Well, those vehicle testing engineers are a messy lot, aren't they? An alert Autospies reader snapped this shot of the interior of a heavily masked 2008 Ford Escape. The major change from the current Escape dashboard layout (see below) is in the area of the center console, which is much narrower and adopts a vertically stacked design.

      I suppose they don't teach these Auto Spies how to take photographs, huh?

      Man, I could barely see through all that reflection on the window.

      Next time, use a Polarizer or stick the lens right up to the glass and cover it with a black backing to cut out the glare from the reflection.

      I see new hvac controls too.

      please note the new corporate stereo ... to me that is the biggest piece of news from this shot ...

      the 04+ was very cheap -ergonomically perfect, but very cheap.

      If they keep improving they'll catch up to Hyundai standards soon!

      A lot better than the current interior. The radio seems to be incorporated nicely. Now what would be cool is if they put the 3.5 into it.

      But if not, at least put the Fusion engine into it. Or squeeze more power out of the 3.0...give it like 240-245 hp...

      #10...I always thought it looked more like the Probe's steering wheel.

      wow, that old steering wheel's 2 piece design screams 1993 explorer.

      Seems pretty much better to me, never liked the current center dashboard design.

      Maybe the new CEO at Ford will breathe some life into its design team. It is sorely needed.
