Congratulations to the 2013 Ford Escape for being the first vehicle ever awarded the title “Popular Mechanics Car of the Year”! It’s not unusual for the service magazine to focus on the automotive industry (along with all things related to technology, science, and home improvement) but this year PM took its interest a step further in ranking 2013 vehicles according to fun factor, performance, design, etc. The magazine calls the Escape “a capable hauler, athletic driver, and an all-around great car” and says its editors consistently ranked the Escape at the top of most categories.
