The FDNB (Fleet Distribution News Bulletin) provides a lot of information including model changeover schedules, fleet specific information along with information on scheduled plant "down" time. It was interesting to see that in yesterday's FDNB that the Escape plant is scheduled to be down the weeks of 06/18, 06/25, 07/02, 07/09 & 07/16. The weeks of 07/02 & 07/09 can be attributed to Ford's usual annual down schedule but the 3 extra weeks of down time are surprising for one of Ford's volume sellers. Perhaps there's advanced tooling changes being made but couldn't that be done during the annual two week shut down in July? Why the extra 3 weeks shut down for this volume model when the 2019MY Job #1 Date isn't until 10/08/2018? Maybe someone else has some information that may explain the long "down" schedule.

Salesman that sold me my 2018 Ford EcoSport claims that with C-Max production ending at the end of `18 MY, rumors are that `19 Escape will return with a Hybrid Option?

Probably not 2019 since thats a carryover model, but 2020 for the brand new one its pretty much guaranteed

I keep wondering about the date "discrepancy" ... assuming both come from Louisville

2019my Escape ------- 7/16/18 OG/Bank,  Job 1 = 10/8/2018
2019my MKC REVISED 2/12/18 OG/Bank,  Job 1 = 5/7/2018

It is likely because the MKC gets a revised styling with the new Lincoln grille while the Escape will be a carryover.

that's fine for the minor, cosmetic touch-up on the C1 MKC

BUT what happens when the ALL-New, LARGER C2 Escape goes into production?

That we'll see about a year from now. I expect the Escape and MKC to go on a twin schedule for the complete redesign similar to Fusion and MKZ.
