The Ford Escape has been around for four decades, and it has become a popular choice for compact SUVs. This particular model hit the automotive scene in 2001, but its third-generation model didn't hit the roadways until 2013. Many changes and upgrades have been made throughout the years from gas-powered engines to hybrid powertrains. In addition to that, the Ford Escape has endured a series of exterior changes to its headlights and body shape. The American Iron and Steel Institute awarded Ford with the Automotive Excellence Award for its innovation with the 2020 Escape.
