Have You Been Thinking About Buying a 2014 Ford Escape in the Boulder Area?
If you are looking for a compact SUV in the Boulder area, then you have the benefit of having several models to choose from. The 2014 Ford Escape is one of those options, and it is getting some attention this year for its standard and available conveniences:
- MyFord Touch Infotainment system
- A rearview camera
- Active park assist
Despite these features, the Escape falls well short of its competitor the 2014 Honda CR-V in terms of performance, safety ratings, fuel economy, and even technology.
Under the hood of the 2014 Honda CR-V is a standard 2.4L I4 engine that is capable of 185 hp for maintaining and reaching highway speeds with ease. The 2014 Ford Escape’s standard engine is a 2.5L I4 that only puts out 168 hp, which means that it takes the new Escape a bit longer to reach freeway speeds.
Honda’s superior design and engineering doesn’t stop with the powertrain — every aspect of the CR-V is meticulously crafted to provide a superior ride. The 2014 CR-V is safer than the 2014 Escape — with a 5-star safety rating over a 4-star rating — as well as more spacious, more convenient, and more entertaining. This table represents a side-by-side comparison of how the 2014 Honda CR-V outclasses the 2014 Ford Escape:
