Solid SUV with classic looks
March 28, 2019
I was looking to replace an aging 2007 Forester with another Forester but after test driving a used 2012 Escape with the older body style and the V6 3.0 engine I began to be attracted to the classic looks, powerful engine, and overall solidity of the vehicle. So I looked around for a couple of weeks wanting the top Limited I finally settled on the XLT with V6, leather, moonroof, and SYNC. So far so good and the gas mileage is not bad. There is still E85 gas around and this vehicle is a FLEX vehicle so I could use the E85 gas but have not tried it yet. The one immediate difference between the 2012 Escape and other current SUVs including Ford's own Escape is the more truck like feel. But that's what I like about it!
