2008 Ford Escape De lo mejor de Ford ahora aún mejor.


Independientemente del precio, la Ford Escape 2008 se mantiene como uno de los mejores vehículos de la gama Ford y competitiva en un campo atestado de pequeñas sport utility. No obstante, modelo por modelo y equipo por equipo, los precios de la Escape son muy buenos. Las considerables mejoras para 2008 añaden equipamiento de seguridad, refinamiento, confort y más estilo. La Escape ofrece tracción delantera, tracción total, competitivos motores cuatro y seis cilindros y el paquete Hybrid, el cual trabajo básicamente como lo hacen los modelos convencionales. El millaje de combustible para todos los modelos, y la capacidad de arrastre, califican con lo mejor. Para un transporte diario de uso múltiple razonablemente eficiente, la Escape clasifica entre las mejores SUV compactas.
