2008 Ford Escape Review

Escape Thinks Expands Thrives Inspires Cares! The 2008 Ford Escape. THINKS on its feet. The available sure-footed Intelligent 4 Wheel Drive System takes on any terrain with confidence. EXPANDS to life size. Up to over 62 feet of cargo space means big possibilities for adventure. THRIVES on vacation days-not gas money. 29 miles per gallon gives the green light to road trips. INSPIRES quick getaways. An available 200 Horse Power V6 leaves dull routine in the dust and can tow up to 3500 pounds. CARES about who’s inside. Available front side airbags and Safety Canopy system with segment exclusive rollover sensor will take care of all within. The 2008 Ford Escape the whole saying of performance.
