With gas prices staying around $3, test driving an efficient ride from Veterans Ford in Metairie, LA is probably the best thing you can do for your wallet. The auto maker is touting an updated Ford Escape as one of the Greenest CUV's on the market today.
CEO Mark Fields spent the past few weeks heading to national auto shows to talk about Escape crossover: "It is still about bringing out eye-catching world-class products. Next year is supercharged with product introductions. We will have our Escape but we will also have a brand new Fusion."1
Escape has grown to become one of the company's highest volume vehicles, selling over 200,000 units just in 2011. Escape's nameplate has great consumer awareness, as well as respect. Ford hopes to continue to live up these those expectations.
Escape is available in both standard and hybrid variants. Rumors of an all-electric model have also trickled out around the web.
