Frankie's first favorite car was a 1968 Ford Mustang, and he's had a strong appreciation for the nameplate ever since. Later in his youth he became infatuated with Eleanor, thanks to Nicholas Cage's stellar performance.

Frank's a real jokester, too.

  1. I took delivery on my Dark Persian Green Metallic 2020 Escape on December 21, 2019! This is not a “new” offering.

  2. The model year, sir, the model year. The color is new for the 2020 model year.

    Once more incase that wasn’t clear – this is a new color on the Escape for the 2020 model year. It was not offered on the Escape before the 2020 model year.

    This means the previous generation Escape, which ended with the 2019 model year, did not have it.

    So, yeah, it’s very much a “new” offering.

    Thanks for reading!

  3. Not green! Just got my Edge, expecting something like a Range Rover Hunter Green. Not anywhere close! This is blue. Granted, it’s a pretty blue, but…misleading branding and description of the color.

  4. My mil just got hers! It’s BLUE. Nothing like the catalog. Very deceiving. She is NOT happy. I think it’s pretty, but blue
