  • If you are on a tight budget, the 2017 Ford Escape and its more wallet-friendly price tag provides financial ease.
  • Complementing its spacious cabin, the 2017 Ford Escape is able tow a maximum weight of 3,500 pounds, affording you the ability to bring all your toys along for the ride; the latest Toyota RAV4, however, is limited with a towing capability of nearly half that.
  • Both SUVs can effortlessly adjust to the elements with their respective drive systems, but if you are wanting to carve mountain sides and maneuver torturous muddy trails, you might consider investing in the 4WD assuredness of the Ford Escape versus the AWD equipped Toyota RAV4.
  • Both SUVs ease the process of loading cargo with their power liftgates; however, the Toyota RAV4 forces you to fumble for keys and push a button to open its hatch, while the Ford Escape lets you simply swipe your foot to open the rear.
