Yes! Got tired of waiting for the update to come in and called the dealership this past Tuesday and my 'scape was in. Picked it up today in the early evening, so it was dark out when I got it and was hard to really get a good look at the exterior, but it looks nice under the lights. As a reminder, I ordered a 4cyl., Steel Blue, FWD XLT with Stone interior and it's got the SAT radio with Sync.
My first impression is that it looks small on the outside and feels big on the inside - love the feel of the smallish steering wheel in my hands and really glad I went with the Stone interior - like the multi shades of grey. Build quality seems to be on the high side. My Wife's first impression was that it sounded and feels like an "import/Civic/Accord" (not a bad thing) compared to the extra large (3.5L V6) luxurious 08 Taurus Limited and her Daily driver, 03 Expedition XLT (5.4L V8). Lookin' forward to many good miles.

Indeed they are nice trucks.

The 4 cylinder in the 3rd generation models isn't too shabby either.

Interesting...it's a good looking truck. I just saw a light metallic blue Escape on the way home yesterday. I really do like that color best of all the blues.

Thanks for the nice comments and am happy with the color choice for for sure, although would have been happy with many others. There is a lot of metallic in this paint - not sure if it comes out in the pics as it does in person. Looking at some pics of our old Expedition, it's pretty close to the old Wedgewood color. I'm really enjoying driving and listening to the Sirius radio as well (love the 80s station). The sound quality is better than I expected, not being the top level version.

With the snow coming our way, I guess I''ll see how it does in the nasty stuff. Looking at the Michelins, they look like their designed for a quiet ride and long wear rather than ultimate grip, so we'll see. So much for the nice shiney new paint.
