If it were a crossover it wouldn't be a truck :yes: . It's an SUV, so therefore it's a truck :thumb: . Just not a plumbing truck! :doh:

Yea, I get complaints from the full size truck people too about calling it a truck. I said, "Sorry, you're right it's not a truck. It gets better gas mileage, handles better and is faster than a truck." (Mostly true anyways lol) But damnit, Ford sure made it look like a truck! I do try to call it a crossover, to keep the local ******** happy.

We love our Escape, and I call it "the truck" all the time. Mainly because my daily driver is a 2002 Chevy Cavalier and it doesn't qualify. Unlike some people, I actually use ours as a utility vehicle...I have hauled sod in it among other things because for as much money as we paid for it...I'm using it to haul things!

We paid plenty, but it's a Utility vehicle, and my wife uses it as one too! It isn't much for getting groceries, but it's been to the Nursery for garden supplies, the lumberyard for my m-i-l needing some planks, my son borrowed it to haul some dirt in! That last one tripped my trigger. We do have a pickup! And he does have a PT Cruiser beater that he could have used! Sheesh! The humanity!

When I hauled dirt and sod in mine, I just put a tarp over the cargo area and I hauled everything down the hill to the common dumping area next to my property. Only a few pieces of dirt ended up on the carpet and my trusty shop vac took care of it! Still looks new except for all the dog hair!

I've used mine to haul all sorts of building materials including lumber, bricks, landscaping blocks and patio blocks. I even loaded a large Futon back there at one point. It didn't quite fit... thank goodness for bungee cords :D



It's been a very flexable vehicle...
