I think that may just be from having different trim levels than any real difference between the two vehicles. The center console I have is a fairly expensive upgrade from the base radio.

Is your engine as packed in there as mine is? I don't think Ford could possibly cram a larger engine into the thing.

Mine would be the LS version I suppose, over here we call them zetec being the basic or L and mine being Titanium being LS and the last being Titanium X being LSE I think. I hope this sort of helps.

That radio isn't available here in any configuration I could find. We both have the premium Sony radio, but mine uses a touch display instead of physical buttons.

Trim levels from least expensive to most expensive -

S, SE, SEL, Titanium

SEL and Titanium both have the MyFord Touch 8" display that mine has, the SE is the only trim level to have the MyFord display like yours has.

The S trim level has no My Ford display at all, intended for rental fleets.

Sorry, I thought you called them "L" over there but you call the "S" so over her the S = zetec and the SE= Titanium ( mine) the SEL = Titanium x over here. Yeah so maybe your right, I never been in one so I have no idea if this is not the case. So I go along with that, in which case nothing change from coming over this side of the pond, which is good.

Well at least I have learnt something to day if only the Americans call there groups of vehicles, thanks for that, interesting.

Looks very nice , touch screen looks great , although the angle of the radio looks like it could be a dust collection point , but still very nice :)

Nice escape Eric!

I actually spotted my first new Kuga out on the roads today and my initial thoughts were 'oo a new escape!'.

(I've been watching too many american YouTube car reviews and the escape seems to have been out a little while longer than the kuga - bit like the US fusion... the mondeo still hasn't hit UK soils <_< )

Paul :)

Up to this current model year, Ford used XL, XLS, XLT to describe the trim levels. Higher trim levels usually get a word (Like Lariat, Platinum, Titanium, King Ranch, Harley Davidson, Eddie Bauer) rather than an alpha code.

Not sure why they changed to S, SE and SEL, other than they had been using those trim levels for decades.

GM uses LS, LT, LTZ and then just like Ford use a word for the highest trim level (Now they use "Denali" but they used to use "Silverado")

I'm very surprised Ford released the new vehicle styles here first - we've been complaining for years that Ford makes amazing small vehicles in Europe but their American small vehicles were the butt of jokes, the Festiva being the worst.

Yeah the Titanium gets all of that, but its cost quickly approaches that of a luxury car. For example, the base model is $22,000, but the Titanium with AWD that I just bought was $37,000 (MSRP). I got it for about $4,000 off after rebates and a VERY nice trade-in valuation.

The sunroof, navigation system, all-wheel drive, full-leather seats, and parking assist systems were the only options I had to get, everything else was in the base.

We also get massively overpowered engines in ours :) Mine has a 240 HP, 270 lb-ft turbocharged gas engine and will do zero-60 MPH in well under 7 seconds. That's 243 PS and 365.6 Nm.

The 1.8 liter Ecoboost is also offered here, but as the mid-range engine producing basically the same power output as the 1.8 liter in the UK.
