2002 Ford Escape XLT Choice 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
Good looking, handles great on ice and
in snow. I use it a lot for backraod
access to hiking trailheads and it
outperforms other vehicles I have driven
in similar conditions (e.g. Land Rover).
Lots of pep.
Ease of dropping down rear seats for
more cargo room.
