The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
After eleven years, a change-up: the 2013 Ford Escape drops the faux-SUV pitch and reels off authentically athletic looks and performance. The 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander is an enjoyable, well-equipped vehicle in top-of-the-line GT form; but value-conscious families have plenty of better (and fresher) choices.
