How Does the Versatile Ford Escape SUV Match up to its Toyota Competitor?

We know that our customers have an abundance of compact crossovers to choose as they travel from Springfield, PA to Glenolden and points beyond, so how do you decide which model is the best for you? You can spend hours and hours researching the various options, or you can turn to our convenient had-to-head comparisons. We invite you to keep reading and discover how the Ford Escape compares to the Toyota RAV4.

2018 Ford Escape vs. Toyota RAV4

  •  Pricing; If you're focused on your budget, then the Ford Escape delivers far better value with a base MSRP that's more than $500 less than the RAV4's starting MSRP. Add in the fact that the Escape includes five years of 24-hour Roadside Assistance should you need it, while the RAV4 only provides two years of complimentary coverage, and it's easy to see where the cost-savings with the Escape quickly add up.
  • Performance: When you're looking for a compact SUV that delivers the power you want at the time you ask for it, the Escape rises to the occasion much quicker than does the RAV4. The 2018 Escape delivers 245 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, while the RAV4 can only produce 194 horsepower and 172 pound-feet of torque -- a difference that's quite evident when you're trying to get past sluggish road traffic.
  • Safety: According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the standard safety features found on the Escape do a better job of protecting drivers and passengers in the event of a head-on collision, earning a 5-Star Overall Front Crash Rating compared to the RAV4's 4-Star rating.
  • Interior Comfort: Rear-seat passengers are rooting to ride in the Escape rather than the RAV4 since they get more headroom and legroom in the Ford than the Toyota provides. That makes long road trips all that much more enjoyable for everyone, frankly.
  • Capability: The 2018 Ford Escape offers better stability than the RAV4, thanks to its longer wheelbase. If you enjoy taking off for weekend outdoor adventures, it's notable that the Escape boasts a tow rating that's twice that of the RAV4, which means it's easier for you to tow the toys you want to take along.
