2015 Ford Escape vs. 2014 Honda CR-V
A lot of Ford fans are very excited about the release of the 2015 Ford Escape this year and we certainly understand why. Ford made some serious changes and improvements to the Escape for this model year. These changes helped to push Ford to the top of the very competitive compact SUV category.
One vehicle that is always being compared to the Escape is the Honda CR-V. So we decided to put these vehicles up against each other head-to-head in our 2015 Ford Escape vs. 2014 Honda CR-V comparison test.
In the end, the 2 vehicles matched up very close. However, the Ford Escape did beat out the Honda CR-V in most of the categories that we compared. So that is why we strongly believe that the Ford Escape truly is the better vehicle.
2015 Ford Escape Albert Lea MN
There are many highlight features on the 2015 Ford Escape that we are excited about. We’d like to share some our favorite new features with you to show you why we truly believe that the 2015 Ford Escape Albert Lea MN is the best compact SUV in its class.
Since the Ford Escape comes standard with EcoBoost on both of its engine options you wont have to sacrifice any of the power that you like for the good fuel economy that you want. The Escape is also one of the only vehicles in the compact SUV class to come standard with a 6-speed transmission. This 6-speed with SelectShift technology ensures that you’ll always have a smooth ride while you're shifting through the gears. This vehicle is offered with both FWD and 4WD.
This vehicle has a sleek and stylish design that looks kind of like a hatchback. Ford designed this vehicle to not only look good, but also to be aerodynamic to help improve the fuel economy. However, the Escape is eco friendly in more ways than just fuel economy. For example, the foam used in the seat cushions and head rests is derived from soybeans so it is sustainable. Also, the carpeting in all of Ford’s models is made using post-consumer recycled material.
One feature that we think will really stand out to drivers that have families with children is the foot activated liftgate. This feature allows you to open your back liftgate by simply waving your foot in front of it. So you’ll never have to worry about setting your grocery bags or young children down again to open the liftgate.
