Ford Escape vs the Competition

The 2018 Ford Escape is a versatile, stylish, and reliable midsize SUV. If you're currently seeking out the right midsize SUV, this one would be perfect for your adventures around the Doylestown, Philadelphia, and Warminster area. However, most drivers like to get a sense of the market before they make their choice of which vehicle they want. So to help you along the way, our team at Fred Beans Ford of Doylestown is going to take a look at the Ford Escape vs the competition.


The Midsize SUV Competition

The midsize SUV class has grown in popularity over the years due to a variety of factors. They offer just enough cargo space while retaining the agility, handling, and the efficiency of a compact car, hatchback, or sedan. These vehicles are perfect for young professionals, growing families, and the more sporty and active motorists.

Other than the Ford Escape, the most popular midsize SUVs are:


Chevy Equinox                  Nissan Rogue                    Toyota RAV4

Kia Sorento                        Honda CR-V                       Hyundai Santa Fe Sport


How Do These Vehicles Compare to the Ford Escape


Considering that all these vehicles are in the same automotive class, there's certainly a lot to compare. However, there's also a lot to contrast due to the notable differences within each vehicle. Most of these vehicles feature a 2.5 or 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine capable of surpassing 160 horsepower. The Chevy Equinox offers a 1.5-liter 4-cylinder turbo engine, but after reviewing its 170 horsepower capabilities, we don't really see the turbo aspect of the vehicle. The Ford Escape offers a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine as its standard, however, it offers some notable upgraded engines including the 2.0-liter EcoBoost® 4-cylinder, which delivers a best-in-class 245 horsepower for the 4-cylinder engines.



Each of these midsize SUVs comes with a wide assortment of features. Most of these vehicles alter between 4 or 6 speaker sound systems to deliver the audio entertainment. However, some of the midsize SUVs lack a crucial component: the infotainment system. While these systems are sometimes available with the higher trims, the Ford Escape offers its SYNC® system at the base level. On top of that, the SYNC® system features voice recognition as a standard feature while most vehicles in this class require several upgrades for this convenient technology.



While standard SUVs tend to cost a pretty penny, midsize SUVs are generally just above the full-size sedan class when it comes to price. But after taking a look at these different midsize SUVs, we couldn't help but notice that the Ford Escape is one of the most affordable, especially when compared to the Kia Sorento and the Toyota RAV4. In fact, the Ford Escape MSRP rests a few thousand dollars below these vehicle prices.
