2018 Ford Escape vs. 2018 Honda CR-V


Miles City and Bozeman drivers who are on the prowl for a new crossover will likely end up considering both the 2018 Honda CR-V and the 2018 Ford Escape. With superior efficiency and more feature-rich trims, the 2018 Honda CR-V thoroughly outclasses the 2018 Ford Escape in a variety of ways. Let’s take a closer look at the Ford Escape vs. Honda CR-V side by side.

Powertrains & MPG Ratings

Whether you’re a commuter on the highway or a driver who spends a lot of time on city streets, you want to pick a crossover that can go the distance. Compare the specs for the Ford Escape vs. Honda CR-V:

  • Honda CR-V: The 2018 Honda CR-V comes standard with a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine that produces 184 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque. Moving up to the EX gets you a 1.5L turbo 4-cylinder rated at 190 hp and 179 lb-ft of torque. With 2WD, the standard CVT, and optional turbo engine, the CR-V earns up to 28 mpg city/34 mpg highway*.
  • Ford Escape: In comparison, the 2018 Ford Escape offers three engines: a 168-hp 2.5.L 4-cylinder, a 179-hp 1.5L turbo 4-cylinder, and a 245-hp 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder. Although more powerful, the Escape simply cannot match the CR-V’s efficiency. Its highest ratings come in at 21 mpg city/29 mpg highway.

Safety Features

Inside the 2018 Ford Escape, you’re unlikely to get the advanced features that you would with the CR-V. In fact, even if you select a top-of-the-line Escape Titanium trim, you won’t enjoy the types of safety technologies found in the CR-V EX. The following Honda Sensing features are standard on the CR-V EX—several of these aren’t even available as upgrades on the Ford Escape:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS)
  • Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM)
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
