It’s been a year and a half or so since I first drove the current-gen Ford Escape down in Kentucky, before anyone heard the word, COVID, and I still don’t know what to make of it.

QOTD: Will the Ford Bronco Sport Kill the Escape?

I was running an errand earlier this week and spotted a Ford Bronco Sport street parked on Chicago’s famed State Street. Coincidentally, I had just tested one off-road a bit over a week prior. The baby Bronco impressed me on our first drive, despite some flaws. And our own Adam Tonge has argued that the […] The post QOTD: Will the Ford Bronco Sport Kill the Escape? appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Junkyard Find: 2011 Mercury Mariner, Last Gasp of the Mercury Brand Edition

Ever since I found one of the very last Oldsmobiles in a Denver car graveyard, I’ve been keeping my junkyard eye open for other final-year-of-marque Detroit machinery. We’ve got the 1998 Eagle, the 2001 Plymouth, and the 2010 Pontiac, and now it’s time for one of the very last vehicles to wear the Mercury badge: […] The post Junkyard Find: 2011 Mercury Mariner, Last Gasp of the Mercury Brand Edition appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Ford Camera Recall Encompasses 700,000 in North America

Ford is recalling over 700,0000 vehicles in North America over poor electrical connections that can put the rearview camera display on the fritz.

A Return to Reading

It took me a long while before I read on my own for pleasure. As a youngster, I could read, but it took me (as compared to others) a lot longer to read the same amount. I later learned, that's because I devour each word.  In my early 20s after college, when I was reading for me and not under time constraints of others, I became a voracious reader. I read mystery, suspense, Southern fiction, non-fiction, running books, historical fiction and more. 10 years ago, when I started RunnerDude's F...

Creating a Life You Don’t Want to Escape

I was watching people walk around the streets today with their heads down in their smartphones, oblivious to the world around them, the beautiful fall day, and the sky. They were unmindful of the danger of smacking into a signpost or getting hit by a taxi. Why is there so much escapism in our society? Digital escapes. Drinking escapes. Shopping escapes. Exercise escapes. And even vacations to get away from a life that feels like it’s not quite what we expected. I was like this too, until a m...

Tortoise escapes very slowly

A case of wanderlust overtook a 100-year-old tortoise in England last week. Fred, as his owners of over 30 years know him, escaped from his home and headed out to see the world, only to be found and returned home a week later not far from where he started. Moving at a rate of just .006 miles per hour, Fred made it only one mile up the road during his week-long absence. Still, the escaped tortoise caused a bout of chaos in the small, English village of Blackfield, Hampshire, as owners Terry an...

Cat escapes in JFK airport

Cats are independent creatures; this is well-known by anyone who’s ever owned one. These adventurous felines often don’t mind a good adventure, but a cat named Pepper in New York City took her feisty spirit a bit too far — she escaped and spent a week roaming around John F. Kennedy Airport. The journey started in Terminal 4 at JFK, where Pepper escaped from her owners as they checked in for a flight to China. Pepper took off unspotted, making his way through the terminal and eventually into a...

‘The Escape’ Trailer: Gemma Arterton Runs Away from Her Family to Find Herself in Paris

While audiences might know Gemma Arterton best from being a Bond girl in Quantum of Solace, or from being the female supporting player in forgettable franchise starters like Clash of the Titans and Prince of Persia, the British actress has so much more to give on screen, and her latest dramatic entry looks to remind everyone of that. The Escape follows Gemma Arterton as a wife and mother who is pushed to the edge by the mundane, thankless life she’s accepted for years. Her husband (Dominic Coop...
