    Rich, not to worry. As Green Car Reports outlined in a Jan. 17th story, the all-new 2012 Ford Escape will be based on the Vertrek concept shown at the 2011 Detroit Auto Show. No word yet whether Escape name will stay or if the new vehicle will be called Vertrek or Kuga (Escape's similar-sized European model), or something else. Anyway, whenever the Escape replacement hits, Family Car Guide will be all over it. Thanks for the comment.

    Good going, Ford for 2 in the top 5. But, man, that Escape is looking frumpy and dated, like Grandma's slippers from the 80s.
