What Does the new Ford Escape Have to Offer Over the Competition?

Here at Holzhauer Auto & Motorsports Group in Nashville, IL, we want to prove to you just how useful and unique the Ford Escape is by comparing it side-by-side against a well-known competitor in its class: the new Toyota RAV4! Both are quite formidable midsize models, with each bringing something to the table, but where does the advantage lie with Ford? Holzhauer Auto & Motorsports Group is here to investigate!

Ford Escape vs Toyota RAV4

  • Price and Warranty: The Ford Escape is a rewarding vehicle for those who wish to save and begins at a starting price more than $1,000 less than the RAV4. Likewise, you will find the warranty coverage of the Ford brand to be quite comprehensive with five years of emergency roadside assistance. Whereas, The RAV4 comes backed by only two years of roadside assistance through Toyota.
  • Fuel Economy: Interestingly, while Toyota models are often known for their long-term fuel efficiency, the Ford Escape demonstrates a keen ability to hold more fuel in the long-run with a fuel tank capacity of almost 16 gallons. He RAV4 falls short of this and can hold up to 14.5 gallons of fuel.
  • Capability: While the inline four-cylinder (I4) engine of the RAV4 might contribute a bit more horsepower, you might find that the I4 engine of the Ford Escape is more capable overall and can tow up to 3,500 pounds, which is enough to tow small trailers and campers alike. The RAV4 does not offer as much equipment to boost its towing capabilities and even its most advanced trim level can only tow up to 1,750 pounds.
