Ford rubber mats for 2017 Escape SE
I just purchased a new 2017 Escape along with the all season rubber mats, and noticed that the rear row rubber mats do not cover the rear row floor area completely. They are smaller than the carpet mat counterparts; while the rear row carpet mats cover the floor nicely. The two front row rubber mats have the same size of the carpet mats, and they have the "Escape" imprints on them. However, the rear row rubber mats do not have the "Escape" on them.
I have contacted my dealer and they told me that is the case for 2017 Escape. They said that I indeed have the correct rubber mats for 2017 Escape, and the rear row rubber mats are smaller than the carpet counterparts.
I do not understand how this could happen with Ford. I mean the whole point of getting the rubber mats is to prevent the floor carpet being damaged or worn out from rain or dirt or snow etc. If they don't cover the floor completely, what is the point of getting the Ford customized floor mats, instead of some random mats from the market? Also, if Ford can tailor the carpet mats to fit the vehicle, why can't they do it for rubber mats?
Can some one who has the rubber mats for 2017 Escape please confirm if the rubber mats are indeed smaller than the carpet mats? I still suspicious that I got the wrong rear row mats because they don't have the "Escape" imprint on them.
Thank you all for your time and advises if any.
