2015 Ford Escape vs. 2015 Toyota RAV4 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Escape offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Toyota RAV4, with comparable head- and legroom. The Ford Escape offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota RAV4, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Escape as you will with the Toyota RAV4, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Ford Escape is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota RAV4. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Ford Escape and the Toyota RAV4 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Ford Escape is about the same width as the Toyota RAV4. When looking at overall length, the Ford Escape takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota RAV4.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Ford Escape transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Toyota RAV4.

Handling
The Ford Escape has a significantly larger turning radius than the Toyota RAV4, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Ford Escape is clearly the choice over the Toyota RAV4 for pulling heavy loads. The Ford Escape has a little more horsepower than the Toyota RAV4.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Ford Escape and the Toyota RAV4. The Ford Escape has less cargo space than the Toyota RAV4, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.
