The 2018 Ford Escape and 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe are very closely matched, and yet the Ford still pulls ahead by offering:

  • Superior fuel economy
  • Greater engine range
  • Enhanced active park assist
  • SYNC 3 infotainment

Let’s take a closer look at just how the new Ford Escape manages to make its mark.

Engine Lineup

True to Ford form, the new Ford Escape encourages drivers to make the vehicle their own through a choice of three engines:

  • 2.5L Four-Cylinder: Makes up to 168 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque.
  • Turbocharged 1.5L Four-Cylinder: Makes up to 179 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque.
  • Turbocharged 2.0L Four-Cylinder: Makes up to 245 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque.

Such freedom allows the opportunity to indulge in top-tier performance or push efficiency scores right up to 23 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway with the SE trim.

The 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe adopts a cookie-cutter formula, with a one-size-fits-all V6 coming across the lineup to make up to just 18 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.

Enhanced Active Park Assist

Whether you’re parallel parking in Plainfield, reversing into a space in Aurora, or finding a suitable spot in Naperville, the new Escape makes parking easier in ways the Hyundai Santa Fe cannot thanks to its Enhanced Active Park Assist Feature.

It includes:

  • Parallel Parking
  • Park-Out Assist
  • Reverse Perpendicular Parking
  • Side Sensing System

You’ll be alerted when a suitable space is found and then guided in — the car itself can take care of steering.

SYNC 3 Infotainment

SYNC 3 is a Ford exclusive that brings together some of the most sophisticated connectivity and infotainment features in the world, including:

  • FordPass
  • SYNC AppLink
  • Ford+Alexa
  • SYNC Connect FordPass
  • SYNC Connect Wi-Fi Hotspot
  • SYNC 3 Android Auto Compatibility
