The 2015 Ford Escape is a crossover SUV that gives you everything you could want in a family off-roader. Terry’s Ford of Peotone has always sought to supply Bradley drivers with the most well-packaged vehicles available, and the 2015 Escape fits the bill. But how does it hold up against competitors such as the 2015 Honda CR-V?
Peotone drivers who choose the 2015 Ford Escape will have the opportunity to choose from among the following three trims:
Bradley buyers who choose the 2015 Honda CR-V will need to pick from four trims, with separate prices for all-wheel-drive models:
Honda makes you pay more, but the features you receive are often the same as you’ll find in the Escape. There’s also no engine choice, so a car that costs almost $10,000 more will be powered with the same technology.
Honda has put all their eggs in one basket with the 2015 CR-V, which comes with a direct-injected four-cylinder engine with continuously variable transmission (CVT). Each model will get 185 hp, with all-wheel-drive models receiving a combined mileage rating of 28 mpg, and front-wheel-drive models getting a maximum of 29 mpg.
On the other hand, the 2015 Ford Escape offers three engine choices, so Bradley drivers can prioritize the features that mean the most to them. You can receive:
The Ford provides the gift of choice. Need power? You got it — the Escape can tow up to 3,500 pounds when properly equipped, while the CR-V pulls a maximum of 1,500 pounds. Need efficiency? Go for the Duratec. The choice is yours with the 2015 Escape.
Both vehicles feature a great selection of interior features, with speed control, MP3 compatibility and a CD player, and air conditioning all being utilized in a roomy cabin with deep, comfy seats.
However, the CR-V makes you pay more for certain features, charging up to $1,500 for an integrated navigation system in the EX-L, in contrast to a fee of only $795 with the Escape. You’ll also enjoy lower sound quality thanks to a maximum of 7 speakers in the CR-V, while you can get up to 10 in the Escape.
Both vehicles include several advanced safety features to keep you and your family protected at all times, including:
With the 2015 Escape, you’ll be able to take advantage of Ford’s innovative MyKey system, which lets you set individual settings for the car depending on which key is being used. This is great when you’re sharing your vehicle with a younger family member, since a maximum speed limit can be set to keep them free from the dangers of speeding.
