The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The boxy, old-school appearance might turn you off, but the 2011 Ford Escape still delivers solid crossover and SUV bona fides. The 2011 Nissan Rogue has a good feature set and great packaging for small-family use, but its performance and details aren't always delightful.
