Take a look at the exterior updates and you’ll quickly see that the 2013 model sheds its box-like look of previous years for more a more eye-appealing design. The curved frame meets the expectations of the crossover style category that has become so popular within the last few years, without sacrificing head-space and cargo room.
This vehicle comes in a wide range of 4-cylinder Ecoboost engine options, from the economic 1.6L turbo engine returning up to 33 highway miles per gallon, to the powerful 2.0L turbo boldly asserting 240 horsepower. This not only makes it versatile enough to cater to drivers who need SUVs for different purposes — such as driving through a city or scaling mountains — it also helps adjust the price point so that even frugal buyers can invest in a model.
Optional technology features such as GPS navigation, Sync with MyFord Touch, blind-spot monitoring, and a hands-free rear liftgate add all the extra little touches that make this vehicle so appealing. The best part is that upon its release the flexibility of Ford's design ensured that this vehicle came with these features as additional purchases, meaning some of the bare-bones models come at a surprisingly cheap cost.
