Discover How the New Ford Escape Compares to its Glenolden, PA Rival

Compact SUVs are extremely popular these days, providing drivers with car-like handling as well as the utility and capability for which SUVs are famed. Two head-of-the-class options for Springfield, PA area drivers are the Ford Escape and the Honda CR-V, so we thought it wise to put together this handy comparison. Read on to see how they fare in a head-to-head matchup.

2018 Ford Escape vs. Honda CR-V

  •  Pricing: The base Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price for the Ford Escape is around $300 less than that of the base CR-V's, so you save money right from the start by choosing the 2018 Escape. Of course, there are some savings that don't necessarily show up when you compare invoices; for example, the Escape comes with five years of 24-hour Roadside Assistance should you need it, while the CR-V only offers three years of coverage.
  • Performance: Frankly, this category's almost unfair to include. The 2018 Ford Escape delivers far greater performance numbers than the CR-V can manage, making it the obvious choice for drivers who want power on demand to pass slower traffic and ascend hilly roads. The Escape makes a maximum 245 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, while the CR-V tops out at 190 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque.
  • Capability: The 2018 Ford Escape boasts a towing capacity of up to 3,500 pounds, while the CR-V is limited to a maximum towing ability of merely 1,500 pounds. The SUVs feature nearly the same wheelbase lengths, but the extra expanse delivered by the Escape offers improved stability on the road.
  • Features: Both the Escape and the CR-V come with a long list of standard features, such as auxiliary audio input, MP3 players, power driver mirror, power steering, auto-off headlights, and wireless cell phone hookup. The Escape, however, includes some standard amenities that are options on the CR-V, like energy-efficient HID headlights, rear parking aid, and a premium audio system. Adding those features to the Honda is going to run up the price tag in a hurry.
