broad array of crossover shoppers. You can’t buy one from your Ford dealer just yet, but if you want to know exactly how big a check you’ll be writing when inventory hits, head on over to Ford’s Escape configurator site.
