Other SUVs to Think About When You’re Looking at the Escape

The 2018 Ford Escape has a lot going for it in the compact SUV segment. It features a sportier demeanor than most rivals, above average cargo room, excellent towing capacity, and an interior that features a more upscale design and materials than many competitors.

The base price for the Escape is $23,850, which is about average for the class. In our rankings of compact SUVs, the 2018 Escape holds a spot just below the segment leaders with an overall score of 8.6 out of 10. The 2018 model is nearly identical to the 2017 Ford Escape that was a finalist for both our Best Compact SUV for the Money and Best Compact SUVs for Families awards.

The Escape isn’t perfect, however. Most class rivals easily beat the fuel economy of Escapes equipped with a base engine, and a few higher-ranking competitors have a lower starting price.

Take a look at the following slides to see some other models you should consider when you’re in the market for an Escape.
