Maybe Ford reserved the "E" just to annoy Elon Musk - now he only makes S_XY cars..

  • ...I still wonder if the increases in stroke, displacement and compression, without much apparent increase in power, ... "long stroke" gave better torque at low RPMs ...
  • ...More cargo space is great - and there should be a greater distance between wheel wells.
  • ...Towing capacity for all variants

You answered your own question. I expect more torque from an "oversquare" design (stroke/bore >1) than an "undersquare" design. Our stroke/bore is 0.95 and torque rather anemic and in need of EV assist. The 2.5L ratio is 1.125, so if HP is up 10, maybe torque will be closer to the EV side's 177 lb. ft? That would be impressive!

 

I think I saw a number in the low 40's for wheel well spacing...

 

If it's the same transmission, I expect the same towing prohibition. If this motor has a bunch more torque, perhaps it's a different tranny. 

 

Have fun,

Frank

"The Escape... hybrid models can each tow 1500 pounds. "

 

From a Car and Driver comparison with RAV-4 and CR-V. First time I've seen a tow ration confirmed.

I think Ford should also produce a smaller Hybrid / Plug-in SUV similar in size to the Honda HRV and maybe they could call it something like, I don't know, C-Max II.  I'm really going to miss the C-Max form factor - it has been perfect for me.  I'll have to say I see more C-Max on the road than ever before.  They're a fantastic deal on the used car market and appear to have some longevity.

I think they were saying that they are working on a small Hybrid SUV off of the Mustang format. :headscratch:

Ditto.

That's the smaller Ford SUV all right, but I would be surprised if it wasn't an EV. 

 

Remember, too, that the Escape platform has a 2-door variant. I don't see it getting a hybrid option... but the bigger the family, the better the chances a hybrid option remains in the order book.
