Not long after the arrival this fall of the 2007 Edge, Ford dealers will also get a new edition of the Escape, the brand’s long-running crossover utility vehicle.
Due next spring, the new Escape may be marketed as an early 2008 model, along with a freshened version of its companion, the Mercury Mariner. Ford is upgrading the cabin with better-quality materials and more features.
Like Audi, Ford has been hard at work implementing a new “corporate face” on all of its vehicles. Whether it’s the three-bar grille on its sedans, or the signature headlights and chrome treatment on its trucks, Ford is clearly trying to unify its design language.
