2020 Ford Escape in Westland, MIIf you are shopping for a crossover in Westland, MI, there's a good chance the 2020 Ford Escape and the 2020 Honda CR-V have come up in your searches. Keep reading to find out which SUV comes out on top in terms of power and technology features.


The 2020 Honda CR-V and the 2020 Ford Escape are both capable SUVs with plenty of power to accomplish daily tasks like school pickup and grocery shopping, but which vehicle has superior engine options? The 2020 Honda CR-V features one gas engine configuration that delivers 190 horsepower and one hybrid powertrain that produces up to 212 horsepower. In contrast, the all-new 2020 Ford Escape offers four unique powertrains, including two gas engines, a traditional hybrid powertrain, and a plug-in-hybrid configuration. The Escape's most powerful engine has a maximum 250 horsepower and enough capability to generate 280 lb-ft of torque. As the Escape's engine offers so much more might than the CR-V's, the Ford crossover is able to tow 2,000 pounds more than the Honda SUV's lightweight 1,500-pound hauling capacity.


Technology has become integrated into every aspect of our lives, which is why both Ford and Honda have built their Escape and CR-V to include advanced safety and convenience technology. However, only one crossover can be crowned the king of technology. For families looking to keep little ones busy on long road trips, the 2020 Ford Escape features a FordPass Connect™ service that offers 4G LTE Wi-Fi for up to 10 devices. The all-new Escape also comes standard with a Blind Spot Information System (BLIS®) with Cross-Traffic Alert as part of the Ford Co-Pilot360 suite of technology. Shoppers looking for standard Wi-Fi connectivity and blind spot monitoring on the 2020 Honda CR-V will be sorely disappointed, as those features are only available as add-on packages. Available premium options for the Escape such as Active Park Assist 2.0, Waze integration, and Ford+Alexa are nowhere to be found on the CR-V.
