2018 Ford Escape Vs. 2018 Toyota RAV4

Adventuring isn’t for the faint of heart. When you leave home with a goal in mind, there’s an inherent risk. However, it’s also the source of some of the greatest and most rewarding feelings you’re able to experience. We’re getting philosophical because today we’re highlighting two vehicles that are built for adventures big and small. Compact crossovers allow you to truly roll with the punches and experience the world. Whether your adventure is an outdoor wilderness trek or a big presentation across town, you’ll find the combination of cargo space, capability and interior refinement on vehicles in this class to be a welcome ally.
The 2018 Ford Escape perfectly sums up this ambition. By combining the handling and efficiency of a car with the versatility of a truck-based SUV, you get the best of both worlds. You’re ready for anything. Today, we’re comparing the 2018 Ford Escape to the 2018 Toyota RAV4, a class veteran with a chip on its shoulder. Let’s see how they measure up!
