SUV Showdown: Toyota RAV4 or Ford Escape?

When searching for a new vehicle, many people choose an SUV. But choosing a type of vehicle is just the beginning. With so many manufacturers and models out there, it can be a tough choice to make. Here's how two of the top options--the Toyota RAV4 and the Ford Escape--compare, and why we like the Toyota RAV4:

  • The Toyota RAV4 is more efficient. The RAV4 has a combined MPG of 25, while the Escape has 24, yet the RAV4 still has a more powerful engine with higher horsepower and torque. Want even better efficiency? The 2018 Toyota RAV4 is available as a hybrid which makes up to 34 MPG city. The 2018 Ford Escape isn't available as a hybrid at all.
  • The Toyota RAV4 does more. The RAV4 has 38.4 cubic-feet of cargo volume, while the Escape has 34.3 cubic-feet of cargo volume. Need more room? The RAV4 can tow 3,500 pounds. The Escape? Only 2,000.
  • The Toyota RAV4 has more. The RAV4 comes standard with a power moonroof and has an optional Smart Key System. Perhaps most importantly, the RAV4 has more value, as even with all these advantages, the 2018 Toyota RAV4 is still more affordable than a similarly equipped Escape.
