I love the former Escapes.

I don’t like what they’ve done to the newest incarnation. They’ve neutered the thing into competing with the smaller SUVs like the Rav 4 and Honda CR-V.

It was better when it was still a truck style SUV.

These and similar trucks (and trucklets) are one of the things the major automakers have done in order to clear the official “car” class of vehicles to eensy weensy things that will satisfy the draconian gummit regulations for fuel economy of “cars.” It’s not Ford only; even gummit-owned Chrysler and GM do it too.

In the meantime places like China get winked at, polluting up a dirty storm (and the globull scientists are now beginning to tell us that soot is a much worse global warmer than carbon dioxide can be).
