Escape vs CR-V: Technology Features

2018 Ford Escape Technology PackageThe Escape and CR-V offer many of the same features on their infotainment systems. Upgrade to the most advanced systems, and you'll find Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ to keep you connected. Just plug in your iPhone or Android device, and you can use your favorite apps from the vehicle touchscreen.

Keep in mind, though, that while voice command comes standard in the Escape system, you won't find it on the CR-V without upgrading to the advanced system. Test drivers also find the optional touchscreen in the Escape more intuitive and quicker to respond than the screen in the CR-V. 

Engine Specs: A Thrilling Performance

Looking for power in your next crossover SUV? The Honda CR-V is adequate for your daily driving, with an available turbocharged 1.5L 4-cylinder that puts out 190 horsepower. However, you'll get more thrills from the Ford Escape, whose available turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder generates up to 245 horsepower.

That extra power gives the Ford Escape an advantage in terms of towing, too. The CR-V can tow 1,500 pounds when properly equipped, but the Escape can trailer up to 3,500 pounds when fitted with the Class II Trailer Tow Package. So, next time you're ready for some outdoors adventure, hook up a small travel trailer and head on your way!

Features for Your Convenience

2018 Ford Escape PerformanceStaying comfortable is easy in the Escape and CR-V with the available dual-zone automatic climate control. Driver and front passenger can each program the temperature of their "zone" to their liking, so no matter how humid those Central Florida summers get, you can enjoy a cool cabin.

Both rides offer power driver's seats with power lumbar to give your lower back support on longer drives. They also include memory functions, too, so multiple drivers can program and find their exact preferences with ease.

You can get power passenger seats as well, but they can be configured in more ways in the Ford SUV. In the Escape, you can get 10-way power-adjustable passenger seats, but the adjustments on the Honda CR-V are limited to four ways. This gives the front-row rider in the Escape more ways to customize their comfort.

Ford Escape vs Honda CR-V: Choose Your Crossover

For many Maitland, Orlando, and Winter Park drivers, judging our Ford Escape vs. Honda CR-V comparison will be tough. These two crossovers are well matched in a variety of ways, and each has its own advantages as well.

However, if you want responsive technology, more towing muscle, and comfy passenger seats, the Escape has a lot to offer. Schedule a test drive at Peacock Ford and see what you think!
