With over a million units sold, the Escape has proven itself to be an appealing vehicle. If you’re looking for traditional SUV features, such as high ground clearance and a high seating position, but you want it in a smaller, more fuel-efficient package, the 2010 Ford Escape makes a good choice.
The Ford Escape’s interior was recently overhauled, adding better quality materials, “Ice Blue” dash lighting and a new “top-of-dash” information center. Ford moved the Escape’s parking brake to the driver’s-side footwell, permitting the creation of a wide center console storage space large enough to accept a laptop computer. A thicker headliner and carpeting, as well as laminated side glass, help quiet the interior, and the Escape’s rear seat remains one of the roomiest in this class. Ford’s standard Safety Canopy includes side-curtain airbags that deploy in the event of a side impact or impending rollover situation.
The 2010 Escape shares a strong family resemblance with Ford’s other truck and SUV models, giving it a rugged appearance worthy of a quasi-off-road warrior. The Escape’s small dimensions make it easy to park and maneuver, while the large side-glass panels permit a nearly unobstructed view for both driver and passengers. Unlike more stylized crossovers, the Escape’s squared-off roof line creates a tall hatch opening that permits maximum cargo cramming.
In terms of safety, the 2010 Ford Escape is not only a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), but the SUV also earns five stars for front and side impacts from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
