The new Ford Escape gets a new look and a name change. But is the flagship Titanium diesel worth the near $50,000 spend?

The 2017 Ford Escape is the Blue Oval’s latest bid to take a more substantial slice of the booming medium SUV pie.

Formerly known as the Kuga, the Escape revives the nameplate worn by Ford’s twin to the Mazda Tribute of the 2000s, while bringing a number of cosmetic and technological updates to what was already a pretty solid package.

On test we have the flagship Titanium equipped with the 2.0-litre TDCi turbo-diesel engine, which starts at $47,490 before on-road costs – making it the most expensive Escape you can buy.

The Magnetic grey paint of this tester adds another $550, while the Technology Pack – which adds driver assistance features like autonomous emergency braking (AEB), blind-spot monitoring and lane departure warning – demands a further $1300, bringing the ticket price before on-roads to $49,340.

By comparison, the Volkswagen Tiguan 140TDI Highline is $49,990, the soon-to-be-replaced Mazda CX-5 Akera diesel is $50,410, while the Kia Sportage GT Line diesel asks for $45,990.

At this price point the Escape is also competing against premium offerings like the Audi Q3 TDI quattro ($48,500) and the BMW X1 sDrive18d ($49,900).

Drive is sent to the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission with steering-mounted paddle shifters.

However, is remaining tight-lipped about performance times for now.

Distinguishing the Camaro Track concept from other models, other than the bright satin green exterior paint with gloss black stripes, are the new front spoiler, side skirts, rear diffuser and rear spoiler, along with black Chevrolet badging at the front and rear.

Filling the arches are 20-inch gloss black alloy wheels, wrapped in 285/30 front and 305/30 rear tyres.

Under the skin, the Camaro Track concept is fitted with the company’s Magnetic Ride Suspension, an electronic limited-slip differential, bi-modal exhaust system, and Brembo performance brakes.

Inside, the track-focused muscle car features Recaro bucket seats, Alcantara flat-bottomed steering wheel, Alcantara trim highlights throughout the cabin, aluminium pedals and unique floor mats.
