What are the Advantages of the New Ford Escape at Brandon Ford in Tampa FL?

We mentioned affordability in our introduction, so let’s begin with that. See, the 2017 Ford Escape has a starting price almost $1,000 cheaper than the starting price of the 2017 Toyota RAV4. That’s a huge advantage right there, but it doesn’t mean anything if that affordability doesn’t also combine with capability. But fear not – in the case of the 2017 Escape, it unequivocally does.

That’s because the new Ford Escape gives you the choice between three powerful and efficient engines, with a maximum power rating of up to 245 horsepower. Conversely, you only get one engine option to choose from with the new Toyota RAV4, and it can only provide you with up to 176 horsepower.

Unsurprisingly, the new Escape’s additional power also leads to additional capability. In this case, the 2017 Ford Escape can tow up to 3,500 pounds, while the 2017 Toyota RAV4 can only tow up to 1,500 pounds.
