Dreaming Of A Brash 2020 Ford Escape Raptor

The new 2020 Ford Escape has a softer and more subtle design than its predecessor as the car manufacturer is aiming to market it towards owners of sedans and hatchbacks. However, what if Ford swallowed a brave pill and decided to make something a little crazier? We could get something like this.

What you’re looking at is an off-road focused Escape which takes inspiration from both the Ford F-150 Raptor and Ranger Raptor. It is wild and brash but oh so appealing.

X-Tomi Design is responsible for this creation and started off by stripping away the lower body panels of the Escape and fitted the crossover with jacked-up components. At the front, for example, a new bumper is featured with a skid plate. Additionally, there is a black grille with large Ford lettering just like the Raptor. Down the sides, you will see black fenders, off-road wheels and tires, new side steps, and Raptor graphics on the rear doors and rear quarter panels.

During a recent interview at the New York Auto Show, Ford executive vice president of product development and purchasing, Hau Thai-Tang, indicated that an off-road focused version of the Escape is on the agenda. However, we believe the executive was referring to the ‘baby Bronco’, a rugged compact SUV already in the works and based on the same platform as the new Escape.

With the presence of the tiny Bronco in its range, it seems unlikely Ford would also sell an Escape model anything like the off-roader depicted in this rendering. Shame.
