The good people at Ford Motor Company of Canada are putting me in a 2013 Ford Escape for a week. I just picked it up and it's pretty sweet.
Here she is partially loaded up for our camping trip. We depart Monday morning for The Pinery Provincial Park so I can literally unplug for a few days.
Remember folks, Ford didn't receive a bailout. They survived the crisis on their own, and that says something. If my Mazda Protege ever gives out on me, I could see myself in a Ford... maybe a Ford Fusion Hybrid.
In the meantime, I'm looking forward to my week-long escape in the Escape.
