After a guy gets out of prison, he’s gonna use the Ford Escape to drive him to wherever he wants to go. I think that the Ford Escape is one of the cutest Ford SUVs on the road. It was first introduced in 2000 as a 2001 model and it was priced below the Explorer – even with the Factory Original Ford wheels.
Even if it was technically a crossover car from Ford, it was marketed as part of its traditional SUV lineup with OEM Ford Escape wheels on it (: I don’t think it was meant to trick anyone into thinking it was an SUV, it just ended up like that.
The Escape was first sold in Europe under the “Ford Maverick” name. I wonder if the 2006 Ford Escape wheels were nicer since they were sold in Europe – & I’m assuming that everything is nicer in Europe…
Have you been to Europe?
