My rear bar, as its a base model, its colour is two tone red/grey, with a black plastic/vinyl top part for protection.. All the models over here have it.. The other models like XLT's & so forth usually arent two tone tho.

Yes, the sports v6 models & the new model escape zd? are all one colour.

My bonnet was replaced with a 'new' one due to a fault by ford.. They swapped them at service.

I was considering the V6 escape limited model. It would have been the leather interior with a sun roof. With all the accessories i have on my 06 four pot XLT, the dealer calculated about forty thousand for a fully accessorised limited V6. For my wage bracket it was pushing the envelope too much.

So henceforth because of circumstances, this is why i had to choose my four cylinder 06 XLT escape. Stock standard mine was about $29,990. Fully accessorised plus government on road fees, the escape rounded of at $ 35, 000.

Hello escapedtroy. Yes i am aware that i didn't receive a very good deal. For a XLT V6 Sport pack at $25,000 you definitely scored a bargain. I must be residing in the wrong state. Actually i have heard that some south aussies, go to victoria or new south wales when they are looking for a good deal in new cars. :) Not sure what all my accessories cost.

At the moment i have all these items on it: Side steps. Four wind deflectors on all four windows. Stainless steel scuff plates on bottom edge of door jambs. After market tinting ,on all four door windows plus the tailgate glass. Rust proofing treatment on under carriage. Genuine lambswool seat covers ,that were tailor made for front bucket seats. Towing bar with power plug for trailer lights. Dark tint bug deflector with ' Escape' logo in white text. A heavy duty gauge nudge bar, by the queensland firm of " East Coast Bull Bars". Two high wattage " Nite Stalker" spotlights.
