New SUV offers fuel-economy and towing ability

ALEXANDRIA, Ky., June 28, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The evolution of vehicles that have been the go-to models for moving families and their various accessories have evolved from station wagons that would rival a World War II battleship in terms of curb weight and turning radius, to minivans that lack style and panache, to finally the crossover SUV that combines eye-catching exterior designs with nimble handling characteristics and world-class fuel-efficiency and cargo capacity. Just about every major auto manufacturer has a crossover SUV to bring to market and one of the most popular and well received by critics and the public alike is the 2014 Ford Escape in Cincinnati, OH that is now available from Mike Castrucci of Alexandria.
