2005 Ford Escape Limited Fwd 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
Fun to drive! My first SUV purchase after doing a lot of searching. I've not had a chance to try it out in snow yet, but like the AWD feature, one of the selling points. I prefer the exterior 'lines' of the Limited as opposed to the XLT or XLS. I don't care for that black/grey molding around those models. I think it detracts from the overall look of the Escape.
Great sound system! I've never owned another vehicle with a factory sound system equal to this one. Love the moon roof and the spaciousness of the interior. Plenty of rear leg room even with the front passenger seat all the way back.
Better design with cup holders and interior storage space. Improvement in gas mileage. More standard safety features like side curtain airbags.
