Updates Keep Escape At the Top of the Pack The owners of the 2010 Ford Escape rated their satisfaction with the Mid-Size Crossover Sport Utility Vehicle tops in its class. This is an especially interesting win because Escape is has retained its basic style since it was introduced as the first American Crossover SUV way back in 2000. There was a moderate styling update in 2007 followed by a major powertrain update in 2008, but Escape wins over newer Mid-Size Crossover SUV designs. We have always thought Escape resides in a sweet spot among smaller SUVs and this win proves we are right.
The Escape has highest ratings for overall satisfaction in its class. Other superlative ratings (4.5 or higher on a 5.0 point rating scale) include: feeling safe while driving, wheels and tires. Other strong ratings for Escape are: ride, audio system performance, innovative technology, overall dealership experience and value for the money.
Ford can honestly say that they have invested in the right updates for the Escape over the years to keep it at the top of the pack.
