2018 Ford Escape vs 2018 Honda CR-V

Serving Hammond, New Orleans, and Baton Rouge, LA

Small SUVs are the choice of millions of American buyers. The best of these vehicles provide a winning mix of capacity versatility, and sportiness. Two of the best models are the 2018 Ford Escape and the 2018 Honda CR-V. They boast spacious seating for five, excellent build quality a and high resale value. They both let you choose from several trim levels to fit your budget and lifestyle. We urge you to test-drive both – doing so will convince you that the Ford Escape is a better value, more powerful and more fun to drive.

Top Engine

The Ford Escape’s top engine is a 2.0-liter turbo-4 EcoBoost with 245 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque. By contrast, a 1.5-liter turbo-4 that puts out 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque is the Honda CR-V’s best engine. While the Ford’s engine is matched to a 6-speed automatic transmission with SelectShift, the CR-V must soldier on with a continuously variable transmission. Forward-wheel drive is standard on both vehicles. Honda buyers can opt for all-wheel-drive models, whereas the Ford offers four-wheel-drive versions.

Dimensions and Capacities

The 2018 Escape is wider (81.8 vs 73.0 inches), has a longer wheelbase (105.9 vs 104.7 inches), and is shorter (66.3 vs 66.5 inches). Escape has a towing capacity of 3,500-pounds, a ton more than the 1,500-pound CR-V capacity. Escape also provides more rear head room (43.1 vs 41.3 inches), front head room (39.9 vs 37.8 inches), and a bigger fuel tank (16.3 vs 14.0 inches).

Sync-3

Ford’s touch-screen infotainment system keeps getting better, and the latest, Sync 3, is the biggest improvement yet – responsive and easy to use. Sync-3 is standard on Escape SEL and Titanium trims, and optional on SE models. It gives you Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and an 8-inch screen. The display screen on the Honda is smaller, only 7-inches wide.
