Here a picture of our 19 parked between many buddies at ETI.
We left the model number out, going only with Escape on the front.
(just to show the difference)

I like the font size on the 5.0 in your photo. Maybe with the other models smaller lettering, to one side and up higher might be nicer.

I also decided to delete the 19 on the front for our build. I like the look of it better, and the 19 is on the back anyway.

Kinda looks more to me like the car dealer decals that I usually remove on my cars. It's a bit overwhelming and I don't need a large reminder of what model I purchased in my rear view mirror.
Smaller or removed would probably be much better. I may end up removing it, but I'll have to do it soon or I'll have it outlined in white.
My next thing is to replace the spare tire cover with something more subdued as well.

On the other hand, if you catch a glimpse of a f.g. trailer while underway, it's much easier to establish if it's an Escape. They probably could have made the size slightly smaller though.

Funny Greg! That big Maple Leaf is my favorite feature of the Escape graphics; along with the "Proudly Made In British Columbia" lettering. A great source of conversation for lookie-loos .....

I agree, it is a great attention getter, in a good way.

Happy for those that want to keep the factory one.
We'd simply prefer something that has more of a relationship to our situation something like:

Removed our graphics with no regrets other than not knowing I could have saved $150 by deleting from build sheet. A classic case of beauty being in the eye of the beholder. Our tire cover got ripped with a previous bike rack riding too close so will be replacing that at some point. Admire Myron''s colorful cover that looks like New Mexico. Greg, that sun looks great ; like AZ too
