Re: 2020 Escape

The more I look at the newer pictures and look again at the old design, the more I recognize that Ford has a winner that will be brilliantly differentiated from the more aggressive mini Bronco.

As for all this social media disgrace......I spend far too much time on social media, and I have literally not seen anything....except here. But that's just me

Feel free to visit Ford’s Facebook and Twitter...it’s literally full of comments of people that aren’t not enjoying the new looks and dislike the idea that the Escape does not look like a SUV anymore. Again hard to say what will happen based on comments...

In GM’s case, sales took a deep dive...

Most likely. My guess is the regular Kuga trims probably have the same matt black cladding as the US Escape.
The ST-Line and Vignale usually have unique front ends and body-colored cladding.

Re: 2020 Escape

Black cladding is fine. We all know it's plastic, and molded plastic is more durable. I see it on a lot of off roaders

Last time I saw such an uproar was with the new GM trucks design...
Social media erupts over everything. The thing will look nice in person and 99% of shoppers looking at the Escape aren't in the Car and Driver comments section. It's cancer no matter the article. Remember when people freaked out over the 2015 Mustang redesign and now everyone loves it? Being appalled is fashionable nowadays so it's often illegitimate.

People freaked out over the 2015 redesign? I don't remember that at all.

I've loved it since day 1 as well, but yeah a lot of people for some reason hated it. Just the other day I saw a comment on how Ford ruined the Mustang with the S550 gen. More people have come to like it though, up until the 2018 refresh which divided people again lol.

People loved the redesign - it was general consensus with many saying the 2015 was on pair with the 69 classic Mustang design.

Not sure where he got that one...

Re: 2020 Escape

Billions of people on social media sites always exaggerate when they try to make a point. I have seen it a trillion times.

Re: 2020 Escape

I have really grown to like the new Escape. I was a bit tepid at first, missing it's truckish profile. But that is now what I am so glad it got rid of.
