Ford Kuga
Ford Kuga
The Ford Kuga crossover, just introduced in Europe, is about the same size as the Ford Escape we can buy here in the States. But where the Escape looks like a truck-like SUV the Kuga is clearly a car-based crossover.

Ford hasn't announced anything, but according to some media reports, the Kuga could be on its way to the U.S., where it may take over the Escape name.

That would make good sense. Although the Escape is still selling pretty well, the U.S. market is moving away from anything that even resembles a truck-based SUV.

"It looks like where this market is going," said IntelliChoice.com's James Bell.

Again, bringing the European model here will move Ford up from having an OK product to having something really good.
