2013 Ford Escape is going to the dogs
With the number of dog owners in the U.S. at an all-time high, its a good thing that Ford recognizes our furry friends and has designed a vehicle that is dog and pet friendly. Ford has announced their pet-friendly features on the all-new 2013 Ford Escape and we can say it has definitely gone to the dogs. Even though June 22nd was the National Take Your Dog to Work Day, most dogs get to ride with their owners all year long.
And dog ownership is growing at a fast rate. There are currently close to 80 million owned dogs in the U.S. Thirty-nine percent of U.S. households own at least one dog, and twenty-eight percent of dog owners own two dogs. And twelve percent of dog owners own three or more dogs. So Ford is smart when they have designed the 2013 Ford Escape with all the special dog-friendly features.
Pet-friendly features on the Ford Escape
Ford is tapping into a huge market of dog owners and have given them what they need in the 2013 Ford Escape. Dogs and their owners will appreciate the animal-friendly features on the all-new SUV.
It starts with the rear-view camera that is offered on the new Escape. Many times the dog is loose and runs behind the car without the drivers knowledge. The camera can alert the driver before there is an incident.
The next handy feature is the lower bumper height on the 2013 Ford Escape. This allows the dogs to jump in and out the vehicle more easily without the owner having to lift the animal in.
