Test drove the ST

Drove a Tangerine Scream ST2 today just to see what it was all about. I already knew the 2.0 EcoBoost would be great as I have a 2013 Escape and it's a gem of an engine.

Took it out on some back roads, was very impressed the power and sharp handling of this thing! Road noise was high with the tires and ride was stiff as expected, not sure how it would wear on you in daily driving, but expected for the performance.

Loved the seats, 6 speed transmission, supplimental gauges, and engine note was awsome especially for a 4 cylinder engine! Interior dash and door material quality noticeably lower than my 2013 Escape and it was missing some features that I believe an ST should come with---namely dimming rearview mirror, rain sensing wipers, and universal garage door opener.

I am happy that Ford is putting out vehicles like this, as I can connect with these like I did when they had the full SVT model line out. I always knew the styling and hatchback of the ST was not for me but love the powertrain and chassis.

Looking forward to Ford coming out with a Fusion ST, with a 6 speed manual. I will trade the Escape immediately for it.
