  • Craving performance? The Ford Escape offers engines that pack up to 245 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque while the Honda CR-V tops out at 190 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque, so the Escape is the clear choice for thrill seekers. This extra power also allows Monroe, CT drivers to tow up to 3,500 pounds with the Ford Escape, which is 2,000 pounds more than the Honda CR-V can handle.
  • To keep passengers comfortable, the Ford Escape comes with more legroom for the front row and a wider back seat than what you'll find in the Honda CR-V, so, even with five passengers, no one feels cramped. Plus, the Escape offers a panoramic sunroof that gives the cabin a fresher feel with more light and air than the Honda CR-V and its smaller sunroof.
  • The Ford Escape also offers a range of features, like skid plates for those looking to explore and Enhanced Active Park Assist for trickier parking jobs, that car shoppers won't get to enjoy in the Honda CR-V no matter how much you pay.

The Ford Escape vs. The Toyota RAV4

  • The Ford Escape is one of the most fun-to-drive crossovers on the market as it has agile handling that gives you total control over the 245 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, which are specs that easily speed by the 176 horsepower and 172 pound-feet of torque in the Toyota RAV4.
  • Looking for value? The Ford Escape has a lower starting price while still coming standard with features, like an electric parking brake, that aren't standard on the base Toyota RAV4.
  • Comfort and convenience are key traits of the Ford Escape, and that shows with its design, it has a wider back seat than the Toyota RAV4, and its features, it offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto while the RAV4 does not.



The Ford Escape vs. The Hyundai Santa Fe

  • Looking to save a buck or two? The Ford Escape has a starting price that's over $1,000 lower than the Hyundai Santa Fe while also offering the more efficient standard engine, so it saves you in the long and short term.
  • The Hyundai Santa Fe comes closer than the other models in the comparison to matching the power of the Ford Escape, but it still falls short regarding performance. The Ford Escape has the more powerful engines, optional 4-wheel drive, and better driving dynamics than the Hyundai Santa Fe and the Escape can tow more weight.
  • The Ford Focus packs in a ton of features without making them obtrusive, like the available rain-sensing windshield wipers and parallel parking assist system, which Newton car shoppers won't find on the Hyundai Santa Fe.
