In keeping with Ford’s leadership in green technology, the 2013 Escape features several eco-friendly components, including door bolsters (the material inside the door) made of kenaf, a tropical plant similar to bamboo.  The use of kenaf is anticipated to offset 300,000 pounds of oil-based resin per year in North America.  This eco-friendly material reduces the weight of the door bolsters by 25 percent. Weight savings translate into fuel savings for drivers.
