Ford Escape vs Honda CR-V

  • The first detail that many drivers are likely to notice is usually the price tag. With similar MSRPs, this is basically a tie, although the base price for the Escape is lower by about one hundred dollars. As you work up through the trims the price gap becomes more significant, with the CR-V commanding far more, for a far less luxurious experience than the Ford Escape.
  • With the upgraded SYNC® system, the Ford Escape provides a technologically-advanced experience, for less money than the comparably over-priced and under-equipped CR-V.
  • With a quiet and roomy interior, drivers may not expect an agile performance, but the Ford Escape manages to deliver a tight, dynamic drive, while the Honda CR-V feels very much like a larger vehicle in its handling. 
  • According to The Car Connection, the Ford Escape takes the cake in regards to fuel economy. The Escape is rates at 33 miles per gallon and the Honda CR-V hits 29 miles per gallon combined. 
  • If you are planning on going off road with the Escape, not to worry, the Ford Escape has optional all-wheel drive and can tow up to 3,500 pounds.

Ultimately, the Ford Escape seems to deliver an experience that closely rivals the CR-V in many regards, while easily overshadowing the Honda model in many others.
