Behind the grille of the 2018 Ford Escape S there is a 4-cylinder 2.5-liter engine, which is slightly bigger than the 4-cylinder 2.4 liter i-VTEC found underneath the hood of the 2018 Honda CR-V LX. Both of these engines are paired with automatic transmissions, but the 6-speed transmission of the 2018 Ford Escape comes furnished with SelectShift. This feature allows the operator the ability to choose between fully automatic shifting or semi-automatic clutchless shifting. The 2018 Ford Escape S has room for 15.7 gallons of fuel, while the 2018 Honda CR-V LX maxes out at 14 gallons. When you drive the 2018 Ford Escape S, you'll be traveling on steel wheels, unlike the aluminum alloy wheels found on the 2018 Honda CR-V LX. The Escape also has a premium wheel option that the CR-V LX doesn't bring you.

The 2018 Ford Escape S is 81.8 inches wide and the CR-V LX is only a smaller 73 inches wide. The Escape's wheelbase is 105.9 inches while the wheelbase of the Honda CR-V LX measures 104.7 inches. This brings passengers more space in the Escape, allowing for 43.1 inches of legroom in the front while the CR-V LX only brings you 41.3 inches of front legroom. You will also find that the 2018 Ford Escape S has the advantage over this Honda CR-V when it comes to safety. This is because the Escape possesses a driver's knee airbag, which the Honda CR-V doesn't. Ford also has your back longer, as this vehicle comes with a roadside assistance program which lasts five years or 60,000 miles instead of the three year, 36,000-mile roadside assistance program that Honda offers.
