I cast my eye over the base model Ford Escape Ambiente.
Replacing the Ford Kuga, the Escape is a descent mid-size SUV offering that is attractive and fun to drive.
The Ambiente I tested came in a six-speed manual with a 1.5L turbo engine priced from $28,490.
A great place to start to get a feel for the range…
