Ford Creates An Eminently Practical Crossover SUV... Atonement For The Excursion, Perhaps?
Pros: Smooth, pleasant handling, refined CVT powertrain, stunning interior versatility, residual Volvo solidity and comfort.
Cons: Hard plastic dominates the interior, and it's not for driving enthusiasts... but what SUV is?
