I like it! I hope they have at least one that you can poke around in by the time Detroit Auto Show rolls around in January.

Hmmm... I think I'll need to see it in person. In the photos, it looks to me like they just grafted the new corporate snout on an existing design. It doesn't blend as well as the original front end did. Two design philosophies in one product tends to create a confused final design. :shrug: I will say it does look cleaner at least. I also wish they moved the back end closer to the original VerTrek concept. These new taillights look very Kia'ish to me.

I also wish they had done more with the interior. More Edge like and less Focus. I wasn't a fan of all the angles and that central dash top pod when I test drove one. But I'll look at it in person again when I'm shopping in a year. I might just be missing something in the photos...

While I had my 2014 Escape, I was stopped somewhere and a guy driving a Hyundai something asked me "How did I like my Hyundai??" :censor:

But i'm impress with the tech they added.
Stop/start
Sync connect- there is an app for that
And much much more...

Design is so subjective, I find the new more fluid and less confusing then the old and I find it less Hyundai/Kia and more Edge then the old :shrug: The best part is I find it by far more masculine then the old. Although it's still kind of Santa Fe-ish, I don't necessarily think that's a bad thing. I also see that grille getting blacked-out as a possible SAP. The two character creases on the hood really add length and balance to the whole vehicle

Design is absolutely subjective and doesn't necessarily translate in photos. The nose is very Edge like and I'm sure that is what they were going for. I think my issue is the original 3rd gen Escape's design language was based on the Focus. Small and sporty. Lots of angles and creases to create a feel of movement and tension. The Edge is smoother and blockier (if that's a word). It's more upscale and relaxed. They grafted the 2 together and I'm just not sure it works as well as I would have liked it to. I wish it was pushed more towards the look of the Edge and it's simpler design language inside and out. But then again, this is just a mid-cycle refresh so I'm sure the budget wasn't there for major changes to the body.

Frenchy - My Equinox has OnStar which has an app that does most of the things Sync-Connect does. It is quite convenient to have. Hopefully Ford makes it affordable. Chevy makes you have at least the minimum OnStar Subscription ($200/yr) to access the features in my Model year (they include the app free for 5 years in the MY after mine :doh: )

The only thing I didn't really care for design wise on the old that they unfortunately chose not to address is the "D" pillar sweep forward and pinch at the top. It just looks weak to me and should have gone more "Edge" Maybe that's why I like this body style in black, it tends to hide all that. I wish they had some rear shots I'd like to see what else they did with the tail lights
