On Monday we presented this week’s shifter and asked you to identify the make and model of the vehicle from whence it came. The tall, trucklike shifter helped several of you recognize the car, a 2001 Ford Escape XLS. The first commenter to correctly identify this first-generation Escape was Zachary Young. He’ll receive a Save the Manuals button and sticker as a reward.
The Escape pictured here is from our December 2001 issue. The base, front-wheel-drive model got up to 60 mph in 11 seconds, which isn’t bad considering its anemic 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine made just 127 hp.
