The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
A boxy, roomy, rugged-chic exterior; good maneuverability; and decent off-road ability just might balance out the utter lack of refinement. The boxy, old-school appearance might turn you off, but the 2011 Ford Escape still delivers solid crossover and SUV bona fides.
