Job #1 for the 2020 Escape is set for 08/19/2019 but Ford rep's are telling Dealers not to expect them on the ground until November to allow for any potential production delays, etc.

Can't wait for the reveal. Anyone know of any streaming site to view the reveal(s)? I understand the difference in time zone considering that the reveal is in Amsterdam.

Thank you so much for this. I would not have found these info if I had kept searching. I now put the Go Further Site in browser bookmarks. The Go Further Press Kits site was asking me for username and password, which I obviously do not have. I think this site is only for the press people for the time being so they can get info ahead of time but embargoed. Only either during or after the event is likely when the site will then be made public with lists of articles and photos/videos info, at which time the articles embargo would be lifted.

Also, I had to look up CET to figure out my time zone conversion. The CET is 5 hours ahead of EST however, most of regions (including Netherlands) in the time zone is currently in the CEST zone since it's summertime there which is 6 hours ahead of EST. This is according to the site linked below. However, the Go Further site does have a countdown time for the event so it gives us all more accurate preparation time to view the event.

Is this the first time the press is seeing the escape/Kuga? Midnight CET is around 6pm CST so I was hoping we might see some pics early if there was some embargo that stopped at midnight, but it sounds more likely that this will be the first time the press has seen it.

Most likely not-the countdown counter has it kicking off at 11AM EST

What the heck is the deal with the FHEV vs PHEV?

Hybrid vs. Plug in hybrid I do believe. Imagine conceptually the fusion hybrid vs. fusion energy

FHEV - Full Hybrid Electric Vehicle.

As opposed to a Mild Hybrid or Plug In Hybrid.

I also think it's interesting that they classify Escape as an MPV (multipurpose vehicle like C-max ) as opposed to a CUV or SUV.

Is there a simultaneous Escape event?

 

At that high angle they showed them roll out, I thought it was a Focus hatch.

Not sure if there is a separate US event?

Yeah that was pretty bad. It looked terrible on that stage. I think the Autoblog pics make it look a bit better.

Its not as terrible as I thought it was going to be based off the spyshots-it actually doesn't look bad at all. It doesn't look too much like a Focus station wagon on stilts, like I was expecting. 

I forwarded the autoblog site to my wife to ask her option-she says the current model looks like a bug, even though she has one-I think she'll be more interested in the Maverick or whatever they are gonna call it.

The front end is kinda Meh but the rest is really nice and should appeal to a much wider audience especially with the increased interior room and seating/cargo flexibility and hybrid.

They may have to add that shift back to Louisville with the hybrids and the (hopefully even better) executed Corsair coming.

I was expecting  and INCREASE in max cargo, not a DECREASE  :(.

Does that include moving the rear seats up?  I was REALLY impressed with how you can move the rear seats back and get more second room legroom than a Suburban.  That just opened this size vehicle up to a lot more shoppers.  But you can also move it back up when you have a lot of stuff in the cargo area.
