FORD ESCAPE 2011

Escape

Since its introduction, the Ford Escape continues to be certainly one of America's best-selling small crossover Sports utility vehicles. Thinking about the number of other automobiles can be found in this segment (most of them well-established before the Escape's debut), this has come about as a little of the surprise. But Ford includes a keen knack for creating Sports utility vehicles that attract an array of purchasers.
