Ford Motor Co. plans to battle the Toyota RAV4 and the Honda CR-V in the small sport-utility segment with the car-based 2001 Escape. Shown in this unauthorized, computer-enhanced photo, the Escape is expected to be based on a modified Mazda 626 all-wheel-drive platform. The five-passenger sport-utility apparently will be powered by Ford's 3.0-liter V-6 engine and will get more than 20 mpg. Expected price: low $20,000 range.
