A Peek into When it Started
Perhaps the standard when it comes to Sports Utility Vehicles, the Ford Escape first made its mark in the motoring scene when launched during the 90s. Right when SUVs seemed to be a common sight in the streets, the Ford Escape was an excellent addition for motorists in need of a fun yet efficient ride.
However, what made this particular vehicle stood out from the rest was during that era (even up to now!) was its perfect blend of off-road performance and luxury sedan packed in one stylish package.
Highlighting as well its stylish appearance, the Ford Escape can very well be an appealing escape from the typical vehicles found in the metro!
