I have noticed that when out driving Latan. Periodically a few early models are seen being driven. As for my 06 assembly escape, only the odd few are out on the road. Also for that new escape with the cosmetic design change, the sightings in traffic are a rare occurence. :shrug:

Does the Tribute still sell down under? I wonder what the sales are for that model. If it does, you might combine the Escape sales and the Tribute sales for a total. IMO, most people are concerned more with the utility of the machine than the actual lable it carries. They might do like me and consider the differences incidental. :shrug: I got a better deal at the Mazda house than any Ford house here, so we have the Mazda Tribute instead of the one labled Escape. :peace:

The Tribute is not sold in Australia any more. Not sure when they stopped it but they last couple were sold this year by the sales figures.

Previously the Tribute sales were double that of the Escape. When we bought our Escape (2002) you would easily see half a dozen Tributes on the road before another Escape.
