The MkC's are here!!

Postby Escape94 - June 5th, 2014, 8:20 pm

So I went to the local Ford dealership today as they were having a little ceremony to honor local veterans, and they were also demolishing the old used car building via Ford F-150 FX4 EB (i'll post pictures of that later). Anyway I spotted this right out front. Hot off the truck, delivered last night. Here you go:

I'm surprised that they didn't distinguish the rear end more than this... It still has a very Escape/Kuga influence, right down to the mismatched grey trim piece at the bottom...

I agree that the Escape's mismatched rear trim doesn't look the best, but Ford is hardly the only manufacturer to do this. I think the designer do it on purpose to break up the visual height of the vehicle from the rear view. I think most SUVs would look like minivans from behind if designers didn't play visual tricks on us.

I think Cadillac is the real offender here. The muffler or whatever it is hanging belong the rear bumper looks like a full diaper. :stifle: Ick.

I agree with you about the Caddy SRX. :stifle:

Drove the MB GLK. Didn't care for it. Love how MB charges you for options such as the engine. :lol:

You had an old SRX, didn't you? I always thought those looked cool. I much prefer that generation of SRX (w/the Northstar V8 and Ultraview roof) to the current version.

Mine was a 2007 SRX with the V6, Ultraview roof, etc. Liked the fact I could use regular gas instead of premium.

Way more attractive than I had thought it would be. The back end, though not perfect, is way more tolerable than I hold of the current model Escape.
