Don Chalmers Ford Investigates

Turning your attention to the 2018 Ford Escape and the 2018 Honda CR-V during research? Both models have a lot to offer drivers in the Rio Rancho, NM area, but ultimately only one vehicle will satisfy what you're looking for with an automotive upgrade. We peel back the curtains at Don Chalmers Ford to study what each option brings to the table, going through the categories you value for an introspective look at how the 2018 Ford Escape compares to its Honda competition.

Compare - Ford Escape Performance

Offering three engine options to just two powertrain configurations in the Honda CR-V, the Ford Escape shows off more burst with an edge in explosiveness generated underneath the hood. A 2.0-liter turbocharged EcoBoost engine in the new Ford Escape creates 245 horsepower, beating what the top turbocharged CR-V motor comes up with at is maximum potential. With a Class II tow package, the new Ford Escape can tow up to 3,500 pounds, exactly 2,000 pounds more than the new Honda CR-V can support at its best and with the proper equipment.

Compare - Ford Escape Technology

Award-winning SYNC 3 infotainment, available in the new Ford Escape, is our preference when considering advanced technology between the two SUVs in question. This system is practical, easy to configure and responsive in real time, hosting standard voice command that the new CR-V doesn't include in its base model. A standard CD player, also not available in the base CR-V, means you get to enjoy some of your favorite music entertainment from the starting model upward in the Escape lineup.

Compare - Ford Escape Value

The new Ford Escape comes at a more impressive value than the Honda CR-V across trim level lineups, with a lower price tag when taking comparative models into account. This begins with the base MSRPs for both SUVs, as the new 2018 Ford Escape starts at $23,850. The new Honda CR-V starts at a more expensive price tag of $24,150. When considering the new Ford Escape's advantages in performance, standard equipment, technology and much more, these differences in value really stand out.
