It does look and feel like a larger Focus, especially on the inside. Obviously I sit higher and like the greater visibility. I read somewhere that the Escape is what would happen if you hooked an air hose to a Focus and pumped it up. I figure the key to good mileage is to try and keep the engine out of turbo as much as possible, but when you need it, man oh man, it's there.
