About a month ago, I had the chance to attend the Ford Escape for the Day event as part of the Escape’s nationwide tour, so my sister and I headed to the Sheraton Cavalier hotel in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan to learn about the 2013 Ford Escape and spend the day enjoying some fun activities. The event started with a drive to the Western Development Museum, where we got the chance to drive through a closed course and see firsthand the way Ford is using the latest technology to make driving as safe as it can be.
Driving on the closed course was really something else. From swerving around pylons to a brake test to sudden obstacle avoidance, the way we were told to drive the cars through the course was nothing like everyday driving. “Put the pedal to the floor and don’t let up until it’s time to slam on the brakes,” I was told, and the fun-loving daredevil in me came out full force as I sped through the course with my slightly frightened sister beside me.
