2015 Ford Escape vs. 2015 Honda CR-V

You Should Read This Before Driving a 2015 Ford Escape in Central Illinois

If you’re shopping for your next crossover in Central Illinois, the 2015 Ford Escape is probably already on your list. It may not be the most well-equipped or stylish crossover, but the Escape isn’t a bad options thanks to its 168-hp four-cylinder engine, 31 highway mpg, 22 city mpg, and features like a rearview camera and Ford Sync. With many other amenities available, the Escape could be the right SUV for you, but the entry-level S trim’s features are quite limited. The MyFord Touch infotainment system, for instance, requires both a trim level upgrade and a package add-on to the Escape.

Do you want the latest in technology features on a fuel-efficient crossover? Do you want it without having to upgrade? If that sounds impossible, we understand, but the 2015 Honda CR-V does just that. Available at Central Illinois Honda Dealers, the new CR-V was awarded the 2015 Sport/Utility of the Year from Motor Trend. Honda’s crossover easily outpaces the Escape when it comes to fuel economy, power, and features, too. Under the hood is a 185-hp 2.4L four-cylinder engine, keeping the 2015 CR-V 2WD fuel efficient with an EPA-estimated 34 highway and 27 city mpg,* well above the Escape’s numbers. And Honda sets a new standard when it comes to features, too. The basic CR-V LX comes with Bluetooth, a rearview camera, and Honda’s exclusive i-MID infotainment system.
