I have been thinking, and reading all this input about power, chassis refinements, special operations of Ford building a one off Escape. Nobody so far has really put together something that is truly missing in the Escape's repetoire:
An SVT Raptor type Hybrid!
Just think about that for a minute. Sound wierd? Sorry, but nobody else is building one. I bet there would be a heck of a market for one though. Electric motors could do the crawling far better than gasoline engined Escapes with all the torque available. Still sound weird? I think it's the wave of the future. Don't flame me too badly. Just thinking outside the sandbox is all. :hi:
