The 2013 Escape has 45 percent domestic content, or parts that come from the U.S. and Canada, Ford says. Another 15 percent of the Escape’s parts come from Mexico.
The Escape, redesigned for 2013, is built in Louisville, Ky., but all of its engines are imported, illustrating the global nature of today's auto industry. The 1.6-liter four-cylinder is built in the U.K., the 2.0-liter in Spain and the 2.5-liter in Mexico. The six-speed automatic transmission is made in the U.S.
The previous-generation Escape had 60 percent domestic content, partly because the optional 3.0-liter V-6 was built in the U.S.
