What's on this page

Ford Escape Australia

Launched in Australia 2001, the original Ford Escape shared its platform, most of its mechanical parts, and even its windscreen and roof with the equally new Mazda Tribute.

Initially powered by a 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine and teamed with on-demand four-wheel drive, the mid-sized five-seat Escape would remain on the Ford books for more than a decade, before being replaced by the first generation Kuga in 2013.

Now, the name is back; Ford Australia rebadged the slow-selling Kuga as the Escape in 2017, in line with its other E-badged SUVs like the Everest and Ecosport. The Escape can be picked up for $35,990 for Escape (FWD) and ranges up to $52,940 for Escape ST-Line Phev (fwd).
