See how the Ford Escape stacks up to the Competition

Whether you're planning to seat your kids, your friends, or enjoy the ample space for yourself, the Ford Escape will be a homerun for Coon Rapids drivers. The Ford Escape gives you a lot to think about, whether you're working hard or playing hard, but it's not just another pretty fascia on the road; it has substance and gives you the features that you want most.

While the Escape is a great new SUV, it isn't the only one on the market today, which is why we want you to invest some time in researching the options available to you. We know you deserve to have the right vehicle, and making an informed decision is part of your right as a consumer. Here are some of the ways the Escape can be a great fit for Jefferson, Guthrie Center, Audubon, IA, customers over the Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, and Jeep Cherokee.

Ford Escape vs. Jeep Cherokee

  • Performance: While both of these models offer 4WD, the Escape offers better fuel economy. The Cherokee also offers 184 horsepower on its 2.4-liter engine, while the Escape offers a 2.0-liter engine with 245 horsepower.
  • Features: Automatic climate control allows you to keep everyone cool even in the most abrasive situations, but the Cherokee doesn't have it available on all trim levels, while the Escape has it available. The Escape believes that navigation should be standard, while the Cherokee believes it should merely be optional.
  • Comfort: Heated front seats comes only as an option in the trims on the Jeep Cherokee, but they are offered standard on the Escape. The Escape also offers leather seats, while the Cherokee just has upgraded cloth or velour.
  • Safety: The optional parking distance sensors are standard on the Escape Titanium, giving you a reason to question why you have to spend more for a Cherokee to get that feature.



Ford Escape vs. Toyota RAV4

  • Performance: The RAV4 doesn't offer 4WD like the Escape does, plus it offers less horsepower and torque than the Escape. In addition, the Escape can tow 2,000 pounds versus the RAV4's 1,500 pounds of maximum towing.
  • Comfort: The RAV4 has vinyl seats, which are not as inviting as the leather seats available in the Escape. This is something we hear from our Carroll, IA, customers a lot.
  • Horsepower: The RAV4 offers a 2.5-liter engine with 176 horsepower, but the Escape has a 2.0-liter engine available with 245 horsepower. Not only is it less powerful, but the RAV4 engine isn't recommended for towing like the Escape is.
  • Features: Navigation is standard on the Escape, while it's only an option on the RAV4. Also an option is the parking distance sensors that you get on the Escape Titanium.

Ford Escape vs. Honda CR-V

  • Performance: The Honda CR-V offers all-wheel drive, which is great, but it's not the same as the Escape's available 4WD. Plus, the CR-V can only tow 1,500 pounds, while the Escape can tow 2,000 pounds.
  • Pricing: The Escape will cost you much less than the CR-V will, and this also means that you don't get the same features on the CR-V that you get on the Escape. That means that the standard navigation system on the Escape won't cost you extra, while it isn't even available on the CR-V.
  • Features: The Escape offers Panora, IA, drivers voice-activated controls, while the CR-V does not. The interior of the Escape is also more comfortable, with leather seats available, but the CR-V only has cloth seats offered.
  • Horsepower: The CR-V offers a 2.4-liter engine that delivers 184 horsepower, while the Escape's 2.0-liter engine offers 245 horsepower. This is just one of the reasons why it is such a popular model in our new Ford model inventory.
