Escape is crossover that Ford launched in 2000 and since then it had major success. Now, third generation of the vehicle is ongoing and 2016 Ford Escape will be another model in the series. It will be almost the same as 2015 year model, with slight changes and visual modifications. However, this generation has started in 2013 and we expect from Ford to keep it for at least 3 or 4 years. That means after this one, next could be slightly more redesigned as a part of mid-cycle refreshment.
