Compare the 2017 Ford Escape and the 2017 Honda CR-V for Your Lodi, WI Adventures

The crossover SUV is gaining ground as the vehicle of choice for many families throughout the Lodi, Wisconsin region, and it is easy to see why. The crossover segment offers dynamic performance and handling as well as superior versatility for your daily excursions. Here at Bushnell Ford Inc., we've discovered that many modern crossover vehicles are super-efficient while still providing the cabin space and adaptability needed for active families. Many Wisconsin drivers are drawn to the new Ford Escape and the new Honda CR-V, and that's why the Bushnell Ford Inc. team is pleased to offer a comparison between these crossover SUV models to aid in your purchasing decision.

New Escape and New CR-V Performance Comparison

Many Wisconsin drivers prefer to skip right to the performance specifications to decide between two vehicles in the same segment. After all, your vehicle needs to perform as good as it looks. Keep in mind that when drawing a comparison between Ford Escape and Honda CR-V models, you will need to consider the variety of engine options and configurations that affect both performance and efficiency. If you crave a dynamic drive with the ultimate performance, we recommend the 2017 Ford Escape that comes equipped with an ambitious 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. This engine is only slightly less fuel efficient than the 2017 Honda CR-V and other Ford Escape trim package counterparts, and it has the benefit of an unrivaled 245 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque to enhance your Lodi, Wisconsin travels.

Additionally, the 2017 Escape is fun to drive, offering an agile steering and handling experience that can be compared to that of a Ford sedan. This is not an easy or common feat for a crossover SUV, and that is why the Bushnell Ford Inc. team believes the new Escape makes an exceptional Wisconsin adventure vehicle.

Safety and Technology Comparison Between the 2017 Escape and 2017 CR-V

Most contemporary SUVs feature a wide range of technology enhancements, and many of those features improve safety performance for your Wisconsin outings. The Ford Escape 2017 models boast Ford's MyKey system, blind-spot mirrors, and a driver's knee airbag, all standard equipment for each new trim package. In comparison, the 2017 CR-V does not feature these safety systems as standard equipment. The new Escape builds upon this technology and offers an innovative SYNC® 3 touchscreen infotainment center, optional on the Ford Escape SE trim and standard on the Ford Escape Titanium model.

The Ford Escape also gives you extra peace of mind thanks to its 5-star overall crash rating from the respected Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The Escape also received a 5-star front and side protection rating from the IIHS program. At this time, the 2017 Honda CR-V has not received a crash-test rating from an independent third party. Whether you choose to load up your crossover with recreational gear, family, or friends, safety is likely your top priority, and no matter which 2017 Ford Escape model you choose, you can expect quality safety, technology, and handling for your Lodi excursions.
