The latest model in the Lakeview Ford Lincoln "Richard's Ride" feature is a 2015 Ford Escape Titanium 4WD. The Escape nameplate has been around a while, but the vehicle underwent a complete redesign in 2013 from a boxier, SUV-style to a rounded, crossover-style vehicle.

I'll be interested especially in feeling how Ford's EcoBoost engine - a four-cylinder with the torque of a six-cylinder - performs, both in terms of acceleration and fuel economy.

The small crossover segment is a popular one, with just about every automaker offering a model that fits the description. In the coming week, we'll show you some of the features of Ford's newest Escape. Don't want to wait? Visit Lakeview Ford anytime and see the vast selection of Escapes on the lot right now!
