The crossover SUV is quickly becoming the vehicle of choice for many American families, thanks to its handling, spacious seating, and versatility. We've found that the models that handle and perform well are also efficient, too! That's why many drivers throughout the Portland, Scarborough, and South Portland region are drawn to the new Ford Escape and new Honda CR-V. Here at Rowe Ford Westbrook, we are eager to share the similarities and important differences between both models so that you can make an informed purchasing decision.

Performance Comparison Between the New Escape and CR-V Models

When comparing performance and efficiency between the Ford Escape and Honda CR-V, you will need to keep in mind that both models offer various engine options that can affect both aspects. If you want to experience a dynamic drive with unmatched performance, we recommend the Ford Escape's 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. Although this engine is slightly less fuel efficient than its Honda and additional Escape trim model counterparts, it does boast an unparalleled 245 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque for your Westbrook, Maine adventures.


The Ford Escape is undoubtedly fun to drive, with agile steering and handling that is reminiscent of a Ford sedan. Whether you are out for a Maine joy ride with friends or simply want to enhance your evening commute, the 2017 Escape serves as an exceptional travel companion.

Comparing Safety and Technology in the 2017 Escape and 2017 CR-V

Many modern SUVs come equipped with an extensive selection of technology features, some of which even work to improve the vehicle's safety performance. The 2017 Escape comes fitted with a driver knee airbag, Ford's MyKey system, and blind-spot mirrors, all of which are standard features on the Ford Escape. The 2017 CR-V does not come equipped with these safety systems as a standard feature. The new Escape SUV also offers a SYNC® 3 touchscreen infotainment system, standard on the Titanium model and optional on the Escape SE trim.


Additionally, the Ford Escape offers a 5-star overall crash rating, as well as 5-star ratings for front and side protection from the prestigious Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The 2017 Honda CR-V has not been crash-tested by a third party yet. When you're hauling kids, recreational equipment, and friends around the Westbrook region, safety is - and should remain - a priority. You'll enjoy excellent safety, technology, and performance in the 2017 Ford Escape, no matter which trim level you choose.
