PR Newswire

RHINELANDER, Wis., Oct. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Rhinelander Honda is committed to being a primary resource for people looking for their first or next Honda car, truck or SUV. They have employed a series of online tools to make the research phase of vehicle shopping as painless as possible. During that research process, customers are often tasked with comparing vehicles on a head-to-head basis. Trying to find those measurements and scores can be very difficult, especially when comparing similar vehicles between two different automakers. The staff at Rhinelander Honda has done some of that leg work for its customers and compared two of the most popular crossover SUVs on the market today; the 2014 Honda CR-V vs. the 2014 Ford Escape.

The 2014 Honda CR-V available in Rhinelander has been one of the most popular crossover SUVs since it was released to the public sometime ago. The new CR-V, like its predecessors, offers one of the most compliant and comfortable rides in its automotive industry segment. One of several things that have made crossover SUVs more popular than older, more rough-and-tumble designs has been the unibody construction of the Honda CR-V's frame. This design feature allows the CR-V to be much more nimble through tight spaces like parking structures or parking lots. Drivers that have never driven an SUV before will have a very small learning curve coming from a sedan.

As for the differences of the Honda CR-V and the Ford Escape, a few jump right off of the page to those deciding which vehicle to finally take home with them. The 2014 Honda CR-V is powered by a 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine that produces 185 horsepower while recording more than 20 miles per gallon during city driving conditions and breaking the 30-mile per gallon barrier while driving on the highway, according to Environmental Protection Agency estimates. There are more engine options available for the 2014 Ford Edge; however those are only available on some of the higher priced upper trims. The base engine of the 2014 Edge is a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder that makes 168 horsepower while getting very similar EPA fuel-economy scores to the 2014 Honda CR-V.
