2025 Ford Escape ST-Line Series Ditches Aluminum Pedals

The Ford Escape was treated to a rather comprehensive refresh for the 2023 model year, one that included a major change in terms of its exterior styling, most notably. In addition to its new, edgier look, the 2023 Escape also received some notable tech updates, a reshuffling of the trim level lineup, and various other changes. Thus, the 2024 model year brought forth just a few minor changes for the popular crossover, and 2025 is thus far shaping up to be more of the same – though there is one new deletion present in the 2025 Ford Escape ST-Line, specifically, that’s worth pointing out.

That update is the deletion of the aluminum foot pedals that were previously present on that series, but are no longer included in the 2025 Ford Escape ST-Line model. All 2025 Ford Escape ST-Line models are ditching the aluminum foot pedals, which were previously included as standard equipment on all ST-Line trims  – the ST-Line, ST-Line Select, and ST-Line Elite.

This particular update isn’t the only one present on the 2025 Ford Escape, however, as we’re also seeing a few minor changes for the new model year. As Ford Authority previously reported, the 2025 ST-Line and ST-Select are also ditching their monochromatic painted bodyside cladding, rocker panels, and bumpers in favor of molded-in-color components, though the ST-Line Elite does retain them. Regardless, the ST-Line series still sports its unique grille, skid plate, and 18-inch wheels for the new year, at least.

In addition to these updates, the 2025 Ford Escape is also gaining one new exterior color option as well – Space Silver Metallic – which is a no-cost option on all trims and is one of six hues available for the new model year.

    So, after all this nonstop decontenting, reduce the prices by, say, $10K and then maybe I’ll take a look. Jeez, Louise.
