Advantages on the 2018 Ford Escape
Everyone knows that when it comes to looking for a new SUV, performance is important. The 2018 Ford Escape provides assurance that you're getting a vehicle that has plenty of power. In the 2018 Escape, the standard engine is a 2.5L Four-Cylinder that offers 168 horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque. This engine offers much more power than the 2018 Toyota C-HR, which has a 2.0L Four-Cylinder engine. From the standard engine, the 2018 C-HR can only provide 144 horsepower and 139 pound-feet of torque. Of course, power isn't everything, and that is demonstrated by the 2018 Toyota C-HR's EPA-estimated combined fuel economy of 29 mpg. In that respect, the 2017 Ford Escape trails behind with a combined fuel economy of 24 mpg.
A benefit to having a powerful vehicle is that it is likely going to be able to tow a trailer if you need it to. The incredible power in the 2018 Ford Escape gives it the ability to tow up to 1,500 pounds when properly equipped, so if you have something that is particularly bulky that won't fit in the interior, you can hook up a trailer and go! However, thanks to the 67.8 cubic feet maximum cargo volume with the rear seats folded, it isn't likely you'll encounter many items that won't fit inside the vehicle. If you need all five seats for passengers, you still have a spacious 34.3 cubic feet to play with. In the 2018 Toyota C-HR, the interior cargo volume tops out at 36.4 cubic feet.
