Unspecific Ecoboost engine badges
Something that puzzles me is why the Ecoboost badging doesn't specify which engine is under the hood. There are "4WD" and standard versions, but no "1.6" or "2.0" badges. Usually, when the exact same model of car can have different engines, there's an external indicator -- "V6", "5.0," or the like.
This isn't a problem for those of us in this forum, but I foresee potential for confusion ahead when large numbers of the new Escapes enter the used car market. You can't identify the exact engine by the trim: 2013 SEs and SELs, and 2014 SEs and Titaniums, all can have either the 1.6L or the 2.0L. You can't tell by looking under the hood, unless you already know what the two engines look like, because the engine covers just say "Ecoboost." The cars' original stickers will be gone. When uninformed buyers meet unscrupulous sellers, I think this issue will be exploited.
