Make Your Crossover SUV Search Simpler When Comparing the Ford Escape Near Detroit

No vehicle class has expanded as rapidly as the crossover SUV category in the past few years. The versatility, style, and value of new crossover SUVs draw in many drivers, and you can find one of the best at Taylor Ford. The new Ford Escape in Taylor, MI stands tall among the competition in a few different ways, and we're ready to highlight those for car shoppers considering a new SUV. Below, we compare the Ford Escape with crossovers from Honda, Jeep, and Chevy, so read on before deciding which model is for you!

Ford Escape vs. Chevy Equinox

  • These are both smaller SUVs with plenty of style for the exterior but still impressive cabin spaces. The new Ford Escape offers Allen Park passengers more cabin space, which shows with more head, leg, and shoulder room in each row than what the Chevy Equinox has in store. Plus, the Ford Escape has more cargo space with the rear seats up or when you fold them down.
  • Having different options, especially different powertrains, makes your car search easier. The Ford Escape is available with four different engines, including offering a hybrid SUV, and has one engine packing up to 250 horsepower. The Chevy Equinox has only one engine that can't meet the efficiency, towing capacity, or power that comes from the Escape engine lineup.
  • These two crossovers have similar prices, although the Ford Escape has a more affordable starting price and comes with more features. Drivers can find a range of items in the Ford Escape, such as a parallel parking assist system and head-up display, not available in the Chevy Equinox.

Ford Escape vs. Honda CR-V

  • These crossover SUVs are again similar in their exterior dimensions, but the Ford Escape has a longer wheelbase that leads to more comfortable rides. Inside, the Ford Escape has some clear advantages, like more second-row legroom, a wider rear row, and more headroom up front, over the new Honda CR-V.
  • Both of these models have hybrid powertrains available, but the Ford Escape Hybrid near Riverview, MI provides efficiency without taking away from the capability you want. This hybrid engine packs 200 horsepower and can tow up to 2,000 pounds, which bests the 181 combined horsepower in the Honda CR-V Hybrid that does not offer towing.
  • The Ford Escape is a terrific value among crossover SUVs, which it shows in a few ways. The Ford Escape base trim has a more affordable price than the Honda CR-V base, but the Escape comes standard with items like Apple CarPlay and Blind Spot Information System, neither of which are standard in the CR-V.

Ford Escape vs. Jeep Cherokee

  • The Ford Escape prioritizes versatility, which is key to many car shoppers looking at crossover SUVs. This versatility is especially noticeable when comparing the Escape and Jeep Cherokee. The Ford Escape has more head and legroom in the two rows, and it has a max cargo capacity of 68.3 cubic feet, which easily holds more than the Jeep Cherokee and its 54.7 cubic feet of max cargo space.
  • Drivers enjoy the capability of Jeep SUVs, but the Ford Escape has similar power specs and traction from its all-wheel drive system. The Ford Escape also has two hybrid powertrains to consider, and these easily make it the more efficient SUV option of these two.
  • The Jeep Cherokee has a starting price close to $30,000, while the Ford Escape starts not much above $25,000. You wouldn't be able to guess this price difference when looking at the materials or standard features of these SUVs as the Ford Escape has items, like sliding second-row seats and blind-spot monitoring, not in the Cherokee.
