‘20 Escape Impressions

Recommended Posts

Judging a book only by it’s cover here....

I really do not like the front end of the new Escape— even less so than the 2020 Explorer, which I did not think possible. 

Never been a fan of massive grilles that swallow up the front end. Glad we have two 2017’s.

I don't see much a difference in overall size as compared to the departing model...FYI, the g/f has a 2018...

You probably won't notice the extra width unless you're looking at the 2 side by side but it is noticeably longer.

Never heard anyone say this vehicle is not handsome - So the Escape certainly falls into that category with the same conceptual styling

Well it has 4 doors and 4 wheels.  Beyond that, I'm not really seeing it.

I like it, and whenever there's new style of car/truck, there always some dislike. Then, later on, some will say "I'm used to it".

The '79 LTD went through this, and many other restyles.

Ok -  We've  never agreed on much here anyhow.

Let's just say it looks a lot more along the lines of the Porsche, than the segment leaders RAV4 and CR-V- agree?

Yeah I guess I can give you that much.

Yeah, the longer hood.  The lower stance appearance.  Fairly straight belt-line.  Almost bordering on wagon like the the European models are following.  That's what the Escape is slant towards.  The last kick up in the belt-line of the Escape is the only thing that doesn't follow the Euro models.

Just look at VW/Audi as well.  Same over all shape.

Saw it at the NY auto show and liked it enough to order one

I assume you have it by now, unless they held it back due to the recall.  I am waiting to see how it performs in comparison tests.  Reviews are generally good, with a lot of praise hesitation regarding the rough-idling turbo 3.  I'm sure it'll get dinged for a nice price increase while losing 25% of an engine...we'll see.

Mom surprised you don’t see it. I do as well.

I see what you’re talking about but I just don’t think the resemblance is very strong.
