An Escape-based Lincoln crossover? Sounds like it would be a total snooze, right? Could be a lot worse. The 2.0L Ecoboost is under the hood and it looks fairly production-ready.

    Saw elsewhere that this thing isn't projected to hit showrooms until 2016. Three years away? So, what, it'll be a year and a half behind the vehicles it benchmarks by the time it goes on sale?

      Hits the showrooms this fall as a 2014. This "concept" is about 98% production.

    Seems like one part Evoque, one part Q5, and one part Infiniti EX, ahem, Infiniti QX50, in the styling. It's a good segment for Lincoln to be in, and if they sell some of these, maybe we can get a flagship.

  • El scotto My iPhone gets too hot while using the wireless charging in my BMW. One more line on why someone is a dumbazz list?
  • Buickman yeah, get Ron Fellows each time I get a Vette. screw Caddy.
  • Dusterdude The Detroit 2.5 did a big disservice by paying their CEO’s so generously ( overpaying them ) It is a valid talking point for for the union ) However , the bottom line - The percentage of workers in the private sector who have a defined benefit pension plan is almost non existent - and the reason being is it’s unaffordable ! . This is a a huge sticking point as to have lower tier workers join would be prohibitive ( aside from other high price demands being requested - ie >30% wage gain request ) . Do the math - can a company afford to pay employees for 35 years , followed by funding a pension for a further 30 years ?
  • El scotto Human safety driver? Some on here need a human safety thinker.
  • Carlson Fan Stupid vehicle, that can't do any of the things a truck should be able to do. If I want something fast/quick and sporty I'll get a corvette or a 4 dr sport sedan. Taking a truck & neutering it to try and make it into something it's not is just pointless. But maybe that's the point of this road disaster
