Compact SUVs at Maritime Ford Offer Efficient Alternatives for Winter Drivers Versatile Lineup Showcases Efficiency as Well as Power

MANITOWOC, Wis., Feb. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- This Wisconsin winter has already produced polar temperatures and precipitation figures that have made previous winters seem mild by comparison. A result of these conditions has underscored the importance of a viable winter vehicle, one capable of producing dependable performance for a wide range of drivers. Ford has answered the call with an efficient pair of compact sport utility vehicles to navigate these conditions, and they can be found at Maritime Ford in Manitowoc, Wis.


As the most compact of the Ford crossovers, the 2014 Escape delivers outstanding performance in an unassuming package. Its available 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine boasts 240 horsepower while maintaining an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-estimated 30 mpg on the highway. Paired with the standard six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission and an aerodynamic design, the Edge delivers a sturdy drive in less-than-ideal conditions, a factor of great importance to Wisconsin drivers.

Travellers who desire a slightly heftier vehicle may opt for the 2014 Ford Edge. While the 2.0-liter EcoBoost is also available in the Edge, many choose the 3.7-liter V-6 with Twin-Independent Variable Cam Timing. This engine produces a best-in-class 305 horsepower while still maintaining an EPA-estimated 27 mpg on the highway. It also features AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control, allowing the winter driver to conquer the elements with confidence.

Both the 2014 Ford Escape and Edge are currently available at Maritime Ford, located south of Green Bay in Manitowoc, Wis. To inquire further or to schedule a test drive, call the dealership at 920-684-0261 or visit
