2002 Ford Escape XLT Choice 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
I have owned a lot of so called "mini"
Suv's but none as fun or powerful (with
the V6) as I have with the Escape.
My son and I go into the back country
quite often to camp and fish, so I
wanted something that didn't eat up gas
and that would get us where we needed
to go. The ride is car like so it
doesn't beat you up getting to your
favorite place yet has enough ground
clearance for most off road adventures.
I have had no problems with the mini
brute but kinda wish it had been built
on a frame.
Overall, we love it and alot of people
ask about it all the time.
Power and ground clerance.
Maybe , if anything, a little more
solid sounding doors closing (if that
makes any sence). More aggresive tire
