The Ford Escape / Kuga has been on the market for a couple of years so the company is preparing a minor facelift for the popular crossover.

Recently caught undergoing testing in the United States, the facelifted model features a new front fascia and a revised grille that echoes the Edge.  Additional changes are limited but the crossover appears to have new head- and taillights.

Our spies couldn't get close enough to snap interior shots but the cabin is expected to receive a minor refreshing that echoes the 2015 Focus.  We can also expect capacitive-touch buttons and a new SYNC 3 infotainment system.

Engine options are expected to carryover, so expect to see an assortment of familiar petrol and diesel options.

 Ford has been relatively tight-lipped about the model but the facelifted Escape / Kuga is expected to be unveiled either later this year or early next year.
