These are all relatively similar SUV/MPV things from Ford. They are all from about 2005 and incredibly similar and different at the same time.

First we have the Ford Fusion - no, not that one. - This one:

A “Urban Activity Vehicle” from Ford UK that stayed in production for 10 years. It is FWD only and can be mated to a variety of engines, we’ll pick the most powerful one, a 1.6 4 cylinder making 120HP.

This is the interior, it shares a lot of that with the next contender.

Now, for the next car we have the Fusion’s South American cousin, the Ford Ecosport, a car that has become one of Ford’s Global vehicles but had a humble beginning.

The Eco Sport could be had with 4WD and came with a 147HP 2.0 I4 (that could also be flex-fuel), it shares many of it’s styling cues with the Fusion but behaves like an actual SUV, with beefier suspension and higher ride heigh.

The interior is equally shit but with shittier plastics.

And finally the fat version of a light SUV, the Ford Escape. Designed neither for Offroad or Urban use, the ironically named Escape was designed for those trapped to suburban life. Sure it had the beefy tires and 4WD and all that, but no one really bought one of these expecting to take it offroad, they bought one because they couldn’t afford a Ford Explorer and the other soccer moms wouldn’t accept them if they didn’t have an SUV.

The Escape could be had with the same 2.0 Zetec in the Ecosport, a 2.3 Duratec and a 3.0 Duratec V6 making 200HP, it must be mentioned that the 2.0 could also be mated to a Hybrid System, but never mind that.

The interior is also shit but in a less shit American way.

ALL CARS ARE FROM 2005, OTHER MY DO NOT APPLY.
