Ford Malaysia seems to be on an aggresive marketing campaign for the Ford Escape, perhaps in preparation to clear off it’s existing CBU stock for this. Ford has launched a new facelifted Ford Escape in Japan.

The Ford Escape’s current honeycomb mesh grille nose has been refreshed to the same chrome bar style of grille as the new Ford Ranger and Ford Everest, with a few other exterior design enhancements like new bumper, head lamp and tail lamp design. From some of these photos it seems you also get the obligatory signal lamp on wing mirror feature which every car manufacturer seems to be implementing these days, though if Ford Malaysia refreshes it I don’t know if we’ll get that level of trim.

Other than aesthetic enhancements, the 2.3 litre inline-4 in the Escape 2.3L VICS has also been equipped with variable valve timing, and the SUV’s overall NVH has been improved. More photos and two videos after the jump.
