2013 Ford Escape First Drive Review: What Is It
According to Ford, 30 percent of all new car sales come from either mid-size sedans or compact SUVs to the tune of around 4 million units annually, but that isn't about to stop the automaker from redesigning its offerings in these two segments in the same year. Instead of shying away from the pressure and introducing conservatively designed cars, Ford aimed for the fences with the 2013 Ford Fusion and 2013 Ford Escape which are likely to be finalists for the 2013 North American Car and Truck of the Year Award and possibly even give Ford a sweep of both awards like it had in 2010. While we still have some time to wait before we can put any miles on the new Fusion, we recently had the chance to drive the new 2013 Ford Escape in San Francisco, Calif. to test out the latest piece of the puzzle to Ford's global vehicle strategy.
