The forthcoming, updated 2023 Ford Escape has been captured on film numerous times by Ford Authority spies in recent months – including with no camo whatsoever on multiple occasions – giving us a very good idea of what to expect from the refreshed crossover. That includes new front and rear fascias, some interior enhancements such as a larger infotainment screen, and the introduction of a couple of new variants. However, the 2023 Ford Escape also features new tail lamps in the rear, which are a bit different than the current model.
As we can see in these photos, the 2023 Ford Escape features a lot more red in the tail lamps, as the clear areas present previously are now flanked on all sides by that particular color. Judging by the spy photos we have of the redesigned crossover, it also appears that the tail lamps will have slightly more lighted areas on the right side, as there’s a new, continuous LED strip that isn’t present on the current model.
As Ford Authority reported earlier this month, an ST-Line model will be joining the 2023 Ford Escape lineup as well. Shortly thereafter, Ford Authority spies spotted an ST-Line wearing the corresponding badges, but it won’t be the only new addition for the refreshed crossover. In fact, a more rugged Active variant will also be joining the 2023 Escape lineup also, as Ford Authority reported last week.
Ford Authority spies also captured some images of the refreshed Escape’s interior for the very first time last week, showing off that model’s large infotainment screen and a few other revisions, including a few that closely resemble what we previously saw in the refreshed 2022 Ford Focus. Meanwhile, as Ford Authority reported in June, 2023 Escape order banks are currently scheduled to open up in September, with production following a couple of months later in November.
