    *Note on Cargo Dimensions: Starting with the
    2000 model year, cargo dimensions for SUVs are
    covered by a new SAE (Society of Automotive
    Engineers) standard: J1100 “Motor Vehicle
    Dimensions.” Ford Motor Company followed this new
    standard when measuring the new 2001 Ford Escape’s
    cargo area. The new standard has not yet been
    uniformly implemented by all automotive
    manufacturers. Due to this differing way of
    measuring, the Escape’s rear cargo volume with the
    second row seat folded is not credited with being as
    generous as some of its competitors. However, using
    the old SAE measuring system, Escape’s cargo
    area is best-in-class.
