    2013 Ford Escape Off-Road Misadventure & Review

    The new 2013 Ford Escape has what Ford calls intelligent Four Wheel Drive.

    However the smart AWD system is very sophisticated and monitors 25 different parameters over a 100 times a second to keep the new Escape on the road.

    When you take the vehicle off-road, the system automatically send power to the wheels with the most traction.

    Of course we wanted to know how well the new 2013 Ford Escape would do in the rugged and snowy Colorado Mountains.

    In another fun and informative TFLcar review we really put this new small Crossover to test and find out that sometimes technology is no substitute for the right, or perhaps wrong, tire choice for serious off-road driving.

    BTW: You can watch an on-road review of the new 2013 Ford Escape HERE.

    According to Ford: “The technology features in Escape don’t merely elevate your driving experience – they take it to a new level. There’s the available foot-activated liftgate you open by simply kicking your foot under the bumper. With hands on the wheel and eyes on the road, available SYNC® with MyFord Touch® lets you make calls and control your music with simple voice commands.* Standard AdvanceTrac® with RSC® (Roll Stability Control™) helps keep you out of harm’s way through a series of corrective actions when you swerve or corner too quickly.** When a vehicle is detected in your blind spot zone, available BLIS® with cross-traffic alert is designed to alert you. There’s even an available feature, active park assist, that virtually parallel parks Escape for you. The technology in Ford Escape – literally changing the way you drive.” – – Ford.com

    1. Hi guys.
      Great videos.
      It would be interesting to see the Escape back on the snowy “trail” with appropriate quality winter rubber.
      Keep it up!
