As mentioned above, there won’t be huge differences between new Ford Escape and its predecessors. Interior comes in few levels Titanium, S and SE, which is up to buyer. MyFord Touch will be implemented in the system which caused certain doubts considering this system hasn’t proved yet and it has been one of the drawback of all Ford’s hybrids. Despite indications MyFord Touch is improved we will have wait until release to confirm this. Everything else is pretty much the same as before just selection of colors for interior design is widen.
