The 2008 Ford Escape receives a makeover inside and out featuring a bolder, rugged design, higher beltline, raised hood and a new front fascia with headlights that sweep up toward the front corners of the vehicle to short side marker lights. The interior features seating surfaces comprised of 100 percent post-industrial materials, a revised dashboard with “a top of dash” display, Electric Power Assisted Steering system, improved center console, Ice Blue interior lighting. A number of updates have been made to reduce noise, vibration and harshness levels inside the SUV including changes to the roof panel for a better airflow, a new acoustic laminate sandwiched between two glass panels in the windshield and new carpeting. Under the hood is a 2.3-liter 16-valve Duratec 23 4-cylinder engine that produces 153 horsepower and 152 lb-ft of torque mated to either a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic. Optional is a 200-horsepower 3.0-liter 24-valve V6.

My 2008 Escape by jsjohnson3 on 10/25/2010. Trim: 2008 Ford Escape XLT FWD I4, Owned 3 years.

Pros: I love the capacity & the option to place the rear seats down & be able to carry large items. It is also perfect for my large Yellow Lab. I like sitting a bit higher than normal cars....feels like it gives me an edge!
Cons: The shiny black paint that adorns the back of the front side windows & the front of the rear side windows is an eye-sore. When this began, I was 30 days out of mileage warranty & Ford would not help.
Overall review: I love my Escape & will most definitely buy a new one...........I will be watchful of the unique finishes & watch them like a hawk.
