  1. I do not like he look of the new Escape for 2012.  Having owned one previously and thinking of buying one next year I have decided to look at other options… they haver ruined the look of the Explorer and the Escape.   The new escape looks like a Honda CRV.   If I wanted a Honda I would buy one.   Ford just lost my purchase.

  2. We were waiting for the new Escape to come out to purchase one. It’s ugly and a crossover too boot. I don’t like it and my wife hates it. We’ll look for something else.

  3. We were looking at the chevy equinox, but waited to see the new Escape.  Glad we waited, the 2012 looks way better than the previous generation Escape, and will have new engine options as well.  Way to go Ford! 

  4. Thank You – I posted this on Facebook – Take the body of a KUGA, Tech of SYNC, Audio of SONY and some VOLVO features and build the new Escape soon… I currently drive a Honda CR-V and love it, but believe Ford has the ability to be a leading domestic and world-wide auto company.
