    Just picked up a 2013 Escape!

    Hi, everyone! We just took delivery of our 2013 Escape SEL last week. We ordered it in August and it came in a couple of weeks ago. After test driving many of the crossovers on the market, the Escape was by far the best of them all. The only one that came close was the Mazda CX-5, but the 2.0l Ecoboost engine had way more power and the fuel mileage is plenty good enough for what we wanted. This is for the wife and we are loving it! Don't know what all the complaining about My Ford touch is, we find it very easy to use. Props to Ford! I had a 2001 Escape as a company vehicle and as good as that vehicle was, this is light years better. I'm loving that Ford is finally giving us the European models.

    Yep, Lamarque is great. If you go in and you meet Ronnie's brother Dennis, ask him to do some impressions for you! He's hilarious!

    I'm hoping that once the Escape becomes available in Europe (Kuga), I'll be able to buy the rear fog light units to replace those reflectors in the rear bumper. If anyone has a connection for Euro Ford parts, please let me know! Thanks!

    Congrats. Good choice. I'm seeing a lot of the new Escapes in our area now.

    Looking closely at a 2013 Escape and not impressed by choice of colours. We're looking at a SEL and leaning towards silver. That rear bumper insert that is silver in colour stands out like a sore thumb with most colours. On the basic S that rear bumper insert is black. I have a friend that likes that Ginger ale (green) and will take it to a body shop to have that rear bumper insert painted black. I said if he gets the SEL he may want to consider having it painted that gloss black like the front grille. Aside from that I'm impressed with the EcoBoost engine and dash layout.

    It's funny how tastes are different. I love the silver inserts because a) It breaks up all the black, and b) It gives it a little more "butch" look, like skid plates or something.

    I do love the twin exhausts out the back, as well. We've got over 1200 miles on it now and we are still loving it! The ride is simply amazing and the EcoBoost engine is so smooth and has plenty of grunt. The tranny is a little slow to kick down for passing maneuvers on the highway, but that is a small gripe.

    Nice! In the name on increased FE, while we keeping my wife in her desired vehicle-type .... SUV (my wife currently drive a Jeep Commander) this and the CR-V are on the top of our list.

    If you could, how did this stack-up against the Honda?

    Enjoy!
