Versus Toyota RAV4

Interested in a new compact SUV? See how the Ford Escape stacks up against the competition here at Motor Mile Ford in Christiansburg, VA

Contrary to their name, compact SUVs are among the largest segments in the automotive industry today. And of all the compact SUVs on the market, the Ford Escape is easily one of the most compelling options out there for drivers here in Virginia. Now, we may be a bit biased in our opinion of the Ford Escape, but here at our Christiansburg, VA Ford dealership, this compact SUV manages to catch the eye of nearly every customer who walks through our showroom doors. And in the interest of showing you just what makes the new Ford Escape so appealing, we've pitted it against one of its closest segment competitors, the Toyota RAV4.

Power and Performance

If you're in the market for a car that can offer you engaging driving experiences, you'll be much happier with the new Ford Escape than the Toyota RAV4. When properly equipped, the Ford Escape offers more horsepower and torque than the comparably equipped Toyota RAV4. In fact, the Ford Escape Titanium trim even boasts a 0 to 60 mph time of just 7.1 seconds, which is quite quick for its class, making it easy for you to get up to speed with ease when commuting on I-81 here in Christiansburg, VA.

Technology and Safety

When it comes to tech sophistication, the Ford Escape easily outmatches the Toyota RAV4, and it all starts with the infotainment system. Now, if you're like many drivers in nearby Radford, VA, you're likely looking for a car that pairs seamlessly with your favorite mobile devices so you can easily access your favorite apps, music, and navigation info on the go. Well, while the Ford Escape offers a SYNC 3 infotainment system with support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, the infotainment system on the Toyota RAV4 doesn't have such features, making it pairing your favorite devices a real chore.

Special Trims and Options

At Motor Mile Ford, we've had the pleasure to serve drivers from Floyd, VA to Salem, VA and all points in between in our many years in business, and if there's one thing we've learned about our customers in all that time, it's this; drivers around here have discerning tastes. So, when it comes to meeting the high expectations of Virginia drivers, the Ford Escape goes above and beyond with its available Ford Escape Titanium trim. Outfitted with premium touches like a hands-free, power-operated lift gate, leather upholstery, interior accent lighting, automated paralleled and perpendicular parking functionality, and even smart utility features like a 110-volt household style outlet inside its spacious, well-appointed cabin, the Ford Escape Titanium is a compelling option for drivers who love a bit of luxury. By comparison, the Toyota RAV4's range-topping Platinum trim doesn't even offer leather seats, leaving its interior feeling markedly less upscale.

Technology and Safety

As far as in-car tech goes, the Ford Escape is on the cutting edge, and if you need evidence of that, you need only look to its innovative SYNC 3 infotainment system. Featuring support for Apple Car Play and Android Auto, the SYNC 3 system makes it only too easy to pair your favorite mobile devices to the Ford Escape and enjoy your favorite apps, play music, and make calls on the go. By comparison, the infotainment system equipped to the Nissan Rogue only features the less sophisticated Siri Eyes Free technology and no support for Android compatibility.

Special options and Trims

If you're like many drivers in nearby Salem, VA, you want a car with a few extra premium features. Fortunately, the available Ford Escape Titanium trim is well-equipped to provide for drivers of discerning tastes. Outfitted with highly sought-after features like leather upholstery, 10-way power-adjustable front seating with driver memory settings, navigation, and a 10-speaker Sony sound system, the Ford Escape Titanium is an upscale compact SUV for the modern Virginian driver. On the other hand, the Nissan Rogue SL trim has some similar features, but only offers a less-powerful 9-speaker Bose sound system.
